Paul Hawken - A Love Story

global oneness project A Love Story When I wrote "Blessed Unrest," I realized that what I was writing was a love story. Paul Hawken - Northern California - Environmentalist, Entrepreneur, Author And I know that for myself because when I've written other books, it was more like cautionary stories or maybe solution stories, but they weren't love stories. So I think about how to fall in love right now. I think about how do we teach each other, ourselves, to fall in love with the world? I think we've fallen out of love. And we all have in our lives. We've been in love and we've been out of love, and we know what the difference is and what it feels like. And when I think of teachers like Janine Benyus and people like that, why do we respond to her? Why do we respond to her teachings and her manner and the qualities that she embodies? It's because she's in love. She just loves the world around her. She's a biologist in this case, but it doesn't matter. You can be a poet or a singer, anything you want. So I think more about writing love stories--not romance, but about the world as we know it and how beautifully it is all connected, how beautiful it is right now the way it is. I just feel like we can forget that because we get so driven by our fear, we get so driven by wanting to do good, we get so driven by wanting to save the world, that we can lose that real quality that absolutely transforms the world, which is love itself and being in love. And who do we want to be around, really? We want to be around the person who's in love. - Footage courtesy of the Pachamama Alliance
