I recently spent the afternoon at the Dandenongs on a wet and cold day. I was not in the best of spirits but I managed to return home with some wisdom from my visit to the Sherbrooke Forest. Thank you Trees. Thank you Gaia.
I have been feeling vulnerable lately, around people, around situations I would not normally feel uncomfortable at. But I guess this is what is, being comfortable in this newness, like a new born, aware of the surroundings, scared of what might happen. Should I come out? I don’t know. Peering to the light. Of course it is a YES.
My eyes, adjusting to the light. How can I feel vulnerable in the light? All will be okay.
Just a short update on a wonderful presentation by Michael Tellinger, the founder of a growing liberation Movement named ‘Ubuntu’. What started as a grassroots philosophy is now a political and people’s movement across the globe.
If you are ready to transform your communities to living breathing places of love please check out their website. You can also donate to this growing movement, let’s start shifting the money where we can make the best possible progress for humanity.
Should we condone the Killing of Cecil the Lion? I’m seeing a lot of fury and sadness around the death of Cecil the Lion. As an activist for environmental protection and health, of course this was upsetting. But I have to speak frankly and say, this event was something I could learn from. I knew tha tI oculd not judge this man. Why? Simply put, how could I judge this man for killing a Lion, when I, when needed, I have eaten meat.
Does this not contribute to the mass killing of animals around the world. Are fish, cows and chickens less equal to an endangered Lion. Has humanity become so indiffernt to eating meat that the death on millions of animals worldwide is okay, but the death of a lion is not.
Okay so many can say, this lion is endangered. Okay fair enough. Why are there none left? Well there are a few individuals that feel killing an animal is okay. For sport.
Okay, so the death of the millions, of animals, happens each day. This occurs simply. For food. To survive.
This is truth for many on the planet at this time. But can I draw attention to the reference and lack of concern to the words “kill” and “survive”. Do you want to be part of this reality? Can humanity leap beyond this consciousness to “birth” and “thrive”? Hell yes.
I’m not saying don’t eat meat. Although this is where humanity is headed whether you like it or not. Only you can make that choice. I’m not saying slaughtering a Lion for sport is okay. However, there is a deep lesson for all of humanity.
