Strange Times

It's been a strange week, what with birds falling from the sky in so many places and dead fishes washing ashore on various continents. We really must become clear about how we and the earth are like mirrors for each other. If we have a high cancer rate, it is reflected in our being a cancer upon the earth.

Something tells me that if we start treating the earth as our bodies - and our bodies as the earth - we can somehow turn it all around. Can we do this? Can we care for ourselves fully? Can we care for our planet fully?

None of this is easy. It's so much easier to go the easy route. But that's actually a lie. It's so much easier to do what's needed. But there's only one way to find out the truth in that statement.

And to find this out, we must find the truth of what's really needed and act upon it.
