I have always been concerned about the planet and other life forms. In my younger days I was ridiculed and criticized for this. Not by thinking people though! When I was in grade seven (1962) we were asked to write an essay on our greatest wish . I wrote that I wished people would care more about the environment than money. The head master wrote “Good girl” on my essay but I was embarrassed and wished I hadn’t written it.!
In the 1970’s as well as being in Women’s Liberation I was in Animal Liberation and Greenpeace and later in Trees for life. Non of these organisations appear to be coming from integrity these days. This is a broad generalisation and I apologise to those involved that really care but it seems to me that these organisations are now populated and run by people who think they are being trendy. Plus they are controlled by ridiculous rules and regulations. – I will give a brief example using Trees for Life – This century we were told to remove all non indigenous species of plant or animal- Strangely enough it didn’t included non indigenous humans? Yet humans, via mining; real estate development; road kill; pest? control; destroy more wild life and flora than cats. (Real estate companies destroy heritage bushland and pay the fines because they make much more that the fines from subdividing the land) – oops back to example –Indigenous creepers were killing native trees and plants: They were not allowed to be removed because they were indigenous. Locally trees were removed because they were not indigenous to this area (They were indigenous to South Australia?). Leaving no trees at all ?
Anyway; why I am writing this, is that it is my bucket list to help heal the planet!
Although I know that I genuinely communicate with people no longer in this reality I do not believe there is a god Nor do I believe in karma. I studied world religion (as an elective at teachers college) and karma means work. If we wait for what we in the west call karma or god we will not attempt to change things ourselves!
I do what I can in the microcosm and ask those who wish, to please join me in sending healing to our planet. I do believe our thoughts go somewhere; and our intent has power.
Although I “work” as a solitary witch these days, I have trained would be witches and have at least an inkling as to how we create reality. From just a psychological point of view the more people that believe something, the greater the chance of it happening.
I believe that it would be better for the planet and other life forms if there were less humans. I understand the planet could support all humans if things were set up differently but what about the other life forms?
A friend of my youngest granddaughter wrote a paper proposing that zero population growth (for humans) would heal the planet’s ecology but she also noted that it was socially taboo. This just means one child per couple. (Not no children; as some seem to think)
Also the meat industry is set up with factory farming and mass slaughtering because of the huge number of humans to feed.
Those of you that wish, please join me in my daily affirmations.
Healing to Mother Earth
Zero population growth for homo sapiens until the planet’s ecology has healed.
( According to Green Peace – in 1970s – humans have already destroyed the planet beyond repair. I choose not to believe this!)
All laboratory animals are free, healthy, happy, fulfilled; laboratory use of animals abolished
All pets are healthy, happy and loved and respected by their humans
I also say the following affirmations but I do not expect others to join me. My intent is not to put farmers out of a lively hood (My Dad’s family were farmers – the people who own the house next door to me are sheep farmers) – but to create a humane set up.
All live stock are free, healthy, happy, fulfilled; factory farming and the meat industry abolished
