There is an Eden…

bealtaine cottage posterThere is an Eden…we stand upon it.

Our potential to change the environment we inhabit is boundless.

permaculture gardens at Bealtaine CottageIf we started today and worked hard for all the changes we want to see, the possible transformation is beyond our wildest dreams.

bealtaine cottage pathsWhether we have land or not, what we are capable of implementing, in terms of creating Eden, is only limited by two things…our imagination and our ability to use our energy. entrance to bealtaine“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
Arundhati Roy

missy in the kitchen by the stoveThis is my favourite slice of text written by Arundhati.

I have mentioned it before, but, personally, never tire of contemplating her wise words…

“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.

The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
Arundhati Roy, War Talk

fracking posterWe create Heaven, or allow others to create Hell, whether that be through destruction of our environment, as they are doing with fracking, for example, or allowing governments to collude with corporate monsters without challenge…they are, after all, our elected trustees.

planting the futureWe expect them to hold in trust our land, our welfare, and even our children!

We must demand accountability at every level!

~ If Governments Can Finance BOMBS, Then Finance This!

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Bombs.

How much money is spent on bombs each year?

Cluster bombs. Hmm…they’re nasty.

Apparently, when it explodes, smaller bombs fly out and scatter exploding and causing mayhem…what an incredible thing for the human mind to invent!

september 2011 bealtaine cottage 012Explosive shock waves can cause situations such as body displacement (i.e., people being thrown through the air), dismemberment, internal bleeding and ruptured eardrums.

Hmm…don’t want to think about that, do you?

Permaculture Cottage ...September 2011 007What a lot of money and imagination to spend on KILLING.

What happens when a bomb is dropped?

Well, a thermal wave is created by the sudden release of heat caused by the explosion.

Permaculture Cottage ...September 2011 008Military bomb tests have documented temperatures of up to 2,480 °C (4,500 °F).,  capable of inflicting severe to catastrophic burns!

September 2011 Permaculture Cottage 018Military development of thermobaric weapons,  employ a combination of negative shock wave effects and extreme temperature to incinerate objects within the blast radius.

So lots of incineration…sounds like HELL!

Bealtaine Cottage in September 2011 Permaculture Cottage 001And the millions of people who have NO access to healthcare remain sick and dying… Even in the countries where these bombs are manufactured, millions of people go WITHOUT adequate access to any form of healthcare…now, that IS sick!

We can grow, or we can kill.

September 2011 Permaculture Cottage 020We can mend, or we can destroy.

September Permaculture at bealtainecottage.com 027We can heal, or we can pollute…THE CHOICE IS OURS.

We should not allow the criminally insane Politicians to keep making these choices for us!
