There was a time, in the distant memories of the past, when people were more connected to the natural environment. These days, only a few tribes and Shaman around the world still have this connection. The rest of us experience a cold detachment of a few beautiful sunsets, weather conditions that are not always favourable to our chosen activities, and natural disasters we cannot understand. Oh, and not forgetting all those pesky animals needing space to roam free, when we want to use their land for our crops and conurbations.
The Coronovirus pandemic should be a wake-up call and, quite frankly, if commerce, industry and governments don't start acting more responsibly after this, I hope we have another pandemic or disaster which holds us to account.
I have included a few timeless Seth quotes, delivered through Jane Roberts between 1973 and 1980 – but which never lose their relevancy:
"A scientist examining nature studies its exterior, observing the outsideness of nature. Even investigative work involving atoms and molecules, or [theoretical] faster-than-light particles, concerns the particle nature of reality. The scientist does not usually look for nature’s heart."
—The Nature of Mass Events (NoME) Chapter 3: Session 817, January 30, 1978
"You divorce yourselves from nature and nature’s intents far more than the animals do. Nature in its stormy manifestations seems like an adversary. You must either look for reasons outside of yourselves to explain what seems to be nature’s ill intent at such times, or its utter lack of concern."
—NoME Chapter 3: Session 817, January 30, 1978
"As creatures you are a part of nature. The change of thoughts, feelings and beliefs into physical, objectively perceived phenomena is as natural as water changing into ice, for example, or a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. You not only form the structure of your civilizations and social institutions through the transference of beliefs, thoughts and feelings; but in this natural exchange you also help on quite intimate levels in the “psychic manufacture” of the physical environment itself, with all of its great sweeping variety, and yet seasonal stability."
—NoPR Chapter 17: Session 664, May 21, 1973
"Animals do not read or write books, but they do “read” nature directly through the context of their own experience, and through intuitive knowing. Man’s reasoning mind adds an atmosphere to nature, that is as real, say, as the Van Allen Belts (or radiation fields) that surround the earth."
—The Magical Approach (TMA) Session Eight: September 3, 1980
The world's human population is predicted to continue expanding – although I once attended a 'remote viewing' workshop and discovered a significant decrease by 2052. But, whatever happens, we should at least imagine a cleaner and more sustainable environment. We can certainly come up with some great ideas... but whether or not we now have the physical timeframe to implement them, remains to be seen.
"Man likes to think of himself as the caretaker of nature and the world. It is closer to the truth, however, to say — in that regard, at least — that nature is man’s caretaker; or that man exists, physically speaking, as the result of the graceful support of nature and all of its other species."
—TMA Session Eight: September 3, 1980
So how good have we been as joint custodians? It's still going well, then!
Never has there been such a time, of blatant disrespect for our environment.
How many of these people would have a shit on their kitchen table and then sit around it, eating their breakfast? Why do so many people continue to discard their waste, wherever they happen to be sitting or standing? And as I've said in a previous posting – there should be a ban on sending domestic waste to other countries.
"You must return, wiser creatures, to the nature that spawned you — not only as loving caretakers but as partners with the other species of the earth."
"Religious, scientific, medical, and cultural communications stress the existence of danger, minimize the purpose of the species or of any individual member of it, or see mankind as the one erratic, half-insane member of an otherwise orderly realm of nature."
"Your beliefs have generated feelings of unworth. Having artificially separated yourselves from nature, you do not trust it, but often experience it as an adversary. Your religions granted man a soul, while denying any to other species. Your bodies then were relegated to nature and your souls to God, who stood immaculately apart from His creations."
