Our situation is somewhat bizarre...
We are all ecto-parasites,
living on the surface of an itinerant pioneer, careering through
uncharted space at breakneck speeds, spinning and turning as we
We are not aware of
any destination or goal, we can not affect our path and today,
we are located in a totally different space to yesterday and we
will never return.
We are all 100% dependent on The Big Ball we live on and we have
no idea what we are doing here and where our host is taking us,
if anywhere at all.
In the big scheme of
things, our individual lives are as uncertain as they are
We are not as important
as we like to think.
In fact, unless we are
tending to the needs of our host in some way, frankly, we are either
irrelevant or just a pain in the ass, a thorn in the side of our
What are the needs of
our Mother Earth?
What does she require
I asked my own mother
this question in my early 20's, when I desperately wanted to enter a
period of introspection that I suspected might continue for years
and result in me disconnecting from the family circles.
Like any good mother, she told me that she just wanted me to be
After I pointed out that
this was a hope for me, rather than a requirement of me, she gave it
a second thought and decided that she had none. She had no real
requirements of me whatsoever.
Likewise, our Great Mother requires nothing of us.
We are on a ride, a
We are on the back of
someone so much larger and we can do precisely nothing for her.
She is so
magnificent, so huge and dynamic, with such intelligence that we
have barely begun to realize her significance to us, let alone
understand her or communicate with her.
The idea that we can
assist Planet Earth in some way is insane.
We have nothing to
All we have to offer
is taken from her.
We are her.
Our duty is to live
with her, her way, in unison and harmony - and to enjoy the
ride, even celebrate the opportunity she has given us to exist
But we misconceived an
idea of who and what we are and we started to imagine that we are
not a dependent part of Mother Earth and that we are in some way
more than that.
It is laughable that we
have deduced that our individuality is more important than our
collective nature. It highlights a lack of development in the areas
of intelligence (as in common sense) and intuition.
Instead we humans focus on developing our intellect.
We are lower-mind
We like to try and
know about stuff.
We rub our chins and
think a lot, dig around and study, stare up to the skies,
observe, measure if we can, and write books to document what we
find, when almost everything is subjective.
Certainly everything is
subject to change and everything changes constantly and so in truth,
there are very few actual "facts".
What we call facts
are just descriptions of what we think we know about something,
that we can not disprove at that time...
This of course does not
mean to say that any of these facts may one day be disproved,
or developed and then what was a "fact" becomes "how we used to
think", and so it goes on.
I make no apology to academics when I point out that they are on a
fruitless path towards madness unless they are developing their
intelligence alongside their intellect.
Intellect is knowing
that a tomato is a fruit.
leaving it out of the fruit salad...!
One of the hardest things
to accept is that we can not know everything.
Our brains are not big
enough to be able to perceive what's really going on...
Our best description of
this experience is that it's a mystery.
This is the most
useful perception, or acceptance that we can form and hold. It is a mystery and it
always will be - to us at least.
The deeper we go, the less it makes
It is like ants trying to perceive our world, it is not
possible. It is not their designation.
Similarly, no matter how much we develop our brains, there are
always higher forces at play all around us, beyond anything we can
think about or "feel" in the common sense and they dictate our
lives, like the
dimensions we live in and
the forces that allow us to
function within them, as we stand on our Mother and hurtle through
The point is, to relax a little and enjoy the ride that we have all
been blessed with, no matter what your circumstances are or how long
or short your particular ride may be.
The very isness of
what we are all a part of is absolutely magnificent and if we can
accept the unknowable and surrender to the mystery, we will all
enjoy the ride.
Our only duty is to clean up after ourselves.
For those of you that
can still hear your own mother screaming up the stairs at you
to, "Clean your room!"
You are the lucky ones,
she taught you well. I hope you had to do chores around the house
too. These things taught us that we are needed and we are useful.
They taught us to help
keep our environment clean.
For those of us that have not yet figured out why cleanliness is
regarded as next to godliness and continue to leave a mess in the
wake of your actions take heed.
This is not intelligent behavior and my guess is it will only be
tolerated to a point.

is obviously undertaking a journey and we are with her.
Whether or not there
is a reason or a destination, we don't know
If she really is
predominantly feminine and she seems to be, it is likely there
is no reason for this magnificent movement.

Purpose will most
likely be found within the experience.
If we want it to
continue, our only duty is to clean up after ourselves, beginning at
the core of our experience, our own body.
Clean up the body which
decontaminates the mind that governs our actions and we create a
harmonious environment and atmosphere around us, which naturally
supports our Mother and we will all live happily ever after.
