ORGANIC LIFE is a slideshow to raise awareness of the principles by which all life on Earth has come to be. The idea that a minority has to feed the entire world is totally false. Every individual and every community can live of the abundance of food provided by the original elements. A few square meters of organic soil can feed a family all year round and still have surplus to share.
This slideshow will show you a way of life that has never been known by the general consumer public
since it has become more convenient to walk into a supermarket, where everything is made to look fresh and neat, but in fact all supermarket food is chemicals inundated from the GM non reproductive seeds through the chain of storage and transport right up to the supermarket shelves.
This and more pages on organics to come will show you a way of life which will render all of the big corporate food business fairy tales null and void. Please watch and learn.

ABOUT THE SLIDE SHOW
All pictures are taken around the Northern Rivers, a country district in northern New South Wales Australia. The region surrounding the district business town of Lismore has many small villages where people pursuing the organic way of life live on small bush land acreage amid larger, established farms many of which persistently adhere to conventional chemical farming practices.
The way of life here is one of controversial contrast. Farm supply businesses continue to sell chemical pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers an non reproductive GM seeds and seedlings, the big supermarket consortium still dominates the district and continues to push small business out of existence by undercutting prices and through positions in "government" - there is hardly anything available that is not made by Chinese slave labor and without chemicals and lasting consistency.
Despite this force against a sustainable way of life, the backbone of this community lies with the people who came to live in this district since the mid 1960s to find an alternative lifestyle in a pristine, healthy environment. Many have established self sufficient, sustainable gardens both for private and community purposes. Lismore has several organic and vegetarian shops, suppliers and restaurants.
The Lismore Certified Organic Growers Market held at the showground on the outer fringes of the town was established in 1999. The photos in the above slideshow will tell you better than mere words that the vitality of life itself lives right here. Similar markets do exist in other places around Australia and indeed, the world.
Life was designed ORGANIC - it cannot be replaced by man invented and perpetually recycled chemicals. The consumer society of today has yet to catch on to the fact that chemically produced and manufactured food harms both body and brain to the extent where like any addiction vigorous denial overrides common sense.
ABOUT THE PHOTOS ON THE RIGHT
NOVEMBER 25 INTERNATIONAL GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS DAY is about positive thinking towards change. The change VOICES FOR CHANGE seek is one of attitude in the Global Community - Life is not to be ignorantly destroyed but to be respected and cared for. Humanity has a long way to go before it will see the difference between care and violation. Violation is this society's prominent hallmark, on the whole, as there are people who live to make the necessary changes, in their own life and in view of change throughout the world.
These photos depicting but a miniscule few of the millions upon millions of violations are here for those who ignorantly continue to support those industries and human occupations which contribute to an unsustainable, finite life for humanity. This vicious, self perpetuating, human created cycle has to find its end in an educated society, a new way of thinking and conduct. In the globalized world of relentless corporate consumerism promotion people are deceived and led to believe the promises of falsehood, a life that has nothing to do with Life.
Painting pretty pictures alone as many people do, does not change human behavior. There must be a reason for change - if it is accepted that everything else is but an illusion and does not exist, or does not affect a comfortable individual personally, pretty pictures provide no reason for change. The reasons are clearly represented in those few pictures on the right.
The words "humane" and "inhumane" are common place among every human shopping at a supermarket, buying slave labor produced gadgets and commodities, fussily choosing a pretty piece of animal meat at a butcher shop, devouring Monsanto chemicals at McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Red Rooster, Domino's etc. etc. It makes no sense to use either word or complain about the establishment, unless one is prepared, as an individual, to change attitude, thinking and behavior.
ABOUT THE POLITICS OF GLOBALIZATION
Most people working within the bureaucracies of government institutions, banks, industrial and corporate world trade establishments are but every day people, doing a job to earn a living, mundane as these jobs are, while the breadline to poverty irony for most "workers" remains strictly controlled to see every hard earned cent go back into the system. Very few people actually live a fulfilling life, even less manage to live a gratifying near to independent life.
Politics never was a place of anything to do with life, education and common prosperity. Politics is a dirty game, adversely affecting the life on this Planet. The politics of globalization and turning humanity into a slave labor force isn't new, it evolved over the millenniums, played out in the smallest communities, nibbling its way little by little to what is now the greatest threat to a 7 billion plus population depending on the one source, Planet Earth. All played their part: Family heads, community heads, religious heads, government heads, military heads, business and entrepreneurial heads and now the heads holding the reigns to a financial world on which every living soul depends.
The processes of human divisional evolution are simply genocidal. The warnings are such that you can't walk anywhere without being confronted with a sign that says it in plain language: "WARNING" or "We have created a multitude of health hazards, poisons, dangerous pitfalls in service of humanity and the environment, and see it our duty of care to put the warnings in place where ever progress poses the likelihood of injury or death" and "Quote unquote, the onus of responsibility rests with you, the user and consumer of Life On Earth".
AUSTRALIA THE LAND DOWN UNDER
We're a proud nation, so we are constantly reminded by our government, irrespective of which government runs the country, your state, your city or town. And every cattle farmer from a million acre station feed lot to a die hard small acreage Monsanto farmer, wildlife "sports" shooter and Sunday fisherman will echo these words parrot fashion.
This nation, an Empire established outpost to dump Irish "criminals", people who had to steal a slice of bread since under the illegal rule of the Empire, while aboriginal children were taken from their families and put under the care of Anglo nuns and priests in learn to work disciplines, was called "The Lucky Country", where the worker and the white collar were on equal par, at least in speaking terms: A guy down on his pennies addressed the big man as "mate", and vice versa. No class distinction in the "Land of Sunshine and Opportunity" then, back in the "good old days" - hindsight reveals all, the truth may sleep for years, but it simply cannot be erased, history is history, here to stay until the lessons have been learned and change is no longer an issue no one wants any part of.
So here we are, writing about change, from a country that is still wet behind the ears compared with "sophisticated" Europe. Australia, a paradise for foreign investors, corporate take overs, under the dictatorship of what is still left of the greatest world power built on the graveyards of untold millions of North American natives and African and Indian slave labor.
Under the guise of "Democracy", crime, corruption, vandalism, exploitation and abuse are as real in Australia as in places where military dictatorship rules, the "democratic World, just as complicit in global genocide as every other place on Earth. This is why VOICES FOR CHANGE have declared November 25 International Global Consciousness Day. If you believe change is long overdue, then stand up on November 25.
