Reshaping the world
Quote of the day
‘You have that power to change the Earth and your life. It just takes a bit of courage and participation from each one of us. Two hands are often hard to reshape, resize and reform the Earth, but 14 billion hands makes it a lot easier.’
Greetings and salutations from a very, very cold and icy London town where temperatures are hovering above zero. I am unduly grateful for your presence on this growing Inspirational Channel.
‘Our prime motivation is to inspire. Your prime inspiration is to be motivated.’
I feel saddened by the atrocities of our world. In the current form nuclear weapons poses a huge threat to world stability. Climate change has seen drastic changes in weather patterns. The Earth is warming up and species of life and their habitats are diminishing. Viral outbreaks like Ebola takes the world by storm leaving thousands dead. Poverty is a growing problem too. Each day 22,000 children die as a result of poverty. When we entered the 21st Century over a billion people were still illiterate. In Syria, one of the oldest places on Earth where civilization has once started is still in turmoil. Thousands of human beings have died. The world is now infested with short, medium and long term problems from racism, human trafficking to petty crime. As human beings, the sole custodians of the living world we need to join hands together and effectively do something about it. It may be a mammoth task for just one individual but a joyous task if all 7 billion of us worked together. One of our greatest sources of inspiration comes from knowledge. I call it the Tree of Knowledge. From a single tree comes forth a forest, a haven for all and heaven for some. From the forest comes forth the ocean of life. In it the rivers create the valleys and the dunes with each blade of grass and each grain of sand accounted for. Such an opening of life with two, four or a hundred legs comes the nature of life. Amongst them are you and me with appendages adapted for our needs. The river, the valley, the forest, the ocean, the crops, the animals and the plants are all under our supervision. As supervisors we have failed over the millenniums and now the world has become tainted. To an onlooker from the outsider the Earth is no longer a paradise. The tree of knowledge is hidden amongst the chaos and the spiral wheel of life has become encoded with human greed. Mars is inhabited with a few microorganisms to meet the needs of Mars. The Earth is inhabited by many macro organisms to meet the need of their greed. Now the valley of knowledge is no longer green but tainted with doubt, conflict and conjecture instead? From a distance it may look uniform but on close examination all things in life have that constant taint of human greed. This is why our Earth lacks the beauty of a Paradise, of the original Eden. The Earth has been wounded over the centuries and has changed in shape, size and form. Migrant workers are constantly trying to repair it but the damage is too extensive. If only man could get his shoulders to the wheel and his mind in perspective, then there is a hope for the Earth to return to its original condition. You have that power to change the Earth and your life. It just takes a bit of courage and participation from each one of us. Two hands are often hard to reshape, resize and reform the Earth, but 14 billion hands makes it a lot easier.’ So, when life falls to pieces we need to hold hands together to restore peace and equanimity. Have a wonderful Thursday.
