Water is a fantastic element, and I am continuously fascinated by it. As it turns out, water is not only necessary for life but also plays a significant role in climate change.
It is a well-known fact that the ocean is absorbing most of the heat added to Earth’s system due to the burning of fossil fuels. Among other things, warmer waters cause coral bleaching and force many species to migrate so that they can maintain the temperature conditions they need to survive. Ocean waters are also becoming more acidic, which is directly harming ocean plants and shell-forming organisms. All these changes are, in turn, affecting the lives of many people who rely on the ocean for food. As seawater warms, it expands. That, combined with the melting of the ice around the South and the North Poles, is making sea levels rise.
Also, changes in ocean temperatures and wind patterns due to climate change can alter oceanic currents. Such changes have the potential of impacting not only marine life but also terrestrial life since currents play a crucial role in maintaining the planet’s climate.
Climate change is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) challenges the human race has created for itself (I can also think of nuclear weapons). We can pretend it doesn’t exist, or we can acknowledge it and get to work.
It is time for us to re-evaluate our relationship with water and the environment as a whole. However, I dare say that we will only be able to do that once we change our relationship with ourselves.
As I sat down to write Water People, I was guided down a path that made me pause and reconsider where we are and where we are going as spirits in human form. It dawned on me that we are being given the task of becoming custodians of the environment.
However, the transformation we want to see in the world will only occur as a consequence of our raised awareness. That is, as we shatter the false sense of self (i.e., the ego), the light and clarity that we really are will manifest itself through our doing in the world.
Water People tells the story of a group of water-loving souls determined to transform the way we treat each other and the environment. It is a call to action disguised as a novel. It challenges its readers to first connect with the universal love energy within and then act as agents of transformation in the world.
The moment has come. It is time for us to leap to a new world order, one that is based on compassion for ourselves, others, and the environment.
Water People invites you to become a caretaker of the planet by first becoming at caretaker of your mind.
Sample Amazon Reviews
“Very special and interesting book. I like how Angelo makes use of reincarnation theory as a technique to weave stories together over several lifetimes. This was done in classic Hindu and Buddhist stories, and is a very powerful plot device, unfortunately rare in modern writing. So I very much appreciated Angelo’s use of it. Water People combines moving personal plot lines with environmental awareness and a very cool political outlook. Highly recommended.”
“Since I read and enjoyed Angelo’s previous books, I purchased Water People even though I couldn’t imagine what they had to do with Spirituality. I loved it! His characters are presented as spiritual entities continuously reincarnating on earth as a way to incorporate new understanding in the spiritual world. My lesson learned in this story is that we must always gather knowledge and use it to help us change for the better. We need to understand that what holds us back is our ego, which constantly tells us to believe all the negative misinformation., the baggage, we drag through life, which we mindlessly allow to rule our life, crushing our imagination and creativity. So enjoy the book, find out who the water people are, and share positive energy so they can save our beautiful and precious earth.”
