Nicolae Tanase: John, what is the meaning of life?
John Perkins: The meaning of life for me is to do my part in helping to promote the greatest revolution in human history, the Consciousness Revolution. This is a revolution that has been part of the prophecies of many of the world’s great cultures.
It is a time for us to wake up to the fact that we are living on a very fragile space station that has no shuttles. We can’t get off. We have to transform ourselves from our addiction to a very destructive economic system to one that honors life.
It is a time for us to commit ourselves to creating an environmentally sustainable and regenerative, socially just, spiritually fulfilling human presence on this living earth.
