NOTICING NATURE NOW    WHEN WE ARE SLOW      & TRAFFIC NOISE GONE

Some Gifts from the CJC Creative Arts Group

This amazing plant has flowered at Les & Dorothy's home. They say it flowers every ten years. And here it is ! During Covid Times !  Thomas tells us that, It’s botanical name is Yucca filamentosa and one of its common names is Adam’s Needle after the hard pointed tips of he leaves. It is native to the Southeastern United States. It was an important plant to Native Americans who used its fibres for cord and cloth (and maybe its leaves with which to sew these?), and the roots as a shampoo.

ONCE UPON A PLANET        IN A FAR AWAY TIME

A fairy tale that unfolded onto the page, through Lorna McNeur, on 31 March 2020

This Fairy Tale is Our True Story

From the Horrors of Our Darkest Days

to The Hope Shining Through Creatively

ONCE UPON A PLANET 

IN A FAR AWAY TIME

 

Once Upon a Planet

In a far away Time

There were plants and animals and humans

Who Lived in harmony together

 

Loving and respecting each other

And in balance with their Mothership

Planet Earth

 

As they all grew together 

Through many thousands of years

The humans began discovering

How to be very clever

With their hands and their minds

 

They made communities

That grew and grew and grew

So large that after many more 

Thousands of years

There became not enough room

for the Animals of Planet Earth

 

They also discovered a thing called money

and became so in love with it

That after a while

Nothing but money mattered

And eventually caused Disaster and Tragedy

All over Mothership Planet Earth

CLIMATE CRISIS - FACING THE HORROR

The Rain forests were felled

to make money money money

Gorilla and Orangutang families crushed

The horror of watching their loved ones killed

Wandering bewildered, alone and lost, in the devastation

after losing their parents, babies, families, community

to crashing trees being felled by money hungry corporations 

Stealing the Planet of Life giving Oxygen for All

 

(The equivalent for humans would be to experience

The tall towers of international cities falling upon them

with no warning, help, explanation or support)

 

Elephant families

watching their Loved ones Slaughtered mercilessly

before their very eyes 

by poachers greedy for money

Amazing birds and insects

All the extraordinary creatures worldwide 

All senselessly brutally smashed and killed

 

And other Animals were born into the world

to be eaten by the humans

or to be used for the milk that their bodies created

Animals turned into products

for human consumption

Boys born to die and be eaten

Girls born as slaves to make milk and eggs

and killed when they could no longer produce

 

The Polar Icecaps melted from the Planet overheating

Polar bears and penguins began starving

And all of the magnificent Oceans 

And their extraordinary Creatures dying

from the senseless behaviours of the Human Race

This was Tragedy on unimaginable scales

 

This once beautiful Planet became so out of balance

That the voracious appetite of ever-growing humankind 

had become its own monster

There is a Native American Saying:

‘When the last tree is felled

the last animal killed

no clean water left

and the plants grow no more 

In the end

you cannot eat money’

 

But for hundreds of years

Nobody listened to these Wise Words

of these Wise Peoples and many other Wise Cultures

Who worshipped and respected Balance

of the Earth, Seasons, Plants, Animals, and All 

They were also crushed by the money monsters

WAKING UP

But finally one day

Millions of Humans began waking up 

to All that was happening

and tried hard to help change 

the Crisis of Climate on Planet Earth

 

They tried and tried 

but the Governments 

and Big Businesses

Were not Listening

Money was the Leader now

 

Parts of the World were so dry that

Huge fires raged destroying so many Lands

Floods drowned peoples villages and towns

Earthquakes and Tsunami’s flattened Cities and Lives

 

The Children then Rose up

They stopped going to school

because they said 

Without a Future

We do not need school

 

All around the Globe

They marched in the Streets

To wake-up Everyone

to Save the Planet

 

THE FAST TRAIN MONSTER

But still the Government 

and Big Businesses

Were not Listening

They were on a Train

That could Not be Stopped

 

Planet Earth Herself had mines drilled deep into her core

Earth products being sold for money money money

Wars waging between countries worldwide

over these products

And her Beautiful Animals and Plants Being eaten Alive

By the money mind that had taken over the Human Race

 

The Humans simply could not stop themselves

And many were able to blind themselves

From the horrors being inflicted on others

That were beyond their immediate surrounds

 

They simply could Not Stop 

This Monster that they had Created 

THE TINY INVISIBLE BUG THAT STOPPED THE PLANET

 

And Lo and Behold, as in All True Fairy Tales

Suddenly Something Huge Happened

From one of the tiniest creatures on the Planet

Came a Bug that Stopped All Humans in their Tracks

 

Nothing but such a Huge Force could stop the Human Race

Nothing but such a Huge - Larger than Life Force 

From a tiny invisible creature

Could take All the planes out of the Sky

Stop the Vast majority of Cars

Reduce the Pollution Drastically

 

Stop the World from going to work

Give Humans time at Home

With their Loved Ones

Catching up with their Selves

and tending to Home and Life

in ways they had been longing to, forever

And the Government paying them to do so

And Big Businesses offering some help & support

 

HUMAN HORROR

Along with All this also came the Human Horror

Some people feeling lonely and isolated and scared

Fearing Death and Losing Loved Ones

Needing but not having the reassuring touch 

and presence of their loved ones whilst in lock down

 

The shock of the sudden loss of loved ones

Not being able to be with them at their Death bed

In their Hour of Need

Tearing the hearts of surviving Loved ones

 

The huge death toll - massive mortuaries 

in public buildings and tents

to hold many thousands of bodies

 

Ongoing horrifying struggles 

of the war-torn and poorest people on Earth 

being hit even harder 

than their already agonising lives  

In which death 

Sometimes felt like a Blessing

 

All countries on Mothership Earth

Now had the same Invisible Foe

And could not attack back in the usual war-like ways

 

FRONT LINE SOLDIERS - MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS

The front-line soldiers became the Medical professionals

And losing them, could then mean, probably losing All

This was World War III,  Like they Never Imagined

LIFE OUT OF BALANCE

Scientists say it is a Deadly Virus

Spiritual Minds wonder 

If it is the Dis-ease of Humanity

Brought on by the Horror 

of Completely Losing Sight 

of All that Really Matters

to Human Beings in Our Hearts 

 

Being in Balance and Harmony

With Mothership Earth

And All Animals and Plants

All Living Together Respectfully

 

 

THE BIG SLEEP  -  Dreaming the Planet

And those who had Homes

Went inside

And those who didn’t

Huddled up in corners

 

And some went to sleep for one-hundred years

And some went to sleep forever and ever 

And became The Ancestors

And they all dreamed of their beloved Home Earth

And dreamed of Her Healing

And the Plants and Trees growing back again

And the Animals Healing 

Growing their Homes and Communities again

And the waters cleansing all over the Earth

And the Oceans & Creatures

Great and Small

And some people dreamed poems

About Beloved Mothership Earth*

 

 

HEALING MOTHERSHIP  -  PLANET EARTH

 

And When All the Humans woke up again

After one hundred years

Behold, Mothership Earth was Strong and Beautiful

And those who were children

Before the Big Sleep

Were now all Grown up in many Generations

And Knew the Wisdom of Balance

In Nature, Plants, Animals, and Humans

Forever and Ever !

* Kitty O'Meara's

now famous poem

touches the hearts of millions

https://the-daily-round.com/2020/03/

Published here with the Author's permission

"In the Time of Pandemic

And the people stayed home.

And they read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.

And they listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed.

And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

               HOPE OF  LIGHT SHINING  -   GREAT LEARNINGS ALREADY

There is Hope

We are only a few months into this Global crisis

in which All the Countries of the Entire World

For the First time ever in Human History

Share the Very Same Problem 

Struggling Equally and Learning from Each Other

Rather than fighting amongst ourselves

Something Very Different is happening

What have we Learned already?

 

HUMAN LIVES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN MONEY

Governments Globally are following each others’ examples

in implementing changes to cope with the Pandemic

Even from countries with long histories of war and disdain

 

Governments have made it clear that

For the first time in Many Ages

Human Lives are more important than Money

More important than: 

Planes in the air

Billions of commuting cars 

Big Businesses Making Money

And people working in offices

 

The Governments and Big Business have Learned that 

They are Nothing without their People and Workforce

They must take Great Care of them or perhaps Lose All

 

COMMUNITY CARING & ELDERLY RESPECT

The Elders are given respect and priority 

in the healthcare and food shopping queues

 

In Many ways 

Crisis is bringing out the Best in Humankind as well

Communities forming to look after each other

Their elderly, & vulnerable members

 

However and concurrently

If we could only Also Realise 

Our Elders’ - Wealth of Life Experience 

as Wise Words for Disastrous Times

 

Letting the Elderly go

in triage formations

Could be at our own Peril

 

SLOWING DOWN LIVES - MORE NATURE CONNECTIONS

Many people are reporting seeing more wild animals out & about … deer … owl … pheasant ... pygmie shrew !

Creeping out from hiding - maybe feeling safer with fewer humans outside?

People hearing more of the birds singing now because they are not drowned out by traffic noise !

Heard a horse whinnying in the distance today. 

It was beautiful :) Our Nature Connections are Growing !

HUGE REDUCTION IN FUTURE FLYING & POLLUTION?

Huge Reductions in Future Flying & Planet Pollution

With billions of people working from home worldwide

and having successful internet group meetings internationally

INTERNATIONAL INTERNET MEETINGS: WAY OF FUTURE?

Companies are seeing that they don’t have to fly millions of people, internationally anymore

But can save billions of pounds/dollars/etc

NOT flying their people in planes all around the world

But can carry on with internet communications and save mega ‘Big Bucks’ too 

THIS of course could drastically lower pollution levels and probably help Climate Crisis

SCIENTISTS CONFIRM - THE OZONE LAYER IS REPAIRING

 

There are many Lessons Already Being Learned

In a very short period of time thus far

And Many More Lessons to Come

This is Mothership Earth’s - ‘Healing Crisis’

Lets Hope we come out of it Alive

And Ready to work together

with the Plants and Animals

in Healing Our Beloved Home - Planet Earth

 

 

There is still so much more to Learn …

 

What have you noticed so far ?   

 

What Else Are We Learning ?
