All that I am comes from the interaction of the Suns light and warmth withthe substance of Earth, upon this planets surface....
I am born of woman, as a mammal, as are many, many creatures on this earth. All of us are.
'Civilised' Mankind is THE ONLY CREATURE known to organise to consciously harm our own children, our brothers and our sisters, and the children of life in general, on a massive scale. Such a scale as to impinge on the 'rights' of others to live as nature intended.
This is born of an arrogance that borders on psychopathy .... and I am understating the facts.....
We are born of this earth, of this place, of the rivers, the plains, the mountains, the seas...
It is our natural home. There is no other.
Thus our inability to interact with that nature as it is, to gently adapt to it's bounty is our responsibility, and ours alone.
All children are born expecting the breast, expecting the patterns of night and day, expecting respect and time to learn, expecting oxygen and water, expecting the presence of nature all around us, expecting to be enthralled by its beauty and to avail fully of its bounty, in balance - that is our evolved state on this Earth.
I connect to the spirit of life, which is to say I am deeply, profoundly and utterly grateful for all that sustains and nourishes me, all the oxygen, the water, the plants that I have to sustain me, and especially my body in which I live and experience this abundance, knowing full well that I have not done anything to create this. I can only marvel at the sheer wonder of it.
My life has been harsh. I have been abused in many cruel and devastating ways for most of my childhood. I survived, and recovered my soul. That is my gift to myself, that I give myself my life again. And who stood by me in all this?
The gift of life as I feel it in my very being. And a few, all too few people. Even within my own family, too few.
And today who stands beside the children of Iraq and Afghanistan? Too few. Most are too worried about the chimera of how to sustain the comfort that they now are addicited to, and are more concerned with global warming than global warring, and scuttle, frightened for their own arses, from ideology to religion to science fiction.
They have all missed the nature of the gift. They have abandoned their own children.
Ask yourself, who made your eye and you brain to interpret what the eye percieves?
Earth did. THAT IS FACT.
Faith says Allah or God or Jehovah or Buddah or Krisna or some other invention of human mind.
Faith ignores the gift. Humiliates the gift by attributing it to something outside EARTH.
I respect that gift, and bless all that is of nature, as the starting point to every breath I take.
I long to see again a culture of humanity that reflects how I feel. To live at home with my brothers and sisters, at peace (barring shit happens, of course : weather, volcanoes, tidal waves, typhoons and my own clumsiness).
Children have the right (not a privilege, a right) to have their natural, innate expectations met - that is the basis for all life on Earth.
The arrogance of 'civilised' mankind to assume that they are the most intelligent creature on Earth, (it used to be WHITES are MORE INTELLIGENT THAN BLACKS, MEN MORE INTELLIGENT THAN WOMEN...) and to further assume the right to manipulate and harm others for their own end is the ugliest of all that exists on this Earth.
Creating a sustainable future so that all become christian, or muslim, or jew or anything else of similar ilk is in and of itself a part of that arrogance, that ugliness....
A personal faith is something an indiviual may well live by. And that is as far as it should go.
And if that faith is by indoctrination, then it is no faith at all but a prison. And it is the indoctrinates who destroy what they cannot accept or control, in life.
These are my words, of my soul, of my life thus far.
I strongly suggest that all read "SHOCK DOCTRINE" by Naomi Klien and "Underground History of Education" by John Taylor Gatto.
There is evil amongst us, it is planned and it is the product of rational thought processes of people who are divorced from the great gifting that is life. It is enabled by the fear and complicity of those who are it's fuel and for the most part it's canon fodder.
Denial is always a choice.
Do what you love, it's your gift to universe
