Mary Magdalene’s missive in my last blog post ended with this sentence: “We need to see each other as ourselves, and love and respect the energy that is our sameness.” She also meant seeing Mother Earth herself as ourselves, and respecting Her as ourselves. In this writing, she has moved from esoteric thought to a call to action.
Her message is very clear: love and save Mother Earth or all will perish, even the planet. Nothing matters more than this.
Saving Mother Earth is paramount, she said, reiterating that my task is to deliver this message specifically. Every single thing we do, or do not do, impacts the world around us. This concept is the basis of Systems Theory, which is directly related to the Gaia Principle and Quantum Physics, all of which are related to the concepts of connectedness and non-duality Mary Magdalene discussed in my last blog post.
Think about this: “A system is a dynamic order of parts and processes standing in mutual interaction.”
All of Mother Earth is a system of interconnected parts (people, animals, plants, rivers, oceans, dirt – everything you can touch, see, and feel, and some things you can’t, that are too small or too big). All of Mother Earth is a system of interconnected processes (photosynthesis, breathing, weather patterns, composting, birthing, dying, and so much more). All of the system that is Mother Earth is dynamic – alive, moving, changing, evolving – the basic concept of the Gaia Principle.
The key word is mutual. Without reciprocity, a system will reach a state of entropy, and the system will die. For eons, the system that is Mother Earth and all Her beings lived in a state of homeostasis.
No longer. Mutual and reciprocal interactions that maintained balance are going.
But you know all this. You see it every day on the news, and you know it in your heart. And you try – you recycle, you are a vegetarian, you do as much as you can to be a good steward of the land.
Jean Shinoda Bolen, in her wonderful book Urgent Message from Mother: Gather the Women, Save the World writes that the “vessel for personal and planetary evolution is the circle with a spiritual center.” That vessel, I believe, is a container that holds the magic of commitment, the elixir of determination, the essence of connectedness, and the faith of Spirit.
In other words, that vessel is each of us individually, and all of us collectively. We must do what needs to be done to save the planet from a place of connection to Spirit in our hearts, minds, and actions.
We have immense power. We must use it. Mary Magdalene says we must be more and do more, because Mother Earth’s greatest crisis is yet to come, and we must avert it.
We will discuss details of the looming crisis, and what we can do about it, in our next blog post.
Mary Magdalene ends, as she has with every session, “May the light of the divine continue to dwell within you, beloved daughter.”
