Donate

Though I’ve been asked about this in the past, I was always determined to build SEEDS from my own resources. I could hardly let anyone contribute to something that might not work.

Now that the system is complete, though, and is delivering output which I think adds value, any donations for its upkeep and development will be received most gratefully.

  1. I so value the work you do here Tim.

    I’m 62 and, having lost my financial independence in the GFC, I have meagre resources. I now realise what a gift this has been as its clarified what things I really value, things I took for granted 12 years ago, family, friendships my community and my oneness with nature.

    Reading your work since 2013 has helped me come to peace with the world we have, and the fact that our lives of comfort have been made possible by a one-off pulse of fossil fuel energy flowing through the lives of modern humans at this time in the Universe.

    Coming to terms with Energy Descent and the effects of climate change is a serious challenge to the modern psyche. We are so deeply conditioned to the myth of progress that its hard to join the dots between the application of more technology, leading to more complexity, less resilience, more anxiety about the future, more unhappiness and the epidemic of mental illness.

    It seems the antidote is to cultivate equanimity and gratefulness whenever possible so that we can continue to be of service to others. We can be as Kipling put it, the ones “who keep our heads when all around us are losing theirs and blaming it on us.”

    • Thank you so much, Phil, for your generosity and kindness, which leave me short of the words to express my gratitude. I can only say that what is to come will make us immensely reliant on values. Somebody once said that we need the courage to change what we can change, the equanimity to accept what we can’t change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

      Tim

    • It was St Francis of Assisi’s prayer, Tim, using the word God as you understand Him:
      “God grant me the sincerity to accept those things I cannot change, the courage to change those things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”
