Understand, Celebrate and Nurture Life
The SolSeed Movement is about understanding, celebrating and nurturing Life with a capital 'L'. By 'Life', do we mean the rich carpet of living things that graces our beautiful blue-green world or do we mean our time in this universe from birth to death? The answer is both and more.
Understanding Life means studying Life in all its aspects. We will get out in that carpet and examine trees and flowers, birds and fish. We will talk about astronomy so that we understand how the carpet fits into the current universe and paleontology so that we understand how the carpet came about. We will look inward to examine our own lives and think about better ways of living. We will spend time meditating on our place in the biosphere and the biosphere's place in the universe. We will pursue Wisdom.
Some of those better ways of living will include celebrating Life. We will mark the passage of time by coming together and celebrating Solstices and Equinoxes. We will celebrate evolutionary events of the past and milestones in our own lives. We will celebrate by doing the things living creatures do, feasting, actively moving through our environment (skating, swimming, kayaking, hiking, running and bicycling), thinking and talking, singing and dancing. We are living creatures and part of what we will be celebrating is our ability to celebrate. We will embrace Passion.
The celebrations will increase our desires to nurture life. We will take action based on the wisdom we have pursued and using the passion we have embraced. We will nurture our own lives and those of the people around us and thus form a life affirming community. We will nurture the Life around us by helping each other and the people around us care for our local ecosystem. We will nurture the life of our planet by contributing our voices and effort to the growing world movement of life affirming communities. We will work toward a future where humanity helps Life increase its presence, diversity and vitality on this planet rather than a future where humanity continues to injure the life around it. We will work toward a future where the biosphere continues its upward spiral of ever growing possibilities. We will cultivate Empathy.
Sol's Seed, SolSeed
Through Wisdom, Passion and Empathy we will come to see the life around us as a huge and powerful seed. Like a seed, the biosphere is filled with future possibilities waiting to be realized. Also like a seed, it has been building its store of energy and organizing its structures. Like a budding seed it has been expanding and spreading its tendrils into new environments; from the sea it has expanded first onto wet warm land and then into ever colder and dryer places. The biosphere is Sol's Seed, ripening and readying to spread into the universe. As Sol's intelligent spark, we are a key part of that ripening. Someday we will play a key role in helping SolSeed to take root amongst the stars, to give birth to a family of living worlds. This we call TheDestiny.
We believe that such a future is worth striving towards. We call all of this, from nurturing those around us to striving toward TheDestiny, Bringing Life. Please join us in Bringing Life.
