View Full Version : Man & nature - Gulf Oil spill lesson

I ran into this today, while searching for some truths, and found this site to be refreshing.
I noticed it had a page about the Gulf Oil Spill. Please only listen to the message, as it is a
very important one from all of mankind. (don't let the website name get to you).

Answer from Saint Germain, May 28, 2010:

Given that we have now entered the Aquarian age, everything has changed, as I said recently. And that means that everything needs to be re-thought.

You cannot simply take things for granted, you cannot continue with the same mindset that you had in the previous age. You cannot assume that what worked well and what seemed right in the previous age is also going to be right in the Age of Aquarius. This would indeed be a misunderstanding of the shift that has happened with the planet entering the Aquarian age.

Concerning the oil spill, the first thing that needs to be completely rethought is the attitude that human beings have to nature. This attitude is indeed a complete product of the consciousness of separation, whereby human beings have come to see themselves as completely separated from God above and from the material universe here below—and also separated from each other. This, of course, is the cause of the conflict and warfare that you have seen on this planet, but it is also the cause of many other behaviors and actions that can at first seem to be perfectly normal—but are actually not what should be normal, if human beings had a deeper connection to the inner reality that they are spiritual beings and not material beings.

You have – as is always the case in the duality consciousness – two extremes when it comes to people's view of nature. On the one hand you have the view that people are completely separated from nature but that they – either because they are created by God or because they are the most sophisticated life forms produced by evolution – have a right to forcefully subdue nature. This is obviously an aspect of the consciousness of separation, where man sees himself separated from nature, sees himself in conflict with nature, and therefore thinks he has the right to do whatever he needs to do in order to subdue nature and make it do what man thinks nature should do

This is the viewpoint that you see, in this particular situation, represented by the large corporations, such as BP and other oil exploring corporations around the world. They believe that they have a right to do whatever is technologically possible and economically feasible in order to secure the greatest possible profit for the corporations and their shareholders, regardless of the potential risk it has for nature. These corporations do not consider nature at all; they only consider nature in a secondary way in terms of what economic risk it might represent if there is a spill and they have to spend money cleaning it up. In other words, the corporations have no regard for nature whatsoever, as they have no regard for the lives of their own employees—as is also witnessed in this disaster.

The opposite extreme is, of course, the viewpoint taken by the environmental organizations and by many people who over recent decades have become more sensitive to nature but have not found the middle way. Instead, they have been pulled into the opposite dualistic extreme, represented by the environmentalist movement. This is the view that nature is something pristine, something almost sacred—although most of these people are not religious. Therefore, nature existed as some Paradise that was pure before man entered the stage and started messing things up. And thus, it is somehow wrong that human beings have any impact on nature and they should preferably live completely separated from nature and in a way that has minimum impact on nature—whatever that might mean.

Now, on the one hand you will realize that this does represent somewhat of a respect and reverence for nature, yet it is still a respect and reverence that springs from the consciousness of separation, because it again affirms man's separation from nature. Nature is something “out there” that should be kept in some condition that – whether real or imagined – existed before man, especially modern man, entered the stage. Both of these positions sprang from the consciousness of separation, where man sees himself separated from the environment in which he lives, from the planet upon which he lives.

None of these attitudes are sustainable in the Age of Aquarius; none of them will survive in the Golden Age. They must both be transcended before the golden age attitude to nature can become widespread on this planet. What, then, is the middle way that is not between – as a compromise between the dualistic extremes – but transcends the dualistic scale? Well, it is to recognize one simple fact: man is not separated from nature because the connecting link between man and nature is indeed consciousness.
