The Promise of Biomimicry


The Biomimicry Institute is releasing a new 20-minute film produced by Tree Media that will introduce biomimicry as a way of living for every day people and as a pathway for design inspired by nature. Co-founder Janine Benyus walks us through the emerging discipline that takes wisdom from the natural world to transform it into human design. Up-and-coming companies share their vision and inspiration, and viewers are poised to ask how nature would solve a problem. Tune in on January 23 at 12p PT / 3p ET and learn from Earth’s greatest teacher: nature.

Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective


A collaborative documentary about tribal land management practices and their resilience in a changing climate.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inhabitfilms/inhabitants-an-indigenous-perspective

The film focuses on five stories: the return of prescribed fire practices by the Karuk Tribe in California; the restoration of buffalo on the Blackfeet reservation in Montana; sustained traditions of H...

The case for … making low-tech ‘dumb’ cities instead of ‘smart’ ones
https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2020/jan/15/the-case-for-making-low-tech-dumb-cities-instead-of-smart-ones
It is eminently possible to weave ancient knowledge of how to live symbiotically with nature into how we shape the cities of the future, before this wisdom is lost forever. We can rewild our urban landscapes, and apply low-tech ecological solutions to drainage, wastewater processing, flood survival, local agriculture and pollution that have worked for indigenous peoples for thousands of years, with no need for electronic sensors, computer servers or extra IT support.

Mother Nature’s Child

Growing Outdoors in the Media Age


Mother Nature’s Child marks a moment in time when a living generation can still recall childhoods of free outdoor play. This will not be true for most children growing up today. Contemporary culture has undergone drastic change in the last three decades, forcing children indoors where they increasingly exhibit symptoms of “nature deficit”: obesity, depression, and a range of learning disorders. Mother Nature’s Child explores the various ways that time in nature promotes children’s well-being, contributes to the future of the planet, and nourishes the human spirit. The film investigates nature’s role in all aspects of child development – #... Show more...

"Do not unjustly eat fish the water has given up,
And do not desire as food the flesh of slaughtered animals,
Or the white milk of mothers who intended its pure draught
for their young, not noble ladies.
And do not grieve the unsuspecting birds by taking eggs;
for injustice is the worst of crimes.
And spare the honey which the bees get industriously
from the flowers of fragrant plants;
For they did not store it that it might belong to others,
Nor did they gather it for bounty and gifts.
I washed my hands of all this; and wish that I
Perceived my way before my hair went gray!"

"put into perspective"

is that another example of #naiverealism ? does it show a presumption that the perspective being put in is the perspective, and that there's not any such thing as other perspectives to consider?

#Agnihotra is from #ancient #wisdom, given in these times as an antidote to pollution.

People from all over the world practice Agnihotra and Homa Therapy with tremendous positive results. The immediate experience is a greater peace within oneself and one’s family and environment. Agnihotra is from the science of Ayurveda, reinvigorating and healing nature by purifying the atmosphere. It is a simple 10-minute process that involves a small fire burnt in a seamless inverted copper pyramid of specific dimensions at the precise moment of sunrise and sunset. Let’s help heal the planet, perform Agnihotra for the benefit of all

Visitor:

A woman along with Paul had no parking space, so there was a problem.
She said ‘I include it’ and then, there was space available for parking.

Nisargadatta Maharaj:

The place for parking is because of the determination ‘I am everything’.
The common man’s devotion is that of wanting A.B.C and so forth, it’s like bargaining, they pay no attention to the eternal.

The #Hatha Yogis in the process of the Hatha #Yoga acquire Siddhis (powers), so they are an attraction for the masses
but they stagnate there and there is no eternal realization.

Whatever your mind revels in, therein you fall in a pit.

Creation said:
“I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it.
It is the realization that they create their own reality.”
The eagle said,
“Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”
The Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it.”
The salmon said,
“I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.”
The Creator said, “No. They will go there, too.”
The buffalo said, “I will bury it on the Great Plains.”
The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.”
Grandmother who lives in the breast of Mother Earth,
and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said
“Put it inside of them.”
And the Creator said, “It is done.”
