Gaia - planet Earth

If you think about it, quickly, how do you perceive Gaia, planet Earth, right now in this particular time in history? What is your immediate reaction and response to that? And would you say that you are an animist?

She’s going through a lot right now, having to deal with Monotheistic Religious Tards walking all over the earth, Luckily the Old gods are making a return back to earth and along with that comes the Death of the old Religions and the Revival of the Gods.

Oh, and recycle

Wonderful comment. There is literally no doubt in my mind that you are right about that.

The earth could use a little TLC right now.

"Deep within the shadows, I’m the hungry wolf you fear
But I can see that you are the only evil creature here
Before you came we lived in peace but you brought us death
I sung my pain up to the moon but it’s a waste of breath

Because I don’t speak human, you can’t understand a word I’m saying
I don’t speak human, you can’t understand a word I’m saying

Upon a wing, a flying thing, to you I seem so small
But I look down on what you’ve done, my raven’s eye sees all
You people like a cancer grow, destroying all you see
And 7 billions mutant monkeys wont listen to me

Because I don’t speak human, you can’t understand a word I’m saying
I don’t speak human, you can’t undersrand a word I’m saying

I won’t run this human race, your war is not for me
I hear the voices from the wild, they taught me how to see
It’s us who are the strangers here and we don’t own the land
My words they fall upon deaf ears, cause no-one understands

Because I don’ t speak human, you can’t understand a word I’m saying
I don’t speak human, you can’t understand a word I’m saying

Now you tell me that I’m wrong and animals don’t feel
You say the earth is not alive and only we are real
You try to tell me to behave, that I must act like you
But I just stick my fingers in my ears and say: Fuck you

'Cause I don’t speak human, I can’t uderstand a word you’re saying
Because I don’t speak human, I can’t understand a word you’re saying
I don’t speak human, I can’t understand a word you’re saying
Because I don’t speak human, I can’t understand a word you’re saying
I don’t speak human, I can’t understand a word you’re saying"

Little bit of hippie music from Omnia.

Little changes we can all make that will help out and those little changes build and build.

Yes, nice assault on human-centric delusions in those lyrics.

I’m concerned about the levels of plastic in the ocean. If we don’t change soon there will be more plastic than fish by 2050

Yes, it is an insane thought.

The term your looking for is Anthropocentric darling.

I used that elsewhere. I am flexible like that. :slight_smile:

I do perceive the earth as its own entity, as well as being akin to the Gnostic Sophia, who I also conflate with Frau Holle, since I lean towards the Urglaawe branch of Heathenry (though because of my practices don’t think I am a model of what Urglaawe looks like).

Anyway, whatever you want to call her, she is moody as hell. Angry? Depressed? Hard to say. But she is I’ll treated. Actually I don’t think angry is the right word. She knows that long after we are gone she will still heal in time.

I do my best, try to be environmentally conscious. And yes. I do consider myself an animist.

I don’t think the docile pregnant woman portrayal of Mother Earth is a true representation at all. It’s a romanticization of nature. War, plagues, destruction, death, all that is nature to. People are so detached from the Earth that they don’t have a whole and accurate idea of her. Instead seeing her as this onmibenevolent nurturing personality. Respecting the Earth means not taking away her teeth and claws just as much as being concious of the effects of what we do in my opinion.

I agree completely. I lived out in the sticks for most of my life. Spent ALOT of my youth playing in the forest and marsh. If you are not careful and don’t respect Nature you will get killed, be it snake bite, mama bear, alligator, or quick sand.
