As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The truth is that I have always thought about the idea of nature being able to replenish itself. For example if you prune a plant, or cut some of the branches from a tree, the branches will begin to grow again, in some or most cases from different angles. You can even think from the level of a minor bruise or a cut. The bruise will heal over time, and with the elements of air the cut will also heal with time. If we go deeper, lets think of a tree.
A tree provides us with shade in the summer, and even warmth in the winter. There is growth, greenery, or colors depending on the type of tree. It breathes in Carbon Dioxide, so we can have cleaner air, they are appealing to the eye. They can grow fruits. We can build tree houses, or even swings that contribute to recreational needs. We can plant flowers, and create green living spaces around them. I am sure that if we ask an expert in the field, we'll learn more of the benefits. There is so much beauty, treasure and resources to be found in nature, above and below sea level. The trick is really: how can we find and use them for the good, to aim for minimal harm to the environment?
These thoughts can be related to what Buckminister Fuller had to say, often he was referred to as Bucky. He was fascinated with the environment, Earth, and invention. He truly believed in the power of the Earth's resources, but he was also concerned about the conservations. He says: "Earth is the beneficiary of far more physical wealth that is generally realized" (Gerber, 2012).
Humanity's cosmic -energy income account consists entirely of our gravity - and - star (99 percent sun) distributed cosmic dividends of waterpower, tidal power, wave power, wind power, vegetation - produced alcohols, methane gas, vulcanism, and so on. Humainty's present rate of total energy consumption amounts to only four millionth of 1 percent of the rate of it's energy income.
The enormity of Earth's energy income, when regarded as a whole, has profound social, economic, environmental, and educational implications.
From the above thoughts we can derive that human's don't really understand the potential of the Earth we live in. Bucky also wrote about wars, and wanted to move from a point of "weaponry to livingry" (2012). Today we see how the Earth is being exploited for destruction. Political regimes continue to test weapons, as a showing of strength, for what are tools to destroy and destruct human beings and the Earth. Rather than ensuring human survival, they are engaged in processes to destroy. The mass populations and groups who are engaged in conservations, simply see their efforts being wasted when there is mass destruction. It is truly time to seek solutions, why not extend hands for friendship, and engage in what Bucky called "Livingry"?
Dedication: These thoughts are dedicated to all 22, 000 who were evacuated from a stage at the Spanish Music festival in Spain, where there was a massive fire on stage. Our thoughts of love & kindness.
Notes: These thoughts were originally hand - written on July 30th, 2017. They are also related to my studies that took place in 2014.
