The earth whispered, but you did not hear
The earth spoke but you did not listen
The earth screamed but you turned her off
And so .....I was born

I was not born to punish you...I was born to awaken you.
The earth cried out for help.. massive flooding , but you didn’t listen

Burning fires, but you didn’t listen
Strong hurricanes, but you didn’t listen.
Terrifying tornadoes but you didn’t listen
You still don’t listen to the earth when ocean animals are dying due to pollutants in the waters.
Glaciers are melting at an alarming rate. Severe drought, you didn’t listen to how much negativity the earth is receiving. Non stop greed, you just kept on going with your life. No matter how much hate there was, no  matter how many killings daily... it was more important to get that latest IPhone than worry about what the earth was trying to tell you.

But now I am here and I’ve made this world stop in its tracks
I’ve made YOU finally listen.   I’ve made you take refuge.
I’ve made you stop thinking about materialistic things. Now you are like the earth.  You are only worried about YOUR survival.
How does that feel?

I give you fever, as the fires burn on earth.
I give you respiratory issues... as pollution filled the earth’s air.
I give you weakness as the earth weakens every day
I took away your comforts..your outings... the things you would use to forget about the planet and and it’s pain
And I made the world STOP!

And now...China has better air quality. 

Skys  are clear blue because factories are not spewing pollution into the earth’s air.

The water in Venice is clean because the gondolas that pollute the waters are not being used.

YOU are having to take time to reflect on what is important in your life.
I am not here to punish you, I am  here to awaken you.


When this is all over and I am gone...

please remember these moments...

listen to the earth, listen to your soul, stop polluting the earth, stop caring about material things, stop fighting amongst each other and start loving your neighbours

Start caring about the earth and all it’s creatures.
Start believing in a Creator.... because next time I may come back even stronger!


In an age of questions...

I do not believe…

    …love comes to an end when an ending comes;


I do not believe…

    …hope is useless when we feel useless;


I do not believe…

    …peace is out of touch when we cannot touch others;


I do not believe…

    …belief is all about certainty and not filled with doubts;


I do not believe…

    …stories are only stories rather a way of experiencing truth;


I do not believe…

    …questions are wrong but are invitations into an adventure;


I do not believe…

    …resurrection is a belief, but a relationship;


And I do not believe… 

    …that relationship is only for those that believe.
