Humans and the earth

I am a stream of life flowing upon the earth.  Moving moment by moment. My heart is unique, yet a gift of chance, a fleeting leaf straggling in the force of the wind.

Whether my creation is by a divine hand or the result of an impossible chance of combined molecules, i see the gift of living as the same. Only the world we forge in our minds determine our worth and that of others.

Humanity repeats its history again and again which is the story of finding meaning amongst our desires and our sense of self. We fight for the things we want to protect, no better than any other animal.

It seems nature gave humanity a unique mind, we think we are better then the animals based solely on our sense of intelligence.

Nature brings humanity viruses killing millions. We create a protection through science and medicine but we fail to recognize that natures is counting on humanity dying, so it can thrive.
With minds of such intelligence we make wars upon each other. Perhaps nature allowed an intelligent mind to be ruled by emotions which may lead to violence, to keep humanity’s population lower. Perhaps our sense of evil behavior was instilled in us by nature as a form of self preservation for itself.

We are organic beings, we are connected to the earth, there may be a deep connection we fail to recognize as we forge kingdoms in our mind whom we choose to serve, rather than know the kingdom of the earth around us. Tribes who lived in close connection to the earth must know something a westernized technology ridden person can not perceive.

We think we need to create solutions for the earth when all the earth wants is for humanity to stop exploiting it and kull the ignorant part of humanity so it can heal itself.
Perhaps at a point in the future we may have to sacrifice our intelligence to find our place on this earth.

One thought on “Humans and the earth

  1. Really interesting mate.
    I definitely agree with the last part. Maybe our “intelligence” stops us from living in full connection with our environment and stunts the possibility of us having a symbiont relationship with it.
