A Statement from Mother Nature

I understand many of you in the human race, at least those in the north of what you call the Western Hemisphere, are talking much of the “victims of mother nature” and such notions. The vast majority of these people — in what you call the United States, particularly “the Gulf Coast”, are not My victims, they are your victims. They are the victims of the corruption and callousness of your social organizations — the governments and corporations in which you have organized yourselves, or to which you have allowed yourselves to be cohered.

The increased temperatures resulting from global warming which your shortsighted “economic development” has wrought have, as your computer models predicted, resulted in hurricanes of increased ferocity.

You buildup cities below sea level, where hurricanes regularly go and then attempt to blame Me when there is a flood. You not only flout Me, but you don’t attend to each other. The government of the USA — which claims to represent the people — does not attend to the levees in New Orleans while you spent your resources bombing people in what you call Iraq. Your complaints are worse than the complaints of one who throws a stone straight up in the air and then gets hit with it. Gravity is a given.

Continuously I create the days and seasons which bring forth the miracle of Life. I understand there is very little discussion of that in your “news” media. Reporters talk of the alleged “victims” or the “wrath of mother nature”, but they do not talk of “the wonders of Mother Nature” which are before all of you if you care to see them. I don’t say this for myself, but in the hope that you will understand the realities of this Existence.

It is good that your media — which, if you let them, seem set upon becoming your collective consciousness — have brought you images of your most recent victims. These people are largely the poor of an affluent country -­ victims of your bizarre pecking order based on possession of bits of green paper; of deranged differentiating bases on skin color.

Hopefully, this will increase your caring for other humans on the globe, particularly the poor of poor countries. Maybe you can take a good look, people of the Unites States, at your other victims, most obviously those in Iraq, they cry like the people in New Orleans. Or those starving in Niger, which also has not occurred because of My actions — but inspire of them. It is the economic policies of human, though inhumane, institutions which almost always result in such tragedies.

The government of the United States is called by many a “superpower.” What is power? Trillions of dollars and massive weapons to destroy? That is not power, that is abomination. Bring forth Life — that is Power.

You must look beyond these ways you categorize each other -­ “color”, “nation”, “class”. Then you look beyond your species at all Creation.

Children of the Earth: You need to know one another. You people in the USA particularly need to know the tragedies of war and poverty, even though many of the affluent among you seem willfully oblivious to these tragedies and their role in creating them. You are bent on a suicidal course unless you organize yourselves in different ways. I wonder if such a death might be your tacit choice, but why do you seem intent on endangering so much of the rest of the Earth?
