The Ending of Eden ?

  It was Here, in one corner of one Tiny Universe...
  Here in one corner, of one Tiny coalescing galaxy...
  That a Tiny little something grew.

 A Perfect Life,
  Reaching for a Perfect Sun,
  in a Perfect Sky.

  It was Here, that in the vacuum of a cold, empty, infinite Universe,
  the endless eternal silence finaly ended as Our Tiny Lives began their song.

  This Fragile Greatness existing Here,

  Only Here,

  and nowhere else in an entire Universe.

Don't let this end .

  Among all the galaxies, this one tiny place remains Beautiful to us, even after the centuries of scars.
  It is our Mother, forever suffering to give Birth, and enduring all, for us.


  ... A Fragile, Interlaced, Intricate Cooperation of Delicate Tissue.


  ... for a Half Billion Years, Life has Spawned, has Loved, and has Fed the future of Life.

  Eon after Eon, enduring all the many obstacles of a Universe,
  Matter and Truth combined Here to Create a Love of Life.
  From its Beginning, that Love of Life has been Creating and Nurturing this World.

  Then, one day,
  To help the children find water in the heat of summer,
  To help the children find food in the frozen winter,
  Humanity invented
Languages to help their beloved children survive,
  Saving millions of lives, over millions of years.

The Beginning of Endings

  But then, using Mere Words, greedy rulers came into power by teaching children Lies,
  Telling them to use, swords, muskets and war, to serve them, and expand their power over Life,
  They Used the children to build cathederals and altars to their own greatness,
  Mere Empires, that force, and enforce, the rulers Lies upon a population of innocence,

  And so, The Ending of Eden began.

  Empires Trained the parents to Train their children into becoming obedient, patriotic, holy crusaders,
  Who, for Empty Promises, would serve only the empire, at the expense of Life,
  These followers of Mere Words becoming the lowest form of Life on Earth,
  Crusading Cannibals, saluting flags and worshiping stone gods. Patriotic Soldiers.
  Citizens of Empires. Worshipers of lies, tossing their virgins into the man made ''volcanoes''.

  So now, we live in our little boxes, ironing our work clothes, and filling out our tax forms,
  Building their weapons, filling their positions, in exchange for permission to exist here,
  Living out our days serving this hungry empire as their soldiers, crusaders, missionaries...
  and slaves.


  As the military camps grew, and the Wisdom of Life faded into obscurity,
  our rulers became ever more powerful, paranoid, controlling, greedy and bold,
  Forcing and enforcing their political, religious, and cannibalistic beliefs upon the people of the earth.


  The Gestapo is now occupying our towns. We labor to build their army.
  We labor to consume our earth. We labor to fuel their killing machines.
  We build and patrol our empire's military bases overseas, to guard their mines, factories and slaves.

  While we labor, their schools pledge, allegiance, and indoctrinate our children into a life of obedient servitude.
  They issue a green paper permiting the obedient children to own the land they were born on.
  Their chemical industry sells us both the poisons and the antidotes that sustain our perpetual struggle and labor.
  Their ''officials'' will issue a white paper permitting the obedient children to own a ''spouse'' and produce more soldiers.
  Their media will distract us, and inform us what to believe, what little to vote for, who to hate, who to invade and who to kill.

  Our time, labor, money, service, lives, and the lives of our children, will be used to build bases and factories overseas.
  Our life will be spent in an escalating war for market share, raw materials, and cheaper slave labor feeding this Vampire.

  The intelligent children who seek an escape from this slavery, will be offered only alcohol, drugs and a bridge to sleep under.
  Liberty will not be tolerated.

  Only the Humans of this earth can save this Eden from our empire,
  by not killing creation over mere flags, mere fables and mere words.

  What will you do to restore your Forest, and your Life in this Eden ?
  And if not you, then who ?
  And if not now, when ?

  Change The World...

  ... or it will change you.

Universal Soldier

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,
He fights with missiles and with spears.
He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,
Been a soldier for a thousand years.

He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
And he knows he shouldn't kill,
And he knows he always will,
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

And he's fighting for Canada,
He's fighting for France,
He's fighting for the USA,
And he's fighting for the Russians,
And he's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

And he's fighting for Democracy,
He's fighting for the Reds,
He says it's for the peace of all.
He's the one who must decide,
Who's to live and who's to die,
And he never sees the writing on the wall.

But without him,
How would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
He's the one who gives his body
As a weapon of the war,
And without him all this killing can't go on.

He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
His orders come from far away no more,
They come from here and there and you and me,
And brothers can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war.


- Donovan

  Someday, Eden may return to the earth...
  and the survivors may begin again.
  But perhaps only after our empires have killed each other.
  Leaving only the meek to inherit the earth.

  For all our sake, may Wisdom prevail and Eden endure.


At this moment, countless millions of people are hugging their PETS.
Why?   Because hugging PETS remains EASY to do.
And hugging each other has been MADE very difficult.

We were TOLD to DIVIDE ourselves by gender, nationality, religions, races, spedies... whatever...
We were TOLD to make ourselves isolated, fearful, hungry, desperate and greedy for Love and Life.
We were TOLD to blame everyone else, even God, for our isolation and deprivation.
We were TOLD that we need weapons and armies to secure our salvation.
We were promised ''Heaven'' and threatened with ''hell' if we did not conquer the world for our rulers.

Our pets KNOW BETTER than to listen to MERE WORDS, and so,
At this moment, countless millions of people are hugging their pets...
... Loving Life in however way they still can.

Countless many are forbidden to see, know, and Love Each other.
So today, millions of lives are needing hugs, just as much as we, and our pets do.
We did not do this to ourselves.
It was done to us by empires needing soldiers for their armies.

Love Created Life.   and that Love was Eden.
That Eden is here... beneath the rubble of our confusion... waiting for Life to return to Loving.

We can only be ''lost'' if we think we need to walk a ''path'' to Eden.
The Truth is, that we should never have left our Eden behind.
Eden is here, all around us, while our attetion is directed elsewhere.
But there is nowhere else in this universe for Life to Live, but back in Eden.
The Creator of our Life.
