All manifestations of Life arise, thrive and dissolve in accordance to their diverse meanings; and the meaning of each manifestation is in relationship to the whole of Life. Thus, a woman manifests in relationship to a particular man and the unique babies they generate, as well as the entire process of Nature. As a woman accepts semen and an egg accepts sperm in the conception of new life, the Earth receives the Sun in warming the seeds hidden beneath Her soils in the conception of plants and animals.   The process of conception of a human being mirrors the conception of life on a planetary and cosmic scale.   These are the facts of life.


The meaning of Life is in relationship to everything else.   Our breathing exists in relationship to the Earth's atmosphere.   We breathe out carbon dioxide while breathing in oxygen.   The green creatures of the Earth; grasses, trees, and plants, meanwhile, breathe in the carbon dioxide we and other mammals breathe out and convert the carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe in.   This process helps to maintain a healthy balance upon the Earth, which we, in our arrogance and lack of connection to Nature, are destroying by releasing more carbon dioxide than a healthy, life-sustaining planet can absorb.


Our alienation is our not being in touch with and living out our meaning in life, which is in relationship to the welfare of the planet in which we participate.   Instead, we have become a cancerous growth.   Cancer by definition is growth gone wild.   This is exactly what human beings have become.   We are normal, healthy cells that have become sick in their growth-gone-wild orientation. Thus the corporations scream: "Growth without end!   There is no end to our profitability.   We shall rule the world."


As the spread of cancer destroys its host's body in taking it over, so also, we are destroying the Earth.   Our skies, our waters, and our lungs are being poisoned by us.   We are cells in the body of the Earth that exhibit the mentality of growth without end.   In so doing, we are destroying ourselves and our cells.   We are cells of the Earth attacking Herself.   As a cancerous growth dies when the human body dies, then so shall humanity"if we do not wake up to what we have become.


If one accepts this premise, then the question becomes, can a cancerous growth awaken to itself and decide to stop?   Perhaps this is the result of a cancerous growth stopping on its own?   Who is to say?   The point is, we do have self-awareness and we can look at the effects of our behavior on our Mother's body, ultimately our body too.   We have the capacity to look beyond self to the greater Self.    We can cease being cancerous cells and become healthy functioning cells in the planetary body.   Indeed, perhaps we can evolve into a more advanced level of being?   Perhaps we can even learn to penetrate the depths of space by going more deeply into ourselves and kindling our power to travel without mechanical technology?   Who is to say what powers lie latent within us?  


Perhaps it is as Christ said to His followers upon His working miracles: "You shall do works greater than these."   Notice that the miracles of Christ did not come from any new fangled technology. No I-pods or computers for Christ.   His power came from within Himself.   He knew with His whole heart and mind that "The Father and I are one." Thus Christ was known as the incarnate Sophia of God.   "Mother and I are also one."   To awaken, simply know your name in the slot where "I" is written in these two identical statements.   Indeed, know your real name as the unspeakable, I AM.


Why unspeakable?   It is simply because as an eye cannot see itself without a mirror to gaze into, the Self, Nature cannot see Her/His Self without the manifest world.


It is to that immanent as well as eminent God who conceived us, not some external mechanized god that we invent, to whom we shall turn.   But, as Christ had to come against the powers of Rome and the organized church of His day, then we shall be confronted by Rome turned Washington DC and its spiritual ruler, Wall Street, and many of the organized churches in this day and age. We, too, will have to overturn the tables of the money changers.   Indeed, the right-winged Christians supporting the elite are nothing more than puppets being manipulated for the profit of the upper classes.   "Divide and conquer!"   The right-winged zealots are nothing more than pawns in an evil scheme.    And the left wingers are nothing more than the other side of the same body. Divide and conquer: "Keep dem dar left leaning, whiny snot noses entertained by CNN and the right winged twinkle toed flat landers stupifid by Fox while we reap havoc upon the planet and enslave them according to OUR will."   This is the hidden motto of the corporate world.
