WEATHER

Why is the weather so bad? A lot of people think it's worse this year, than it was last year. Is it worse than last year?

Earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, tornado's, blizzards, freezing temperatures, melting polar ice caps, epidemics, Flu, Cholera, Aids, wars, poverty, starvation. parched lands, people running out of water ... Is all this bad stuff that's going on, God's way of handling, cutting down the world's exploding population?

I was not brought up with a God, or Jesus, or any religion helping me to understand life and death, though I read and heard the Bible stories. The child in me wonders if God is angry because we are destroying the earth, the air, everything that's alive, and also destroying the precious things of past history that still exist as monuments to remind us what the world was.

I can't not worry. Every day, throughout the day, we hear weather news -- about the temperature, humidity, wind speed, and how much sunshine there will be -- and of course the probabilities, and predictions, of what may happen tomorrow, or on the weekend.

The announcers are mostly nice-looking normal people -- expert speakers with good diction, fast minds -- capable of going with the flow of what's on their scripts, or spur-of-the-moment, reacting to news flashes about unexpected, possibly dangerous. not good developments that can be seen on their sources (that we don't see).

We are seeing easy-to-grasp maps of our country, and lists of the major cities of world, with their Farenheit/Celsius temperatures, and learning if airplanes are arriving and departing on time, or delayed or canceled.

When the weather news is on, I am off into thoughts about what to wear and do I need an umbrella, and as the report develops into detailed colorful pictures, I'm wondering about ...

Forty days and forty nights, Noah's Ark, Sodom and Gomorrah, and God's power to punish mankind with what we've got now with freezing temperatures, and what will come with next summer's heat waves.

Yes, I think God is telling us, commanding those who believe in Him, to stop hurting each other, stop selfishness, murder, sin, neglect -- warning us about morality/immorality, and yesterday's headlines that are every day more so and worse. That's HIM telling us -- pay attention to what's happening, stop the wrangling and babbling, and stop, stop the big wars, the small wars, yes-yes -- stop-stop-stop KILLING YOUR WORLD.

There are too many people that have worked against all odds to be here right now. Children, toddlers, that have overcome the worst case scenario's and fought from the second they were able. I have to believe that those individuals, babies that were in the NICU for the first three months and longer of their lives, are here for a reason. They are here now to offer us hope and a brighter, better future. Of course that could be switched into them being here to help guide us all into the coming unknown. But there's just too much life energy in their eyes to believe that the good they'll do and the reasons they fought (and won) were only to get here and die out with the rest of us.

The Earth has always undergone radical shifts in temperatures and weather patterns since the beginning of time.

The difference now is that humans have contributed to the shifts by poisoning the air, gouging the land, damming the rivers and layering everything in cement.

I believe we are in transitional times, like teenagers who are being called to clean up our rooms and answer to a higher authority these times we are in are necessary for humanity to get over the ridiculous notion that we have 'dominion' over the kingdoms when actually we are as vulnerable and powerless as field mice when Nature demands to be heard.

Here in Australia a large part of the country is under water and many people are Awakening for the first time to what the Aboriginal people have always known...that we must walk lightly on the Earth and LISTEN to what She is telling us...

We need to pay attention to our weather. I woke up this morning and the thermometer read -9F! Extremes in the summer and winter; it's all very unusual. Then the idiots on the news get started talking about each single storm as though the apocalypse had drawn nigh. And what do we see next? Thousands of folks scrambling for five gallons of milk the don't need.
