I have logger friends who no longer speak to me. They think I’m a tree hugging nut. They are adamant about the trees being ‘renewable resources’. My questions to them is:
“Out of all the trees you have cut down how many have you planted to take their place?” Before you answer with, That is someone else’s department … another question I have is: “Have you held that ‘other department’ accountable to do their part?” and “Do you care that they have not?”
Anger abounds from a man who is trying to feed his family, he may think that tree lovers are trying to take away his livelihood, and this simply is not the case.
The trees are our next breath. If they are not replenished in a manner that is sustainablefor the planet, then we are killing ourselves, and those we claim to love. This is the real issue.
I love a campfire, roasting marshmallows, and the woods as much as the next person. I love having wood to burn in my fireplace in the winter, however, balance is needed, and it is obvious, there is none.
Rather than warring with each other, we ought to work together … different aspects of the whole, to ensure that what we do is balanced and good for all.
Life does not come about by promoting death. As we butcher our way through animals and trees, as the waters and land are poisoned, we essentially are murdering each other, and ourselves.
OM or AUM is the sound of the Universe – the sound of divine – its a powerful vibration – 432Hz is the vibrational frequency of nature around us. And when you combine them both, magic happens. The entire experience becomes divine, and it can help in our connection with the ONE.
YES to adding my voice, my energy and my intention to the turning back towards nature
YES to living into the consciousness of a restorer species
YES to my part in the replenishment of the forests
YES to calling all women to explore who and what we are when we gather on behalf of life
YES to moving beyond fear and limitation
YES to astonishing ourselves
YES to each other, to life, to love, to our collective emergence
Some feel that this is it. Once this life ends, we either move on to heaven or hell, one shot at it. What if this is all wrong? What if it is only a control mechanism to keep people subservient? What if we all really are equal, and the deeds we do, and the acts we perform, will be the determining factor on what remains upon our return to this beautiful planet?
Let us say, for a moment, that this is not all there is. That you will return again to this planet for another life. Not because you are being punished, but because the task is not complete … the task of cleaning up and beautifying this earth for all.
Greed and chaos run rampant. Minds have been manipulated into the ‘consumption’ way of living, many have been made to believe that more is better. So they do whatever it takes to gain it, and they forget about the backs they have marched over to get where they are, those that they have left behind while pursuing their addiction to things. I do not for a moment believe it is anyone’s fault, per se, instead I view it as an illness … much like gambling, drinking, or drugs, or any other addictions one might think of. This illness is fostered by those who wish to fill their pockets. Look at the billboards advertising powerball and the ‘potential’ for winning. See the people pour their savings into this lure, many losing their homes.
Tomorrow will come. You might return for another life. Would you like to return to green pastures and forests, alive with the music of joy? … Fresh running streams and rivers that you can actually drink from? Would you like to see people who are not afraid to reach for one another, without the potential for harm?
Only you have the power to change your part in this path. Only you can control the waves you leave in your wake. Every action you take affects all life in your path. You may not see it, or even be aware of it, however the ripple effect of your life is powerful, and you just may feel the affect of it should you return.
This is what is meant by karma. Not as punishment, but as in creating that which you will return to, should you choose to believe this is possible, should you choose to plan for it. What harm can building a more peaceful world do? For even should you believe you will not be back, your children, grandchildren and others will follow in footsteps left behind.
There are many who fight so hard against the truth because they absolutely do not want to believe it is possible. In the backs of their minds it is there, and they see it, yet they deny it because it is scary … so it continues.
These situations must be addressed. The corporate poisoners must be stopped. The only way to begin is to acknowledge the sinister methods in which they operate. Once this acknowledgement occurs, each step toward dismantling it will present itself.
Do not get lost in the story of ‘we can’t do anything about it now’. We absolutely can do something about it, once we look it square in the face and say, “I see what you are doing, and it is no longer going to be tolerated.”
Step out of denial, if not for yourself, for the children.
Money really isn’t the issue people have when it comes to the elimination of evil. The real issue is our habit of participation. When we take our attention back from it, when we stop participating in it, when we make cleaner and more sustainable choices, the empire which is destroying the world will fall.
The key is to stop being defensive … and step over to offense. This does not mean to wage war, it actually means to stop participating in war … this war that the destroyer has us fighting.
