Our Beloved Home - Planet Earth

Our Beloved Home - Planet Earth

We live on such a beautiful planet that is Forever Rejuvenating, Regenerating and Changing

Every day, every moment, my eyes fall upon some part of Nature’s beauty. The miracle of the sun rising and setting every day, without me having to do a thing. The miracle of our seasons, so gracefully surrendering into life’s process. The beauty of green trees gently swaying in the wind; the birds gracefully flying overhead or landing on some delicate branch with their tiny feet; the wispy ever-changing clouds moving through a beautiful blue sky; the incredible palette of colors that Nature paints on Her new canvas every day just for me to feel wonder-filled with awe.

Then why is it that we, the human species, treat Her with such disrespect? After all, we return to Her every minute, of every day, for our sustenance and source of wellbeing. Whether it is our food, water, clothing, shelter, in fact for everything. For everything we produce and create has its origins in the natural world.

I am sure everyone is aware of a massive shift taking place on Planet Earth. It has been growing since 2002 and we are now fully into it. Some call it a paradigm shift. Many of the old ways of doing things are no longer working, our business, financial and political structures are no longer supporting the old “you vs. me”, the “war-ing” mentality and profits above all else. The worn-out gamesmanship of ” I win, you lose” is losing its power. Accepted forms and structures of relating are dissolving; relationship with myself; with others; with our daily lives, with Nature. Read the rest of this entry »

Water – Our Life’s Blood

A TASTE OF OUR NEAR FUTURE –

WATER, WATER, WATER! $ $ $ $ $

“The United Nations has been warning for many years that water shortages will become one of the most pressing problems on the planet over the coming decades, with one report estimating that four billion people will be affected by 2050. What is happening in India, which has too many people in places where there is not enough water, is a foretaste of what is to come.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jul/12/india-water-supply-bhopal

Smaller fish tend to produce fewer eggs. They also provide less sustenance for predators – including humans – which could have significant implications for the food chain and ecosystem.

THE KRUGER PARK’S GORGE OF DEATH

Returning dignity and respect to cultures and all species is paramount as we move into this new paradigm forming on Planet Earth.

Al Gore awoke the world to the context of the problem “Global Warming”. And Robert Kennedy is focusing on Water – the very basic element all living things require for survival. I am and have been more about the content. Why the bee, the bird, the fish, the tree matters; why we should care about the species extinction going on at alarming rates; why we should care if our oceans are depleted; our rivers and soils poisoned; why each species is deserving of respect and how our own human footprint is threatening the survival of all. http://www.thetimes.co.za/PrintEdition/News/Article.aspx?id=1028709 Read the rest of this entry »
