Dear friends, I think one reason for our insanity of insisting that we can constantly pour global warming polluting gases into the atmosphere that cradles all life, and acid into into the oceans that are the womb of all life, is that we think we know all the answers. We believe we can fix anything and everything.
The trouble is we don't know the questions and don't see it is we who need fixing. ppo Peter
Mutant Messages from Down Under
Two very pertinent quotes for feeling and channelling UPRAGE
... somewhere in the dry heat of the Outback there remains a slow, steady, ancient heartbeat, a unique group of people not concerned with racism, but concerned only with other people and the environment. To understand that pulse is to better understand being human or human being-ness.
Oneness for us is not an essence that surrounds things or is present inside of things—it is everything.
They do not celebrate getting older; what they do celebrate is becoming better.
I learned I could live more than one life in a lifetime.
Truth is truth. If you hurt someone, you hurt self. If you help someone, you help self.
“There is no morality in war', they said, 'but cannibals never killed more in one day that they could eat. In your wars, thousands are killed in a few minutes. Perhaps it might be worth suggesting to you leaders that both parties in your war agree to five minutes of combat. Then let all the parents come to the battlefield and collect the pieces and parts of their children, take them home and mourn and bury them. After that is over, another five minutes of battle might or might not be agreed upon. It is difficult to make sense out of senselessness.”
(note from UPRAGE: the American indigenous people used to say on observing how the whites lived that the palefaces 'eat their grandchildren'. A thought this rather harsh. They also said the Mothers admonished the chiefs to make all decisions based considering the effects on the 7th generation. We are now 7 generations since the eating grandchildren saying and we are committing all our best agricultural land to destruction by today's record atmospheric greenhouse concentrations and emissions.
~ Marlo Morgan Quotes from Mutant Message from Down Under
“The spider's lesson is never to be greedy. It shows that objects of necessity can be objects of beauty and art as well. The spider teaches us that we can be too easily enraptured with ourselves.”
It seems mutants have something in their lives called gravy. They know truth, but it is buried under thickening and spices of convenience, materialism, insecurity, and fear. They also have something called frosting. It seems to represent how they spend almost all the seconds of their existence in doing superficial, artificial, temporary, pleasant-tasting, nice appearing projects and spend very few actual seconds of their lives developing their eternal beingness.
