Mankind sees himself as outside of nature and able to control it – top of the tree! He thinks he is the boss and he is destroying vast swathes of Mother Earth and polluting even more. He contaminates without a single thought, the very air that he breathes. So long as there is profit in it, he will do it.
Humans are just an infinitely small strand in a grandiose tapestry of life on this planet. It has a delicate balance and man is severely ‘out of balance’.
If we are to change this planet and the life of all of its creatures for the better, we MUST change our ways. Mankind must learn to co-exist with not dominate other creatures and life forms. Not because he has to, but because he WANTS TO! In short he must have a change of heart.
I use the masculine here but all of mankind must change and that includes everyone. I see man but I don’t see anywhere near enough KIND. ManKind it isn’t.
Here is some food for thought. If swaggering leaders want to go to war – let them go – alone. Put the leaders in a room and lock them in until they sort it out. Let no man take up arms of any kind against man woman child or creature. His respect must be for all life on the planet. Anyone who takes up a gun to use on another is ‘out of balance’ with the Universe itself.
Why do we have Death Dealers on the planet? Arms manufacturers dealing in death and maiming of women & children for profit. If you want to know the real reason why wars are fought in the 21st Century – just follow the money. See who is making a profit -arms dealers, giant corporations and banks. The people are the cannon fodder. Expendable. So ask yourself why it is we as a race allow people to make guns, bullets, shells, bombs, missiles and tanks? Why do religions have Holy Wars? because religion is stupid and part of the state.
If mankind is ever to evolve and grow spiritually we must end the lust for weapons and war and greed and domination. We must learn to live in peace. We must all, never want to take up arms again and never march to a war to kill people we don’t even know.
The people have the power really. If enough people say enough is enough, it will be so.
Tomorrow: What should we be teaching our kids – and whose news are you watching?
