Shakespeare knew as he said “To thine own-self be true and thou canst be false to no man” And here is Thoreau, “If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.” Doing for somebody just for the sake of “doing the right thing”, when your heart isn’t really in it is actually more “me” or egoic than a non-judgmental walking on. All of us are getting exactly what we want. Whatever needs a person has will be fulfilled by someone who needs to provide them. Needy people can always find someone who “needs” to do for them, who “needs” to sacrifice themselves in that particular manner. The poster is saying, in my not so humble opinion, love yourself; walk a path with heart and that energy will be beneficial to those that are in tune, that are ready for those particular vibrations. Actions based on “this is the way I’m supposed to be” are not full of loving vibrations and at a deep level not nourishing the planet and beings within the planet.
Working in harmony with our higher self [Earth] is our biggest challenge.
Will we be the species that causes earth to resemble the moon?
Don’t think it can’t happen.
This was my solstice gift whilst I was in Salobrena Spain. I took the photo about 8:25am
I’ve just posted an update to my start page, What is Earthen Spirituality? Please have a look at the new content at the bottom.
Some parts of this are stunningly beautiful and others will stop your heart in painful grief.
This is a non-commercial attempt from http://www.sanctuaryasia.com/ to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporates and mindless ‘consumers’ are combining to destroy life on earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network (http://www.sanctuaryasia.com/).
“For millions of years the earth has drifted thought space. Through that time she has taken many forms. Many different forms of life evolved and some still exist and more than could be counted are no more. The time of the human race is but a mere tick in the time of the earth. If by our actions we destroy the fragile conditions needed for our survival. The earth is not the one that will be no more.”
Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned.
Only after the last fish has been caught.
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.”

“Jean, the people of your time, toward the end of this century, will be taking the tiller of the world. Remain always true to yourself, but move ever-upward toward greater consciousness and greater love.”
from the book Evolutionaries by Carter Phipps
Thought for any day
“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those
who watch them without doing anything.” Albert Einstein
“More than just a symbol for the
Galapagos, Lonesome George was a symbol of our global never-ending struggle to
preserve the richness and diversity and beauty of the planet we inherited,” an open letter published by the
International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) says.
BBC News 28 June, 2012 Matt Bardo, Reporter
We did most certainly NOT inherit the Earth. It is this anthropocentric belief, handed
down and bolstered by the Christian Church among others that has become the
root rot which has blinded us to our true nature: one among many, the outer
ring of sensors born out of our higher selves – Gaia, the living, loving Earth.
Growing Up, Falling in Love
“We must fall in love with the Earth — the living, sacred planet, this “dynamic system,” in the words of the Bolivian legislation acknowledging its rights, ‘made up of the undivided community of all living beings, who are all interconnected, interdependent and complementary, sharing a common destiny.’”
This is the future — the only future we have.
Examining just why we do not love the Earth is a major theme of my book.
