Energime University Calling
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Every great journey begins with a single step. With that first step we make a commitment. Though that goal may be distant, the end of which we can only imagine, we know the importance of the journey and we press on with focused will and unstoppable determination.
For humankind to make through the 21st century we must re-educate and retrain our population to manage challenges no other generation of humans have had to face. At stake is the health of our planet’s environment, our rich bio-diversity, and the future of our children. We cannot fail.
Energime University is a movement to unite the collective efforts of our global population. Empowered with the specific knowledge and skills required for us to answer these critical challenges we will reverse our current course and usher in a new age of global prosperity and opportunity. You can help. Please support this effort and lend your voice to ours.

Years ago, during the golden age of movies there was a movie called “Gone with the Wind”. A character named Rhett Butler tells Scarlett O’Hara: “Frankly My Dear, I don’t give a damn.” In that scene Rhett had reached a point where he no to longer cared.
I wonder, Is that what is plaguing so many of us around the world today? Living through so many traumatic experiences has left many of us numb. Are we disgusted or afraid? Do we feel helpless and just walk away?
Then I remembered a scene from another movie; “Lord of the Rings.” A character named Frodo, a little fella, is given a task to destroy a Ring. The powers of the ring are evil. Still, no matter what comes his way, Frodo continues on his journey. Although he finds many hurdles, road blocks and numerous attempts to destroy him, Frodo perseveres.
Along the way, Frodo comes across Samwise, Meriadoc, and other characters who will help him and protect him, so he can reach his destination. This little fella’s task was to dispose of the ring, slinging it into a fire pit, where it could no longer do harm.
During his journey, Frodo comes across Saruman the White, an evil Wizard who is churning away, destroying all the trees and also creating hideous monsters.
Unfortunately, this particular scene in the movie, is no longer a fantasy.
Today, at this moment, trees are being felled all over the world. The destruction is real, and terrifying.
This negative force of energy is felt by every thing on this planet; human beings, brother and sisters, and all nations. Trees, birds and many other creatures are disappearing right before our eyes. What will happen next? Who will be next… you and I?
Interestingly, in another movie, “Superman” starts with a scene showing a planet and trembling and falling apart. Superman’s parents put all their hope in the child and send him towards Planet Earth for safety and well being.
One he learns to love and protect.
This story also is no longer a fantasy. Our planet, Mother Earth, is falling apart at an alarming rate and with an over abundance of us on it. Around us we hea
What do we do when we know a storm is brewing on the horizon? You will see human beings preparing and protecting their community. Putting sandbags upon sandbag as a deterrent because their lives will depend on it. This is where a community collectively comes together, working to keep everyone safe.
In our country’s history there was a moment when one man, Paul Revere, shouted from one village to the other, as he cantered on horseback shouting: “The British are coming! The British are coming!” Where would we be today if no one had heeded Paul Reeve’s call?
Throughout today there are many remaining Indian Tribes. Mother Earth is crying out to them, loudly, desperately, every day to them, to send the message of how to cherish and love our earth.
There are those so hell-bent on stripping our Earth of every single resource on this planet for purposes of greed and for their self aggrandizement.
This greed divides us. It creates fear and when we human beings are afraid, we cannot think clearly. One of the things we human beings take pride in, is the ability to think and analyze a situation? Isn’t it?
Think!!! Analyze!!! What is happening around all of us? I hear so many people say: “Somebody should do something!” It reminds me of a statement one of my university professors brought up in class.
He said: “You are going to hurt somebody!”
Many members of the class stated that they would not hurt anybody.
The professor said: “You are going to hurt somebody!”
Again many students in the classrooms said: We are not going to hurt anybody!”
The professor repeated the statement: “You are going to hurt somebody!” for the third time.
In the back of the classroom a very shy student raised her hand and then uttered these very prophetic words:
“We are somebody.”
Our children, our future pioneers are “somebody!”
Energime University calling!
You hold the key. We all need to help empower our children to keep our Earth vibrant and alive.
We have many planets in our solar system that have somehow been destroyed?
Were we there, before we arrived on Earth?

I ask questions. Do you? Have you ever thought about how great athletes are
coached and coached and coached in preparation for the Olympics?
How in baseball, basketball, football, soccer and even golf – the athletes go over and over and over their coaches’ program – fully knowing that the coaches greatest desire is to see their athletes shine into brilliancy.
So why don’t we do the same for our children? They are the future stewards of this planet. Why leave to chance the future of these children and young adults?
We have “coaches”, persons eager to share their knowledge. These “coaches” can share their access to the latest state of the art techniques. Share with future “olympians” – the future pioneers; our children, our young adults.
How much emphasis is given to the education for the children to achieve self-sufficiency? How are we “Coaching” the future generation to grow into becoming knowledgeable stewards of the current resources dwindling on Mother Earth?
We have fun watching our favorite teams win. We enthusiastically cheer with respect the coaches who bring about the athletes potential to a full flown skill. We set the trajectory for them to win.
Do we provide the same caliber of “coaching to our children? There are educators – “coaches”. Educators that can, by sharing their hard earned knowledge and wisdom, provide truly strong scaffolding for the children to safely walk across chasms of neglect, ignorance, deprivation, etc….
With watchful eyes; to “coach”, to educate, to empower future generations with the knowledge and necessary skills so the generational relay team has a fighting chance. Prepare the future pioneers to grab the baton, Planet Earth, fearlessly and hit the pavement running to become Olympians in the race to save Planet Earth.
Energime University Calling! Can you hear us? Will you share the dreams and visions you hold dearly in your heart? The dreams and vision you have been holding for your children? Grandchildren? Nephew? Nieces?
Energime University Calling! Share your time, treasure and talent. Help us funs the true race for the future. Thank you.
