An appeal to the youth and to all others
I am 76 years old and still as politically active today as in the Student Movement of 1968; but with experiences that I have to share, because in the meantime I have come to understand why so far almost all movements have failed.
Today, many thousands of young people take to the streets for climate protection and system change. Thanks for that! I can only hope that this movement will gain enough inner strength and endurance to actually lead to a system change. That would really be a historic turning point, because for centuries people have been fighting against exploitation, oppression and violence; and for centuries they have lost their struggle against the superiority of the existing system. And yet their struggle can no longer be stopped, because everywhere there are people – especially young people – who cannot bear the barbarity of the existing society any longer. They fight with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in Dakota (USA), they fight in the Hambach Forest in Germany, they fight in the peace community of San José de Apartadó in Colombia, they fight for the restoration of Riace (Italy), they fight on the rescue ships for the refugees in the Mediterranean, they fight … on all continents.
And again and again many lose their strength after some time. Disappointed and discouraged, they withdraw, become ill or drug addicted or criminal. I myself have witnessed and led this kind of struggle in the Marxist left in Germany (1968) for four years – until I realized that we needed another solution. The old idea of revolution is over. Violence has never turned anything on Earth to the better. The whole world needs new information. How do we generate this new information, and how do we bring it into the world? That has been the question and the task since then.
We thank you for your collective call for a future worth living. May your worldwide rebellion find its inner goal, a goal for all of humanity. The few who today have the courage to step out of this collective hypnosis need solidarity support. Use your free space on behalf of all those who right now do not have this free space and this power and who therefore urgently need your help. Use your anger not only against the system and its henchmen, but use it to discard the old from yourself. We are not the product of a society, a tradition, a family; we are human beings. Free yourselves from the legacy of a terrible historical past.
Let us come together to protect life which is destroyed in the name of corporations and governments almost everywhere today. There is a socialism that is beyond all parties and ideologies: it is the socialism of trust, holding together and mutual support. Today, what carry the power of survival are thoughts of truth and thoughts of a love which dares to take a stand. These thoughts lead to the knowledge that you and all of us need for healing. It is so simple, elementary and true – and if we succeed, a field of trust will emerge that will be effective in crisis areas.
In the following I would like to say things that could transform the great rebellion into a concrete force that can no longer be captured by the existing system.
The current demonstrations for a future worth living, for climate change and the protection of nature, for human rights and animal rights are signs of a global awakening which takes place on all continents. But they need a common goal, otherwise they will lose the confrontation with the existing system. The goals of a better future can only be achieved if there is a clear vision of what the necessary system change will look like.
System change! What does that mean in our times, where many millions of dollars are spent annually to purposefully spread wrong information on world climate? … at a time where it is not allowed to rescue refugees who are drowning in the Mediterranean… at a time where prosperity, on the one hand, is generated by unspeakable raids and cruelty on the other? Not to mention the fate of children in war zones, the fate of animals in slaughterhouses, animal laboratories or fur farms…
In order to overcome the capitalist system, we need a positive vision for a post-capitalist order of life. We need a common vision for us, our children, for all those who have to flee their home lands, a vision for victims and perpetrators, a vision for love, and for our relationship to animals, to nature and to the whole cosmic world from which we all come. This vision is not an invention of human beings; it exists already as a latent reality in the entire blueprint of life.
The blueprint of life: The living systems of the Earth and the Universe follow an inner matrix with a focus on healing and unity and on higher development through cooperation and togetherness. Every disease is curable, every conflict solvable, if the human frequency field connects with the frequency of this cosmic field. In this field the ideas of exploitation, hostility and war do not exist. Where people meet in this new order of life, enemies are transformed into friends. And that is exactly what needs to be done to build this order of life on earth, an order of trust, love, cooperation and solidarity. This dream becomes reality as soon as the first groups on earth have begun to recognize and realize it. We are talking here about the “Plan of the global Healing Biotopes.” (More information in my book “Terra Nova. Global Revolution and Healing of Love.)
The violated earth can turn into a paradise within a short time if we cooperate with nature and follow its laws of life. Water, energy and food are available to all people at no cost if we follow the logic of nature and not the laws of profit. But the problem we face today is more complicated, because man and nature form an energetic unity in the biosphere. In other words, the environmental crisis of destroyed ecosystems and the global crisis of destroyed human relationships and communities are two aspects of the same overall problem.
On the human level we need new perspectives on how to live together without fear and violence and without the traumatic remains of our historical origins, especially in the more intimate zones of sexuality, love and partnership, because the deepest (and most concealed) crisis area of our time is the relationship between people. There can be no peace in the world as long as there is (latent) war in love. Fifty years ago we achieved some goals in the time of the student revolution. But then the struggle began inside the groups, the struggle for the right ideology, for recognition, power and sex! Nobody was yet prepared for this. Nobody knew how much the external violence of the system and the inner struggle of the people came from the same source. If we want to succeed today, we must build places where truth and interpersonal solidarity can be learned.
The vision of a healed world cannot, of course, be achieved by coercion or force, and also not with conventional human and technical means of communication alone, as the counterforces are still too strong. But separate from the mechanistic logic of the existing way of thinking in the fields of politics and ecology, there is a completely different logic: it opens up to us when we direct our consciousness to the functions of living systems. Resonance instead of fierce power is one of the secrets of its success. This means that: Information in accordance with the inner matrix of life and its universal ethics spreads by itself to wherever there are people and groups willing to receive it. For this amazing phenomenon we use the term “morphogenetic field building” from the English biologist Rupert Sheldrake. When in the first communities the vision of a new culture is really created and lived, the world will enter into a “stimulated state”, for what is happening in these first places is in resonance with the higher order of life. All humans are genetically connected to this information. The gene code for a new civilization is created.
The information for a future worth living does not contain the old revolutionary slogans, but aims towards an absolute partisanship for life, an inner connection with the higher laws of the spiritual world and the togetherness of all beings in the great family of life. We live in a time of great epochal change, the change from patriarchy to a culture of partnership, from the hologram of violence to the hologram of trust. The more people worldwide connect with this global process, the faster the cruel time of war can end. It could happen very quickly.
In the name of love for all creation.
