Stand up for earth

There is no Planet B

Daniel-K-Swan-Drawing-Street-Chalk-Art-I

A few years ago, I was drawing baby leopards on the streets of London, hoping to inspire passers by to look beyond the world and think about nature.

The world of mankind is harming the Earth,

We need to protect nature,

to evolve as people,

and become free.

The world outside is very negative and unjust.

It is the outward projection of many lower inner realities.

 

Many people live in a much more loving inner world.

These people are not interested in controlling the world.

 I know we can create a better shared reality together,

If we just choose to act now and stand up for the Earth.

If you hear what I'm saying, please read this message.

After speaking with thousands of people over several years

creating street art,

I learned that there are

many other people

who think like this.

Like those people, I want Nature to more than just survive. I want nature and animals, like the Leopard, to thrive!

One Tribe

Daniel Swan Leopard Painting Street Traf

For most of human history human beings have lived tribally.

We worked together in harmony with the nature and people around us for many thousands upon thousands of years. There was no system or control, nor any private ownership or debt. There was no industry of war, no refugee crisis, no famine in Yemen, no homelessness or mass media.

People lived freely, in many tribes, all across the Earth.  

Only relatively recently did centralised systems of power control people.

It's time to wake up and return to nature.

We can come together as single tribe again,

One great human tribe. Beyond all systems and centralisation.

One Tribe to regenerate nature and let humans, animals & ecosystems thrive.

Save Our Planet Smaller NEw.jpg

You may have seen children stand up in the streets to protest,

millions worldwide together, but are you aware of what they're standing for? 

The image below is just one example of what they are protesting to end.

To save this planet from ecological destruction, where many thousands of lifeforms are wiped out. Corporations threaten all life on Earth today;

Just to make more money 

Mining smaller.jpg

This is what our children are against. This is stealing and killing life across Earth.

These brave children have been trying to save a whole planet. 

Young people, our children; What are we going to do?

We cannot let this damage go on much longer.

I am going to stand with them. 

I hope you will too.

Ancient Native Elders

Street Artist Native American Painting M

Did you known Native American people lived in harmony with nature? Their tribes were sustainable and naturally balanced with local ecology.

They lived peacefully across the Americas for many thousands

of years, hardly leaving a trace of their

presence since it was all so

beautifully natural. 

Spoke of One Loving Tribe

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

It is time to learn how to live in tribal harmony with nature again.

Due to the blind who divide us, Many humans have forgotten that we are all ultimately one tribe.

 

All those who love belong to an eternal tribe. It is time for that one loving tribe to awaken and act. 

Coming Together

Street Art Tribal Portrait by Daniel K S

With Shared Perception

We all have a different way of seeing things. We all have a different experience of being. What we share in common is pure being, love and awareness. The inner light of consciousness, beyond all conceptual ideas of the mind.

All sensations of space and time, experiential dimensions,

exist within our spiritual self.

We are connected.

 

We are one.

A Creative Living Universe

 

However you believe the universe came into being, it is all one. Within what physicists call the singularity, everything that is, ever was or will be, all of space and all of time, is ultimately one. Though many dimensions of perception seem to divide us, we are still one.

 

When you realise this, it changes everything.

The Universal Truth of Love

Huge-3D-Chalk-and-Pastel-Art-Mural-Portr

The universal truth of love, oneness and unity is a foundational principle

by which I try to live my life. This leads me to care for nature and humanity.

Many souls are discovering the life giving spirit, and a growing awareness is calling us all into harmony. This is the spirit of all truth, love, peace and beauty.

Protect Mother Nature

Enlightenment Street Art by Daniel Swan

The world is hurting mother nature so a few can take money from many.

Many species are now highly endangered, like Amur Leopard's for example;

of which there are less than a hundred remaining.

We can change this reality, but it requires a global awakening.

I want to inspire and accelerate positive evolution on Earth,

this is why I create and draw all over the streets.

Quite a few beautiful people notice this,

They care for nature & its beauty.

They know we can save Earth,

If we all join together,

We can make a huge difference.

We can save many endangered species,

like Amur Leopard's.

The Leopard is absolute Beauty.

 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

We only find those that wish to be found

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

Amur Leopard Love BW Small.jpg

Perfect Balance

Before you ever find a Leopard you will be studied and watched.

A Leopard sees you before you ever notice it.

 They reveal themselves only by choice.

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

for if they have shown even this they chose not to cause any harm to you.

Leopard Tree Small.jpg

I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power.

As I knelt to take this photograph I was in awe of the

beauty before me. The Leopard is a perfect living artwork in so many ways; I see divinity in their form, spirit and movement.

 

Immediately after I took the shot he turned

and launched himself 30 foot up into a tree.

I was astounded to see how powerful this Leopard was.

Such raw, effortless, incredible motion. A true honour to witness.

 

I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power.


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

It felt like he was actually reading my thoughts;

Seeing, feeling and connecting spiritually.

An Honour to Witness

The Leopard is one of

nature's great forms.

 

It is a blessing to simply be near to one.

When I look at these beings I see creation's perfection.

I am sure they can feel my complete admiration.

 

Behind their beautiful eyes

is a raw living spirit. 

 

The leopard is truly a miracle.

Almost Completely Gone

Despite all of their perfect natural beauty the Leopard is endangered.

Some species, like Amur Leopard's, are now almost completely gone.

Fight Against Manmade Extinction

There are people fighting valiantly to protect these species, like Shatrunjay Pratap Singh, who dedicated his life to protecting Indian Wildlife and even stopped government sanctioned mining from destroying one of the

last thriving Leopard habitats on Earth.

Another amazing human being, Jadav Payeng, started planting trees along the river when he was just 16 years old. By continually planting over 35 years they have now grown into a 1360 acre forrest teeming with wildlife;

including Elephants, Deer and Tigers

Some beautiful souls do incredible things against great odds for the preservation of Mother Nature, but they are heavily outnumbered by corporate money and its servants. We need so many more to stand up for Earth now and join the fight against destruction. By raising awareness and getting involved ourselves, we can all come together to save life on this planet today and for future generations.

"Over half of all animal species are now in decline."

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 endangered. 

 

Over half of animal species are now in decline.

Many species on Earth are

now facing extinction.

Save Nature for Future Generations

When those who care for these animals work together as one they can have an enormous impact, such as increasing tiger populations due to conservation efforts in India, or the beginning of the first ever snow leopard conservation project in the country last year. These excellent projects are still very limited and in need of increased

public support to ensure continued expansion.

All the big cats of India are under threat due to fragmented forests and rapidly disappearing habitat chopped down in the name of unsustainable development.

We need to start protecting not only the remaining natural animal habitat but also working to replant and repopulate it - work which will take global support. 

 

Only through major increased awareness can we truly save endangered species.

We are fighting to protect nature from destructive & unsustainable human economic processes.

 

This is all caused by corporate enabled actions - A hidden manmade extinction

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

- Rumi

One of the greatest recent success stories for conservation was the creation of the major 650,000 acre "Land of the Leopard" National Park in Russia, which covers

60% of all the highly endangered Amur Leopards' natural habitat.

Golden Leopard.jpg

Only 70 Left

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 those who harm earth have great influence over mass media.

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

like the Leopard.

 

Because of unsustainable industry there are now so few safe spaces for animals left that we are completely losing hundreds of species 

every day. 

Because of massive ignorance, corporate greed and irresponsible

 humans, 67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.

Protecting Keystone Species

Certain species in an ecosystem have a tremendous impact upon the others in a local, or even global, ecology.

These species are known as "keystone" species.

The loss of habitat or keystone species can cause

sudden collapse of entire ecosystems

The loss of trees or keystone species can cause sudden collapse of entire ecosystems. Particularly when these species, like Leopard's, keep human beings off the land. For nature to recover

we must protect keystone species and their habitat.

For nature to recover we must protect keystone species

Unsustainable Industry Destroys this Planet

"Every year about 18 million hectares of forest –

an area the size of England and Wales –

is cleared."

67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.

We still have time to save these beautiful animals, but it is now or never.

We either stand up for Earth, nature and all lifeforms; or we fail them.

 

It is that simple.


Standing for and protecting Earth

means standing up to and replacing unsustainable agriculture

and industry. 

We still have time to save these beautiful animals, 

but it is now or never

We do not have to be a part of this destruction.

We can choose instead to create and support alternatives to it.

We can simply choose to save nature, protect Earth and become sustainable.

Enough of destruction. We can choose to regenerate.

 

Let us make this choice now.

Taking the Bridge S.jpg

We either stand up for our future,

nature and all life on Earth; or choose to do nothing.

The moment captured above is one of my most treasured of memories.

To go before these young warriors onto the centre of Lambeth bridge was one of many peaceful actions that have raised awareness through civil disobedience.

Today almost everyone has heard the term "climate emergency". Some are even aware now we're facing ecological collapse and are now trying to stop it.

 

This is all thanks to visible protests and grass roots activism. 

If it were not for such actions the world would be much more blind.

I am asking all who care now to join together beyond activism.

We need to use our energy to start healing the Earth.

Ecologically Regenerative Food Forests.

There are many incredible ways we can accelerate nature's healing, but I see the most effective as being through ecologically regenerative food forests. This means the creation of food producing, natural ecosystems which provide resources for communities as well as habitat for birds, insects and many animals. 

 

By creating these regenerative food forests and growing our own food, sharing resources as a community and reducing consumption of products that harm Earth,

we would collectively create a much better world. We can create

resilient and sustainable communities both locally and

globally, that inspire and inform other people

on how to protect our children's futures;

Free food, free energy, free shelter.

Free people. 

One Tribe.

One Planet.

It's within our future if we stand up to create this.

If we don't stand up soon I think our chance will run out.

There is a lot going on which most people are not aware off.

The planet is in trouble, but there is still time to change; 

If caring people come together, we can create something amazing.

Grow food and safe, natural, regenerative communities.

One Tribe S.jpg

Come Out and Be Separate

By coming out of and being separate from broken systems,

forming communities, sharing talents, skills and resources, we can act now

together securely and sustainably to protect nature & create a much better world.​​

Create a Much Better World Together

Forming sustainable, responsible, compassionate communities living in harmony with nature is the simplest and most enjoyable way to protect our children's futures and all life on Earth. For most of human history this is how the great human tribes lived. It is only relatively

recently that so many allowed a system to separate us from nature.

Because of inaction and gross negligence much damage has now been done.

This damage will harm us all but even more so the poor.

The future looks difficult for many reasons,

but we can change it for good.

We can regenerate thriving natural ecosystems worldwide

Planting Ecological Food Forests

By creating ecologically balanced natural food forests, we can both regenerate habitat, capture carbon,  prevent soil erosion, protect ecology and produce nutritious food - supporting and supported by a natural sustainable thriving human community.

 

Planting of trees for carbon sequestration is the most effective

means of mitigating climate change.

Planting food and creating shelter

can free people from poverty.

  

Let's plant lots of food forests,

in regenerative spaces, 

Worldwide.

By Sharing Resources we Live Sustainably and Save Nature

A New Earth

RESTORING THE EARTH

We should be living alongside thriving natural ecosystems. Human beings are designed to cultivate Earth's great garden, not to destroy it. To do this we need to choose a life in harmony, not opposition, with the natural ecological regeneration of nature.

Too often illegal logging destroys habitat that was supposed to be protected. Without a local population of human guardians much illegal destruction goes unchallenged.

 

Ecologically sustainable, conscious communities formed within and around natural habitats for the purpose of ecological restoration are the most sustainable way of protecting endangered areas.

Through regenerative communities we can

restore and extend former habitats to protect and monitor endangered species. Communal ecological regeneration projects can more closely monitor and protect the natural ecosystems upon which nature depends while providing a pathway for humanity and the world to return to a truly sustainable, natural and ancient way of living.

A Sustainable Community Project.jpg

Art to Save Earth

My goal with this project is to prepare a space for those who care for each other and nature.

This space will give workshops and facilities to free humanity from the world while

sharing regenerative collaborative culture.  A place to spread inner light.

If you would like to support this project into reality I am using all profits from Art Sales to create the first spaces (we are forming the first community now, so get in touch if you feel called).   Thereafter each site will support others to form and grow organically as one united

community, working freely together for humanity and nature worldwide.

All of my fine art prints are crafted to the highest archival quality at an incredible carbon neutral facility. On top of this they each directly fund carbon sequestration through several supported tree planting projects. Art, collaboration and loving creation can truly save nature.

Protecting Nature is the Way, the truth and the life.

To live peacefully with each other and cultivate good lives together we need

to recognise and respect the life within all of ourselves, 

the animals, mother nature and future generations.

It is time we all looked more deeply within;

to recognise what truly matters in life. 

Love is precious and life sacred.

To protect life is love. ​

Life is sacred.

When we begin to collectively protect Nature, 

All life here will thrive and humanity will evolve.

There are many people already fighting for planet Earth,

but many more are needed to tackle this issue globally.

We need a collective awakening, and quickly.

That's what this project is all about.
