“All it takes is rumor...The danger itself is irrelevant. It's the perception of danger we're selling.”

“How can we expect to heal the world if we do not first heal ourselves? Society is a reflection of our actions and our behavior, which would explain why our violent and destructive nature correlates with a violent and destructive society.”

“Without love there is nothing that binds us together. We live in a vast Universe where there is no sign of life for millions of light years. For small beings such as us, the immensity of the Universe is only bearable through love. Everything that we love about life we have experienced on this small rock in an infinite sea of space.”

“Earth is all that we have. We need to protect it. We can do this by bringing an end to mass pollution, deforestation, and industrialization. How we bring an end to these dangers is by informing those that are ignorant to the situation, and making the people more aware of their power to create change. This is only achievable through love. Love is the force that drives us to improve the planet. It is out of the love for our fellow human beings, animals, trees, oceans, and life that we strive to make this a better place to live.”

“We will not create a better Earth by separating ourselves with borders, fighting each other in wars, and arguing over our ideals. We need to walk the streets expressing love in everything we do. Appreciate life, show compassion for all living things, help each other out, form a community, be kind to strangers, be open, and listen to one another. That is how you express love. Not by violence, arguments, greed, power, competition, negative conversation, and condescending lifestyles.”

“When we learn to love one another, we will recognize the things that benefit humanity as a whole, rather than what benefits our selfish behavior as individuals. To do this, we need to understand our oneness with the universe. We all came from the same source and we will all return to the same source. Every one of us is an intrinsic part of our environment, and we each need to begin acting in a way that respects life and the natural world.”
Joseph P. Kauffman, Conscious Collective: An Aim for Awareness

Joseph P. Kauffman
“By loving each other and the world we live in, we can work together toward the common goal of peace. When people work together toward a common goal, they are unstoppable. We need to be willing to work toward a positive goal. Instead of "fighting" the negatives, we need to collaborate on creating and enhancing the positives. Elevating the economic power of all people, living in peace in mutually beneficial ways, and respecting the religious beliefs of others even if they are different than ours, as long as they have positive impacts on the living.”

“We must see the big picture. There are bigger things going on than the events that you experience in your daily life. We cannot get caught up in irrelevant distractions put out by the media. If we decide to work together toward the common goal of peace, then we cannot be stopped.”
Joseph P. Kauffman, Conscious Collective: An Aim for Awareness

Joseph P. Kauffman
“Talking about peace is not enough. Each of us individually needs to live a lifestyle that promotes peace, good will, and love in everything that we do. Actions speak louder than words. If you do not actually live a life that benefits the Earth and its inhabitants, then you are part of the reason why our planet is dying.”
Joseph P. Kauffman, Conscious Collective: An Aim for Awareness

Joseph P. Kauffman
“We cannot fight negative with negative; we need to start living a positive life. This is more than just a saying. Living positively sets in motion a force with great momentum. The more people that embody this force, the stronger it becomes.”

Joseph P. Kauffman
“A global revolution is the last thing that the rich people in power want to happen, so of course it is not documented on any major media outlet. Regardless of what the media says, the people are waking up to the truth and the potential is incredible. What we do with this potential and how we choose to guide it is extremely important.”

“Growing your own food is like printing your own money. When you grow your own food, you supply your family with meals and help them survive, without the help of a food business. This is how we begin to shift toward a more resource-based economy, by providing our own resources in the safety of our own backyards. Make sure the food you grow is organic and do not use any harmful pesticides or fertilizers. By growing your own food, you can also build a great community. People will work together for the common goal of eating a healthy meal.”

“In our early history, agriculture provided the means for civilized life. The central focus of civilization was to maintain the crops and ensure that the entire community received adequate nourishment. By becoming city-dwellers, we have drifted away from this core principle of civilization. As the damaging effects of neglecting our food supply are becoming more and more apparent, it is clear that humanity needs to return our central focus to the production and distribution of healthy food.”

“Many people have a negative view of marijuana, and even consider it to be a “drug.” Most people’s opinions of marijuana are based on propaganda and misinformation. Marijuana is a plant, and this amazing plant can be used for so many things. The flower of the plant (Cannabis) can be used to benefit health, and the plant itself (Hemp) has thousands of industrial purposes.”

“Love is as essential to us as air, a force that drives us all. It determines who we are, who we become, what we can achieve, and through this, how the world will evolve. It doesn’t matter how much your parents did or didn’t love you, how many friends you have or don’t have, or whether your partner does or doesn’t express their love to you. Only you allow or stop the flow of love into your life.”

“Focusing on nutrition is the first step that we need to take as a society. Understanding where our food comes from, how it is grown, what is in it, and how it effects our health, are essential to maintaining the well-being of our bodies and our culture. Most of us do not have the slightest clue of where our food comes from or how to produce our own food. To really develop a sustainable lifestyle, we must grow our own food. No matter how much food you are able to grow, the knowledge and experience of growing food are fundamental to our survival as a species.”

“Healthy soil = healthy food = healthy body = healthy mind = healthy life. It is as simple as that. The health of our soil determines the quality of our food, the quality of our food determines the amount of energy and nutrients our bodies get, the amount of energy and nutrients we get determines our mood and its influence on our thoughts, which in turn create a balanced and healthy lifestyle.”

“The Universe has expanded, but it originates from the same source. We were made from the same energy that created the stars. You are not your name, your resume, your accomplishments, or your ethnic background; you are a part of the whole Universe, just as a wave is a part of the ocean. You breathe without effort, your cells function independently without your control, your mind functions naturally, you are more than just an identity; you are the Universe. When you understand this intuitively and not just intellectually, you will inevitably feel an overwhelming sense of oneness, a realization that you are not a separate entity, that you are an integral piece of your environment. This realization is the mental state that is properly associated with the term enlightenment.”

“If you want to know the taste of an orange, you have to taste it; no amount of description can exactly convey its taste to you. Similarly, you cannot properly explain enlightenment to someone who has not experienced it.”

“Enlightenment is not about building a false sense of spirituality or blindly following religious doctrine, it is about carefully cultivating practices that relieve one of the ego and transcend the illusory perceptions of the world.”

Joseph P. Kauffman
“When we get rid of our ego, we stop doing things to impress others, we stop trying to cling to the idea of ourselves and we realize that we are a part of the natural world. This realization will give us the perspective that is greatly needed to improve the state of our society.”

“Nature is interconnected; when we do damage to one fraction of the web of life, we do damage to the entire web. Everything that we do affects everything else, including ourselves. We cannot ignore the constant pollution and assume it won’t interfere with our lives down the road. We need to understand the interconnectedness of Nature and act accordingly if we wish to heal our current situation here on Earth. We need to start treating things in relation to every other thing, especially when it involves life, health, and the use of natural resources.”

“We could learn a lot from the philosophy of Shaolin. Their belief that the ego must be transcended in order to focus on reality is an essential lesson that applies to all of humanity. We could also benefit greatly from their philosophy of independence, individualism and self-reliance. Instead of depending on governments and corporations, we should depend on our environment, our compassionate human interaction, and ourselves. To do this, we must practice what we preach. It is easy to speak of ways to heal the world, but to actually act accordingly is much more difficult.”

“If we didn’t kill all of these animals and eat them, then we wouldn’t have to breed all of these cows, pigs, chickens, and other livestock. If we didn’t breed these animals, then we wouldn’t have to feed these animals. If we didn’t have to feed them, we wouldn’t have to devote all of the land to growing grains and legumes to feed to them. So then the forest could come back, wildlife could return, ocean life would return, the rivers would be clean again, the air would be clean again, and our health would return. This is achievable by switching to a plant-based diet and encouraging other people to do the same. Educate yourself and others. Show them that there are delicious and nutritious alternatives to eating meat, and that by eating meat they are contributing to the pollution of the planet. There are plenty of plant foods that will provide you with more than enough nutrients to be healthy.”

“We live in a world that was created from an unlikely series of events. Atoms and molecules formed, and specks of dust created galaxies. Stars and nebulas are destroyed and reborn daily. Our planet was the result of billions of years of astronomical impacts, chemical combinations, and terrestrial evolutions. Human life evolved from molecules of water and developed a unique consciousness; and the forms of life given this amazing gift of life and consciousness, are destroying the very planet from which they were created.
A remarkable chain of events has led to our existence. Earth’s thin atmosphere sustains life and is being destroyed by the very life that it is sustaining. We have been given the gift of life and still we take this experience for granted. Unless we realize the effect that we have on our environment, the Earth will become uninhabitable for life, and everything we have ever known, every person, every event, every memory or good feeling we have felt will be nothing but the past of a self-destructive organism.”

“Cell phones, computers, and internet have made it so that we can interact with anyone around the world at any moment, but the quality of our relationships around us have become less transparent. We no longer see our neighbors as neighbors, or people as people. We have been taught to look through our eyes and not our hearts. It is critical that humanity strengthens the relationships between people and learns to help each other. We were all born on this planet with no idea of who we are, and are forced to develop based on our surroundings to form a sense of identity, but deep down we are all the same.”

“the thing that will really change the world is not millions of people coming together in acts of retaliation against a corrupt system, but the individuals who learn to liberate themselves from the conditioning of their culture. A system no longer works if we choose to stop participating in it.”

“Each of us has a role to play, and we all need to contribute to making the world a better place. You cannot sit back and do nothing and hope for change; one person can make the biggest difference. Throughout history people have tried to say that we need love and we need to work together, which we do, but you cannot truly love anything unless you learn to love yourself. It all boils down to you, the individual.
When individuals accept themselves, they are liberated from their suffering, and are capable of fully embracing the world around them. You are the only one who can change your life. When the people recognize this, real change will come. Do not wait around for someone else to save the world. You are unique and you have knowledge from your own experience that no one else has. You have ideas and passions that nobody else can claim. You could be the one to help us out of the dreadful situation that we are in, but if you do not act on your ambition the world will never know.”
Joseph P. Kauffman, Conscious Collective: An Aim for Awareness

Joseph P. Kauffman
“The greatest threat to our planet is the idea that someone else will save it. Once the majority of individuals have become aware of themselves and the effect that they have on the world, humanity as a whole will, without a doubt, become a conscious collective.”
