Regular readers will probably
have deciphered by now NOVA's
main focus for this year of great
transitions. It's twofold really: a
recognition of the great changes underway
in every area of our lives -- in climate,
technology, health challenges, financial
security, even the world's power balance --
and, to help us all cope with these rapid fire
changes, an encouragement to grow into
our own inner power.
We hear a lot about becoming conscious
and really there's no other way. It's only
through our own greater awareness, both
of the world outside and our own individual
capacities (and weaknesses) that we can
gain a sure footing for our life's journey.
It's hugely empowering to realise so many
other people feel the same way and together
we are building a strong, resilient,
compassionate and inclusive community.
Think how far we've come already.
Once upon a time, to be labelled "alternative"
or "new age" was to be dismissed as a
dreadlocked, spaced out, mung bean eating
hippie. Remember all that? Now to be
"holistic" or "organic" or "vegetarian"
or "Buddhist" is to have moved in from
the lunatic fringe of society to a position
of grudging acceptance, even, almost,
respectability. After all, organic farming is
now one of the top two growth industries
in Australia and Farmers' Markets are
booming! As a society, we've found out what
it means to be green -- or at least a little bit
greener -- and it can only be to our good.
and that's the thrust of this month's
While we go shopping at the weekend
at a local market for our organic greens and
free range eggs carried in our green enviro
bags, chances are we're driving there in our
4WD. Sorry SUV. It was staggering recently
to find Suburban Utility Vehicles are now
blitzing any other sort of private vehicle
sales in Australia and in March rose 44%. Of
course, they come in all sizes and I direct
my ire at the giant cruisers we see in our
more affluent suburbs. It's a smart bit of
marketing isn't it -- what can possibly be
deemed "suburban" about such a space
invading, intimidating, fuel guzzling monster
with rarely a trace of gravel dust on its
tractor tyres? What's conscious about that
Another unpalatable reality, and one we
must become more aware of in this country,
is the threat of Big Pharma, and its unholy
consort Big Food, in restricting our right to
nature's pharmacy, herbs. It's sobering but
very enlightening to read Dr Kitty Campion's
expose ("Waging War on Herbs" ) on the
deliberate policy of stamping out centuries
of herbal wisdom in Europe and the UK,
prompting her relocation to Australia after
30 years of practice. The UK's loss is our
country's gain and let's acknowledge the gift
of experience she brings us.
At the same time, we're delighted to be
able to acknowledge the profound wisdom
of our own Aboriginal people in guiding
us towards a deeper connection with the
land. Our ancient continent is a country
of extremes and fragile balances -- we need
this guidance to harness our precious
resources of water and fertile soils for a
Footprints come in all shapes and sizes.
I hope you find some to match your own
personal journey this month.
