If we expand our awareness globally, we can see the extent of the destruction and the direction our systems are going in. Yet, why stop at the edges of our world, we can expand the picture further, expand to the furthest reaches of our universe, and why stop there, for there are more dimensions again, vast areas of the unknown in our current understanding of things, that inspire us, prompt us to recede, within an instant, right back into ourselves, our own inner galaxies of planets and moons and diving deeper we find again that there is no end, we find again vast areas of the unknown. Yet, singing and dancing in this mystery, we find therein the heartbeat of everything, love. For who has created the land, and the seas and the skies which we are polluting, who has created the manufacturers of pollutants, who has created the incomparable intricacy and dexterity of the human form, and given it the power to lift a barrel of oil and spill it into our waters. Who has presented us with the magnificence of the human brain, and given it the power and the will to choose to create its own world, all things from the most depraved acts of violence, to the most blissful, ecstatically joyful experiences we can imagine. I send you this message to reassure you that there is love underlying everything and anything that you can perceive. In the end this is what will come shining through. All things will pass, only love will remain, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, love without end amen.
