…we are looking at life through mirrors.

Heaven on Earth

June 8, 2010

Hello fellow wanderers, soul searchers and pacifists; fellow and fallopian sojourners in the hall of mirrors we call the world.

Here is a view at us reflected as a species in the mirror of statistics:

Our garden of soil and toil has become a field of tension and conflict; religious, political, ecological and economic.

Here are a few questions I ask myself:

Has my presence eased or increased the tension and conflict in any of these fields?

Is it me on the map?

Have I broadened my mind, softened my heart and extended a hand?

Have I increased or lessened my demand on the planet?

Is my lifestyle an aggravation or an attenuation of things to come?

The future is now.
