    Very passionate speech… And I thought the comments on YouTube were intereseting too… I’m torn about this issue…

    I’m wary of insisting that life be a certan way in order for their to be joy or happiness. Even if that means a pristine planet teeming with life and abundance. This kind of insistence also means to live in war with what is.

    And reality is that this planet has duality: it has people who destroy the planet and it has those who work to make it better.

    I see that little girl’s point… I also feel that this planet is meant to encompass multiple realities…

    I know this is probably not a common point of view and I apologize if it doesn’t mesh with your thinking. 🙂

    LOL. I don’t require folks to mesh with my thinking – what a mess that would be! I seldom have a clue what I think. I do think that if you can’t argue both sides of a point you are probably very stuck (spiritually) and a social bore. If I have a way of thinking it is along the lines of Krishnamurti’s “Do you want to know my secret? I don’t mind what happens.” https://scottfree2b.wordpress.com/2007/07/26/a-krishnamurti-story/
    Or The Way of No Thinking by Kunihiro Yamate. Here is another, ”…words are slippery and thought is viscous.
    I’m just happy you are here with some thoughtful comment! Thank you April 🙂
