Sandy recently submerged a large part of the East Coast. My thoughts and healing energy go out to friends, everyone in chaos. To all you riders of the storm, please, tell us your stories, eventually enough of us will hear and learn that we cannot continue this devastating course. Critical mass counts and sooner is way better than later.
So - how badass does nature have to act to get our attention?
Global warming accelerates storm activity. Monocrops breed disease. GMOs are bad for soils, rats and humans. Human activity, much of it aimed for profit over else, has created a madness we have accepted as "reality." But this superimposed manmade reality composed of extractive economics, protecting the wealth of the few while hurting the many maintaining an "us/them and it" way of thinking; that "reality" is the false real. We've been hoodwinked, bigtime!!
Bigger real- we are in a relationship with all other humans, with other species, with ecosystems and the biosphere. We are connected.
Our bodies have a cellular intimacy with natural, real, whole, unpoisoned food. We evolved together. This plays a part in why some people are better able to digest certain foods better than others.
(Acid reflux, allergies, IBS and other digestive issues have a relationship to GMOs- just saying)
Like hummingbirds and deep throated blossoms, groomer fish and sharks, we are in an co-creative relationship with the natural world, we evolved together. Instead of fearing, attacking, attempting to control and dominate, it is time we figured out how to dance.
Nature isn't the enemy, it is the animated life force, the spark's manifestation. To have senses and feel love, to make time meaningful, to wonder and find the potential we were gifted at birth, this is organic wisdom. Life is a gift. The gift is packaged by nature, to be respected, enjoyed and cherished.
