We are evolving from a consciousness where we need to be taken care of to where we take care of ourselves and others.
The need to be taken care of allowed the evolution of mass processes over long distances regardless of cultures or bioregions.
The awareness of our ability to take care of ourselves is causing different requirements to come to the forefront.
Localizing food, redeveloping local communities, and recognizing cottage industries are bringing us forward into a new appreciation of ways we can take care of all of us.
Because we know about worldwide resources, but we feel so impersonally toward them and vice versa, we are now at a point to appreciate and utilize our local resources in many new ways.
After the shock or transitioning to local resources, I expect a completely different set of relationships to emerge.
