As the last Homo sapien draws its dying breath, Grasshopper looks on and proclaims, “We creatures of ‘less intelligence,’ as you called us, have survived your excesses and will seek a new partnership, a new experience with creatures from other systems that are reverent to all forms of energy.”
“I understand what you say, Grasshopper,” the human sighs. “Maybe I will revisit you as another form.” Grasshopper then encounters Amoeba, a single cell newly born that is seeking guidance in how to evolve in harmony with its environment.
In this provocative, powerful parable, Grasshopper conveys to the new life form the history of the human species’ grand development and disastrous self-destruction. Fueled by Amoeba’s curiosity and enthusiasm, Grasshopper describes humans’ descent into the “cons” of control, consumption, and conceit, and the distortion of technology from TECH (Transform, Enable, Create, and Honor) to NOLOGY (Narcissistic, Obsessive, Lavish, Obstinate, Grandiose, and Yoking).
Under Grasshopper’s tutelage, Amoeba discovers the value of the three R’s of honoring (Respect, Responsibility, and Relativity) and learns to recognize Blessings in all events, energies, and encounters. Nourished by Grasshopper’s wisdom, clarity, and kindness, Amoeba sets out to evolve in a manner honoring all forms of creation.
Grasshopper and Amoeba is a riveting tale that casts a clear light on the path taken by human civilization, showing us how we can alter our course to create a more sustainable and fulfilling future for all.
“All energy vibrates to Love,” said Grasshopper. “Love is the song of divinity. Love is the harmony of unity. Love is the structure of creativity. Love is the foundation of infinity. Love Is All That Is.”
“I am love!” declared Amoeba.
