Something is not quite right here on Earth. The weather is not what it was like before. People are complaining here and there about extreme cold, heat, floods, storms, etc., etc. No, as I see it there’s nothing wrong with the Earth itself. According to an ancient book I read, it was created with perfection to a dot, as it was designed to sustain “life” in every form; habitable especially for humans.
So, what is wrong? According to the experts, its got to do with Global Warming, whilst the prophets of doom described it as the “End of Days”. Ok, so we got some pictures of whats wrong, but still does not explain the how come? Again, according to the same ancient book I read it is due to the corruptions on land and sea by the people.
I think the most effective way to look at a situation of this sort, is to do that ‘out of the box’ thingy. I’ve learned this from Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot”. His description of the Earth has humbled me down to dust :-
“On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who
ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident
religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward,
every creator and destroyer of civilization, ever king and peasant, every young couple in love,
every moth and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every
corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history
of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
As I see it, this is the ‘how come’ to all the grievances on Earth, and I think each one of us need to paste that ‘pale blue dot’ picture in our homes, offices, public toilets, streets, cars, buses etc., etc., to regain our sanity and humility, which we lost along the way of “progress and development”.
