The Coming Together of Energy and Ecology
Excerpt from "YEOMANS’
KEYLINE DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABLE SOIL, WATER, AGROECOSYSTEM AND
BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION: A PERSONAL SOCIAL ECOLOGY ANALYSIS"

Sydney, Penrith South, NSW.
1. We are at a critical threshold – a
moment of profound choice – in the 'psychosocial' development of our
species – of continuing with ways of living that destroy our soils,
habitats and consequently those dependent on them, including ourselves,
or of taking "the road less travelled” – through emphasising personal,
cultural and ecological sustainability and wellbeing – towards healthy
soils, habitats and species.
2. All of us have already started down this road
and wondered, even if only in very preliminary ways, about what to do
next, and about how to dare to do it, and find the allies and other
supports to help us. It is imperative that we acknowledge, share,
celebrate, continue and, where appropriate, to expand on these
3. Further sustainable change will be achieved
largely not through mega-projects, but by each of us individually and
in small mutually supportive and collaborative groups, taking small
meaningful, locally relevant actions, and sharing the processes
involved, and publicly celebrating the outcomes, to make them available
to others (thereby "making such ‘healthy’ approaches contagious").
The whole participation completely outpaced all our outlook.

4. Even small groups of people – if truly
committed to such action – can play a major role in this process of
cultural transformation. A great diversity of other small
compatible groups and initiatives are, at this time in our history,
emerging across the world. This process of synchronous emergence
and eventual reaching of thresholds of significant transformative
change, which has been called 'Morphogenic Change' (Sheldrake
1981) or the '100th Monkey Phenomenon', is just one expression of the
non-linear nature of change in nature. This may be your moment to
take your next significant step in your own process of development and
ecological/social action. I encourage you to use this opportunity
to get the information and support that you need, and to dare to act on
it. If we all postpone taking such action, it is certain that the
quality of life of future generations will progressively be degraded as
we continue to lose our soils, habitats and other species with which we
share this amazing planet.
