 We cannot fight and win over a superior power, but the superior-power aggression methods don’t work anyhow.  They never have.  All they do is recycle the toxic sorts of human power trips.  And there is no human power trip that can defeat the superior power of the Biosystem.  The Biosystem response will be to quietly and passively CHANGE until it reaches a new kind of balance that does not include humans.  That’s what WE can do that will work to change the future rather than to just repeat the victim/perp cycle over and over again.  The time has come that we can grow a new kind of human social system that is based in achieving a human-friendly balance of power among ourselves and between ourselves and the Bosystem.

But we cannot do this without reducing the human population because there is no longer enough food to just wait around until we get it right; it would be better if we reduce the population in human-friendly ways, rather than wait for Armageddon.  The only way to do THAT is to discuss the issue among ourselves.  Frankly, I think that is the lesson that God is waiting for us to learn. 


 "Much of what passes as Christianity is a negation of the Sermon on the Mount," Gandhi said in a famous lecture to the YMCA in Ceylon in 1927. Though that still rings true, he helped Christians around the world reclaim the nonviolence of Jesus, and reminded us of the central importance of the Sermon on the Mount.

Bare Bones Biology 153 - Compassionate Earth Walk

The Compassionate Earth Walk is a spiritual pilgrimage

honoring our place within the community of life.

 

The human species is at a crossroads.

Our decisions now will profoundly influence the future of our children and of the whole earth.

 

The Keystone pipeline has become a poignant symbol of the risks of fossil fuels, the tension between economic priorities and human well-being,
and the threat of climate change to all life on earth.

We trace its route through the Great Plains with peace and compassion,

eager to hear all voices, including the wordless voice of the natural world,

blessing the earth with each step,

listening, witnessing, and offering service.

 

We walk as a prayer for all earth's children,

 

The walk is intergenerational, intercultural  and interfaith. 

Join us.

Questions for discussion. 

(1) What is the most important need in my community and who should be involved in a dialog about that issue.

(2) How does this need differ from the needs of the ecosystem?  How do you know what the ecosystem needs?  Which is more important and why?
