the abundance de la madre tierra

There are few things more awe inspiring than the abundance of la madre tierra –> working the soil, planting the organic seed, watering and watching the seed take hold, nurturing itself with the nutrients from the earth, growing strong and producing fruit which we share with our communities.  It is magical how abundant the earth is when we nurture and are in harmony with her.

I have seen houses that are part of the earth, that don’t separate the inside from the outside, that vibrate with the beat of the heart of the world. Does that some how classify as underdeveloped?  Why?  Because we still default to the Western war on nature mindset and lack of vision the European colonizers imposed on us as our measuring tool?  Shake it off!

Like long-lasting light bulbs with mercury in them?  How is that green?  Recycling too is an incredibly dirty industry.  We don’t seem to really get in in terms of sustainability, yet. Human ingenuity and living simply is vast and wide and deep, if we just don’t commodify them.

I keep thinking of that plastic island floating in the Atlantic.

What will it take for us to live sustainably, for the earth to stop trying to rid itself of us, since we live off her like a parasite that slowly saps her of her life, like  a virus.  Hurricanes, volcanos, tsunamis, earthquakes, huge snowstorms are her defenses and her judgement on our civilization, one that is not sustainable.  Can we figure it out?

I’m still thinking of Troy Anthony Davis, lynched by the racist state in Georgia this week. it seems to me that his heart and ours won’t rest until we end put an end to our maddening suicidal tendencies that we too often make real.

We are Troy Davis!
