Mother Earth writes a letter to humanity - each of us - to express her feelings and point of view on how we have treated her. She does not feel valued, loved and cared for. But no one who experiences abuse at the hands of another feels valued. right? In her own words, 'Know that my relationship with each of you is personal. And, as such, I will experience you exactly as you are. I will either benefit from your expression and the way you live. Or I will suffer because if it.'
Always remember when you direct hate and judgment at someone that our world does not categorise them.
This year's theme for Reconciliation Week in my homeland of Australia is 'Be Brave, Make Change!' This is wise as it takes far more courage to love where there is hurt, than to cling to that hurt as a source of division. This is true for us as a nation, and for each of us in our individual lives. And in terms of our relationship with ourselves and others. It is not love standing in the way of reconciliation. In a human experience, love knows it can't balk at anything. That's why it is so courageous. To us all, love says, 'I am ready when you are!' This piece was first posted on the 26th of January 2018. What a four years it has been for life. It is her we should love for, more than anything else. For life and our sacred mother do not take sides. As she said to me once in Central Australia - 'Why can't we just love!?'
If our world is sick, it is because we make it so. Whenever a human being chooses a course of action and expression that prioritises them, as an individual, over the balance of life itself, life must suffer. Unfortunately for life, it is the default setting of the high income world to place little to no restrictions on the things we do and the lifestyles we create - collectively speaking, of course - all while making declarations of our great love for humanity and the earth on boastful social media posts.
