There are problems all over the Earth.
I don’t have to make a list…you know what is happening that is causing so much concern.
The problems are all rotating around destruction and involve peoples of all cultures and religions.
Despite all our differences, there is really only one common denominator we all share…Mother Earth!
Despite years of belonging to a particular religion, of all the sermons I listened to, the words, “Mother Earth,” were never mentioned by any man.
Surely we need to teach our children love and respect for our home?
Surely this should be at the forefront of all religious teaching?
The one missing element of understanding is Mother Earth.
The “Financial Markets,” predicated on what is extracted from Mother Earth, care little for the destruction caused in extractive processes.
What is left behind, the degradation and loss, is of no concern.
The “Markets,” are talked up and down, as though there are multiple Earths!
We know there is only one.
Sacred is not to be found in Bank Vaults; Parliaments; Stock Exchanges; Temples; Churches…but on where each one of us is today: Mother Earth.
Each bomb, bar of gold, barrel of oil, tank of gas, is painfully extracted, at great environmental cost…the real price of which is never, ever measured; for to attempt to do so would crash all the economic markets!
We are living in denial, in a Disneyfied world of our own warped imaginings, where the insane is justified and mainstream!
At some point we may just realise that…
…our greatest common bond is not our humanity, it is what nurtures our humanity…our Mother.
