A Peaceful Sadness
Here ! Now ! This precise instant ! I am sitting in the dim morning light. The birds are calling, the air is cool, and a green floating banquet for the eyes bedecks the trees. I am at peace. Even though I know the planet is dying and the species I am a member of is committing suicide. Even though my dear friends, the trees, will soon probably be slowly dying with many others on the planet. The big ones almost for sure. Goodbye towering oaks. I may soon see you fall.
I have suffered thinking about it. But it is not necessary to suffer. To win our souls back the Earth Mother quietly bears our disobedience. We are her naughty children and have caused her to feel the agony of much of the life of her cells dying on-her/in-her... her big beautiful round incredibleness. She will recover in good time. And our souls as well.
With faith in God, and the realization of this as a divine drama with an ultimate happy ending, my heart is finding peace. I have fought the good fight and will continue on with it. I have done what I could. My heart is free.
Ultimately it does not matter which way it goes. Millions could starve from the heat and drought and lack of food resulting, in the next decade. And I could easily be among them. Already my soul is letting go a bit and imagining reincarnation on a sane world. My tour of duty here will be over at some point. I will not always be a member of a suiciding species. And I continue to write, for the younger generation, some of whom may live through this.
