Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
This is the sign that is over the front door of Aileen's and my house, our home, going OUT. Meaning that when someone leaves our house they are going into the ACTUAL Mental Ward.

I've always felt that way. When it is considered how much ugliness and killing and hatred there is in the world today, it actually makes perfect sense that this sign is over the door going out of the house.

Because that's where the real mental ward is.

Starving sea lion pups stranding in alarming numbers on Southern California beaches

Starving sea lion pups stranding in alarming numbers on Southern California beaches

I've always felt that if we, humanity, can't be honest about our duty as custodians of each other and this world, then perhaps we don't deserve to have this world.

If we can't do something to help these “other” animals here on earth who are dying so greatly. What does that say about us? What does it say about our understanding of being custodians of this world. Not the owners of this world. For I have never felt that we were, or are.

In my mind, heart and soul, we are custodians. And that means not only custodians of the amazing resources and treasures of this world. But custodians of each other, and the “other” animals, like us, in this world.

I pray to whatever energy there is beyond this world, that we all call by so many different names as God. That we, as humanity, will understand that if we do not respect our duty as  custodians of this world and each other, and all the animals of this world. What does that say about us, as one of the life forms, one of the many animals of this world?

It's not about accepting what you think you can do. It's about reaching up, and taking that leap. That leap inside your heart, your mind and soul. To find out “what” you can do.

And I just know, in my own heart and soul, that we can do better. I just know it.
