What is REAL success in life?

We are having to ask ourselves this question anew, now that material wealth has gone out of fashion 🙂

There is a lovely quote which somehow sums it up by Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

 

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

 

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

A human being is part of the whole,
called by us “Universe,”
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings
as something separated from the rest
– a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires and
to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.
~ Albert Einstein~

 

 

 

 


Where does food come from?

Where does water come from?

Where does your house come from?

These days, because of our distorted economic system, we think that food comes from the local store, or if we are pushed we might say “oh, the farmers of course”…

We think that water is supplied by “the water company”…

and that our houses come from “the building company”…

and we think that we have earned the right to those by paying for them with money…

It is because our viewpoint has become distorted.

We have become completely seperated from nature…We are so detached from the very entity which feeds and clothes us, which provides us with water and which raises us from a tiny baby into adulthood. As a mother, how do you think earth might feel, as her children just take what she gives without ever saying “thank you” or having a grateful mind…? Without the reciprocity, Earth might eventually lose the inclination to love and support us…

The farmers who work the land, do not make the vegetables or fruit themselves, they merely assist them to grow.

The water which nature provides for free, is only channelled by a company into your home.

And the building materials for your home were gathered from the soil under your feet, the builders merely assembled them.

Let’s not forget the real origin of all our blessings.

We have not “earned” them, simply by saying “I buy my food and pay for my water bill”.

Don’t we owe nature a big debt?

We should treat her with deepest respect and a grateful mind.


 

I am wondering…Specifically, what is the energy of love …?

Here’s what I think…so let me know what you think about it through comments:)

Although love can be expressed in many different ways, its energy is all the same. That is –  life force. Loving people are lively and a loving society is full of vitality. Love is the energy that runs the Universe. It is the fundamental power that makes the very core of all things. The first stage of love is the love between man and woman, new lives are born out of that love. Love is the energy that creates such lives.

 Secondarily, if love is directed toward people, not only between a man and a woman, the love brings about the development of consciousness. That is – people don’t only live by human instinct but develop their inclination to the path of evolution. As people come to know what they should do on the stage of the “Earth”, they will be newly born as conscious entities apart from  just being natural beings.

 Next, when love is exalted to the dimension of love for nature, people become aware not just of visible lives but of invisible ones. If you feel like saying hello to animals and plants, you have already begun to believe in invisible beings 🙂

 If you feel the love of plants that is full of pure love, you will become conscious of the circulation system of the Earth and will be in accord with family members of the living entity, the Earth.

 Next comes the love for “Heaven” – not in a christian sense, but in the sense which includes the earth and it’s surroundings – seeing the earth and yuourself as a part of something higher. You will enter the stage where you realize why you were born on the Earth and what you have to do on the Earth. Then you will finally develop the consciousness about the Universe and begin to seriously think about the question “Who am I?.” Your love is then promoted to the level of the Universe.

Like this, love may exist in many different levels, but we can say it is all the same in the characteristic that the energy called love creates new life force.

So I wonder…. If the consciousness of humanity grows and their love increases, can we change the situation of the upcoming crisis?

I guess the land cannot be restored even if you realize the value of a land after we have ruined it. I think we will have to go through what we should, but I believe that the intensity of the crisis can be decreased. If many people recognize and love the Earth as a living entity, they will be able to perceive the signals of the Earth. When they can converse with the Earth, they will be able to literally discuss the situations with the Earth. They will be able to evacuate in advance because they can receive information about the impending volcanic eruption.  For instance,  if you had to listen to the Earth right now, what do you think the it would say? It could be a predictable answer…that since the balance and harmony of its circulation system are broken, it would moan because of its serious illness –  it can hardly control the system anymore, so global warming and abnormal weather conditions come about

 – What can we do for the Mother Earth who moans with serious illness?

At first, we should sincerely feel sorry about  Mother Earth who has almost died because of her children who lack good sense and we should apologize to her. And then, we should think about how to cure her.  Growing life through securing farming or forests can be one of the healing methods for the Earth.

 If you put things into action one by one in this way with your concern and stir up your interest and love for the Earth and living things, that will be a solution. Love may sound unreal, but it is a very real method. In order to overcome the present crisis, humankind must fall in love with the Earth. It is love.

If we get to understand and love the earth sincerely, and don’t think only about  survival because of fear, the energy of the love will make us act unconsciously and that will make everything grow. If the actions and minds of such love are continued, the effects will spread like dominoes and will become a part of the entire consciousness of humankind and the Earth would cease its violent self-cleansing. Furthermore, the power of such love will be the source from which humankind will be born as the heroes of the new age.

I believe Earth is waiting for us to wake up…

From now on, let’s offer our sincere love to Mother Earth.


 


I would like to appeal to our survival instinct for a moment…

Looking at earth’s situation from another angle, we should be concerned about our future survival, due to our parasitc behaviour!

Inspite of having the highest level of intelligence on the planet – contrary to being the earth’s caretakers, we have rather abused the earth and we have behaved like a disease or a parasitic infection.

We have introduced toxins and distress to earth, instead of benefits

We have taken away from, rather than added to earth with our presence

and despite obvious consequequences to our behaviour, we have not changed our ways enough to make a difference to earth’s health yet.

This is why our existence on earth in in danger…

If an animal or ourselves discover parasites living on or in our bodies that harm us, we generally take action against those organims. It’s nothing personal against the parasite. Even though we know the parasites have a desire to live, we would still take action, if they were harming us.  There are various ways to get rid of parasites, as nature shows us…

There is the…eh…Physcial destruction method… 🙂

…crushing one’s parasites…

 

 

Taking a bath in mud

(…Suffocating one’s parasites with mud…)

 

Taking a bath or shower in water

(…drowning or washing away one’s parasites…)

Using one parasite to get rid of another

(…using an assassin…)

Tickbirds eat ticks off the big game, who sit patiently still while their parasites are removed…

Earth is also a living organism and we are behaving like earth’s parasites, but we are choosing to be like that…we not not have to live this way… we can change, but we have to do it quickly…there is no time!

I like this analogy from “Dirt: The Movie”. Please have look…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eC5tZlc_1V8

We better hope that a “United Organization of Organisms” isn’t organised by earth’s other inhabitants anytime soon! After all, we have been abusing them all for a long long time…

If the plants animals and other organisms who share earth with us could choose…I think we would definatley be voted out, and we would likely get evicted from Earth by nature’s own special methods…

The Physical destruction method (earthquakes)

…crushing one’s parasites…

 

Taking a bath in mud

(…Suffocating one’s parasites with mud…)

 

Taking a bath or shower in water

(…drowing or washing away one’s parasites…)

 

Using one parasite to get rid of another

(…hiring an assassin…)

 

In the case of diseases, bacteria or viruses use the host for their food and reproduction, before poinsoning or destroying the host….sound familiar?

Human population representation

 

 Perhaps there are even other methods which I haven’t thought of here…

So, I really hope that we come to see how our behavior has influened this beautiful planet negatively, and that we choose to change our culture very quickly.

By doing so, we might avert or lessen some of the more drastic cleaning processing which have already been scheduled.

Mother Earth is a mother, after all – and mothers have an enormous capacity for forgiveness

This is one of those songs which just says it all…

The Rape of the World

Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the wold
This the beginning of the end
This the most heinous of crimes
This the deadliest of sins
The greatest violation of all time
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world

You’ve seen her stripped mined
You’ve heard of bombs exploded underground
You know the sun shines
Hotter than ever before
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world

Some claim to have crowned her
A queen
With cities of concrete and steel
But there is no glory no honor
In what results
From the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world

She has been clear-cut
She has been dumped on
She has been poisoned and beaten up
And we have been witness
To the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the world

If you look you’ll see it with your own eyes
If you listen you will hear her cries
If you care you will stand and testify
And stop the rape of the world
Stop the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all


 

 

Each person who realizes the truth about how to live well should share those methods as much as they can to others, because the change of consciousness is the very thing which can prevent even worse scenarios in the next few years. You can change your cultures into one which can be accepted by nature and the universe.

Find the ways of living in eco-friendly communities, taking direct actions immediately such as reducing or eliminating your consumption of meat and try to understand the bigger picture of why these disasters have happened and what the responsibility of human beings are.

The faster we can awaken all human beings to the reality and come to live as part of nature, the more lives we can save in the near future. People who have transformed themselves into the new humankind will be able to survive. Earth can be reborn as a new Earth, with a new type of human being living on her land!

 

So, what do we have to do to change the future prospects of our world? How can we find our happy story instead of a tragic ending…?

The basic thing which the universe wants human beings living on earth to change, is their consciousness. If people become aware of themselves as a part of nature, rather than maintaining that nature is just there for your convenience, it would be the direction to which the universe wants you to move. The basic  principle is that of taking responsibility.

Having responsibility is the only way to gain a proper concept of the depth and width of the universe. It means, taking responsibility for all factors regarding your own lives – not blaming others for one’s own difficulties, making the effort to understand what the world needs from you. But responsibility, when it extends its capacity, asks you to see all the world’s problems as one’s own problems. It means thinking and acting as if one is responsible for the Earth. The first step is expanding one’s care boundary to include other people, all plants and animals and the Earth itself. Later on it is possible to have that type of relationship with the whole universe…

However, even thinking and acting well in the world is not enough either. If you know something which could save others around you, you should find the way to gently open their minds to the reality. Spreading the information about how we have been damaging nature and should stop, or letting others know how to live well too, becomes one’s responsibility when you know the real situation.

Specifically, certain aspects of culture which damage the environment and disrespect nature should be left behind as the habits of the old humankind. All aspects of human culture should be reviewed and examined for their relevance and desirability, for example – burial practices, attitudes to eating meat, hunting and poaching; how to build your houses and clothe yourselves in a way which does not cause harm to the world. All of these can be done is a beautiful, nature-friendly and sustainable manner which respects nature. If nature lives well, so do human beings. At some point, people just forgot that nature has provided everything forus to live until now.

Looking at the bigger picture… here are some specific things which people should try to change as soon as possible.

Deforestation should stop immediately, or all hope will be lost. Related to that, eating meat is very karmic…meat farming and also poaching and hunting should be avoided  because of Earth’s many endangered species of flora and fauna. Due to the deforestation there has been a huge loss of biodiversity. The answer is to find a way of living a natural life … It is necessary instead for people to learn how to plant perma culture forests, which create viable ecosystems and provide food, and this solution is the way to improve soil and hold the topsoil in place. It also enriches itself and begins providing its own fertilizer and these kinds of sustainable farming methods which respect nature and the environment will be the only ones existing in the future.

Also, people should make efforts to plant trees as a matter of habit, as they are key in attracting ecosystems to establish and they also attract rainfall by their very existence.

The Future world which the Earth would all like to see, is one where all creatures live in harmony under the protection of human beings. Under that protection, nature can reveal all of its secrets and beauty to human beings, whose eyes would have opened.

In the current situation, almost no-one knows the true beauty of Earth’s nature. It is primarily a matter of conciousness…


 

 We have been breaking the law…

Maybe we are not breaking the laws that human beings have made, but we are certainly

breaking the laws of the universe, of which our earth is a part…

breaking the laws of nature which is also a part of the universe,

breaking the laws which human beings are supposed to follow from the point of view of the universe,

and we still wonder…

Why is it all going so wrong for us?

The human being is a microcosm of the universe and is also subject to the rules of the Universe. Most people are somewhat aware that the disasters we have been experiencing are something to do with nature trying to keep the balance. 

 We have broken many laws up until now, but luckily for us, the universe is actually more patient than a human being is, so we have been allowed to continue to develop in this direction until now… I don’t believe that our creator would destroy the earth that easily. Earth is a valuable planet. Disasters and convulsions of nature also come to cultivate human-beings, and they probably would not come so seriously that the earth itself ends. I think that for the earth to perish, material civilization of the earth would have to be developed so much to the extent that the spiritual development of the earth becomes impossible.

However, problems such as diseases like mad cow disease and AIDS, tremendous earthquakes and abnormal weather patterns are going to happen continuously while when human beings are confused with the fundamental things.

The fundamental way of the world, is that everything should be in its place and nothing should be there if it is not in it’s proper place. The right ways and rules for living is a fundamental element of the Universe, and to keep these fundamental elements is a basic obligation for all beings who are composing the Universe. Some human beings have completely ignored the laws of nature, and as such there will be consequences…

The earth is self-observing and is able to arrange itself to cope automatically when sudden changes appear, such as the sudden industrialization of the world caused by human’s focus on the material world. The human body also operates automatically… from the sensory functions to autonomous function; like wearing more clothes when it is cold and taking them off when it is warm. If the rules are broken, there are penalties like flu or disease. Or a response like making a fever to heal a disease.

In the future, the self-preservation of the Earth with regard to human’s abuse and disruption will possibly respond in much worse ways that what we are currently experiencing …

We should  change our ways as soon as possible and admit that we were wrong to make our sentence lighter…

or

We can just keep going and wait and see what will happen.

I vote for the former
