A Concert of All Life

Every single form of life on this planet is a predominant species on at least one other planet, including human beings.

Human beings, because of our tendency to keep written records, have a tendency to build up over time - not everyone but many people - a compendium suggesting that somehow we’re the chosen ones and we’re in charge here but in fact it is not so.

A great many of the other species on this planet are through various means, partly with the sounds they make, partly with the motions they make, very influential with Mother Earth to keep her revolving and to keep her as hospitable as she is towards all life here.

So, just because we don’t know what they’re doing doesn’t mean that they aren’t doing it. They are doing it and yet now many of them feel unwelcome here and to a degree it has to do with simply their time to no longer be present here on this planet but to a significant influence now, at least say what you might call 15%, it has to do with us as human beings infringing upon their well-being either because of our own needs that take the form of mining and drilling and doing other things to the planet in order to serve our needs or simply because of our numbers that we need someplace to live we are infringing on their way of being.

There may not be much we can do about some of that infringing because we are growing as a people and yet there are some things we can do to begin with and that is to be more respectful of other forms of life even if we don’t understand why they do what they do.

So, for starters I would like you to consider if you feel a certain attraction to a form of life, if you like the way they look - it doesn’t mean that you must go out into nature someplace and hug one of them. It does mean that this is a message from your inner spirit to let you know that this form of life is in some way contributing to the well-being of all beings on this planet.

You don’t have to turn them into a deity for yourself but it is good to know that they are not the only form of life other then human beings that you and others might feel good about.

Many forms of life you can see - there are some that you cannot see because they are microscopic or for the most part not on the surface of the planet. They might be deep in the sea or they might be underground. So just know that there are many forms of life here that are looking after all other forms of life just by being and that it is a good thing to have gratefulness for their being here.

Now you might reasonably ask, is there something we as human beings are doing to look after other forms of life. Yes, at the very deepest levels of our dreams we produce a rhythmic type of breath breathing and that breath does support all life.

I thought it might be good for you to know this and that’s why I’m passing on this wisdom to you today.

It is good to know - thanks Robert. I feel much closer to the other beings since reading your books - it is wonderful...but sort of awful too. Empathy has it's downside!
