Mother Earth's Wisdom and Lament

"One affliction is better than a thousand exhortations."
--Turkish Proverb

"PROVERBS and maxims are not merely nice sayings, or left-over remnants from what some erroneously believe to be an inferior antiquity. They are the accumulated wisdom of centuries, the assimilated experiences of many generations of thinkers, and are based upon law and fact. The simplicity of language in which a maxim is expressed should not mislead a person into believing that for this reason its value is small. The simplest statements are often the most profound. The very ability to cast great ideas in plain words is itself proof and testimony of the experience and understanding of the author. Ideas simply expressed represent lessons well learned.

That one affliction is better than a thousand exhortations does not mean that the advice given by men is of no value. It only means that Karma, after all, is the best teacher -- especially in Kali Yuga. An exhortation may embody the highest wisdom, and be spoken in words of poetical beauty, and yet fail utterly to touch the inner real life of the listener. Counsel seldom penetrates the inner layers of consciousness to the extent an affliction does.

Why is this so, do we ask? "

Together the wrongs can be made right. The choices and decisions of the heart manifest global healing, one breath and one beat at a time through sharing our Love Divine.

Beautiful video from the heart of planet earth.

Thank you.

This makes me cry, we take her for granted. She is in pain, and dying right before out eyes.
We are so blessed, everything is here provided for our daily bread. Yet, her life is slowly being taken away by us.
woe, woe to us who do not take care of the land we stand on, take shelter, and eat from.

May the wind take the spoken word and spread it like the seeds of life to others!
May the waters flow and heal our hearts and planet and unite us as the rivers run to the ocean.
May that which is true and good stand on it's own accord and SHINE as a beacon!

To my HH / OM soul family I send love : light : endless joyful adventures,
