sharing the planet

I’m still looking for a way to articulate it to my satisfaction, but I wish people were more willing to accept the fact that nature is inherently unsafe. Most people are willing to agree that conservation is a good thing and that large predators like wolves and bears deserve to exist in the wild. But nobody wants to actually share a planet with them. 

Foxes, wolves, coyotes, hawks, eagles, alligators, sharks, whales, snakes, bears, mountain lions… great, right? They’re really cool. They’re part of a healthy and beautiful natural world. No one wants them to go extinct. But… nobody wants to lose livestock, pets, or even children to them, either - of course not! 

It is possible to live side-by-side with potentially dangerous predators - we’ve been doing it for the entirety of human existence. Unfortunately, taking the precautions to protect yourself (as well as children/pets) is inconvenient. Everyone would much rather eliminate risk entirely than factor it into daily consideration. 

“The safest place I know of is my prayers. It is here that I find Yesterdays sleeping soundly and Tomorrows awakening gently. It is here that all those with whom I share this marble planet are remembered. It is here that I ask our shared Beloved to keep you safe when I cannot.” -Nazaneen Kaliwal

I usually don’t mention that I’m vegan, but that has evolved. I think it’s the right time to talk about it because it is a part of a revolutionary perspective – how can we not only discover more compassionate relations with human beings, but how can we develop compassionate relations with the other creatures with whom we share this planet, and that would mean challenging the whole capitalist industrial form of food production.

Amongst all the amazing Japanese cuisine, there’s a little vegan American styled burger shop 😂

moon in 2nd house: lets buy food
mercury in 2nd house: lets buy books
venus in 2nd house: lets buy fashion/makeup
jupiter in 2nd house: lets buy everything
saturn in 2nd house: lets buy nothing and save up

This is true for natal placements but, as I have found, also for transits! whenever venus is transiting my 2nd house, i have a very strong desire to go shopping!! but i have natal saturn so im naturally thrifty.

It is scientifically and mathematically probable that we are not alone in the universe.

On another planet, a child is learning to talk. Thousands, millions, billions of light years away, a man is talking about the one true God. Maybe he is the same God that created our world. Or maybe there is no God, and both planets share a certain, peculiar fashion of ordering the observable universe. The stars on that planet are different, our constellations and theirs completely incomparable. Our speech, not the same, our cultures and creatures not the same. But out there somewhere, there is a child learning to talk, and they will ask the same questions we do.
