A thought occurred to me the other day. I’ve spent so much time trying to figure out how to save the world. How to stop companies from polluting the waters, damaging the skies and destroying the environment. Perhaps I’ve overlooked something. Perhaps, we are not the governance of this planet as I once thought we were, meant to care for this world and all of its inhabitants. Perhaps our true nature is to murder this world. If a lion hunts and kills because it is his nature, then perhaps our destruction of this world is ours. Is this what we were created for? Is this our purpose? Perhaps those that want to save this world and care for all life on it are indeed the minority.
I find myself often times wishing I had the power of a God, how quickly I would heal everyone and everything around me, changing fear to comfort and sadness to joy, putting all life back into balance. Then after seeing what humanity does to one another on a daily basis, I realize I might just as quickly burn everyone to the ground.
