“We are members of a species that is a global society of Human Beings, yet we separate ourselves according to often ancient cartographical designations. ~ ~ We seem to kill ourselves in droves because of these imaginary lines, despite our daily understandings eye-to-eye & face-to-face. ~ ~ We must remove ourselves from these & other imposed paradigms & become in practice the single species that We are. ~ ~ We do this by beginning such a shift internally, allowing for a certain positivity & optimism to permeate our beings until it then affects our daily Lives, our households, our villages, neighborhoods & towns, our cities, our states, our countries, & our continents. ~”
About the Author
Born & raised a 19th generation Virginia gentleman in Thomas Jefferson’s historic Charlottesville, Joshua David McLerran has become something of a renaissance man. ~ ~ He has starred in motion pictures, traveled to all but 4 of the united states, & sailed a 27-foot sloop alone off the coast of Maine for 6 days, navigating solely by chart & compass. ~ ~ Joshua lived on the islands of Negros & Panay in the Philippines for over 2 years & is fluent in 6 of the country’s native dialects. ~ ~ By American standards, Joshua was born & raised in something close to poverty, however, it was not until his time in the Philippines that he learned the world’s far grosser definitions of the term. ~ ~ There, he saw men working in sugarcane fields for a dollar a day, eating a single plate of rice to sustain themselves, just once a day. ~ ~ From that time on, Joshua has been aware of the stark imbalances in this world & is determined to do everything he can to see it remedied. ~ ~ Joshua affiliates himself with no denomination or class beyond that of Human Being & encourages the People of the world to do the same.
