It is the most painful and depressing thing to know that so many humans don’t know the kind of treatment and love, that everyone deserves. It pains me to know that many people don’t even care and are ignorant of the fact that they are being severely, unfairly, and horrifically manipulated by big corporations, doctors, and the media. Most people only get in an uproar once they or a loved one have been injured, or diagnosed with an illness, and don’t have the means to pay for all the medical bills.
Our system was, and still is currently being designed so that humans are completely and totally dependent on corporations to survive. I had a conversation with a man the other night about the importance of water, and he seemed to think that petroleum was the most valuable resource on the planet. Normally, I have a lot of compassion for people, and quite honestly, I wish this stranger no harm, and a lifetime full of health and happiness. That being said, his opinion is completely delusional.
I made the point that human beings at birth are nearly 78% water, humans are LITERALLY bodies of water. He made the point that “But humans are dependent on oil.” I noted that humans were the ones who CREATED our dependency on oil. Therefore, what you create, you can also destroy, or change. “There’s no way our society is going to do that”, he says. I said, “Agree to disagree. I respect your right to your belief, but mine is different, and that’s OK.” And it is okay. What I’m having a hard time with is knowing that this man probably isn’t one in a thousand. His mentality is most likely representative of the mentality of the majority of Americans. This guy was probably hoping to get my number by the end of our conversation, and I’m currently in a relationship so it wouldn’t have worked even if he had asked me for it… But if that wasn’t a factor, why would I even want to entertain the thought of going on a date with someone who has such a TEENY TINY…….. imagination? Musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger darling.
It is times like these in which I could allow myself to feel so hopeless for the world. America is a huge and powerful nation, but we’re also a nation that fosters lazy, selfish, greedy, and co-dependent narcissists. Much of our self-worth is derived from how much money and power we have, how attractive we are, how many friends we have, what kind of job we have, how many Twitter or Tumblr followers we have, how many “likes” we get on Instagram, and what the people in our little nucleuses think and feel about us. Meanwhile, we completely lose touch with our souls and spirits. We lose touch with the very thing that gave us life: Mother Earth.
Now I’m not saying, we all need to be completely IN-dependent from oil, or that Lays potato chips don’t serve their purpose in the world, (I love me some Lays BBQ)… I’m just asking people to expand their imaginations. Instead of saying, “That would never work”, or, “you’re pretty naive to think we could actually revolutionize the way humanity thinks and lives”, or, “I don’t have any money to give, I don’t know how to change the world”, try having a little faith; okay, a LOT of faith. There are plenty of us who are already leading the way, so take a cue, and start looking up to people who are actually creating sustainable, and positive change. These are the people you should listen to, not the bullies, not the closed-minded, not the religious leaders who claim that they know everything - by the way, anyone who claims to know everything, most certainly does not. There is a globally conscious community, and we are trying to help you, but you’ve got to be responsible for yourself.
The World Water Crisis should be called the World Spirit Crisis. The condition of the water on the planet is directly reflective of the spirit in all Earth’s living beings. In many developing countries, they don’t even have access to safe drinking water. Here in America, we may have access to “clean” water, but let me tell you, the water is not safe. Our water is purified with chlorine - a fucking chemical I’d rather not INGEST - and fluoride, which debilitates the thyroid gland, the gland that controls how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive the body is to other hormones. Whoever thought that was a great idea, I need you to know, you are delusional.
March 22nd is World Water Day. I implore you to join me, and the rest of the world at 3pm PST, in prayer over water. Many of us across the globe will be praying over bodies of water to raise the energy and consciousness of water. If we show Mother Earth that we still care about her, that we haven’t forgotten who we are, and that we truly appreciate the amazing gift of life, who knows how our lives could be blessed?! For those of you who have forgotten what a truly amazing gift life is, I encourage you to connect with nature as soon as possible. It doesn’t have to be for a long time, but take your shoes off and go reconnect with the living being that made it possible for you to live your life.
Say thank you to the trees that provide us with oxygen. Thank you to the birds who provide us with free music every day. Thank you to the butterflies that remind us that there is always life after death. Thank you to the sun who shines, whether it’s cloudy, or nighttime. Thank you to the grass that separates us from the heat of the core of the Earth. Thank you to the water that, like a piece of music, connects every human being. Thank you to the stars that remind us what we’re made of. Thank you to the animals who bring so much beauty to this world. Thank you for my life, because it is a beautiful one, and at the end of it, I’m going to look back and be grateful that I did everything I could to channel my gratitude into passion for making this world a better place for all living beings. I am grateful for you.
With love and good madness,
