Well I went from nuclear disasters to the habits of highly empathic people and I’m feeling positively inspired by the journey! Even though there may be masses of sleepy people who have no idea of how their world could be slipping away, there are those who not only notice and care, but who are doing something about it. And the ones who are doing the damage are a tiny part of the overall population, I think they know that their days are numbered and are simply trying to rake in as much as they can while they can.
Empathy is a key ingredient as we grow and develop into the future humans that will have a continuing and positive presence on this beautiful planet. And it is a quality that can be developed, I relate strongly to the habits of HEP’s (highly empathic people) and have tended to go in this direction all my life. But anyone can do it, those who are severely disconnected from their emotions are going to have a challenging journey, but I do believe it possible for all people if they have a strong enough desire to go there.
The author of the article at the end of this post, Roman Krznaric, describes the twentieth century as the Age of Introspection and says that the twenty-first should be the Age of Empathy. I agree heartily with this viewpoint, it certainly matches my path through life which was extremely introverted for many years as I dove deep in my healing journey. Then slowly but surely I began to get the sense that I needed to move more into connection with others, the messages kept coming, and over time that is the path I have taken. My very special country town has helped me to reach a point where I am fulfilling this part of my life in a way that truly amazes me at times, in a good way!
There is a lot more I could say on this topic but I will save it for future posts, in the meantime have a read of this inspiring article, it has links to lots of grass-roots movements that are helping to create fundamental change in the world. A wonderful resource!

I was looking for an article on empathy on Facebook that I thought might provide the inspiration for a post, when I found a story which is such a nightmare, and unfortunately its no fairy tale. It isn’t the first time I’ve heard about the cover ups at Fukushima in Japan but I had no idea of the extent of what is going on there. Not long ago I shared a video called “Losing Nemo” in a post of the same name, I wonder if the makers of that were considering incidents like what is happening at Fukushima when they talked about huge dead zones in the sea by 2048.
Apparently radioactive water is leaking into the ocean at an alarming rate, and what’s more it has been doing so for the last two and a half years while the company TEPCO has been in a state of denial. Being in denial as an individual can have severe consequences for that person and even the people closest to them, but at the end of the day it’s their responsibility and their journey. You can’t make them change, just try to detach and let them live their own life. But we are talking here about a company that is responsible for the safety and well being of countless individuals, if there is another explosion, and there might be, we could be talking about the entire Northern Hemisphere being affected.
This is the kind of insanity that I seem to encounter whenever I look at how the dominant culture is running the world, truly it does look like we have a bit of a death wish going on here doesn’t it! But maybe this level of insanity is required for the sleepers to wake, I just hope that we do wake up in time. And that we have the sense to utilise the true capacities of the human race, it’s time now if it ever was, for us to become future humans!
