Elemental Offerings

Last year I bought a fancy bird bath.

That was stupid. I knew as the sale's clerk was ringing the purchase up, that no bird in its right mind was gonna use the bird bath I was buying. For one thing it was deep. It was sort of two level, with a deeper part in the center. To make matters worse, it was plated in a slick blue coating. I can't imagine a bird with sense is going to walk around on some slick surface, and risk breaking those tiny legs.

Are The Oceans Dying?

Like many of you, I am old enough to have seen the movie "Soylent Green" when it first cam out at the theater. I don't remember it was that scary to me. It was 1973 and I was a sophomore in high school. The idea that we could so ruin the planet that we would be forced to eat our dead wasn't something I took too seriously then.

I do now.

The "Mind Palace" - A First Step in Your GW Mental Skills

Last month's post touched upon the practical matters of Green Wizardry, but there will also be a heavy measure of more eclectic subjects we will discuss. This is the first in a series on the mental and metaphysical disciplines of Green Wizardry, as "I" see them. Hopefully others will be willing to post their thoughts on the matters of the mind and spirit.

(Remember, we support any and all view points and I expect once I have opened this door, we will see quite a few post being introduced on this subject.)

We, as a civilization have seemed to have "lost" our touch to the spiritual. It wasn't that long ago that religion, faith and the mysteries of the spirit was central to everyone's idea of their selves. We knew there was much more to our World than the mere physical realm. We need to relearn that.

When Hope For The Future Dies

While resource depletion, climate change, political instability and economic inequality are all top subjects when we discuss the causes of the coming collapse of our current global civilization, there is one cause that is often not mentioned because of its sensitive nature, and that is "Over Population".

In 2017 the World population stood at 7.6 Billion people. By 2050 that figure is expected to grow to 10 Billion.
