Putting behind a year of a myriad of collective crises, we are grateful World Team Now has been able to continue to have the opportunity to research and explore natural based systems solutions, here on this island off the east coast of the USA.  We are especially eager to support renewed system solutions to islands, especially those in recovery from the category 5 cyclone, Yasa, in the Pacific Island Region, our friends in Fiji, who were at the eye of the cyclone.

Our hearts go out to all people in communities who we love that are now challenged.  With a myriad of collective crises, we can look past with a clear vision of our world in 2020.  Let’s move into the future we want to see, and the SDGs calls the campaign “A Race We Must Win”!  To winning and coming together in action as ONE, for us all then for future generations we will have WON.

Friday 13th Rocket Launch 2020

It gave hope to witness rocket launches from NASA’s nearby at Cape Canaveral which inspired contemplating private space travel and bringing satellites to islands and remote areas without connection, reaching out for communication to those needing interconnectivity.

What a gift to just breathe and be with the ocean surviving one of the most challenging times for us all. Now we are getting ready to share more formally through the writing of the World Team odyssey.

Rocket Launches Bookend Weekend

Sunday, November 15th Beachfront, Ponce Inlet, Florida, USA by Suzanne Maxx ©

Tonight I witnessed Rocket Launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center of SpaceX Crew Dragon 1 mission flying astronauts; Commander Michael Hopkins, Pilot Victor Glover, and Mission Specialist Shannon Walker, all of NASA, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Mission Specialist Soichi Noguchi. team-up for science and exploration.   This USA/Japan peaceful “together” theme is significant for us around the World Team project personally as Japan is where the vision for the World Team project began.  Collectively from those of us from the USA bearing the historic karma and wanting to stand for peace.  This summer we can expect to see more teamwork, and not only with the Summer Olympics in Japan.

This historic private astronaut’s journey launches human space exploration at a moment when humanity can use more inspiration and unity with one another, past all that divides.  To see the rocket blast off in the night sky, lit up our hearts with the possibility of the future.

They have reached orbit en route to the International Space Station for a six-month science mission.

The Crew Dragon is scheduled to dock at the space station around 11 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16. Launch, prelaunch activities, and docking will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Launch ON! Watch Here

We LOVE the Engines’ names; #Kestrel #Merlin and consider the legacy in a name.  Elon Musk is good at the archetypical use of energetics in more than merely the name but it has raised awareness even with what he has done with “Tesla”.

The huge contrast in missions between Friday, Nov. 13th, 2020 Atlas V Rocket NROL-1010 Spy Satellite contrasting approach between government confidential and multistakeholder partnership approach for public benefit, collaboration, or competition-hedging bets?

These “Launches” are opening up  #Space for Humanity in this multistakeholder partnership with SpaceX, JAXA and NASA lead in this new frontier of “Resilience,” which is also the name of the rocket.  This is not just about humanity with machines, private operational space navigation, but also the continuation of research towards interstellar habitation, and a better understanding of life, on earth, and other planets, through the gifts of scientific exploration.

We are also so excited about the #StarLinkSatellites’ for last-mile of least developed connectivity, transparency, and more transformational media possibilities Launch ON!

Oceans’ Biodiversity: Dolphins to Sea Turtles

By Suzanne Maxx ©

Living on a developed barrier island, Ponce Inlet Florida, USA, and floating in the ocean daily has built an even more intimate relationship with nature.  What a contrast from the island of Manhattan, New York City to this island, and thinking back on the years being on the Small Island States, such as  Fiji and Samoa.  The opportunity to learn from biodiversity and interact with nature is immeasurable and teaches so much about how each species is organically wired to survive.

When I moved into a home on the beach during recovery to regain my health, floating with the dolphins led me to an ocean curriculum.  Then two mama sea turtles chose to make their nests on the shore of the beach where I live. We have learned so much about being able to witness the life cycles of sea turtles during this time and these precious endangered species we are called to team-up with others here to help protect.

The mother lays her eggs onshore and goes back to the sea.  Months later,  the sea turtle hatchlings’ journey to the ocean for the first time by themselves. Watch this little leader:

and rehabilitation from an injured sea turtle:

..and watching the monitoring of their nests by the local Volusia County Sea Turtle Patrol:

The learning that is unfolding is immeasurable and inspires the sharing of the love for biodiversity with new experiences in the wild with birds, fish, crabs, whales, dolphins, and sea turtles grows from being in the ocean.

Being immersed in the ocean and island, life breath by breath strengthens that interconnection to all species.  But the key is how to not merely survive, but to thrive, with interdependency on one another beyond siloed life systems, using both science, consciousness, and life’s ultimate mystery to discover how to better protect nature. Urgent action on both local and global levels to approach this change is needed, but it begins with becoming aware of the challenges and opportunities.

When we are immersed in nature, each one of us can come into a more balanced relationship, not just to the ocean, flora, and fauna, but one another. This island has a team that supports marine life, with wild species education, rehabilitation, all in the effort to support, conserve and preserve sea turtles, and more!  We have appreciated witnessing the Turtle Patrol in action.


Actions on Biodiversity World Team Now is taking include:

From a global view, biodiversity worldwide is rapidly decreasing. Urgent action is needed as witnessed in the United Nations’ just published 5th edition its Global Diversity Outlook.

There was to be a UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon Portugal in 2020 but that is moved to 2021, date TBD.

Leading to COP26 in Glasgow Scottland 1-12 November 2021.

Observing nature, and organically discovering natural-based solutions from the ocean, is leading to new pathways forward for our common future.

Every Breath We Take


Sunrise with the “Blue and Green” Photo by Suzanne Maxx

By Suzanne Maxx ©

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.

Breathing into a New Paradigm
