We need to realize that Planet Earth, on which we live, is also a living organism.
We are a microcosm living on a macrocosm. Therefore, if Planet Earth is a living
organism, then just as we feel stress in its many forms, strokes, heart attack, cancer
etc., so too is Planet Earth also susceptible to its own form of stress, the effects
of which we are experiencing world-wide.
The ‘Law of Balance’ in science says: “where there is an action, there is an opposite
and equal reaction.
This scientific ‘Law of Balance’ is also echoed in religion: “Do unto others what
you would have them do unto you”. The Buddhist teaching describes it as Karma.
Excessive CO 2 emissions have caused stress to our Planet and chocked the Earth’s
atmosphere. As a result, this stress has caused erratic and violent changes in weather
patterns around the world. All life on Earth is dependent upon oxygen. Therefore,
the effects of diminishing oxygen-producing rain forests and rising carbon monoxide
has left our planet choking and stressed.
Nuclear tests and buried nuclear waste have taken its toll and also played a significant
part in damaging the earth’s atmosphere. Consequently, an imbalance has occurred
in the Earth’s structure, causing stress for our Planet, in its many forms, earthquakes,
volcanoes, tidal waves etc. Today, the Law of Balance is out of whack and all of
the Planet’s natural protective systems which are there to keep the planet (the Macrocosm)
and humanity (The Microcosms) safe, are out of balance. The natural alignment of
this safety mechanism is experiencing a heightened state of STRESS, causing a rapid
decline in the general health of Planet Earth. Not only have we witnessed the changes
from year to year,
but we have also seen this decline gaining momentum and accelerating the effects
of climate change on a global scale.
Our planet is unable to cope and now humanity must take responsibility for its mistakes
and take ACTION NOW!
We worry about losing money whether it be on the stock market or in the economy.
We worry about losing money and jobs if business has to pay the cost of environmentally-
friendly technology, machinery and production.
We worry about the high cost which will be passed on to the consumer in food, essential
services and other goods.
Whereas, we should take one step back and look at the BIGGER PICTURE!
Aren’t we already paying the highest cost for climate change right now? With floods,
fires, tsunamis, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes etc. we are already paying the
highest price, with human lives.
On a global scale, the people of the world need to take notice and act now.
Governments, business and the scientific community, globally, MUST take responsibility
and act NOW!
