Our Great Mother, What Does She Require Of Us

Our situation is somewhat bizarre. We are all ectoparasites, living on the surface of an itinerant pioneer, careering through uncharted space at breakneck speeds, spinning and turning as we go. We are not aware of any destination or goal, we can not affect our path and today, we are located in a totally different space to yesterday and we will never return.

We are all 100% dependent on The Big Ball we live on and we have no idea what we are doing here and where our host is taking us, if anywhere at all.

In the big scheme of things, our individual lives are as uncertain as they are unnecessary. We are not as important as we like to think. In fact, unless you are tending to the needs of your host in some way, frankly, you are either irrelevant or just a pain in the ass, a thorn in the side of your provider.

What are the needs of our Mother Earth? What does she require of us? I asked my own mother this question in my early 20’s, when I desperately wanted to enter a period of introspection that I suspected might continue for years and result in me disconnecting from the family circles.

Like any good mother, she told me that she just wanted me to be happy. After I pointed out that this was a hope for me, rather than a requirement of me, she gave it a second thought and decided that she had none. She had no real requirements of me whatsoever.

Likewise, our Great Mother requires nothing of us. We are on a ride, a freebee. We are on the back of someone so much larger and we can do precisely nothing for her. She is so magnificent, so huge and dynamic, with such intelligence that we have barely begun to realise her significance to us, let alone understand her or communicate with her.

The idea that we can assist Planet Earth in some way is insane. We have nothing to give her. All we have to offer is taken from her. We are her. Our duty is to live with her, her way, in unison and harmony – and to enjoy the ride, even celebrate the opportunity she has given us to exist on her.

But we have misconceived an idea of who we are and it has caused us to imagine that we are not a dependent part of Mother Earth, that we are in some way more than that. It is laughable we can deduce that our individuality is more important than our collective nature. It really highlights our lack of intelligence and intuition.

Instead we focus on developing our intellect. We are mind-heavy. Trying to know about stuff, we rub our chins and think a lot. We dig around and study, stare up to the skies and observe and we write books to document things, when almost everything is subjective. Certainly everything is subject to change and everything changes constantly and so in truth, there are very few actual “facts”.

What we call facts are just descriptions of what we think we know about something, that we can not disprove. This of course does not mean to say that any “fact” may one day be disproved or “developed” and then, what was a fact becomes “how we used to think” and so it goes on.

I make no apology to academics when I point out that they are on a fruitless path towards madness unless they are developing their intelligence alongside their intellect.

Intellect is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Intelligence is leaving it out of the fruit salad!

One of the hardest things to accept is that we can not know everything. Our brains are not big enough to be able to perceive this experience as anything more than a “mystery”. This is our best perception, or acceptance. It is a mystery, to us at least and it always will be. The deeper we go, the less it makes sense. It is like ants trying to perceive our world, it is not possible. It is not there designation.

Similarly, no matter how much we develop our brain, there are much higher forces at play all around us, that are well beyond anything we can think about or “feel” in the common sense and yet they dictate our lives. Like the dimensions we live in and the forces that allow us to function within them, as we hurtle through space.

Just some more food for thought…I often wonder if it is our Great Mothers motions within a larger context or body, that actually creates the very dimensions that we perceive and maybe even some more that we don’t?

The point is, while we might as well enjoy the ride we have been blessed with, surely we have to listen to the only request Mother ever has of us and clean up after ourselves! Those of you that ignore her or can not hear her, even when she shouts. Those that have not figured out why cleanliness is regarded as next to godliness and continue to leave a mess in the wake of your actions take heed.

This is extremely unintelligent behaviour and my guess is it will only be tolerated to a point. If we dirty up the surface and affect the atmosphere of the planet too much, everyone will suffer the consequences of Mother shaking us off like an infestation, no exceptions.

Gaia is obviously undertaking a journey and we are with her. Whether or not there is a reason or a destination, we don’t know. If she really is predominantly feminine and she seems to be, it is likely there is no reason for this magnificent movement. The journey may be the point. Purpose will most likely be found within the experience.

If we want it to continue, our only duty is to clean up after ourselves, beginning at the core of our experience, our own body. Clean up the body which decontaminates the mind that governs our actions and we create a harmonious environment and atmosphere around us, which naturally supports our Mother and we will all live happily ever after.
