This is one book that’s on my to read list. I’ve heard such good things about this book. I must admit it’s not a book that I thought would be on my list of ‘to read’. It is however all related to the Building of Heaven on Earth.
The Jesus Book by Linda Dillon.
“This isn’t another book about Jesus – this book is Jesus talking directly to us, reminding us that his messages of love have never changed. Jesus is inviting us to walk with him once again and hear his messages for the twenty-first century.
Jesus takes our hand and reminds us about the true meaning of love–love of self, family, neighbors, our planet and Mother/Father/One Source. He is doing so by talking about his own life experiences on Earth. He is answering up many of the unanswered questions we have had about his life.
Jesus once again reaches out to us, in modern language and with practical advice and insights. He is calling out to all people of the planet to hear his words again—his messages for the twenty-first century.”
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.
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.
