Human Resources

tues 003

The Corporate Christmas is well under way, de-humanizing society and sterilizing traditions and beliefs.

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Human Resources is the new term for people who are employed.

This is how the Corporation views you…as a receptacle for stuff…So much stuff!

Who owns the stuff?

Bealtaine Cottage

Do you own it or does it own you?

You insure it!

You clean it!

You watch it.

You worry about it!

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

It does not care for you.

You die, the stuff remains!

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Keep acquiring the stuff.

Send some of your stuff to the landfill dump.

There is nowhere for the stuff to go…there is no away…stuff rules!

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

The precious life you have is dominated by stuff that doesn’t care.

Every last bit of that stuff has been excavated or tortured from Mother Earth.

Trees are cut down to create elaborated hardwood boxes to inter the dead…impregnated with chemicals before being buried in the earth…decades of pollution for the Great Mother to have to deal with!

The Great Mother…perhaps if we had more understanding of the Mother Goddess and less of the patriarchal dominant society that is predicated on universal abuse, we would be living more harmoniously on this Sacred Earth today!

I’m off to clear out more stuff for the Charity Shop and simple gifting to others!

However, Teddy stays!

Keeping the Darkness at Bay

Summer shed at Bealtaine CottageAt this point in time, as the Earth is convulsed in sickness manufactured by mankind, it appears that the climate crisis has become a business opportunity for polluters!

Barn, gravel, Valerian and GeraniumMonoculture is extracting and mining and leaving us with raped Earth.

Nasturtiums and Ox-eye daisyThis monoculture madness is being aided and abetted by the EU…the same EU that paid Irish farmers to rip out hedgerows, some of which had been there for hundreds of years.

Sedum for the bees, Parsley for me!It’s time for those who care to step up to the front line!

It really is gloves off time.

We must call it out for what it is…ecocide…the rape, torture and murder  of the Mother!

Potager bed planting at Bealtaine CottageMonoculture plantations destroy the natural diversity of life, at a time when the balance is fast becoming a tightrope walk for Nature!

Rain on Nasturtium in the Permaculture GardensAnd it’s not just monoculture tree planting that is the cause of widespread diseases, destruction of native habitat and destitution for wildlife!

Rain on Nasturtium leavesModern farming practice is predicated on monoculture of the land and the mind.

What can we do?

Bee on Nasturtium flower at Bealtaine CottageEach one of us can do a lot.

Sugar snap peas from saved seed!Speak openly!

Confront the reality!

Vote with our wallets!

Harass our politicians!
