In essence the Earth Trust is about healing our connection, our relationship with the Earth, with each other and with our own spirit. One old Aboriginal woman from the desert speaks of “healing ourselves, healing country”.
There is a way that we can live with respect and sustainably. It includes leading edge technology, the careful use of natural resources and good governance. However at the core of all that we do to live sustainably is the way we human beings live in relationship with all life, with the Earth herself.
Today we hear about the crisis with our bee populations around the world.
Bryan Walsh wrote 9 August 2013
“The plight of the bees illustrates our outsized influence on the this planet as we reshape it—consciously and not—to meet our immediate needs. But just because we have this power doesn’t mean we fully understand it, or our impact on our own world. We are a species that increasingly has omnipotence without omniscience. That’s a dangerous combination for the animals and plants that share this planet with us. And eventually, it will be dangerous for us, too.”
