THE MIDDLE EAST RUNS OUT OF WATER

Wednesday, 13 May 2015

A ranking Iranian political figure, Issa Kalantari, recently warned that past mistakes leave Iran with water supplies so insufficient that up to 70 percent, or 55 million out of 78 million Iranians, would be forced to abandon their native country for parts unknown.

Many facts buttress Kalantari's apocalyptic prediction:

*Once lauded in poetry, Lake Urmia, the Middle East's largest lake, has lost 95 percent of its water since 1996, going from 31 billion cubic meters to 1.5 billion.

*What the Seine is to Paris, the Zayanderud was to Isfahan - except the latter went bone-dry in 2010.

They don't belong here. They were brought to us by some unfortunate circumstances - an unhappy childhood, a personal weakness, a society that's sick. They're polluting the system, like a harmful bacteria or virus, and we want all trace of them eliminated immediately.

What if that premise is wrong?

I've been working with people as a teacher, a marriage and family therapist, and a life coach for 35 years now. I started with that premise of problems as aberrations - the "disease model" of psychology. I don't buy it anymore.

Let's explore a different premise, and see where it takes us.  The explorations starts with asking certain questions.
