PRIORITIES

 

All the common 'green' actions for personal and global transformation are important: simplify your life; reduce, reuse, recycle; have an environmentally friendly yard and garden; compost; use less plastic; fly less often, if at all; switch to green power; be mindful in food and transportation; and so on. Most importantly, conduct a climate audit—for example, using the Carbon Footprint Calculator for individuals and households—to help prioritize the changes with the greatest impact. However, Climate Yoga is about transcending and including these material-level changes and emphasizing the far more profound mystical solutions.

Climate Yoga leadership involves getting more people involve in advanced Climate Yoga meditations for SRM & CDR with scientific studies. Leadership is the creation of local and state policy groups and policy models for negative emissions. Leadership includes following Yogic and Hindu values like pluralism, non-harming, moderation, and a quest for truth.

 

  • Combining climate science to enhance ancient meditations

  • Training & Creating Jobs for Yoga Meditations

  • Negative emission lifestyles, foods, homes, and technology

  • Negative emission communities, districts, and states

Ashtanga Yoga

1. Yama: Sit quietly with stillness. Radiate peace, love and compassion. Have compassion, patience, generosity, forgiveness.

2. Niyama: Be mindful of your environment. Be mindful of your disciplined spiritual observance, being thankful for our daily meditations. Being content, feeling tranquility, equanimity, surrender, knowing our true Self.

3. Asana: Give thanks to your body, your temple of spirit. Sit quietly with stillness. Sit with a straight spine.

4. Pranayama: Control prana.

5. Pratyahara: withdraw your senses away from the external world outside. Direct your attention internally. Still the mind and senses and directly experience the inner reality of the heart, which is experienced as ecstatic bliss and oneness. Visualize, imagine: go deep into your innermost being, where there is peace, stillness and love.

6. Dhāraṇā (concentration): Focus on an object of concentration, a bioregion or climate priority. With a calm mind, we concentrate on a single mental object or deity. Our attention and consciousness travels to that object. As you breathe out of your heart in your next breath, an enormous beam of energy flowing out to a person or place that you love.

 

  • Cooling the Arctic

  • Increasing Forested Cover (up 25%)

  • Health, detoxification, balance of the Oceans

  • Health and Regular Rain for Boreal Forests

  • Greening the Sahara/Sahel

  • Reviving, Growing, Thriving Coral Reefs

  • Biochemical Flows: detoxification of Nitrogen, Phosphorous.

  • Agricultural Areas

 

Focus on what you want. With a quite mind, peace, and calm, stay centered and focus on what you want. Think about a specific intention. Visualize your intention in your mind. Create the reality you desire. Manifest your desires and intentions. Experience whatever comes up for you, for the highest benefit of yourself and others.

Notice any characteristics of this beam of love pouring out of your heart to this person or place that you love… Now, make this beam twice as strong. As you breathe you double its strength as it was, pouring out from your heart. Breathing in and on the outbreath, sending that love to the places and people that you love. Feel the strength of your love, of your energy, feel the power of your love, the intensity. Now, focus on bathing your own body in the beam of your love. Send energy to any part of your physical body and your earth body.

 

  1. Dhyāna (meditation): Your concentration is uninterrupted. Stillness. No thoughts. Radiate love and light. Focus on the feeling of love within the heart. This activates the heart chakra. The heart chakra begins to spin more and bigger, and generate more love, which further stills the mind. As the heart spins faster, the mind becomes more still until love completely overwhelms the mind. One merges into the universal mind, the Source, and this gradually merges with a state of samadhi.

 

The world is fundamentally light. Reality is an energy continuum not separate from you. Light enters your heart with inhalation and emerges from your heart and surges out into the world as you exhale. It's a surge of ecstatic creative urgency; an impulse to manifest/create, arising from the field of cosmic love, the cosmic game of Lila.

 

8. Samadhi: In a state of ecstasy, bliss, and peace, You merge with the object and desire of focus. You transcend the self. You realize your connection to the Divine and see your interconnectedness with all living things.

Samadhi is an awakening of one's divinity. Experience the all-encompassing oneness that underlies life. Samadhi or mukti is Brahama-consciousness, when the yogi separates the manas from the body and unites with the Atma or paramatam. “I am Existence, Intelligence, and Bliss, always free, of one essence.” Contemplation on a deity within the heart, full of ecstasy, entranced, leads to Samadhi. (Gheranda Samhita). In samadhi, siddhis are possible, where yajnas and meditations purify the atmosphere.

One creates these vibrations of light, love, and bliss and can create this at will. One thinks, 'This inner peace is mine now and forever. I deeply and completely accept this version of me that experiences this deep inner peace and high vibrations.’ Tap on your third eye. One more deep breath, looking around. Carry this energy with you throughout the day.

Mass Collaboration

To review some of the (American & Indian & Universal) priorities, it's about the economy, creating jobs, national security and safety, healthcare, budget, taxes and subsidies, land and agriculture, education, law, justice, energy, environment, infrastructure, technology, foreign policy, and social programs—according to the 2018 White House. Americans are also focused on improving the political and economic conditions of issues such as wealth and income equality, minimum income, cost of living and housing, ending wars, criminal justice reform, and compliance with the Paris Climate Goals.

Climate Yoga can facilitate big emission reductions with various projects, such as training and staffing public-funded healthcare clinics, with free services based on ancient Ayurvedic practices and treatments. This is the basis of any sustainable universal healthcare system based on ancient knowledge. The Yogic Healthcare clinics can also address other basic Human Rights and SDGs.

Climate Yoga jobs can be funded by a Green New Deal—with negative GHG projects for saving 80% by 2020s, from energy, food, healthcare, housing, transportation, and other sources of emissions. Climate projects need to create large-scale negative emission sequestration projects by 2030s—with big subsidy shifts in agricultural production, forestry, soil-carbon banking, and ocean blue ribbon coastal habitat, seaweed farms, and phytoplankton projects, and other priorities in Drawdown. The public sphere needs to create order from chaos.

The climate crisis is also reflected in the political crisis, but the solution is seen in a quick reflection on the top interconnected political priorities: get big money out of politics, campaign finance reform, voter enfranchisement and participation and paper ballots, fair elections, and transitioning to an empowered democracy with high participation in public projects and jobs in a 'New Deal'

The American vision needs to include a near-term victory in the war on terror, to create a peace economy, to reduce military spending, and to create peace (SDGs) projects with “enemies”. We need to focus on creating jobs and empowering universal democratic participation, debates, and policy-improvements on priority issues. There should be ubiquitous public debate forums and easy and convenient internet-phone and with online and public forums and householder's participation with increased special voting on issues and policies related to governance, laws, justice, equality, taxes, budgets, climate Drawdown projects—and ways to improve easy participation for creating local policies as best practices for international policy-making.

Local communities need to create local policies as the incubator for state, national, and global policy. This is one mechanism where ideas ripple up from the individual household and community microcosm into the planetary microcosm—which creates a shift in the collective consciousness. The possibility of swift change lies in people coming together in movements large enough to shift local and state policy.

Climate policy priorities include Ayurveda healthcare, education and jobs, to create and save trillions in healthcare benefits each year. Other priorities include preparations for evacuating hazard zones and mass-migrations from regional and global climate disasters and displacements—especially the Pacific Nations, Bangladesh, and the majority of people living in big cities on the coasts or in a pre-modern 500-year flood or storm zone, about 80-90% of the global population. We need fair and humane immigration and refugee policy to facilitate relocations and job trainings. Priorities also include ending most genetic modifications to plants, animals, and people. We also need to create millions of jobs and lots of work for environmental restoration and hazard zone evacuation. These initiatives can save and protect trillions in wealth.

 

In the language of the IPCC and Paris Goals, Climate Yoga is a high emission reduction proposal and an environmentally sustainable technology (EST) based on traditional knowledge (TK). It is based on 'expert technology transfer', for 'analyzing and identifying ways to facilitate and advance technology transfer.' Climate Yoga projects can be scalable and replicable with education and training.

Experts estimate that, due to nonlinear effects related to Field phenomena of consciousness, with as few as 10,000 to 144,000 people participating in meditations, we can create significant global changes—to sequestering billions of tons of GHGs per climate yogi group of about 10-100 yogis. This Climate Yoga vision is for a mass collaboration meditation project, to amplify the effects, and to focus on creating specific changes in the Arctic, Forests, Oceans and Atmosphere.

Based on the Maharishi Effect—where the square root of 1% of a population has a measurable influence on a population—about 8,700 meditators (8700 x 8700 x 100) would influence the global population of about 7.6-7.7 billion people (2018). The Maharishi Effect includes results that show an average of 16% and up to 23% reductions in crime (6 sigma results). Climate Yogis could enhance the Field for better weather conditions, to significantly enhance the primary productivity of plants and animals, to prevent storms, and so on. These are significant (80%) climate wedges.

Around the world, there are millions of people meditating for world peace and dozens of organizations helping to synchronize meditations for powerful effects: to raise the Earth’s frequency, to elevate our collective consciousness, and to heal the Earth. Global meditations are known to reduce the rate of crime, terrorism, violence, and accidents. Focused meditations can also reduce pollution and bring about climate stability. Evidence suggests that we need about 10,000 daily participants around the world for a lasting difference—for sustaining the Climate Yoga vision for the next 10,000 years. This should be relatively easy based on the number of people already participating in organized, synchronized meditations—plus tens of millions more people who are advanced meditators but not yet organized, in concert, synchronized with divine unity.

Citizen's Climate Pledge:

I am concerned about the serious risks that climate change poses for present and future generations. With my signature I agree to take the following actions: I promise to do my best to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by me and to cut my personal climate footprint by half within ten years or faster. To achieve the target, I will pay attention to the climate footprint of my energy use, travling, eating and consumption habits, electronic devices and household appliances as well as my financial savings. I will make low-carbon choices wherever possible. I pledge to consider addressing my unavoidable climate footprint by offsetting emissions which I cannot reduce, to become climate neutral now. I will share my experiences in making cleaner choices with my family, friends and colleagues and encourage them to sign the pledge, too. By signing the Climate Pledge I’m sending a message to the decision makers, companies and to all levels of society, to implement ambitious policies and practices which prevent the harmful effects of climate change and to secure the living conditions of mankind, as promised in the Paris Climate Change Agreement. (climatepledge.global).

 

The People's Demands for Climate Justice

(Dec. 2018)

Keep fossil fuels in the ground. 1. Developed countries pledge for a just and equitable transition to 100% Renewable Energy by 2030. 2. Governments phase out subsidies to the fossil fuel industry and pledge to divest fully from fossil fuels by 2020. 3. Pledge to an outright and immediate ban on fracking and adopt a global moratorium on new fossil fuel exploration and extraction techniques starting in 2018. 4. Agree to an international moratorium on new coal projects effective immediately.

Reject false solutions that are displacing real, people-first solutions to the climate crisis. 1. Reject offsets. 2. Honor the international Moratorium on geoengineering established by the Convention on Biological Diversity. 3. Reject Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) projects, and other technofixes. 4. Stop the conversion of local agricultural lands to non-food production purposes. 5. Reject REDD+, REDD-like projects, Internationally-Traded Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs), and all forms of carbon trading schemes that undermine human and indigenous rights, including indigenous cultures, territorial sovereignty, and integrity. 6. Stop supporting and promoting burning biomass as renewable energy and reject the substitution of biofuels and bioenergy as an alternative to fossil fuels. 7. Reject corporate-fronted schemes promoting so-called “Climate Smart Agriculture”.

Advance real solutions that are just, feasible, and essential. 1. Transform energy systems away from corporate-controlled fossil fuels and other harmful sources such as nuclear, mega-hydro, and biofuels to a clean, safe system that empowers people and communities. 2. Support ecological restoration to recover natural sinks, and stop all projects that are extremely destructive of Earth’s natural capacity to absorb greenhouse gases. 3. Support global efforts for a just and equitable transition that enables energy democracy, creates new job opportunities, encourages distributed renewable energy, and protects workers and communities most affected by extractive economies. 4. Commit to policies that embrace agro-ecological practices and food sovereignty in place of “Climate Smart Agriculture”. 5. Facilitate and support non-market approaches to climate action. 6. Adopt a technology framework that recognizes the importance of endogenous and indigenous technologies and innovations in addressing climate change, and enables developing countries and communities to develop, access, and transfer environmentally sound, socially acceptable, gender responsive and equitable climate technologies. 7. Respect and enable non-corporate, community-led climate solutions that recognize the traditional knowledge, practices, wisdom, and resilience of indigenous peoples and local communities, and protect rights over their lands and territories. 8. Ensure participatory and transparent assessment of all proposed climate technologies and reject barriers to technology access and transfer such as intellectual property rights.

Honor climate finance obligations to developing countries 1. Replenish the Green Climate Fund to ratchet up climate action to stay below 1.5°C global temperature rise, and fulfill developed countries’ commitment to provide $100 billion a year by 2020. 2. Provide adequate and real money (in addition to Overseas Development Assistance) to scale up adaptation and ensure protection to climate migrants and those impacted by climate change. 3. Developed countries must make new concrete pledges of public climate finance accompanied by a definite timeline for delivery. 4. Commit to climate reparations to those most affected but least responsible for climate change.

End corporate interference in and capture of the climate talks. 1. Advance a conflict of interest policy that protects Paris Agreement implementation and global climate policy from obstruction by Big Polluters, and mandates governments take action at the national level. 2. Prohibit industries that profit from fossil fuels and the climate crisis from influencing international and national climate policy forums. 3. Reject every attempt by corporations and their proxies to insert themselves into the negotiations. 4. Advance a call to hold corporations accountable for the impacts of decades of misinformation and political interference in climate policy.

Developed countries must honor their “Fair Shares” for largely fueling this crisis. 1. Developed countries must publicly recognize and act on their greater historical responsibility for GHGs. 2. Ensure developed countries take ambitious action in accordance with their historical responsibility and capacity, with ambitious domestic targets (including the rapid phase out of fossil fuel extraction and dirty energy subsidies), international cooperation, and support for global climate finance and Just Transition in developing countries. 3. Drastically increase the ambition of domestic commitments and global targets to limit warming to 1.5°C and ensure such commitments are set in accordance with science and equity.

The Ten key short-term sectoral benchmarks to limit warming to 1.5°C

 

(Kuramochi, 2017) are actions to be taken by 2020 to 2025: 1. Sustain the current growth rate of renewables and other zero and low-carbon power generation until 2025 to reach 100% share by 2050; 2. No new coal power plants, reduce emissions from existing coal fleet by 30% by 2025; 3. Last fossil fuel passenger car sold by 2035–2050; 4. Develop and agree on a 1.5°C-consistent vision for aviation and shipping; 5. All new buildings fossil-free and near-zero energy by 2020; 6. Increase building renovation rates from less than 1% in 2015 to 5% by 2020; 7. All new installations in emissions-intensive sectors low-carbon after 2020, maximize material efficiency; 8. Reduce emissions from forestry and other land use to 95% below 2010 levels by 2030, stop net deforestation by 2025; 9. Keep agriculture emissions at or below current levels, establish and disseminate regional best practice, ramp up research; 10. Accelerate research and planning for negative emission technology deployment.
