Let's Build the Spaceship Peace
We all were born on this spaceship called planet Earth, and this spaceship doesn't know any borders. To understand this, step back and try to watch this spaceship from the outside. You will see that rivers don't know any borders as well as the birds flying in the air. The sun is shining every day on the whole earth, not only on a special country, and all inhabitants of this spaceship share similar experiences, feelings and emotions. We all breathe the same air, and the flow of energy is universal, ignoring all borders. But there are other things which don't know any borders: the pollution of the environment, climate change/global warming with all its consequences, the spread of diseases and epidemics, famines, homelessness, natural disasters like hurricanes or earthquakes and other evil things still existing on our spaceship. People displaced and dispossessed by war or environmental disasters don't know any borders.
In a physical sense borders simply do not exist, only in the imagination of often corrupt politicians or other so-called leaders who want to stay in power, and in the imagination of those human beings who follow these "leaders" without questioning their actions (or non actions). We live in an age of competition, and borders are symbols of power, to keep the "others" out, people with other religions or cultural backgrounds, people who speak other languages, people with different behaviour..., and they are symbols of fear as a weapon to control the "others". As long as these borders exist in our imagination, creativity and the power to act are limited, and the danger of conflicts is considerably higher. Such borders lead to intolerance, suppression, hatred, slavery, exploitation and, in the worst case, to the destructive power of war. Authority creates chaos. It is our duty to overcome these destructive powers to guarantee our survival on this spaceship Earth. We must realize that only one human race exists on our planet, that we are all one people. We don't belong to any country, we are free citizens of this spaceship Earth.
"In the very end, civilizations perish because they listen to their politicians and not to their poets." Jonas Mekas
To survive on our spaceship we must activate constructive powers. That is only possible when we change our attitudes and replace competition with cooperation, when we overcome our differences and respect each other, and first of all, of course, our Mother Earth and all these wonderful things this mother has created in billions of years. We have dreams and visions. The forgotten wisdom of our ancestors must be only reactivated. We have an advanced information technology at our disposal to share our ideas and experiences. These facts, combined with education and tolerance, give us the power to improve our knowledge and evolve our consciousness, the possibility to look to a better future without any borders and destruction, to ensure the survival of the human race and the whole planet in all its diversity. We are one global family. Don't be afraid to be confronted with different cultures, views and opinions. Let's act to build the Spaceship Peace now! Let's share this dream and let it become reality before it might be too late, otherwise we could end up in a high-tech stone age. We can't wait any longer for ignorant politicians and all the other "leaders" who always only react. The time for change has come, we need order without authority.
"A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together is reality." John Lennon
