Some well thought out ideas and some very good information, thankyou.
The sinus blockage is interesting as I was given spray steroids to clear the sinus drainage from my left ear by my doctor. Chest infections are again
common in so many people right now. I think there can be a problem with sinus infection and the drainage dripping into the lungs? well it was
something like that said by the doctor. So that may be a connection.
On a side, a very old friend of mine was discussing the populations ailments with me today. He said that mother earth was creating allergies in us all
in revenge for the damage we have done to her.
That statement may not be as crazy as you first think.
I thought I would say this and its not entirely what I want to say to that but I dont want to argue
If mother earth was exacting revenge for the damage we are doing to her, it would be quite evident because every trillionaire, oil tycoon, banker,
corrupt politician, paper maker etc would be falling severely ill.
Which is not the case.
I am sure you can respect my viewpoint, and I know that what you posted was a friends viewpoint.
If this mother earth is exacting revenge then she is not as intelligent as people think because she is destroying the people who are unaware instead
of the people who are causing the damage.

Mother earth doesnt take revenge.
she loves all her children, be they oil billionaires or poor people.
they are all her children, so are the animals and the plants.
mother earth is in pain, but can be healed.
if things happen, they will happen because they must.
people are here to learn. sometimes learning can be difficult.
if you see the consequences of your actions, then you can fix them. and understand why they might be wrong.
for example, if eating meat that you dont need to eat gives you heart disease, you learn its not necessary for you to eat so much meat; you cut down;
etc. see above for lions taking what they need only etc.
Or you learn that by you having billions of dollars children will starve; or that in the end this will affect YOU too. YOU will suffer because you
took more than you needed to. and caused the earth itself to suffer.
or you learn that we are all realiant on each other and huamns cannot exist in isolation from animals and nature. if the bees and the birds die, so
will we. if we cut down all the trees and all the koalas die, it will set off a chain reaction that will hurt US. so selfishness is rewarded with
harm to the self.
selflessness brings benefits to the self.
it may SEEM that selfishness leads to big cars, money and a great life.
but this is in the end, will lead to HARM to the self.
once people realize this, they wont want to harm the self; and they will change their lifestyle. because it will help THEM as well as others..
