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 lay my head on his shoulder after I give him a visual on how people treat each other, and I sob. I cry out from deep within my heart an all encompassing sorrow, for I see, and tell of, the great disconnect between people in the world. One after the other ‘scams’ to gain while knowing full well it depletes someone else. This life is not about simply living, but how great we live. Doing well while others suffer is not greatness, it is the most heartbreaking cause of grief … watching people destroy one another, seeing the lack of care.
While grocery shopping, we step aside, move to the edge, wait our turn before we pick up the item we wish to purchase and put it in our cart.
At Farmer’s Market, much the same. We wait for another to decide upon their purchase before we ourselves decide. We smile perhaps, and watch as careful thought goes into every move, every decision.
When walking, we cross the street at green lights, or the walk sign when it is our turn, harmonizing with those in a vehicle.
There are systems in place which enable us all to gain a better flow. When utilized properly, all does indeed move along very well.
I’m not suggesting we are cattle, quite the contrary. We are free and vibrant people, we have an energy that pushes us to be first, and at other times, to be next, or … to relinquish our place altogether, so that another might benefit.
The beauty is in the consistent flow of things which we do together, every day ~ those things which we often are not even noticing, because everything is going so smoothly.
Humanity is fascinating ~ A fine example of what we are, is here for us to see every moment, of every day … if we only choose to see it.
“God created the stars and the heaven for more than the sake of beauty; He gave them to us for interpretation so that we may live a safer more productive life. Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth, by means of his will, is a magus, and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom.” ~ Paracelsus
“God and His hosts could hear the ringing of hammers in the caverns afar and they knew that their long-lost brother Lucifer, once the greatest bearer of light, had turned to the dark and came no longer before the Throne of God. They heard the rumors of the ‘Wonder of the Stones’ and the ‘Glorious Crown of Light’ and the ‘Power of Lucifer’s Minions.’ It came as no surprise when God called Michael, who bears the face of Christ upon his countenance, before his Throne and gave him the Sword of Heaven. It was forged with the Might of God and wielded divine authority. This blade of shining meteoric-iron gave off blinding light and fiery heat that none could withstand. Michael knelt to receive the sword as it sprang from the blinding Throne of God. All the hosts of angels bowed before it and were amazed by its power …
… This was the beginning of the war in heaven that has continued to this very day. All spiritual hierarchies have the possibility of denying God by assuming the role of human desire and falling from their rightful position of grace before God’s Throne. This is what happened with Lucifer when he fell from grace and was held back from going forward in his evolution. Lucifer was jealous that the hierarchies exclusively gave the Throne of God their rapt attention and devotion. He, too, was brilliant and creative and could birth great wonders. He was the brightest and the best. Even Christ considered Lucifer to be like an older brother.”
