What is the Pledge
To make the Pledge is the next step on from agreeing with Life First. It is to make a commitment to put Life First – before profit, power and personal agenda, as best we can in our every day lives. It is a commitment to Life and our future generations.
Voicing your agreement with what the CFM stands for and spreading the word about the movement’s existence are both important undertakings, AND… the main objective of the movement is to create real, tangible changes in the way we go about our daily lives on this planet – changes that will help safeguard the continuation of life.
The pace and depth to which we implement the Children’s Fire is a choice that we all need to take individually – and, it’s a choice that affects the world we live in, moment by moment, for you, me, our children and our children’s children.
The Need to Pledge
There is an increasingly obvious need for a peaceful, democratic and life-honouring way forward that will provide a brighter legacy for our future generations.
When a child dies every 5 seconds due to poverty and malnutrition (to name but one symptom of a clearly out of balance system) isn’t it a no-brainer that we need to make fundamental changes to how we humans go about our business – to place the ethic of Life First at the very heart of all that we do?
More and more people are now waking up to a world where the needs of the many are so often outweighed by the short-term benefits of the few – that we are becoming the unwitting slaves to a system so unstable and misguided that it is destroying the environment we depend upon.
How do I make the Pledge?
On one level, making the Pledge is as simple as making an agreement with yourself that you will do your best to live by the ethic of Life First.
Making the Pledge is going to be a unique experience for everyone – we all have our preferred methods of learning and we’ve all been shaped by a rich diversity of life experiences. One thing is for sure, if you make the pledge there’s no need to go it alone as the people of this movement can be with you all the way.
As mentioned above you can make the pledge on your own, which is fine. And, we would strongly urge you to consider becoming a CFM Community Member where you can be part of a wider collaborative journey with supportive individuals of like mind.
