I am awake, I am alive, and today I get to speak … to the future.
We Think We Know Better …
I am awake, I am alive, and this morning’s thought … “We think we know better!”
I was thinking of the snow this morning, as I glanced out my window. How it is a protective blanket for Mother Earth, allowing her to rest and rejuvenate before another year begins …
But we think we know better! So we plow and push and remove the blanket, then complain how damaged the ground is when summer comes.
My thoughts then turned to the autumn leaves so beautiful in colour, like party balloons celebrating all the spring and summer brought, only to fall to the ground when the party is over. The leaves are filled with the nutrients the grass and ground and root systems need, so this blanket is so important.
But again, we think we know better! We spend money to buy bags with corporate logos to strip the blanket away, exposing the now naked earth to the elements, only to buy nutrients and fertilizers for lawns come the spring, when they don’t look “healthy” enough.
And it is not just the external environment our Eurocentric minds destroy. We think we know better when our bodies say “rest”, pumping them full of caffeine and other stimulants so we can get more on our ego lists done.
We think we know better when aches and pains give us clues of internal damage and we medicate away headaches and nausea that are often signs of much worse.
But we think we know better! Which leaves me with only one question – how much of the planet and how many of us will die before we realize we do not?
Food for thought …
Me, I will remain in awe of the Creator and of the systems he designed. Body systems and ecosystems far superior to anything our brains can design.
We could just accept the gift.
We could just live in the harmony that is this Garden.
Or we can keep thinking we know better.
The choice, as always, is ours.
So today my friend, please don’t destroy what Creator so carefully built (and yes, that does include you).
I love you! HUGSSSSSSSSSS
