“You forget that the fruits belong to all and that the land belongs to no one.” ~Rousseau
Earth, our home. It has been here for 4.54 billion years and will probably be here a lot longer after our species is gone. However, in the time being we are merely the temporary tenants of our planet.
Our species being a thinking and reasoning species is the steward of the land. But our dominant nature has lead us to create fictitious borders and divisions of our planet. And our egos have lead us to falsely believe that we can possess what cannot be possessed and everything that has been created in our world. It is the false belief of separation that leads us to believe that we are separate from everything and all creation, when all creation is part of us already.
“God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.” ~Jacques Deval
We are the most intelligent species of our planet and yet the most naive. We have damaged our world for the fictitious concept of money or profit. Without realizing that we are only harming ourselves, humanity has given very little thought to the connection to our planet and we have scarred our world with the fires of war and greed. We have conquered other human races amongst each other and all the other species but yet have still not figured out how to conquer ourselves. Humans are the only species on the planet that attacks and destroys for the purpose of ambition, power, honor, fame, or wealth. We are a juvenile species of perpetual immaturity. The future of our planet is in our hands, dependent on our level of consciousness. Wake up!
“I don’t understand why when we destroy something created by man we call it vandalism, but when we destroy something created by nature we call it progress.” ~Ed Begley Jr.

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” ~Osho
