For too long we have placed our faith in experts instead of experiencing life with our guts. Tell this to the fish in the midwest that are frying due to abnormal heat. Meanwhile listen to your senses as you gaze into the barren landscape that mirrors the barrenness of your rational mind. Rational...roll the term over your tongue, look at it....ration-al....rationed.....limited....not understanding the relationship of the parts to the whole and the notion that the whole is in every part.
We are creating a barren planet as a reflection of our conditioned minds that are similarly barren. We argue this and that theory, theology and philosophy while we fry ourselves and the planet. Republican or Democrat? Left or Right? Male or Female? When do we awaken to ourselves and the Other as our mirror. The planet will only heal as we heal. Why are we in this mess? It is because we live in the same relationship with Nature as a fetus lives with his mother. The Hindus knew in one of the Upanishads where it is written:
"It is above
It is below
It is, in fact this entire world
When one knows this one knows bliss in the self
and in all worlds is free."
But, when we look out at the world we see resources, and we manipulate those resources for within ourselves we are dead. We don't see a living, breathing and intelligent Being, for we are so chopped up, rationed, that we have killed ourselves. This is what happens we are chopped up or rationed.
Or do you continue to say there is no global warming. If you do, please feel free to tap on the following url. While you debate this issue with yourself, or even me, go to the midwest and tell the fish what you think. Personally I won't argue with you. Let the fish tell you what to think! Or, are you able to listen?
