A War that Should Be Lost

Article written by Dorian Antuna Dorian Antuna for WCP.

The climatic changes are anthropogenic, this is a scientific fact, it’s not the great spirit that provokes the catastrophes but they are generated in the nucleus of certain type of human behavior that is characterized by being violent with nature. Happens that this behavior doesn’t flow with the cycles and rhythms of the planet which becomes the foolishness and distortion of forcing nature to adapt to us and our interests; the greatest interest of all has been the greed for wealth, the sense of Earth’s property through the systematic over exploitation of what nature provides us without retribution.

Our mother, planet earth

Regardless of the limits or laws that the natural system commands, we continue a war against the Earth, a war that should be already lost. The truth is that ahead this vision is destined to defeat, the Earth is not at war against us, nevertheless she has drawn lovingly certain limits, which when crossed, produce lasting droughts, devastating floods or bizarre snowfall. No doubt the Earth is the central topic of human concerns, and yet we have not managed to reach any serious consent or a real interest over our common mother.

Certainly we are taking actions but these decisions are not binding; each one can feel or not concern by the Earth and all the beings that inhabit it according to oneself will. Unlike some countries of South America and India where the Earth is already recognized as a living entity and subject to its own rights, or being in process of like in Europe. The question rather than scientific is ethical, urges a system that brings life, dignity and respect not only to our common home but also to people. This can only be achieved if accompanied by that feeling called spirituality, this has its roots in a warmhearted and sensitive cause calling common sense, because this is the root problem, to put our intelligence with its stupid pride before our spirituality. Spirituality is not only shaped into the human ability of love and friendship but the approach that merge us in the divinity as seeds under the Earth.

We are the now pregnant of future, a future that has to be build inside the wound of dust and under the story of water, to convince the Earth with kisses and caresses, with the shovel and plow convince it to become mud, until to hear the shouting of the spike when the sun shatters the glass of the night that dances in the musical hand of the original sower who sang us before time to give us birth, every human, every flower and every star was a song, a dance, a dream, a poem, everything is a shaman envisioned by the territory, the aquifers, the wetlands, the master hills and the great sidereal mystery.
