Growing up as I listen to my parents stories., on how they used to swim at rivers so clean and climb on trees so high. They had the freedom. And when I open up my eyes to a dream. I ask myself where have all those stuff been? All I see are mechanisms that require energy producing pollutants for unnecessary use. Children amused by this images they see on a rectangle screen. These little glimpse of happiness they feel sitting indoors, scrolling and tapping. conversing with people they can’t even see.  And now as a Filipino living in a different country. I have observed that some people are still unaware of this warning signs. People are still ignorant about the thing that only matter, and it is Earth. Half of the world are too busy with man made problems While the other half are suffering. Children  swimming at rivers of garbage.  A civilization of slave drives working for Money. The cycle of waking up and doing whatever we want to do, and then going back to sleep. The Precious gift of life they say. Let us drink wine to that. Of course the ones enjoying the good side of life will be the positive ones about life. Until its too late. Earth might only be remembered by photographs from the present moment. Reminded by the conversations I had with my good childhood friend on how we must “Break the Habits” of life. We will not achieve change unless we do. This old ways of living won’t work anymore. We live in a new age which requires new ways of living. Too distracted by Technology, Luxuries, Illusions, Progrramed by television and their so called reality. Those who are living in the “moment” and declining responsibilty as humans we were assigned of. And that is taking care of this planet. Who Am I to be clean and to point fingers and write out all these words from myself. Im also just sitting down here, pressing buttons and Scrolling, consuming. And you, whoever is reading this. There’s something we could do.

Since the 1970’s Majuli islander Jadav Payeng has been planting trees in order to save his island. To date he has single handedly planted a forest larger than Central Park NYC. His forest has transformed what was once a barren wasteland, into a lush oasis.

Humble yet passionate and philosophical about his work. Payeng takes us on a journey into his incredible forest.
