On this World Water Day 2017, the one on which clean water access for humans is revered, may we remember the absolute necessity of clean water access for the Earth. Water is LIFE, and no more so for humans than for this precious planet of which we are members & inhabitants. Water is SPIRIT, lubricating LIFE FORCE into action.
While Pacha Mamma is highly sophisticated at dealing with contaminated water, her threshold of tolerance only goes so far. Humans are insidiously manipulating fresh water at an extent we cannot fully understand.
Ancient aquifers are tapped to water cash crops of inefficient monocultures grown in a cocktail of chemicals.
Fresh water is treated to drinking water standard into which we deposit our human waste, contaminating the water, and then sending it to a treatment plant to be transformed by another energy intensive process to then be sent out to sea.
Vast expanses of waterways & systems are threatened by industrial contamination & oil spills, victim to human error & misjudgement.
May we humans understand the responsibility we have to the greater whole to which we are but parts. Should we respect that responsibility, we have opportunity to continue to live in this abundant & divine world with much fulfilment & empowerment. Should that responsibility be disrespected, we will continue to see Life's systems failing, their life force & spirit clogged with the externalities of humans linearly designed systems.
Water is LIFE ~ may we use it with reverence & gratitude, always ~
