Nature’s agreement with the Earth is a reflection of the Earth’s agreement with the Sun, along with every other planet and every other sun in the galaxy. Galaxies hold unfathomably grandiose agreements with one another that have, can, and will break, from time to time. This breaking of agreements is constant, and when it happens, limitless new agreements come to pass. Time will pass, and your agreement with Nature will act in this chain.
We agree with Nature, disagree, and continue to live and die by its rules. We make agreements with one another and break them. We hurt nature when we break our agreements. Rain and thunder and wind and heat fill the cracks where agreements once existed. We as a race must learn to honor our agreements with one another, and with nature. Everything in agreement will move with confidence behind our conviction.
The object of this piece is to summarize the first impulse that comes to mind when thinking of the last word of the previous sentence. A sentence with structure and wisdom is the most valuable teaching tool we have, because most people learn more from short and simple statements, like aphorisms. I have a book on aphorisms, filled with dogma from the various spiritual icons of our humanity. Humanity has been here for eons, in a thousand variations that have continued to evolve over the years. What is a year, but a man-made ruler for ‘time.’ ‘Time’ itself is not real. Reality is just a construct of our own consciousness. Consciousness, I have learned, is really a collective concept held by all animals on the planet. The planet is made up of a world of different animals, each with a unique trait that makes them special. We, humans are special because we have the power to create, the power to anticipate, and the power to relate all things together. We are all together in this world.
