For several years, I have been receiving Letters from the Earth. Now, she urges me to share them with you. I believe they come deep from the heart of God, the nurturing energy in all of creation. I asked the Earth what to do about denial of climate change and received this letter.
Today I want you to consider two things: 1) Generosity and 2) Denial.
First, I want you to revel with delight in the abundance of nature – of all that I have created for you. Consider the beauty of a mountain, the exquisite delight of new born babies. Let the refreshing scenes of your travels and local landscapes take you into bliss as you enjoy the incredible diversity of your planet. Consider rushing rivers, meandering streams, spraying, cascading, pounding water falls. Focus in to the intricacy of a flower, the miracles of tomatoes ripening on a vine, a spider spinning geometric lace to catch breakfast. Consider your kitty cat purring on your chest and calming you into silence as you sit with me in the morning. I have poured out my generosity for all of you. I love you all, Nancy.
But then, consider denial. Your people on your planet are using up this creation that I took 4.7 billion years to evolve for you. Not only that, but the businesses are hiring PR firms to delude you from the truth of your destructiveness. Environmental safeguards are obstacles to business. Throw them out! Dismantle the EPA. Climate change is a joke. Get rid of alternative energies and anything standing in the way of your fossil fuel companies adding to their store of billions.
But Nancy, denial is dangerous at this time. Your planet teeters on the brink of destruction. Tens of thousands of species are already extinct. You humans will find your own demise if you don’t change your ways.
Please speak, Nancy. Don’t lose heart. I call you and the multitudes to stand up for us all. Never doubt you can make a difference. You already have.
