Hello to all of the CYE.com members. This is Ilchi Lee.
I'm living in New Zealand right now, and I am in one spot on the earth. Where do you live? You also live in a certain spot on the earth. We are neighbors and family living on the same earth at the same time. That's why we're really close.
But if we forget that this earth is our common denominator, we think that we're all living separately. If we truly intend to become one, if humanity is going to become one, we have to know the core value that is the earth.
Over the years, human beings have plucked out many of the earth's resources to use and also recklessly developed and polluted the earth and made it sick. The energy waves from the destruction of the environment perpetrated by humans is inflicting pain upon the plants and animals of the earth, and like a boomerang, it's coming back to humankind. I can't tell you how much it breaks my heart whenever I think about this.
This is because humankind has progressed a civilization that is centered on materialism and selfish desires until now. The circumstances in which humankind currently finds itself are akin to being on a roller coaster where you never know when you might be about to tailspin into a steep drop. If we don't stop here, the future that will be inevitable is obvious. Now, we need to put the brakes on the misdirected systems centered on materialism and selfish desires to slow things down, and then we need to turn our direction to that of the era of spiritual civilization.
This isn't something that any particular country or religion, or any specific figure can appear and handle for us. It's something that can be done when the people who love the earth get together. Who is that? That's us.
This is a simple prayer that I offer with Mother Earth in mind:
"Mother Earth, I love you. Please forgive me. I'm sorry.
From now on, I will live for you, the mother of humanity, the mother of all Life.
We have come to the 21st century earth to save the earth.
We are your children.
I love you. I love you. I love you forever."
and other exercises
to connect with the energy of the earth. Through them, experience the earth beyond your five senses.
I would love for you to post comments sharing how you feel about Mother Earth
or the opinions that arise when you think about suffering and pain of Mother Earth caused by the destruction of the earth's environment resulting from human selfishness and greed.
I formed the Earth Citizen Organization, a gathering of people who love the earth. Our goal is to build a community of 100 million Earth Citizens who rise above challenges to realize peace and sustainability for the Earth. Please join and support us.
