The world is melting and burning simultaneously and Donny Boy continues to ignore and insult his host, Earth.
His arrogance is the worst kind possible as he fails to realize or care on any level that he and the rest of us would disappear in short order if the planet dies.
I have said that in various ways a hundred times here and elsewhere and i will continue to emphasize the point that EVERYTHING we have including the most important essentials of Air, Water ,and healthy soil to grow food ,is provided by the resources of the planet .
For Trump and others to place their tiny egos above this fact is dangerously and incomprehensibly ignorant .

It is quite apparant that the trump has it’s own agenda, for it’s own purposes, none of which, by the way, is in the least bit good.

The only country that seems to affect Trump is China. These G7 leaders are a bunch of wimps not realizing that this president is a true menace - or maybe they are afraid. A second term will be the final act in this madness.

So they had an emergency meeting and they could only get $20 mil out of it? That is, as Trump would say, Sad. That won’t cover anything!

You had the purest freshest water before the European Culture set foot on the shores of what you call America ( love of riches .) You could drink out of any stream at that time.
Wetiko is destroying our world .

Nature is not the enemy ,it never has been ,all we have to do is create a balance .

I can only offer some solutions …these are unusual but I feel important ideas for the mainstream conversation.We have to raise consciousness to change consciousness ; time to raise a ruckus.
Number 11 is what we are talking about here !

16 Differences Between Highly Evolved Beings (HEBs) and Humans Living in an Unawakened State

In Conversations with God-Book 4: Awaken the Species we are told that there are Highly Evolved Beings who live in another dimension in our universe who are assisting human civilization in its evolutionary process. When asked, “What is the difference in their behaviors and those of humans?”, God replied. “I can give you a list of them.” Here, from the text, is that list. These are the common behaviors of Highly Evolved Beings, as compared to the behaviors of those humans who are living in an unawakened state.

  1. An awakened species sees the Unity of All Life and lives into it. Humans in an unawakened state often deny it or ignore it.

  2. An awakened species tells the truth, always. Humans in an unawakened state too often lie, to themselves as well as others.

  3. An awakened species says one thing and will do what they say. Humans in an unawakened state often say one thing and do another.

  4. An awakened species, having seen and acknowledged what is so, will always do what works. Humans in an unawakened state often do the opposite.

  5. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concepts that humans refer to as “justice” and “punishment.”

  6. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as “insufficiency”

  7. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as “ownership.”

  8. An awakened species shares everything with everyone all the time. Humans in an unawakened state often do not, only sharing with others in limited circumstances.

  9. An awakened species creates a balance between technology and cosmology; between machines and nature. Humans in an unawakened state often do not.

  10. An awakened species would never under any circumstances terminate the current physical expression of another sentient being unless asked directly by that other being to do so. Humans in an unawakened state often kill other humans without that other human requesting them to.

  11. An awakened species would never do anything that could potentially damage or harm the physical environment that supports the members of the species when they are physicalized. Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

  12. An awakened species never poisons itself. Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

  13. An awakened species never competes. Humans in an unawakened state are often in competition with each other.

  14. An awakened species is clear that it needs nothing. Humans in an unawakened state often create a need-based experience.

  15. An awakened species experiences and expresses unconditional love for everyone. Humans in an unawakened state often cannot imagine even a Deity who does this, much less do they do it themselves.

  16. An awakened species has harnessed the power of metaphysics. Humans in an unawakened state often largely ignore it.

=================================

(Each item on the above list is fully explained in the text of CWG-Book 4: Awaken the Species.)

Asked if we might have just a brief example of what is meant by Item #4 , the dialogue offers this, in God’s voice:

If your objective is to live a life of peace, joy, and love, violence does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to live a life of good health and great longevity, consuming dead flesh daily, smoking known carcinogens continuously, and drinking gallons of nerve-deadening, brain-frying liquids like alcohol regularly does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to raise offspring free of violence and rage, placing them directly in front of vivid depictions of violence and rage during their most impressionable years does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to care for Earth and wisely husband her resources, acting as if those resources are limitless does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to discover and cultivate a relationship with a loving Deity so that religion can make a difference in the affairs of humans, then teaching of a god of righteousness, punishment, and terrible retribution does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

Trump may or may not be a fool, but he certainly thinks everyone else is one.
As long as he is making money and none is going out, he could care less about anything other than being adored and obeyed.

Agreed… For anyone who would like to write their representatives:

Trump skips out of discussions on climate and the Democrats Party leadership nixes discussion focused on it, but pundits and the media will demonize anyone who raises the prospect of a Green Party.

Wetiko is an Algonquin word for a cannibalistic spirit that is driven by greed, excess, and selfish consumption (in Ojibwa it is windigo, wintiko in Powhatan). It deludes its host into believing that cannibalizing the life-force of others (others in the broad sense, including animals and other forms of Gaian life) is a logical and morally upright way to live.

While the premise of your post may have valid points those points are devalued by the creation and perpetuation of a “god head myth”. These “god head myths” are the exact reason for why we are where we are today.

I just finished watching “The Big Short”, about the 2008 meltdown. Although we are talking about a different type of meltdown here, they are in fact connected, especially as regards your comment about egos & true ignorance.

I just finished a long and involved discussion with @economagic on another thread, where economics is not in fact economics. In that movie The Big Short one of the principles, Mark Baum, when he suddenly realizes the worldwide implications of what he is witnessing, says he feels sick to his stomach, with all the human suffering and pain it will cause.

In a speech to a group of Wall Streeters, he harangues them unmercifully, saying that the reason fraud is bad is not because it is ‘not nice’, but that it has never, in the end, worked - in the long run.

That’s kind of how I feel these days - knowing the science.

PS: Maybe a note of hope is in order, by America’s former Poet Laureate, Robert Frost:

The Guardian sez:
(Unnamed) Trump officials complained “the summit had moved from core issues such as global economics and trade to ‘niche issues’ such as climate change …”

So … planet Earth is now a “niche?” That’s an upgrade, right?

We need a coalition of all nations that aren’t feeling particularly suicidal to restore what has been taken away. Former rain forests that are now savannah need to be restored to forest. Deserts need to be restored to grassland. Bubbling tundra needs to be restored to frozen tundra. The Arctic Ocean’s ice pack needs to be restored to its original 14 foot thickness, so that it once again reflects summer sunlight back into space. Greenland’s ice sheet needs to be snow white on top, not sooty.

Monotheism has been more destructive and has been used by the powerful to control the masses. It allows a top down form of govt to develop and lets the few and powerful to exert influence in ways to enrich themselves at the expense of Earth and her peoples, human and non-human alike. It places man ahead of nature which we are all part of as clever animals ourselves. Our lower drives have given in over ways to our higher ideals and we will all die because of it. That is, we got lost along the way, in the ways of the West. I’m fearing that it’s too late to avoid a disaster the only question remaining: How bad will it be? Peace

As if it would do any good. I’ve written many, many times and get a nice letter in the mail and nothing I’ve ever asked about gets any consideration. Sorry we’re not represented by our representatives. Really!! Peace
