Custodians. 

The Solution and Earth in Crisis: Science, Indigenous Wisdom, the Natural World and You.

Vincent McMahon 

Book Synopsis
In our modern world happiness, success and prosperity have become linked to consumption. However, despite our stockpiling of ‘stuff’ many of us feel empty, unfulfilled, stressed or overworked. One of the many problems with consumption as a way of being in the world, is that the ‘stuff’ we consume comes at a huge cost to the earth. We either dig, mine, harvest or burn the earth’s resources to satiate our desire to be good enough, happy enough or successful enough.
We have been trying to fill an empty hole inside ourselves. But it hasn’t worked.
Over millennia our mythologies have changed from stories of connection to stories of separation and unworthiness – for example, being cast from the Garden of Eden.
When we feel separate and unworthy, we develop inauthentic psychological roles and behavioural archetypes to control our life experience. These in turn influence our behaviour, choices and actions. Our current behaviour, choices and actions are having a negative impact on our personal wellbeing, our quality of life, and our earth.
Custodians is a practical roadmap guiding the reader through the knowledge contained within;
• Science and the Quantum Field
• Indigenous wisdom
• The natural world
… which shows us that we live in an inter-connected world and that we are loved.
In Custodians we will explore how to release inauthentic psychological dynamics and behavioral patterns, so that we don’t have to consume ‘stuff’. We will also sow the seeds of a new mythology based on worthiness, connection and love to fill the empty hole inside ourselves. In doing this we move to a more authentic way of being in our relationship with ourselves, our fellow humans, and the earth. In this way we become custodians, and the agents of change that the earth has been waiting for.
