March 28th update
I wrote this in response to a question by Jean-Michel Hinse, “what can we do”?
I wanted to share this here. 🌲🌎🙏
Through all this, stay in optimism and out of fear.... know that this will pass.
There are a number of directions and potential paths forward that we need to prepare for.
The first is that we are prepared and we mobilize within the window of the industry stated 2 week delay.
The second is that the industry will need a longer delay so we can see be on the downside of the C19 curve.
The third is that this outbreak worsens and we are morally and ethically and legally required to stay home.
In all cases, take care of yourself by not getting sick. Do isolate so that you are in the best state possible, so that you are prepared to mobilize when the opportunity safely presents. Take care of everyone around you by taking care of your own isolation and health. Isolate with people you love and that love you.
Use this time to imagine what you want to manifest from an amazing season. Do what the C19 is forcing us to do.... Slow down and reflect on what is important. When we all do this and it is time to come back together, then our perspectives on what is important next can be shared with others. This time of isolation is forcing us to reflect on our deepest principles.
When we are healthy, and when we eventually do come back together, in the community of tree planting, we then can share these ideas and images and values for what is important and next in our time ..... and we also plant trees.
In short, isolate from the outside world, spend more time in the inside world, take care of yourself, and those around you, and get ready. Through all this, stay in optimism and out of fear. This will pass. 🌲🌎🙏
