Question: I was watching a video about the environment and I am feeling a little confused. Some say that planet Earth is capable of handling a lot and is fine and some say the opposite. Do we really have to do something to help or will it take care of itself?... I was feeling very sad that the planet could be in a very bad condition and it could get worse. What do you feel about that ?
Answer: From the perspective of the absolute, the deepest truth, everything is always perfect. Everything is divine, both the light and the dark, and everything is one.
However, recognising this doesn't mean that we should negate the human experience and the physical world. It doesn't mean that we sit in lotus position all day chanting om while our rainforests are destroyed and our drinking water is polluted.
Sometimes action is needed and what is most important is the energetic origin of that action. When action is taken from a space of inner being it is infused with a higher power. It is infused with the divine. This is the energy that births creativity and innovations and this is the gentle power that brings transformation.
The action that we take is an extension of our energetic state of being. If we identify with anger and sadness that arise in us when we hear about greed and destruction on our planet, and we then take action from that state of identification, everything we touch will be infused with those energies. We will emanate aggression and violence and a sense of powerlessness and victimhood and we will unknowingly add to the pain and trauma on the planet.
However, if we first meet the anger and sadness that arise with gentle, unconditional love and we fully allow the feelings by welcoming them and feeling them deeply in a space of presence, we can open to the infinite, eternal peace beyond the emotion. We open the gateway to the divine and that higher consciousness fills our Being. From this space we recognize our connectedness with the whole universe and we feel a deep peace within. This is the time to speak our truth and to take action. From this space our words carry a different vibration and a gentle power. We speak and move from peace because we are an embodiment of that peace and we are able to contribute to the transformation of higher consciousness on our planet.
In this way we become a bridge between the infinite perfection and the finite imperfection, the form and the formless. We find balance within our Being and this balance brings harmony to our physical world. ~ Louise
