God so loved the world
… loves the world …
this world, our only home,
ravaged by destructive floods, droughts, deadly wildfires
devastating weather patterns
that are becoming more widespread, intense and persistent.
The new normal!
“We are in the fight of our lives, and we are losing”,
“The era of global warming has ended; the era of global boiling has arrived,” (Guterres)
And we are terrified.
Who will save us from climate hell?
Who will save us from ourselves?
Because we are the ones who are unleashing destruction on the world.
We are responsible
“We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator.”
“Climate change is here. It is terrifying, and it is just the beginning.” (Guterres)
Save us Ancient One
You who, in the beginning, brought everything into being
You who love the world so much.
What must we do?
You tell us: “You know what you must do
You cannot save what you do not love
Love one another as I love you.
You are not separate from nature.
You are one with all that exists.
Kin with all living creatures”
“Free yourselves from the delusion of separateness
and extend your love and compassion
to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty” (Einstein)
“Love this world as I love it.
Then you will save it
You will save yourselves”
Love, only love will save us.
