Today is Earth Day, Sunday, 22 April 2012. Earth Day is Mother Nature’s day. Sort of like a planetary Mother’s Day, or a Harmonic Convergence day. It is the way people mark a moment on their calendar to snap briefly out of their habit, think or make symbolic acts of love for mother, for wife, or Earth or to harmonically converge for an hour or so, take a moment – “think” – about enlightenment, hug a tree before habitual habits pursued the rest of the year dominate, finding mother love lacking, the tree you hugged cut down and the hour of harmonic convergence all but forgotten in the day-to-day grind of selfish survival.
Earth Day is a mother of all symbolic and ultimately irrelevant gestures for supporting Mother Nature. One precious day only out of 365 of them. Rather, it would be better to reverse this and celebrate only one day out of 365 called “Forget the Earth” Day, leaving the other 364 days open only to love and mother and harmonic converge our moment-to-moment celebration in attention and action every day, 24/7, forever. Real life is only lived fully in a moment-to-moment chain of attention and love arising from one’s core as a true, spiritual intent and urgency. The planet Earth will thrive when enough people stop pretending to be alive, stop fantasizing love of the Earth and live it.
Love the Earth as you love your Self, this moment, forever.
Right now, we expect from our mother planet that it give of herself to us resources that not even four planet Earths can sustain. Our ultimate mother and nourisher of life is sending us messages that she is upset, that she is hurting, shaking with fevers. We are having our Earth Day Eco-Easter Sunday Christian trip today musing about and worshipping the Earth just one day out of the year. Are we not just like Easter Sunday Christians going to church just on Easter more for their own token gesture towards selfish salvation than love of Christ? Twelve days before our Easter Earth Day, Mother Earth gave us her “Quake Day” on April 11-12 2012. It encapsulated in time an unprecedented eruption of temblors rumbling up and down the Pacific Ring of Fire. Even CNN had to take a five-minute break from its weeks-long obsession with hoodie-shrouded, African American Trayvon Martin’s execution-by-profiling by George Zimmerman the Mexican American Minute Man vigilante community watcher. Shook out of their yellow journalistic reverie they had to make quick mention of the 8.6 magnitude quake off the west coast of Sumatra. They even had to report what followed a few hours later, a prodigious aftershock measuring 8.2, before falling back to suspending all other news so that talking big-headed lawyers could get back to spinning CNN’s new and racially charged “who-done-it”, for rating’s sake!
I rarely watch CNN anymore. I would rather call it DNN (the Dinosaur News Network) because like most cable news, a swelling crowd of people have cut their cable to it and gone online to find real stories about their world. Ratings researchers report that in a year’s time CNN has lost 50 percent of its viewing audience.
I also do most of my research online these days. The only Cable News TV show I watch with any consistency now is RT (Russia Today). I find it actually informative and they do not take the weekend off like most US cable news “nut-works”. Yes, the Kremlin funds it, as CNN likes to complain and like any government or corporate owned network, RT will lose that objectivity when it rubs against the grain of product advertisers and Kremlin policy. For instance, RT goes suddenly myopic when reporting on the street fighting, shelling and massacring of Syrians protesting against the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad. Why? Because the Russian Federation sells up to $4 billion dollar’s worth of military hardware each year to the al-Assad regime. I mean, it is the same reason why pro-America-spinning CNN really never tells or shows us just how bad things are getting for the US occupation in Afghanistan. What an abject disaster it has become, because the US “Kremlins” – the White House and Pentagon – invest billions in sustaining that war market for American military contractors.
Julius Assange of Wikileaks is not silenced on RT and a lot of his leaked and unflattering information was about RT's financiers, the Kremlin. Would CNN and Fox News be so bold for the sake of free speech and government transparency??
Anyway, while CNN just reported the Sumatran quakes before falling back into trying to hype the Trayvon Martin murder as the next racial-riot maker edition of Rodney King and the LA riots of 1992, RT and the Internet news outlets were abuzz with what I define as Mother Nature’s “Day of Hot Temblor Temper”. RT also showed footage of how wide ranging was the shaking across the Indian Ocean region that had people running from the shorelines just in case a new tsunami was approaching not only across western Sumatra but across the Bay of Bengal on the eastern shores of the island nation of Sri Lanka and the eastern shores of India! Fortunately, Mom Nature did not reprise the Boxer Day tsunami of 26 December 2004 that carried off an official death toll of 250,000 and an unofficial toll of 350-to-450,000 souls. Instead, for one day she rang the fault lines of the most active seismic fissures of her planet that stretch from Sumatra, Indonesia, down to New Zealand and arch over from East Asian to North and South American Pacific Shorelines.
She struck the coast off of Oregon with a 5.9 quake that day, then rang the neck of fault lines thousands of miles farther south in Michoacán, Mexico with a 7.1 quake, followed by one slamming the Gulf of California, east of the Mexican Baja Peninsula with a 6.9 tumbler. The former shook skyscrapers across central and southern Mexico. Once again, citizens of Mexico City came running out onto their boulevards to get away from their line dancing towers, just like what happened three weeks before when neighboring Guerrero State was hit by a 7.4 quake. Out in the Far East that day, Tokyo’s skyscrapers joined the Ennosigean dance, with a 6.1 earthquake. (Want to know what Ennosigee means and how Nostradamus uses this classical metaphor as a clue to describe the oncoming 13-year rage of quakes? Click on Nostradamus.)
