It took me more effort than usual to write this as I feel pain and a heavy heart like everyone else. I have many religious friends, many friends who love their nations, and many Jew, Muslim, and Catholic friends.
To be clear, I am against any form of terrorism.
I now also have many indigenous friends who have been exterminated for generations and friends who believe in all kinds of things, so it is not easy to write this without taking risks to upset some of them, yet I want to write my truth from my guts. I say more in the audio if you want to hear me, as it’s easier to speak than to write, but here are some thoughts from my heart.
I’m interrupting the flow of my stories as I feel the energy and the pain so strong these days that I need to pause. This painting illustrates best “the world soul,” as Alex Grey called it.
The visual artist Alex Grey had this vision the day his daughter Zina was born in 1989. He completely forgot about a portion of the painting until someone made him notice when 9/11 happened that he had drawn the Twin Towers with two planes over them on the hell side of the painting. He also painted someone that looked like George Bush, a terrorist and a… dick embodying death. He remembered the future of 9/11 more than 12 years before the horrible events happened.
Men today are burning in the physical hell we created. Those who are not dying are immensely suffering.
My thoughts and prayers go to all my fellow human beings and friends closest to this horrible experience or lost family and friends. All of them.
Media and social media fuel the fire with unprecedented gasoline. There is so much flowing in our phones that the entire world is living it. Human history is sadly full of wars and destruction, but they were seen only by those suffering them in person, those who lived there. Today, social media and news organizations worldwide have never had so much material to spread immediately, as it is mostly the citizens who create them constantly. If they do not generate horror photos and videos, they spread them to everyone. It is impossible not to see hell always on your phone.
I was writing that it was like feeding your brain horror in my previous note, and every day, I talk to friends affected and recommend they stop looking at the news and their social feeds for a while.
Nature created the left side of the tree; humans “created” the right side by trying to control nature and destroying most of it. We made hell for ourselves, chose leaders, and bought stuff from businesses, creating death.
Every minute, we can choose between harmony and chaos, creation and destruction, life and death, beauty and horror.
Hate has four letters, and so does love.
Enemies has seven letters, and so does friends.
Lying has four letters, and so does heal.
Cry has three letters, and so does joy.
Negativity has ten letters, and so does positivity.
Life is two-sided. Choose the better side of it.
(Spotted here from a post from my partner Magdalena Sartori)
Nations are not needed.
A world government is needed. Unless we create a world government, nations will keep fighting.
We managed to do it with aviation. All planes worldwide follow the same rules and set of maps, or they cannot fly internationally and crash into each other. We managed to do it with the Internet with TCP/IP, one global protocol or language to move data regardless of borders or nations.
We can do it also to establish peace in the world. One nation, the world’s nation. Wasn’t this why the UN was created in 1945 post WWII? The idea was great; isn’t it time to give it real power?
Violence or killing is universal; everyone understands they should not be allowed. Protecting nature is universal, as humans will disappear if they keep going, regardless of which nation hurts nature the most. We all breathe air, drink water, and receive energy from the Sun. Everything we eat eventually comes from Earth, which does not know nations. Birds or rivers do not need a passport to cross our stupid borders.
Everything in nature is interconnected and global. Humans did not invent globalization. It has always been there.
Out of fear, we invented gods - Kirshnamurti
“Where there is fear, men inevitably seek something that will protect them because men are frightened. We invented all the religions, gods, and rituals. We put them all together by thought. Why do we accept religions without questioning them? Can we face our own fears, like a light being thrown on fears, without giving power to religious leaders?“
There is no need to go to temples, mosques, or churches. The whole existence is a temple, the temple of nature. The trees are continuously in worship, the clouds are in prayer, and the mountains are in meditation. Just start looking around.
How many thousands of years of war do we need to see how much trouble we created? Why should anyone be allowed to destroy other people’s lives in the name of nations or religions?
We don’t need any religious leaders forgiving us for what we did wrong.
We don’t need nation governments fighting against each other.
The only thing we have done wrong is following idiots.
The only way to stop war is for nations to disappear. The world should be one. There is no need for different flag colors on the map as much as there is no need to judge someone based on his skin color or race.
There is only one race, humans.
If we dissolve the nations, whom are we going to fight? If we stop giving power to religions, whom will we kill?
Religious leaders talk to us about heaven, but it is right here on Earth if we stop fighting and destroying nature. Politicians promise us a better future, but it is a constant lie. How long will we remain blind or NPCs? How long will we believe in the matrix and its rules that destroy everything? Wait until AI and machines become more autonomous, and the vision of the Matrix movie might become very real.
A civilized man is simply a man. He has no nation or religion. He considers all human beings equal and respects all life on the planet.
I have only one nation, the nation of a living being on planet Earth.
I have only one religion, the religion of protecting Mother Earth, that we are all equally the "native indigenous" of.
I have only one land I am from and a guest of, planet Earth, and so are you.
“My nation” makes no sense; any piece of the Earth existed before you and will be there after you die.
Nations and religions are an artificial and often dangerous human creation.
We need a world government to preserve peace, life, and planet Earth and fight terrorism in the name of humanity.just wrote a great post Apocalypse Archetype, asking about solutions.
Unity seems to be the only way.
We can all choose today to stop and choose the side of life, the left side of Alex Grey’s tree of life, and return in harmony with nature. We have much to learn from indigenous peoples who have remained the guardians of nature, especially the nomadic ones who are at home anywhere and move like birds where they need to be. They have not been able to move around much anymore.
Our borders will be unable to contain 8 billion people having to find a place to live because of climate change. In 2050, there will be 10 billion humans on the planet. At the pace we are destroying it, nature might not even be able to survive us, so we should unite and find solutions together, getting ready for that.
“Only those crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do” - Steve Jobs.
Why not start believing? We can continually transform ourselves. All we need is to decide and believe in it.
I want to share a beautiful message from the White Eagle, Hopi Indians, North American Tribe
“This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole. The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.
If you repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole.
But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal. Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual House.
When you are taking care of yourselves, you are taking care of everything else. Do not lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis; have the eagle aspect from above and see the whole; see more broadly.
There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is a spiritual demand — the two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and lack of meaning. You were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools available to you.
Learn about resistance of the indigenous and African peoples; we have always been, and continue to be, exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire, and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time.
You do not help at all being sad and without energy. You help if good things emanate from the universe now. It is through joy that one resists. When the storm passes, each of you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world.
You need to be well and strong. And for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy, and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation.
This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you cross this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties.
The following is what is asked of you:
Allow yourself to take advantage of this time to perform your vision-seeking rituals. What world do you want to build for you? For now, this is what you can do: Serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray every day. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day.
Good things emanate; what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith, and love.
When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, creeds and classes, and who by these actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They shall be known as the “Warriors of the Rainbow.”
Joseph White Eagle Hopi Prophecy
(thanks for sharing in our PAUA What’sapp,
We have been organizing for many years a quest for vision in the tradition described above; it is in February in Bacalar, Mexico. It is still possible to join our group that will fast in the jungle for four days and four nights; more information is in our dedicated WhatsApp group.
Only one word in the above text sounds off to me when Joseph Hopi talks about daily prayer. What does praying mean if there are no gods and religions to believe in other than nature? Praying to whom?
I believe in a universal consciousness that connects all life, and praying to nature makes sense; the power of thought makes sense, and that is how I understand praying. Praying is to clear my thoughts and focus on something good I want to “manifest.”
More on that another day. Thanks for reading.
