    G’day

    I think we’ve all got a lot to learn from this including you Administration.

    “DESIDERATA”….Les Crane Original.

    Cheers.

    Thank you Squirter. Very wise words in that song and, as you say, we can all learn a lot from them.

    Lovely Squirter keep up the good work. I think this site is getting too negative and perhaps a bit more walking in each others shoes would not go amiss.

    Thank you squirter. a Very appropriate and worthwhile post.

    I wonder if we are of the universe yet or just aspiring to that.
    We are still bound to earth for a few more generations in my opinion and we need to ensure that our children have the opportunity to participate fully in the wonders of our planet without making it inhospitable for human habitation.
    We also need to reduce the rate of species extinction for I see we as a species tend to see ourselves as the be all and end all of life. I wonder if humans became extinct whether sentient species would develop in the next few million years.
    The indications are that humans will be one of those extinctions if we fail to change our ways, and accept that our lifestyles need to be rethought so that we can live with greater dignity, equality and humanity.

    G’day TedE,

    Yes mate, up to a wee while ago your fears were well founded but over very recent times they are slowly being addressed even though you may find this hard to believe. It’s being addressed by the positivity of the people world wide and by the greatest force on earth….’Love’ mate. Love for everything that man, and our planet has been blessed with.

    We, humanity, are evolving quicker now than at any other time in history as evidenced by the introduction of the ‘Indigo’ children in the 80’s-2000, then the ‘Crystal’ children, 2000 and onward, now we are getting the ‘Rainbow’ children. As each of these brackets of children have evolved their conscious level has increased greater than the previous, and certainly greater than us old farts, yes our’s (ole farts) is increasing too Our planet has also been cleaning herself up too over the last 10 odd years….ie earth quakes, volcanoes, floods, and droughts etc….anyway Ted, just hang around for another year or two as more will be revealed and plainly visible and people will say that stupid ole Squirter is not bloody silly after all.

    Hey, and it’s not about religion either. 😉 😉 😉 although it’s right up at the very pointy end.

    Gotta make the confounded bed before Cookie Pooh’s gets home….crikey, I forgot the brekkie dishes too. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: help!!!!

    Hooray fast. 😀

    Haven’t heard the desiderata for years,cheers Squirter.

    ‘I wonder if we are of the universe yet or just aspiring to that.’

    I’ve sometimes thought that perhaps Earth is in fact the insane asylum of the universe. And mused on which country might be the acute ward…. 🙄 🙄

    ‘The indications are that humans will be one of those extinctions if we fail to change our ways, and accept that our lifestyles need to be rethought so that we can live with greater dignity, equality and humanity.’

    Absolutely,TedE. There are a few people now who’ve moved away from cities & highly paying jobs to live a life in the virtual wilderness & others who strive to encourage a better & more sustainable,way of life.
    I think probably more people are becoming aware of the mess we’ve made of our world & see the need to clean it up.
