I write this with some trepidation, I also write this in acknowledgement of what is truly happening. Right now!!
Everyone has become almost hysterical over the increase of LARGE eartquakes and the flooding and "beast like" storms in France, Germany,Belgium, et
cetera. Despite the mass hysteria, I don't think that most, as of yet, really grasp why all of this is happening. I hope to leave some of you a bit
more aware than you were before you bothered to read this post.
The first thing that one must understand is that the earth is a living organism. Any living organism has a form of consciousness. Albeit maybe not
consciousness in the same form as humans may have, consciousness nonetheless.
Some may raise an eyebrow at that statement. However, who are we to say that the statement is not true? We do not know the perspective of that which,
at least in our dualistic mindset, appears to be exterior of us.
Gaia Theory, which holds that Earth's physical and biological processes are inextricably bound to form a self-regulating system, is more relevant
than ever in light of increasing concerns about global climate change. The Gaian paradigm of Earth as a living system, first articulated by James
Lovelock and Lynn Margulis in the 1970s, has inspired a burgeoning body of researchers working across disciplines that range from physics and biology
to philosophy and politics. Gaia in Turmoil reflects this disciplinary richness and intellectual diversity, with contributions (including essays by
both Lovelock and Margulis) that approach the topic from a wide variety of perspectives, discussing not only Gaian science but also global
environmental problems and Gaian ethics and education.
This is not just some theory being put forth by some "new age" diletante. It is accepted as FACT by a number of physicists and biologists, not even
This is the first thing that one must understand in order to understand what is going on with the earth today.
We must accept that over the decades, we have not being very good stewards of the earth. We, as humanity, do as we please without little to no regard
for anything else. Now, the earth is doing as it wishes without little to no regard. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Now, we must understand another aspect of all of this. Giving that the earth is a living body, sort of speak, it acts as such. You can, in a very real
sense, view towns and cities as being tumors upon the earth. Whether they be benign or malignant has no real significance. The goal of the earth, now
that she has awakened, is making a move to either rid itself of those tumors or transform them.
Both physical and spiritual
Gaia's wisdom can be discerned from two levels: the first, where science concentrates, is her body, her physical, biological, and chemical
operations involving organisms recycling the elements in the biosphere; the second is Gaia's mysterious spiritual life, consciousness diffused
through all her aspects. Her wisdom presupposes as essential the actions of a living being with mind and inherent purpose.
When humanity finally learns the above lesson, then we will see earth work more in concordence with our survival as a species. The earth has already
cut back the production of food and nutrients. Yet, we pretend as if nothing at all has happened. Why?
What do we expect?
The loss of arable land has been caused by a number of factors, many or most of which are tied to human development. The primary causes are
deforestation, overexploitation for fuelwood, overgrazing, agricultural activities and industrialization.
Humanity operates under the supposition that we can continue to abuse and deplete the earth and she will continue to reward us. Not so. Given that the
earth is a living organism, she has no reason to continue to support that which has no regard for her. We don't want a war with the earth, it is one
that we will not and cannot win.
So, that brings us to where we are now. A devastating and tragic earthquake in Haiti. An alarming earthquake in Chile. A devastating storm and flood
in parts of Europe. You see a pattern here? Anyone? You should.
Mother earth has awakened. Have you?
