Earth day is every day. I pledge to reduce my plastic consumption to pay attention to which products produce more waste and invest in food and products that pollute less. That plastic is going to some body of water or land and harming our 🌎so avoiding it is vital right now. I will support companies and farmers by buying products without plastic as much as I can and bringing power to where I place my energy. I will never buy plastic forks or utensils or disposable anything. I will carry with me a water bottle and mug or will ask for one instead of using straws and disposable cups. I will carry my bag to the grocery . I will compost. I will stick to it . #Mitakuyeoyasin
In silence inside
I sit and listen as the debris
carrier picks up the bins outside,
I am grateful for this person.
I hope this debris is properly disposed
and not dropped in the ocean
of waste that we’ve already created.
I thought of burning everything
but what does that do to our air?
It seems the only solution is to use less
and to be very choosy about purchases.
Today is another day to earn wages
to be mathematical, to be alert of deals
which could land that big job.
Life is good.
My ‘new to me’ stationary bike
has helped start my day.
It will do so many days to come
and life will continue.
Technology … it is breathed into life on the planet, everyone’s heads swell with it, and it grows to the point it begins to destroy the world. We’ve seen entire civilizations disappear from the earth, archaeology shows us this evidence.
Even if we go to war and there is much destruction, do you supposed anything will happen to CERN, or any of the other great technological advancements made? No, probably nothing will happen to them, and when the dust settles and people who remain forget about the hole blown in the atmospheric shield, it will still be there, in full operation, steered by those who know of the ‘secrets’.
When the population diminishes and these ‘important’ figures still smash particles of the universe, seeking multiverses, bending time, sending to and fro this or that, and as they continue to spray the skies with their poison and claim ownership of the rain they produce by doing so, will the common person forget?
At some point the planet itself must rebel against these trespasses, these advances of intelligence must be dismantled in order to protect life that this world alone (as far as we know, after all this time) can give to us.
Through all the scientific studies of the universe and beyond, ‘professionals’ cannot locate another planet that will support life as we know it (at least they have not announced there is, if they’ve found one). Yet here we are, destroying the only life source we have.
Is there intelligence on this planet? Or just a feeble replica?
You’re an addiction that must be dropped, forgotten and left behind. You’ve embedded yourself so far into the psyche of humanity.
New beginnings are on the horizon, even while you plan on taking over completely. Your grip is loosening, even while you feel it tighten. Birthing in the minds of people are ideas and methods for eliminating this feeding you have been doing, this ruining of connection, even as you ‘sell’ your point on providing ‘more’ connection.
You are the epitome of a scam artist, and you are seen.
For so long you have been strong. It may seem as though the weight is immense, you may be feeling tired, unsure of how much longer you can stand firm in the winds of life.
This Universe is vast.
At times normal everyday occurrences may seem huge, and a heaviness may settle over all that is in daily life. Go beyond that, if even for a moment, and think of the larger picture.
Life in this world creates the outer which we see, and also that which we do not see. Without we, there would be no-thing.
Relax into this experience, transform those emotions that have been bound in you, allow a sweet vulnerability which accepts assistance from brothers, and from sisters, from your city or town, your state, your country, and from the world.
We are in this together. We can accept the bigger picture, or we can just allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by a sense of smallness and helplessness.
The White Rhino was recently announced to be extinct, and more recently the Eastern Puma … gone forever. Many more will begin to leave this planet as well, with a rapidity which will spin our minds. The whales of the sea are dying along with all of the other life that dwells there.
When will humanity change their destructive ways and stop being so damn greedy?
The 50-foot whale, constructed from waste such as bags, containers and bottles, was created by environmental NGO Greenpeace Philippines as part of efforts to encourage the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to address the problem of plastic pollution.
This may be a sculpture to help bring awareness to this dire issue, but it does not lessen the travesty being wrought upon all life through these destructive habits we’ve adopted world wide.
I drove by a cow farm and saw a bunch of calves, they were adorable. I wondered if any of them were male, as I remembered videos I saw of the newborn males being roughly handled and sent for slaughter. I thought of how the farmer values heifers for their milk and ability to birth more calves.
I then thought of humanity, and how they value females compared to males, saddened at the obvious.
My mind returned to the male calves, so terrified as they were brutalized in their young lives.
Then I remembered how I was tricked into eating veal nearly 32 years ago, still quite pissed about it.
I looked to my dashboard at the clock. 11:11, new beginnings. Let it be soon.
