Web-of-Life

“Our culture will go vegan, transform, and flourish, or it will continue brutalizing animals, humans, and the earth to its self destruction. We are not the only species on this planet, and we cannot continue to usurp the wisdom of the web of life here.”
— Will Tuttle

Honor the Tree People. You can burn copal resin, the blood of trees, to honor the Tree People for providing our first breath, which is spirit, and to call upon the ancestral spirits for their oversight, insight, and protection. 

“Trees are our closest relatives. What we exhale, they inhale. This is a constant relationship that no one can afford to live without.” —Sadhguru

All too often we are told by liberal environmentalists, and not a few deep ecologists, that it is “we” as a species or, at least, “we” as an amalgam of “anthropocentric” individuals that are responsible for the breakdown of the web of life. I remember an “environmental” presentation staged by the Museum of Natural History in New York during the 1970s in which the public was exposed to a long series of exhibits, each depicting examples of pollution and ecological disruption. The exhibit which closed the presentation carried a startling sign, “The Most Dangerous Animal on Earth.” It consisted simply of a huge mirror which reflected back the person who stood in front of it. I remember a black child standing in front of that mirror while a white school teacher tried to explain the message which this arrogant exhibit tried to convey. Mind you, there was no exhibit of corporate boards of directors planning to deforest a mountainside or of government officials acting in collusion with them.

The practice of shamanism is intimately personal and unique to every individual practitioner. No places, cultures, or peoples own these universal energies or the practices that access them. Animism, the Web of Life, Spirit, and sacredness are omnipresent; they are everything, in everything, and belong to everyone. Your personal, homemade, Spirit-directed ceremony can be just as effective as a traditional cultural ceremony when practiced with heart, focus, energy, and right intention. To effectively practice shamanism in our culture and modern environment we need only wake up to our awareness of self, life-force, energy, and Spirit; reap the rich experiences available to us right here, right now; and make a difference in the world around us.

I want to reinstate a respect for soil. We must touch the soil. How many times do we touch our mobile phone every day? Maybe 100 times. How many times do we touch the soil? Hardly ever. We must give dignity to peasants, farmers and gardeners.

We are all part of this healthy web of life maintained by soil. The Latin word humus means soil. The words human, humility and humus all come from the same root. When humans lose contact with soil, they are no longer humans.

It is the most uncomfortable of truths, but one which stares us in the face: that even the most successful organisms that have ever existed on earth are now being overwhelmed by the titanic scale of the human enterprise, as indeed, is the whole natural world.
—  Michael McCarthy in The Guardian. A giant insect ecosystem is collapsing due to humans. It’s a catastrophe
Insects have triumphed for hundreds of millions of years in every habitat but the ocean. Their success is unparalleled, which makes their disappearance all the more alarming
The Web of Life by Robert Weston

There is a living web that runs through us

to all the universe

Linking us each with each and through all life

On to the distant stars.

Each knows a little corner of the world, and lives

As if this were his all.

We no more see the farther reaches of the threads

Than we see of the future, yet they’re there.

Touch but one thread, no matter which;

The thoughtful eye may trace to distant lands

Its firm continuing strand, yet lose its filaments as they reach out,

But find at last it coming back to him from whom it led.

We move as in a fog, aware of self

But only dimly conscious of the rest

As they are close to us in sight or feeling.

New objects loom up for a time, fade in and out;

Then, sometimes, as we look on unawares, the fog lifts

And there’s the web in shimmering beauty,

Reaching past all horizons. We catch our breath;

Stretch out our eager hands, and then

In comes the fog again, and we go on,

Feeling a little foolish, doubting what we had seen.

The hands were right. The web is real.

Our folly is that we so soon forget.

In September, a chief scientific adviser to the UK government warned* that regulators around the world have falsely assumed that it is safe to use pesticides at industrial scales across landscapes and that the “effects of dosing whole landscapes with chemicals have been largely ignored”.

Damian Carrington in The Guardian. Warning of ‘ecological Armageddon’ after dramatic plunge in insect numbers
Three-quarters of flying insects in nature reserves across Germany have vanished in 25 years, with serious implications for all life on Earth, scientists say

*Assumed safety of pesticide use is false, says top government scientist

Free Reward For You
Why we perceive people who can draw as Gods?

BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE POWER TO DO AND CREATE AT THEIR WILL. Some of them are nice Gods who will hear our prayers. Others, will be punishing Gods who will make us suffer. Some others are like Zeus and all they do is porn stuff…
