Wishing you and your loved ones to be able to breathe in the abundant love that is here for us right now! Then exhale all fears doubts, and surrender our mind’s idea of life in the past or time. Every breath we take in, can we give back out to the world loving compassion, in a spirit of contribution?
During this pandemic period, we have realized the key is to go within and notice the “pause” between each breath metaphorically— where we each are in our lives here now.
World Team Now continues to find our truth in nature. The photo also represents our campaigns beginning with: the blue (ocean and sky), and the green (of nature), and the biodiversity in between. Nature and the highest part of our own human nature need to breathe. How do we take greater consideration in our “global economies” for our future? Learning to better listen to, not only, our own voices within, but also the rising “collective consciousness” is a task for us all. To live in consideration of the bigger picture that we are interconnected, and each of our choices matter, as everything changes.
World Team Now has focused on demonstrating solutions, but we have been a small handful of people that planted the seeds around the world: a possible “vision” for the future that might have more in balance with nature. Our public electric vehicle chargers in California, and solar net meters in New York, were a small start. But the vision has been for a literal “World Team,” and the winning of the human race is to truly realize the potential of our species as human “beings”.
Organizing and acting for things we experience as “wrong” prescribes a judgment, that something is “right” when it is meant to merely raise awareness or move us to choose our truth for action or stillness. The patterns in movement, of humanity, are changing along with the climate. We propose to rise even above what we “own” whether that be a possession, our own creed, which has carried us through this life journey. We are being asked to remember or envision what indeed is the inspiration for a deep breath.
World Team Now’s stand is to demonstrate solutions that are nature-based, and we are quite enthusiastic about what has grown during this public health pandemic in relation to what we have organic encounters with now; the Ocean (an educational curriculum emerged) and more campaigns on the blue, the green and the biodiversity in between with dolphins; turtles, mangroves, and islands. Emerging is even a greater perspective of the journey’s story about what happened with people around the world when we tried to actually “tell-a-vision” — for a World Team.
We are enthusiastic about our SOS-IS partnership, even though it is at the beginning of coming together. Our goals are beyond the construct of time, but ideally in the now we can act for future generations.
This week has many events to consider organized around the UN General Assembly. A kickoff event on Sunday, September 20th is the New York People Climate Movement’s March for Climate Justice Through Racial Justice. World Team Now fundamentality agrees with the group’s statement and letter, call for justice, but has concerns related to naming-names and prescribing actions related to specific people in political power, and the time frame of these actions with consideration of the collective state of most people.

To shine the light of awareness now, we can only prescribe to be conscious of our choice, and be grateful. We cannot endorse, prescribe action, what to do, or how this moment will “benefit the public” yet. We can share some awareness of what had motivated us in the past, now, and for the future we want. This information is meant to just be shared, again we do not endorse the prescribed approaches or judgments to force law enforcement. Here is what we understand to being organized for the public in New York City locally and virtually:
World Team Now, a public beneficiary nonprofit, had to try to decide what is best for the public at large. Given where we are now geopolitically, this seems to be an impossible choice. That just reminds us that we are all in process of realizing what “I’m possible” means.
We encourage conscious choice. We have been challenged to know what could truly be of public benefit to you all now, and confess we don’t know. In the past, it has worked to act on a local level, and now it will take each of us within ourselves to just shine that special something only you can give.
Globally it does start with where we are now. These above are not legal actions please note that if you choose to go. The march falls on High Holy Days for many people, but it is your choice.
It’s the United Nations 75th Anniversary, and we do support the concept of having Global Goals aka Sustainable Development Goals! But the “by when” and “how we will realize the SDGs” is up to us all. We support the idea of the government’s private sector, corporations, civil society, and each of us coming together for something new.
The question of belief, ideology, and what is justice, comes back to “Just” Us,” each of us.
While our goal is to unite: the divisions can only be bridged through each person’s own truth. While there is a “March” tomorrow we had agreed to support in theory, but it is your choice to engage or not. We can just share the information of what is happening and do not endorse the prescribed approach to go up against the law, or law enforcement. The consideration as New Yorkers to choose to engage or not, given the public safety, and lack of legal permitting, and prescribed measures, has to be one’s own. Your choice is your gift; the “present” of this moment’s possibility.
Where the theory or the ideology lives into the future world we want, how it meets the present with action with respect of the law is the challenge now— both the crises and the opportunity. In the effort to share the information we realize that freedom, equality, and conscious breath matters. May we each trust in the love that breathes through us, and realize we are in the midst of a painful birthing of a new paradigm and way to be with one another and in the world.
