Giving Nutrition to Mother Earth

Written by Gede Prama

The historical cycle around the year of 2018 is unique. This is the time, where more people die because of eating too much food rather than people who die from lack of food. Humans who die because of consuming too much sugar, are more than those who die because of war and terrorism. From the spiritual eyes, it is a signal that there are too many unbalanced souls recently. Just wanting the sweet and don’t want the bitter. Just want the delicious, not wanting the non-delicious. Since humans and nature are interrelated, there are many frightening natural disasters here and there. In the last few months, nature has come with frightening earthquakes, scary fires and erupting mountains.

At this time lap, it is very important to remind humanity of returning to an old message from the old holy book: “The human being is the only creation in this realm that can change nature and life through what they think, say and do”. In the scientific world, this statement is justified by many findings. One of the most frequently cited is Dr. Masaru Emoto finding about water particles. When researchers put the word ‘idiot’ in front of the water particles, the face of the water particles was frightening like a demon. When other water particles are shown the word ‘peace’, the face of water particles is very beautiful like a diamond.

As material of contemplation, more than a half of the earth’s surface is water. More than a half of the human body is also water. So it is understandable, in a place where there is a lot of conflict and violence, then nature often gives scary signs. A large tsunami that once destroyed Aceh, Indonesia, is an example. For decades the political elite fought hard and hot about natural wealth there. The very long-lived conflict between Israel and Palestine is another example. The United States with all its power produces a lot of weapons. The results have been recorded in history, the most frightening terrorist attacks took place there in 2001.

From number 2 to number 3

From the perspective of clean and clear mind, people who love peace are actually far more than those who like violence. Sadly, human beings who hold money, power and weapons, whose numbers are far less growing are at figure 2 and at the same time are confused by it. The meaning of figure 2 is duality, right fights against wrong, good against bad, holy against dirty. And almost all humans who hold excessive money and power, consider themselves to be right, good and holy. At the same time, placing different people as wrong, bad and dirty. In the end, they grow from one violence to another. They make nature shake frighteningly.

In this time, it takes beautiful souls to grow from figure 2 to 3. Not to be shaken by number 2 (duality), but to smile beautifully in the middle with number 3. In the world of school generally, children are taught thick analysis with number 2 (duality). Few who learn the synthesis way which is identical to number 3. The presupposition is simple, when a human being dialogues, they look like 3 blind people who meet elephants. The one holding the trunk thinks this creature is a snake. The one holding the elephant’s leg guessed, this is a tree trunk. Those who touch the body of an elephant insists that this is a wall. That’s the way young people learn in many schools. Especially because the analysis-style question (number 2) is who is right. With this type of question, it does not only produce conflict, but also making the dialogue of entering the dark abyss which is far from the truth.

In the world of number 3 (synthesis), the question is not who is right, but what kind of creature which is snake-like in certain part, resembles a tree trunk in another part, and similar to a wall in the other part. With a mind that is far from judgement, far from hostility, then these three answers are synthesized, summarized into a whole and holistic picture, then there is the possibility that humans approaching the truth in the form of elephants. Sadly, there are only few people who are interested to the number 3 approach at this dark age.

And the most important thing behind it is the very old conditioning, where humans are not the good friends of nature, but arrogantly wanting to conquer nature. As archaeologists found in southern France and northern Spain, there is a long cave which is tens of thousands of years old, which contained images of humans conquering animals in particular. Humans sit proudly and gallantly on the bodies of helpless animals. And behind this story is of course number 2: “Humans are right, animals and nature are wrong and lose”.

Once there are defeated human beings, they are put in a place which is far from respect. Even insulted and reviled. This type of conditioning is very old which makes the suicide rate even higher everywhere. In the language of psychologist Carl Jung, people are followed by their own “shadow” of losing and wrong. In meditation sessions it is often seen, thousands of friends who are sick because of this or that have many problems because of this or that, almost all of them create a shadow inside, then being afraid of their own shadow.

There is a shadow of guilt, a sense of sin, not being respected by people, useless or meaningless. In the end, there is a fierce battle between the shadow and the light which is the hallmark of number 2. The beautiful souls who grew up in figure 3 are different, they are not interested in the battle between shadows and light. But they train themselves to dance with the shadow. That is, the shadow is not positioned as wrong and kicked, but it is processed into learning materials that help the soul fly.

He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
