The weather has been mild and very damp, ideal for mushroom growing. There are lots of these growing in the tunnel.
Though it’s not actually mushrooms I want to talk about today.
You see there are things on my mind that are troubling me…
Biting the Hand that feeds YOU!
For if we are to live in the world as we know it, then we have to make changes…
The killing fields of World War One left mountainous mounds of dead
and gave us our agriculture of today,
We are what we eat.
From that day to this we have almost drowned Gaia in chemicals!
Chemicals to kill Gaia’s workforce; bees, insects and bacteria.
Chemicals poured in relentless fashion into her rivers and oceans to make our clothes whiter, cleaner and our homes chemical waste grounds.
Where babies are reared in exclusion zones that make them weak and sometimes ill…for the good bacteria that aids children in developing strong immune systems, is no longer allowed!
A Better Way
Yes, there is a better way!
I am exploring aspects of it in whatever small way possible.
But, overall, the solution is simple…
Mostly, the solutions require little more than common sense, some small effort and a willingness to keep an open mind and ask questions!
The words of Albert Einstein resonate more today than ever before…
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe … We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self.
We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
