Oneness and swimming with polar bears.
We are on the Earth and of the Earth. We are consumers and will be consumed. There are animals that farm and exist other animals. There are plants that live off other plants and indeed other animals. Humans are not unique in the use of this world and its resources for our existence. We are unique in that we overuse, abuse and have moved out of sync with our environment.
If God beings are your thing, you would accept that God is omnipresent and omnipotent by all common understanding. That means she/he/it knows and has always known the path we would take as a species, and loves us regardless/has a plan/has no care.
My view is that we are all of spirit. The entire planet, its beings and minerals are all created from spirit. We are not created evil. Evil is a concept and a perspective. A lion killing a gazelle is not evil. Neither is a hungry crocodile. We co-exist not be not killing each other but by living in harmony with our environment and fellow being. Lions and gazelles, crocodiles and cows, polar bears and seals, these are all creatures that co-exist in a harmonious manner. And so can we with the rest of the natural world.
Yes, graphic may be an over-simplification but it is an ideal to which we would, as intelligent beings, want to realise instead of consuming out of “fear of not enough” until there truly is not enough for any Earthling. And that would not be fair to our non-human breatheren.

I tried to write about real things. I wanted to describe the world, because to live in an undescribed world was too lonely.
The relationship you have with the world is just like any other relationship. Every now and again, even if it’s pissed you off for no good reason, you have to look it in the eyes and say: I love you.
