The Living Planet Earth
By James Donahue
God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” Gen. 1:24
an understanding of how the process of the creation of life occurred we must, essentially, experience a paradigm shift. That
is, we must throw out all of the false concepts of an external god figure commanding living things to emerge from the mud
of the Earth. These false images were implanted in our heads by organized religion since we were children. We need, instead,
to adopt a more pagan way of thinking.
recognize our planet as a living, sentient being. The Native Americans call her the Mother Earth, and they are quite correct.
It is correct
that it was from the soil of the Mother Earth that all life now existing on this planet, and that ever existed here, sprang.
And because nothing in nature is wasted, it is back to the soil that the bodies return when life ends. Throughout our lives
our bodies constantly rebuild living cells and tissue. In the same way, the Earth creates and recreates a variety of life
during its lifetime.
larger perspective, we also must envision the Earth is a part of a living Universe. Life of all forms exists throughout the
universe. Our astronomers see it in the constant movement of the stars, the planets and the moons. We see it in the motion
of the galaxies. Everything is in motion everywhere we look.
from the distant stars is recorded history. It takes millions of years for it to reach our eyes. Understanding this may help
us grasp the concept of information. That is what the universe and all of the things in seem to be all about. We are part
of a complex information system. For whatever reason, that is the purpose of our existence.
heard it said that humans were created for a very special purpose . . . to see and place information in a collective subconscious
library of data that makes it possible for the universe to achieve self awareness.
not, then, products of the universe itself? Is the universe not the great energy that we refer to as God? From this perspective,
we are but minute cells blinking for but a brief moment. We are gods within the God. Collectively we find ourselves but part
of the eye, or perhaps the ear of the body. Because we are no more than ants in the yard, we find it impossible to grasp the
significance of the whole. Yet our roles may be more vital than we can perceive. Without each of us existing and doing our
part, the whole fails to function as effectively as intended.
our arrival on this planet there was creation. The Mother Earth built a beautiful and perfect garden for us to live. This
included not only the grass, trees and scrubs, but flowers, birds, fish, and animals.
Earth alone in this project? It is unlikely. That we are visited by the lights of ships from other worlds is now clearly evident.
Life exists everywhere. That life appears to be very interested in our welfare, or at least saving a fragment of humanity
now that we have destroyed the garden.
not be another world quite like this one, however. Why else would Lucifer travel from so far and go to so much trouble to
plant his DNA in humanoid creatures on this planet?
the Luciferian race go to all the trouble to help a remnant of the human and animal races escape from the catastrophic events
that threatened human extinction at the time of Noah?
that the existence of humans was an important experiment that has failed at least twice, if not more times than we know. Can
we expect alien intervention again, or will the Universe choose to write us off this time?
