A Perspective on Global Warming
It is a fact that during the past year many weather stations in North
America have seen record breaking high temperatures. Global warming is happening. There has been considerable
discussion about it in the media with scientific and academic voices expressing their notions about
Most of these notions include concern that this is a
bad/alarming/undesirable change as if the Earth were a mechanical operation that was in good running order when
they were children or whatever time they are considering when they were comfortable with the weather, when the
weather was functioning correctly and that now weather is malfunctioning and needs fixing.
It is my understanding that the Earth is a living, sentient,
conscious Being on Her path of self-growth, healing and self-realization at the right time and place in her
processes. That the changes in Her body, in what we call the weather systems, are part of Her consciously
engaged self-growth processes. It may be that this time is a "healing crisis" or "cleansing" for Her. It may
more simply be Her adaptation to greater consciously created cosmic change patterns.
In any case, rather than being alarmed/fearful/resisting of these
changes, it would seem to me that embracing them as desirable and exciting, albeit challenging, would be more
supportive to the consciouly evolving Earth, whose body we are a part of.
The same way that we work on persoal healing with discomforts in our
own body, befriending them and trying to understand the messages they have for us about changes we need to make
in our attitudes and lifestyles, we can try addressing those Earth changes that we are uncomfortable about,
befriending them and asking them for their messages. We can be adaptive and co-creative, expanding our
world-view and embracing the presenting reality of what is, rather than bemoaning the fact, that things are no
longer as they once were.
I am no longer as I once
Shall I then love myself less?
Accepting that polar caps are melting
and spiecies are moving into new areas
fields are shifting
and some species are dying out while others are
coming to new prominance,
holding our focus on the highest good of all
intending for peaceful integration of the changes in our lives
seeing the new possibilities and
we can engage positively with global warming.
Many of us do.
