The contradictions between what’s of paramount importance and the absurdity of consumerist life-as-usual continue to amplify . . .
This article sent chills up my spine:
Mycologist Paul Stamets tells us that mushrooms will clean up land-based radiation.
What will clean up radioactive contamination of the entire Pacific Ocean?
It appears that all our celebrated techno-fixes are impotent in the face of this unparalleled radioactive disaster.
Remember, the word disaster, dis-aster: to turn away from the stars. Perhaps our focus on the apparently dead and resurrected Comet ISON will begin to return our gaze to the heavens and away from our bloated materialistic drives, as evidenced by the usual insanity shown on Black Friday, when 15,000 people stood in line to get into Macy’s in New York City.
In this context, I deeply appreciate a new post from Laura Bruno that includes a ceremony for the Healing of the Waters.
