What are the caretakers of this world

IMG_1413What are the caretakers of this world, we were given the responsibility to care for and maintain this wondrous gift that we call Earth.  We have walked down the path of destruction and not one of nurturing and preservation far too long, if we do not change our course we shall lose this planet we call home. Time to plant trees, clean up industry and preserve what wildlife we have remaining. We need the wildlife and the plant life we have here on earth to survive, we also need the air and water we have to be clean to survive as well. What is profit compared to the lives of the many future generations of our kind? It is illogical to seek profit that only destroys or harms  your households future generations.

The love of money only leads to the los of true treasures such as those you love and the future of your household. Imagine what kind of world your great-grandchild will have or even your great great grandchild. Do you want them to have clean water, air and food to eat? Do you want them to see the wonders of the forests and the wildlife they contain?  God gave us this world to live in and he also gave it to us to care for. It’s only fair to care for the earth since it has always provided us with what we needed to survive. If we neglect our home to long it will become so damaged it may not be able to support life anymore.

Until God calls us home to heaven we should care for the home he has blessed us with.

Ego, the self and some random thoughts.

Detail of The School of Athens by Raffaello Sa...

Ego, the self and the center of our consciousness is both the root to selfishness and to compassion. We are individuals and can not deny that part of our existence, but we are also apart of the group. Usually we interact with a small group that in turn interacts with other groups. in the end the collection of groups create a larger group such as a community. It continues on until we reach the collection of states, nations and in the end we are one big group called the human race.  It all starts from the individual and works its way up to the whole species. One individual can change the consciousness of the whole world, though sometimes it takes generations for a thought of one to reach the masses, nowadays with the internet any one person can get their voice heard across the world and do so in less than a few minutes. This is the era of information and the freedom of ideas and as long as governments do not censor the internet and the voices of the people this world will change dramatically in the next decade or so.

So in this era there should be more focus on individuality and the responsibility of each persons actions and words. What you put out on the internet is available for anyone to see from young to old and from one corner of the world to the other. This is the time for visionaries, dreamers, teachers and free thinkers to come out and voice their ideas and or opinions to help change our world into a more peaceful and happier world to live in. Where are the Plato’s, Socrates‘s of our time and when will they share their philosophies for all to see? It is a time for change, a change that starts with the people not the governments. The governments will change along with us the people in time. But we must start with ourselves before we can enact change in the political systems of the world.

Change must start within ourselves before it can manifest in the world around us.

To make the changes needed in time to save our beautiful home called Earth.

editforlogo1b Toxic wastes being dumped and pumped into our precious world. Greed outweighs common sense and our sensibility. Our beloved planet and our beautiful home called earth is becoming our garbage can and eventually our graveyard. We only have one Earth and we should be responsible stewards of our beautiful home. Progress, greed and the lust for power seem to be in control as well as convenience instead of responsibility and compassion. The greedy keep the green technology too expensive for the average person to afford so that we will keep relying on their oil, coal and the utility companies to live our convenient and comfortable lives. Eventually the price for our comfort and conveniences will cost the future of our species and most if not all other living creatures on our precious world.

There is no easy answer in converting our carbon based world into a more green world, there will be winners and losers alike and for the greedy there is profit to be made. It is up to us the common folk to get the message out and to start the change to a greener lifestyle. Our future generations are counting on us and if we fail there may be a high price to pay for those who come after us. As we can see we can not count on the governments of the world or the big businesses to take the ecological problems seriously or to make the changes needed in time to save our beautiful home called Earth.

God gave us this beautiful planet and made us the stewards of it all. We should do what is right and not what is easier or more profitable.
