Be Humane -- Life On Earth Is A Sanctuary
Life on Earth is a sanctuary . . . humans are the stewards. You are here to care for every living plant and creature and every other part that may not seem to be alive in your limited perception. What is alive is difficult to qualify and quantify when the references are narrowly defined. You are here to care for the air, the water, and the land down to the core of this planet. You are the caregivers for the plants on the Earth; the creatures that walk the Earth; burrow beneath its surface; fly above it with their hollow bones and feathered bodies, and all the creatures of the waters with their aquatic and amphibious natures. You are to take care of them all, for they are just like you . . . alive. The minerals and metals found beneath the Earth are a vital part of the Earth's anatomy.
Humans are short-sighted and blind -- you've developed a profound ability to strip-mine these resources . . . a global tragedy of the living Earth in the making. You've been removing these resources for centuries, but now the machinery has become so large and accelerated . . . you've reached a tipping point . . . you're at a critical moment. You must now recognize the Earth as a living entity; value her anatomy . . . humans, and all creatures, are the guests living on her body. Like the trillions of microbes that live in your body, whenever they devalue your structure and strip you down, you become depleted, sick and eventually die. This is exactly what's taking place in this moment of time -- the minerals and waters beneath the surface; the air, water and atmosphere above and around -- all of this is depleting the Earth.
Our prayer is that you realize and recognize everything is life; that you don't need so much to be happy; that you don't need to rip such massive amounts from the mother's body; that the creatures of this planet are not your food, but your evolutionary companions . . . all on the same journey of consciousness. Be the humans -- be humane.
