We have reached a level of success in our orca protection 2019 campaignand are actually in a position to help the Southern Resident orca whales. Much has changed because the situation is happening “now,” and change is continually expected. I have learned to accept change and keep moving on. We, on the Wii Seeks are keeping our eyes on the prize. The orcas, remember them?
Things are happening, real and good things. Some of the bad reactions come from fear, often motivated by: “Change is impossible.”To us, however, those tough solutions just take a bit longer… BUT we CAN overcome.
Everyone wants to save these beautiful creatures, but no matter what they profess, few will really put them first. Being a human, I know this is a human trait. But, first of all, we can make real change happen for the orca whales by obeying the laws that exist. This would be a good start. What a concept! After that we can move on with “new perceptions” and beliefs in the power of working together. It is time for us to solve this painful puzzle of pending SRKW extinction—one piece at a time.
The myth easiest for us to believe is: It is someone else’s fault. This might be true in some cases, but it would be much more useful to the orca Southern Resident orcas if “we” collectively tried to help solve the problem rather than believe this myth about “someone else”, and bitch.
Another myth is: Nothing will change. This is easy enough to believe; but there is something to be said about nourishing one’s soul and fighting the good fight. Then, as we pass on, we can look our grandchildren straight in the eye and revert to myth # 1: “Don’t blame me, I did all I could.” At least we can pass over to wherever our beliefs allow, with a smile on our spirit face. If you’re a Hindu, maybe get a higher step on that ladder to re-incarnation. For me, I’ll go back to the earth from whom I came, hoping that I have played a small part in healing some of the destruction my generation has administered.
So, now might I suggest that it is a good time to give co-operation a try? How can it hurt? Maybe we’ll help bust the “nothing will change” myth and our neighbor orcas might survive. We can then “blame” ourselves and our real love for their future.
The fourth and biggest myth is the easiest to slough off. What can I do?Well, let me tell you that you can do a lot. Hell, you can start a movement if you believe in the mission, and don’t believe the above myths.
Please go to www.gaianetwork.netand donate your experience, ideas, technical expertise, and any money you can afford to allow us to cover our expenses and get these whales protected. We are actually here in their home territory, on site. What a concept!
