The Big Slowdown



What would the world look like if no one had an assigned job?


What would it look like if there were no money?


What would the world look like if there were no major super markets, no cars, no planes or trains?


What would that say about life - what it always was and what it should be?


Where does the real value lie?


It lies in having the skills to cooperate and collaborate with your neighbours


It lies in having the skills to grow and cultivate your own food


In being able to work with your hands to build and fix things


It lies in managing local resources to good effect and in being efficient


It lies in being able to lead and take responsibility


It lies in being a healing presence, working with nature and not against it


It lies in learning and growing.


It lies in being virtuous and working for the common good, because in the end, we not only need each other, but it’s in the uniqueness of human relationships when we actualise our whole being (as humans).


There’s no inherent value in the financial markets


Or in buying a new tennis racquet or a Gucci handbag


It’s incredible how easily we forget these things


And ironic what it takes to remind us.


The storm shall pass, it always does - it’s nature’s way.


But let’s not take what we have for granted, let’s do better and be better


And when this whole thing blows over, let’s reconnect and stay connected with where the value actually lies


It some ways what we are experiencing is the big slow down, but in another way, it’s an opportunity for a big reset
