Stand up for earth

There's no Planet B

The Apex of Grace

 Leopards are among the most powerful, intelligent and stunning creatures on Earth. They embody natural beauty.

To watch a Leopard move through the forest is an unforgettable gift.

Nothing I have seen in nature moves with such grace.

The Leopard is absolute beauty.

Seeing Beyond.jpg

"The Leopard is absolute Beauty."

Leopard Study Web.jpg

A leopard is master of hiding and hunting. We only find those that wish to be found. 

Adorned with grace,

poise, balance and power, the moment you see one all time

becomes still. 

A great being like a Leopard  demands respect and admiration. 

"The Moment You See ONE All Time becomes Still"

Balance

Before your gaze finds a Leopard you will first be studied and watched.

They reveal themselves only if they have determined no threat.

To find so much as their shadow passing by is an honour, 

for if they show even this then they chose not to harm you.

Leopard Tree Small.jpg

As I knelt to take this photograph I was so thankful of the beauty in creation.

The Leopard is a perfect living artwork in so many ways;

Divinity formed the Leopard, spiritually and physically. 

 

Immediately after this he turned and jumped, 

launching himself 30 foot up the tree vertically.

Such raw, effortless, incredible motion.

As he turned to look back from the height of the tree,

It felt within me like he was feeling and reading my thoughts;

Just as some humans do, and we began connecting spiritually.

I sent out clear thoughts of love hoping he could feel my admiration.

The Leopard is one of nature's great forms.

It is a blessing to simply be near to such majesty.

When I look at these beings I see creation's perfection. Behind their eyes is a wise, raw and powerful living spirit. 

Leopard's are truly a miracle

Beautiful Leopard of Peace by Daniel.jpg

We are a part of the natural world

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

We Are Nature

We each are a part of the natural world, and the natural world is a part of us all.

All of our cells are a part of nature. Trillions upon trillions of little living miracles. They all come together in perfect harmonious balance to keep us in health within a living natural environment. All of us are a part of the natural miracle which we call life. 

Not only do Human beings need nature,

We are nature. To harm nature

is to harm ourselves.

Fighting Extinction

Golden Leopard.jpg

Just 70

The Amur Leopard is one of the most endangered species on Earth.

 

It is believed that there are just 70 of

these beautiful beings left living wild.

70.

 

Only 70 wild Amur Leopards.

How can this happen unnoticed?

Because the ones who harm earth have great influence over media.

"Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win."

- Rumi

Our work in this world is to take care of each other, the animals, and this planet. The Earth needs the caring of humanity to stand up for this planet.

Many do not realise how much harm is being done, or what we can do to protect nature from harm. If we work together, we can protect Earth. 

In the past few decades, habitat destruction and poaching has caused Leopard populations to dramatically decrease  - by over 80%.

 

Because of human activity many animals are now endangered. 

 

Over half of animal species are currently in decline.

Unless we act soon many species face extinction.

It is time we work together for Earth.

Unsustainable Industry is a Threat to the Planet

Forestry, unsustainable agriculture, Chemical Use and Mining are the most destructive industries of all to nature and animal habitat.

It is destroying the home of 

animals like the Leopard.

 

Because of unsustainable industry there are now so few safe spaces for animals left. We are 

losing hundreds of species 

every single day to extinction. 

There is still time to save these beautiful animals,

but it is now or never.

Either we stand up now for the Earth and all natural lifeforms,

or we fail them.

One or the other.

It's that simple.

Leopard Looks Down.jpg

The destruction on this planet is coming from people who work for destructive companies on destructive projects. Why do people do this? Because companies pay them.

Some companies pay hundreds of thousands of people to destroy nature,

using extremely harmful equipment and machinery.

How are hundreds of thousands of people all around the world using industrial equipment to destroy this planet? Where does the equipment come from and who funds the process?

Most people on Earth want to protect this planet, but somehow its destruction

is being funded instead. Where does the support for ecological destruction come from?

 

It comes from Government subsidies, grants and private financing provided by the banks.

Where do they get all the money they hand out?

It is taken from people by government as debt.

Where does the debt go?

Upon the people.

 

Why?

Because people are unaware; they do not know or understand. 

Many are working to teach, and many are now waking up.

To stand for Earth means joining together as one people.

Together we can put an end to harmful, unsustainable, destructive activity. 

While it is important to take responsibility for each of our own choices,

we also have a duty to call others to account.

If you saw someone destroying the home that you live in,

or the home of your neighbour, you would try to stop them,

wouldn't you. We are all neighbours on Earth.

Our shared home is one planet. 

People are destroying our home.

Those who choose to destroy need to be held to account.

This planet and its people cannot endure the destruction much more.

pexels-markus-spiske-2559749.jpg

 

Here is a list of the banks that support fossil fuels and ecological destruction more than any other. 

 

If millions of people simply choose to take their money out of these banks which use it to fund ecocide then much of the destruction will suddenly stop. This is because the people destroying ecosystems do it for money, not for fun. If they aren't paid they will definitely stop, just like many other industries and forms of work that have stopped this past year. We could then support them to do something useful.

 

So how can we do this? By taking our money out of the banks and encouraging others to do the same. The banks will either notice this trend and rapidly change their ways to keep customers, or they will struggle until they fail. If they do not change and customers keep leaving then they will be unable to make such huge loans to destructive industry, as they lose their capital base.

   

DicxD6YWAAEewL8.jpg

Banks like Chase, Wells Fargo, Citi, Bank of America,  Barclays, Scotiabank, Credit Suisse and HSBC are responsible for over 70% of all fossil fuel investment. If these banks stop funding ecocide, it will collapse as an activity almost entirely worldwide. The planet could heal. Wouldn't that be amazing?

A planet no longer under existential threat. Life. Regeneration. 

Imagine that for a future. A reality.

Truly. We can actually do this.

This means we can actually save the

planet, just by switching banks - en masse.

It will take lots of us, so we need to work together.

Mining smaller.jpg

Switching from the destructive economy to a more creative and sustainable way of being is the simplest way of transforming this world for the better. We always have to evolve individually, but collectively this should happen as well. I would suggest preparing for the alternative also, but always to work for what is best. We need to seek spiritual understanding which leads to all peace and truth between man and his neighbour, who in truth are one. We all need to be doing our best for all life here today, and all life to come. As we do this, we learn and we grow. Our perspective on life become deeper and wider,

and begins to encompass all future generations.

Supporting each other to do good is one of the single greatest ways we can make a difference in the world. We know the old ways are not working, so it is time now we come together for good.

Our Home Needs Protection

When ecosystems become unbalanced they can soon become dramatically unstable, leading to mass die offs and even total ecological collapse. There is nothing more destabilising than the destruction of habitat.

We cannot afford to allow more destruction of ancient forests,

sea life and marine habitats, nor the

use of chemical pesticides and neonicotinoid insecticides.

If we don't stop allowing this and protect habitats soon, there will be no place for populations to recover. If we waste this chance,

there will be a most horrific future for the world.

It is time to stand up.

Choosing Change

 

Here is a list of the banks that support fossil fuels and ecological destruction most. 

 

If millions of people simply choose to take their money out of these banks which use it to fund ecocide then much of the destruction will suddenly stop. This is because the people destroying ecosystems do it for money, not for fun. If they aren't paid they will definitely stop, just like many other industries and forms of work that have stopped this past year. We could then support them to do something useful.

"Every year about 18 million hectares of forest –

an area the size of England and Wales – is cleared."

- World Resources Institute

People should not make huge financial gains from destroying the natural world, but they doSome people use corporations to hide how they make money, because their income comes from activities

that most people would be against. 

Stop This

I wholeheartedly believe that all companies and individuals involved in the past destruction of natural habitat should now be made to pay for its replanting, protection, cultivation and recovery.

 

They should have absolutely no part in this process beyond funding and returning old land held as "property" to the collective of Earth's people.

We cannot allow corporations to own land.

They are fictional entities with no guilt or remorse.

How do we do this?

Stop their activities, as has just happened in the

past year of 2020 for many small businesses worldwide. 

 

Stop destructive businesses.

Permanently.

If businesses stop destructive activity they can be allowed to continue trading; But if they continue harming the environment they should simply be stopped. If a destructive company simply fails due to our action then we have done

planet Earth a great service.

Though people are lead to believe we need these companies to maintain jobs, it is much better for us to simply remove their influence over our minds and from our markets. Taking apart destructive companies would create a huge opportunity for smaller, independent businesses to sustainably replace them. Why are we allowing people to profit from the destruction of our home? There is no sensible reason to let this kind of madness continue.

By closing harmful businesses we enable sustainable ones to replace them. This provides an opportunity for people to become independent doing good,

sustainable, responsible work in the world.

In learning about the source of ingredients in items we can make a real change in our choices and actions. The most obvious of which is in the products we buy.

Many already know that Orangutan live in the rainforests of southeast Asia, but most are unaware that an area of rainforest larger than the united kingdom has already been destroyed in the past few years just to plant palm oil

crops for use in many widely used products.

org_afbf3a931dc163dd_1563608224000.jpg

​The image above shows how large sections of rainforest are being cleared to plant palm oil

with harmful mono-cropped plantations. This destroys natural ecology and food webs..

The image above shows a huge section of precious rainforest cut down to replace with a palm oil plantation. The impact that palm oil production is having upon the forests where Orangutang live is devastating. It is destroying their remaining habitat and wiping many species out. This is all so that major corporations can

use palm oil in their food products. 

 

Destructive activity like this needs to become known to more people so that it is stopped. Though it seems a mammoth task for any individual we have incredible power when we just work together. One of the most amazing recent examples of this is how two young girls started a petition that gained support from several hundred thousand people and forced the massive corporate food brand Kellogg's to change their sourcing of ingredients to sustainable alternatives.

"Many rainforests in Central and South America have been burnt down to make way for cattle farming, which supplies beef to the rest of the world. It is estimated that for each pound of beef produced, 200 square feet of rainforest are destroyed."

- Rainforest Concern

Banks like Chase, Wells Fargo, Citi, Bank of America,  Barclays, Scotiabank, Credit Suisse and HSBC are responsible for over 70% of all fossil fuel investment. If these banks stop funding ecocide, it will collapse as an activity almost entirely worldwide. The planet could heal. Wouldn't that be amazing?

Truly. We can actually do this.

This means we can actually save the

planet, just by switching banks - en masse.

It will take lots of us, so we need to work together.

Shere Khan Small.jpg

Together we can create massive change but first we need to make others aware of the issues and how we can solve them. This can be done most effectively through conscious documentary, writingartwork, high profile advocates and individual people like you and I taking grass roots action, whether it through sustainable farming, supporting mass protests or creating and sharing work like this.

We are the Earth's last and only hope.

Please support & share this work.

 Creating A Sustainable World

Protecting ecology naturally protects true economy,

Because the true human economy thrives and depends upon nature.

An economic model which does not protect and cultivate nature is a false economy;

No true economy can survive without nature.

We can create a new world that puts nature at the centre of all our choices. 

It is time humanity evolved.

 

Let us all begin to create a sustainable, shared, regenerative world.

Decentralised and independent, yet interconnected and cooperative.

A free, open, abundant, sustainable world.

We can Be Sustainable & Responsible

"If you plant trees in a city it has enormous benefits – it cools the temperature, cleans the air, stabilises the soil against flooding and improves psychological

- Jane Goodall

Many amazing people and their projects have been and still are fighting for the future of this planet. 

From Nemonte Nenquimo to Marlice van Vuuren, the Jane Goodall Institute to Ecosia,

there is so much hope still for us to make a better world.

We just have to stand up and work together.

Ecosia have now planted over 100 million trees, all funded with revenue from people using their search engine! Simple actions like switching the search engine you use can have a profound effect when we join together.

  

One of the most immediate differences you can make is to take your money out of bad banks. 

Here is the bank I suggest switching to if you live or do business in Europe. Triodos was founded in 1980 with a mission to 'help create a society that protects and promotes quality of life and human dignity for all' by means of ethical banking. They are leading the charge in positive investment by a long way.

Aspiration bank in the U.S promises your deposits will never go towards funding fossil fuel projects, firearms, or political campaigns.

Hope Credit union makes 77% of their investments into community development projects

During the many actions and protests I have taken part in these incredibly inspiring young people have always astounded me. As we marched through the streets I have also seen thousands of compassionate older people supporting them in spirit.

If the older people act with us it would make such a huge difference.

If we worked together and shared resources this planet would transform.

Cool It BW s.jpg

We learned one very important thing last year; That the world can be changed rapidly.

Let's make the next change come from the people.

We can make a better world for all, including the animals and nature.

If we choose to come together as one, for Earth.

Imagine millions of people having peaceful,

creative, beautiful shared gatherings to learn,

share, connect, have fun and take action.

To protect the environment and

give birth to a better world.

Arrestin' Peace.jpg

Some may question the goal or effectiveness of peaceful protesting and "creative actions", but it has worked before and the alternative is harsh. If enough people come together, massive peaceful protests will definitely work. This is why people like myself are still trying

amid much resistance, to awaken more people while there is still time.

In 2019 there were huge demonstrations across the world to protect planet Earth, the largest of which was an international action across over 60 cities simultaneously.

Though media kept quiet and effectively hid these images from you,

it was impossible to hide everything done completely.

 

We have never seen such an international movement in human history. 

Over 30,000 people gathered in London to stand with our children and demand protection of the planet. Despite thousands of arrests, harsh weather and aggressive use of police force we worked together to endure with love and unity.

Guarding the Truth Bw Smaller.jpg

The demands we made upon government were simple:

 

That Government and media tell the truth about the planet's ecological crisis.

 

That they immediately declare an ecological emergency.

 

That they act now to stop the destruction of animal species.

 

That they reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero within 5 years.

 

That they enact the will of the people through a citizens assembly.

The impact was global, with over a thousand declarations of climate emergency in more than 33 countries. In the same year, the people of Ethiopia planted 350 million trees across 1000 sites in a single day, almost 400,000 acres of endangered animal habitat in Myanmar was declared a protected area, a major project to re-wild the Danube Delta began, Ireland pledged to plant 440 million trees and wild bison were reintroduced to Bulgaria (resulting in the first wild born calf in 800 years).

Continued pressure on government and mass activism creates real change

One Tribe S.jpg

A free world.

Imagine joining the loving people.

Learning about creative regenerative projects,

Joining others to make real changes happen on Earth,

Sharing good, natural, healthy and sustainable food,

Supporting each other through trials & tribulations,

coming together for Earth, love, truth and nature.

Imagine the joy.

Imagine the good it would do.

Not only for this world, but for yourself.

Imagine the kind people you'd meet.

The brave warriors and gentle hearts,

Who care for the animals, nature and Earth.

When we next come together,

I hope you will join us.

You can really make a difference.

Taking action for Earth is important. It doesn't have to be weeks on the streets in front of riot police or underneath helicopters, but at some level and for some people, it will be. I am with those people. 

The moment I captured above was both inspiring and very hard for me. Thousands of police had begun encircling the activists, intending to trap, dishearten and intimidate them. An action known as "kettling".

As the police quickly surrounded us these brave young people had to decide what to do fast.

They acted brilliantly and guided their peers through the closing walls of police.

Adults, mostly male, with full riot gear, horses and helicopters marched toward these children.

Hundreds of them from every side. Children should never have to see this.

Government directed aggression from grown adults toward our children is abhorrent.

Especially when they are literally out here standing up for the planet.

We, the adults, should be standing with our children.

Who's side are you on BW SMALL.jpg

The young people of today are amazing. Despite such a difficult and traumatic world they stand up for the planet and place themselves on the frontline of a struggle to protect Earth from destructive systems.

Systems that they had no part in creating, and that their parents should all be changing.

They are now changing it for us, powerfully, but need much more help.

The least we can do is stand with them in this.

It is our duty to protect children.

There is no planet B s.jpg

There were many watching the protests that clearly wanted to support us and join in, but didn't. I do not know why, but believe the world had somehow constricted their sense of self and freewill.

I hope and pray that you will be free from fear of the world, and serve what is good.

May truth, hope and love guide you always inside. 

Queen Lucy S.jpg

If you feel a connection with this movement, then please stand up and join in somehow. 

Our children are out here on the streets, literally fighting for this planet. How can we not stand with them?

They need our help, our skills, experience, wisdom and resources.

If we give them just these I guarantee they will win.

There are no teenagers in the boardrooms;

Just those who forgot they were children themselves once.

If you are in a position to make a difference then please keep the children in mind.

What we today determines the future of many generations. For the sake of their future we all need to act.

 

May the young people for nature be our guides and true leaders.


May all those who hear this stand up and act with them.

Nothing to See Here S.jpg

The corporate controlled political and economic system is designed to concentrate more and more resources & power into the hands of a few organisations and people. This has been especially true over the last year because of the sweeping actions of government worldwide. To illustrate this point, consider the fact that in 2020 just 10 people increased their personal wealth by over $300 Billion dollarsThat is more than the entire federal budget of Russia, Costa Rica, Nigeria and Nepal combined.

We are talking about the resources of 274 MILLION PEOPLE being less than

the annual increase of just 10. 

 

How is this system in place?

It's time we change this.

pexels-markus-spiske-2990644.jpg

While the controls introduced over the past 12 months have had a crippling impact on most independent & small businesses, massive corporate companies like Amazon and Walmart have benefitted profoundly  (together they made over 50% more profit during 2020). As small businesses have been forced to shut down even more money has been directed toward centralised corporate entities which either were allowed to stay open or received massive benefits - from taxpayers. 


It is time for a great awakening.

A Planet is Shared, not Owned

The resources of the Earth should not belong to anyone. They should be shared responsibly. 

Many humans understand this. We are one tribe. One nation.

There are no borders to this one simple truth.

When we come together in unity,

The greedy world ends.

 

Share the Earth.

pexels-ian-turnell-709552.jpg
Decentralise the Economy

The only way to free people and heal Earth is by decentralising the world systems and economy.

I will say this again, since it is so important. We need to individually become free from a centralised world by a move toward self sustainable living and collectively move away from concentrated wealth and power. It is of the utmost importance for the protection of Earth and humanity.

Expect the corporate controlled media to go against this. See beyond it.

 

The world's destructive, unsustainable economy is what we must transform.

We must decentralise and become regenerative, sustainable,

wholistic and cooperative.

Protecting the Earth, each other and nature, 

this is humanity's greatest work.

Deforestation.jpg

Unsustainable industry is by definition, unsustainable. It depends upon constant consumption of Earth's resources. We can only save Earth by stopping this insane way of being. That means replacing unsustainable business with sustainable alternatives. Unsustainable business

threatens all life on Earth

There's no Planet B.

pexels-pixabay-220201 (1).jpg

The resources of the Earth should not belong to anyone. They should be shared responsibly. 

Many humans understand this, but are divided by those who think they can own a planet.

We can unite, come together and change this world. We are one tribe. One nation.

One people of many cultures. There are no borders to this truth.

The only real law in life is to love.

Beautiful Leopard Roaring Defensively.jp

Protect Our Home

It can be hard to see why such fierce beings need our help,

but to protect them from other humans the caring need to act.

How long have we trusted other humans to lead us?

When will we realise that the leader lives within.

Follow the spirit, the love, of your own soul.

Serve the one truth, that only love knows.

All life is sacred.

All love is one.

Courage

Good life on this Earth takes much

love, strength and courage.

All who love in this world face injustice and condemnation. We need courage to guide us through hardship and trials. 

A Leopard once showed me what real courage is about, by defending itself against

a whole pride of Lions.

With the major size difference and the fact it was outnumbered, I was amazed to watch it fight them off and survive.

Very few animals have the courage, power and skill to successfully fend off

much larger attackers -

especially a pride of powerful Lions.

The Leopard embodies the spirit of courage.

Snarling Leopard Web.jpg
Discernment Web.jpg

Patience

When in need of food, 

Leopards prefer hunting from trees.

Waiting above patiently

they pick their moment and move silently. Leopards are careful,

observant and patient beings.

I have seen a Leopard 

study Lions hunting for hours, just observing and waiting for

them to scatter a herd.

Once the Lions had tired and separated the herd I watched the Leopard move

in on a much easier meal.

To know when to act takes

both wisdom and patience.

There is great power to find in both wisdom and patience.

The ways of a Leopard 

continually prove this.

If we work together with patience the world can and will change.

All human beings have a duty to nature.

We hold in our hands all the children's futures.

If we don't stand up soon they will lose nature forever.

Caring human beings are those who care for and protect each other, the animals, the planet and Nature. Humanity as a whole desperately needs more caring beings to awaken.

We need a collective awakening to action, all around the planet.

The funding from my artwork is going to the project below. If you'd like to support this, it would mean a lot.

RESTORING THE EARTH

We should be living alongside thriving natural animal habitats. To do this we need to learn to live in harmony, not opposition, with the ecological balance of nature.

 

Ecologically sustainable conscious communities formed within and around natural habitat are the most sustainable way of living inside and around woodland areas.

Through regenerative communities we can

restore and extend former habitats to protect endangered species. Living inside of habitat restoration projects means we can more closely monitor and protect the natural ecosystems upon which nature depends while returning the world to a sustainable,

natural and ancient way of living.
