Opinion: The Pope reads and echoes Billy Meier Spirit Teaching

September 18, 2020

ROME — Pope Francis said Wednesday that the earth, sea, and all creatures possess a “mystical capacity” to bring humanity to God and into communion with nature.

As many spiritual masters have taught us*, heaven, earth, sea, and every creature have an iconic capacity or mystical capacity to bring us back to the Creator and to communion with creation,” the pontiff wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

*direct reference to Billy Eduard Albert Meier, THE spiritual master

Also on Wednesday, Pope Francis once again lamented the negative effects of global warming, insisting that it would generate “many, many difficulties.”

“Today I was reading in the newspaper about those two great glaciers in Antarctica, near the Amundsen Sea: they are about to fall,” he said. “It will be terrible, because the sea level will rise and this will bring many, many difficulties and cause so much harm.”

“And why? Because of global warming, not caring for the environment, not caring for the common home,” the pope told pilgrims gathered in the Vatican’s San Damaso courtyard for his weekly general audience.

All forms of life are interconnected, and our health depends on that of the ecosystems that God created and entrusted to us to care for,” the pope stated. “Abusing them, on the other hand, is a grave sin that damages us, and harms us, and makes us sick.”

“Exploiting creation: this is the sin,” Francis said. “We believe that we are at the centre, claiming to occupy God’s place and so we ruin the harmony of creation, the harmony of God’s plan.”

“We become predators, forgetting our vocation as custodians of life,” he said. “Of course, we can and must work the earth so as to live and to develop. But work is not synonymous with exploitation, and it is always accompanied by care: ploughing and protecting, working and caring… This is our mission.”

“Our poorest brothers and sisters and our mother earth lament for the damage and injustice we have caused, and demand we take another course,” he said. “It demands of us a conversion, a change of path; taking care of the earth too, of creation.”

This is the second time in about a month, since the Pope used the term “the Creation”, referring to the Creational Universal Consciousness, and not a god or tin god.

5) And as you create descendants, it shall be done in the measure of insight (rationality) so that the standard measure of the number of all peoples (humankind) does not get out of control in a very bad wise and result in immoderateness (overpopulation) and the world and its weathers, the appearance (nature) and all life on Earth do not suffer great and lasting damage (destruction of the environment/destruction of the climate/extinction of forms of life/wars/crimes, etc.); therefore, the recommendation of insight (rationality) and of control over extent is given for obedience (following) so that no calamity may come over you and your world; consequently, it is recommended that you keep yourselves within bounds (limits) and manage (monitor) the standard measure of the number of all peoples and that you undertake (carry out) a measurement (census) every certain number of years so that the measure of all inhabitants of Earth does not become too great and remains within the number of the maintainable (supportable) without leading to harm (529 million).

130) And cultivate your land and the whole Earth without tormenting and destroying it, and be admonished to do this because otherwise it will raise itself up against you and bring you unweather, high waters, enormous storms, fire and drought, as well as dearths of fruits and other provision (food).

131) See that only good comes to you from Earth, as it will be and as it is due to you (as you are entitled to) when you strive for it; do at all times rightfully with your world so that no calamity comes (breaks in) over you from it for which you yourselves are to blame; consider that if calamity comes (breaks in) over you that you alone are to blame for it, even if most of you do not know it, because you do not care about the laws of condition (cause) and of decision (effect = cause and effect).

132) See the signs of your appearance (nature) and allow yourselves to be captivated (influenced) by them so that you recognise that the earth with its laws of its appearance (nature) will not submit to you, but that you must fall in line with it (integrate yourselves) in order to spend your existence (life) in togetherness with it, and to obtain (draw) the best gains (effects) from it.

133) Therefore consider: Whatever you do with your earth, it will never submit to you.

134) And be certain (knowing) that if you do not do rightfully with your world and with all people of your kind (human kind) then grievances (vexations) will come over you, such as great storms and high waters, and you will be oppressed (plagued) by locusts, by lice and frogs, as well as by scourges (plagues) and vermin and many kinds of life (life forms) and people of your kind (human beings) who change into deformed ones (mutated ones) for which you are to blame and spread torment; therefore do not be arrogant (vain) and do not commit outrages (misdemeanours) against the appearance (nature) or against the laws and recommendations of the wellspring of the love (Creation) so that no calamity comes over you.

NEW: LISTEN TO THE GOBLET OF THE TRUTH

World wildlife plummets more than two-thirds in 50 years

September 10, 2020

MSN, AFP: Global animal, bird and fish populations have plummeted more than two-thirds in less than 50 years due to rampant over-consumption, experts said Thursday in a stark warning to save nature in order to save ourselves.

Human activity has severely degraded three quarters of all land and 40 percent of Earth’s oceans, and our quickening destruction of nature is likely to have untold consequences on our health and livelihoods. 

The Living Planet Index, which tracks more than 4,000 species of vertebrates, warned that increasing deforestation and agricultural expansion were the key drivers behind a 68 percent average decline in populations between 1970 and 2016. 

It warned that continued natural habitat loss increased the risk of future pandemics as humans expand their presence into ever closer contact with wild animals.

“In 2016 we documented a 60 percent decline, now we have a 70 percent decline. 

“All this is in a blink of an eye compared to the millions of years that many species have been living on the planet,” Lambertini added.

The last half-decade has seen unprecedented economic growth underpinned by an explosion in global consumption of natural resources. 

Whereas until 1970, humanity’s ecological footprint was smaller than the Earth’s capacity to regenerate resources, the WWF now calculates we are over using the planet’s capacity by more than half. 

While aided by factors such as invasive species and pollution, the biggest single driver of species lost is land-use changes: normally, industry converting forests or grasslands into farms. 

But it also requires unsustainable levels of resources to uphold: one third of all land mass and three quarters of all freshwater are now dedicated to producing food.

The picture is equally dire in the ocean, where 75 percent of fish stocks are over exploited.

And while wildlife is declining rapidly, species are disappearing faster in some places than others. 

The index showed that the tropical regions of Central and South America had seen a 94 percent fall in species since 1970. 

“It is staggering. It is ultimately an indicator of our impact on the natural world,” said Lambertini.

Top News Headline – Control Population to Save the Planet

November 5, 2019

If I drive on the road, can I go 120 MPH wherever I want?

If I owned a gun, can I have any weapon and unlimited ammo?

Everything needs some form of limit or control, otherwise the world

would be a lawless planet.  Everything in moderation, right?

Why should someone be allowed to have 10 children if the world is already overpopulated?  Can someone argue that they NEED to have 10 kids?

disclosure drudge 11.5.19

https://ca.finance.yahoo.com/news/population-control-critical-part-climate-150004993.html

The earth does need fewer people. But no one has to die or be killed.  We just need reasonable limits on family sizes.  No one “accidentally” had 10 kids.

In the last 40 years, the human population doubled.  You know what didn’t double?  The size of our planet.

Cause, effect.

Scientists’ warning to humanity on insect extinctions

5. Build an insect hotel with small horizontal holes that can become their nests

Michael Horn July 8th, 2019:

Welcome to the Insect Hotel

Insect Hotels

Here’s some information from Christian Frehner, in Switzerland, pertaining to some of the insect hotels he’s built for the FIGU center:

“The two attached photos are showing two of my insect hotels. The one on the left (top) I made myself (clay stuffed in a wooden box and bamboo sticks sticking into it). This is an ongoing experiment. Some of the sticks are already in use. The insect hotel on the right side (bottom) is one I bought. What you can see in the other photo is that “my wild bees” like the small tubes (bamboo, etc.) the best. Several of the tubes are already filled with eggs and closed with sand and saliva. And they also like and use the birch wood branches sticks with small holes drilled into them. Most of the holes are already occupied.”*

July 1st, 2019:

For almost 30 years they passed as quirky eccentrics, diligently setting up their insect traps in the Rhine countryside to collect tens of millions of bugs and creepy crawlers.

Now the group of German entomology enthusiasts can boast a world-class scientific treasure: evidence of what is described as one of Earth’s worst extinction phases since the dinosaurs vanished.

Insects, which comprise two thirds of all terrestrial species, have been dying off at alarming rates, with disastrous impacts on food chains and habitats, researchers say.

“…the total biomass of flying insects here has plummeted by 76 percent.”

“We only became aware of the seriousness of this decline in 2011, and every year since then we have seen it get worse,” says Sorg, the man who sounded the alarm.

On one side of the road lies a protected nature reserve. On the other, a sugar beet field is being sprayed with pesticides by an agricultural machine.

“You see, protected reserves are not so protected,” says Sorg.

Across the border, Kroon says, “we must realise that here in western Europe our nature is getting smaller, the agriculture fields are very hostile to insects. There is no food, they get poisoned.

“And nature areas are also more and more isolated. Insects can’t move from one place to another, it’s too far away.”

They calculated that over 40 percent of insect species are threatened with extinction, and each year about one percent is added to the list.

This is equivalent, they noted, to “the most massive extinction episode” since the dinosaurs disappeared.

The main drivers appeared to be habitat loss and land conversion to intensive agriculture and urbanisation, followed by pollution, mainly from pesticides and fertilisers, invasive species and climate change.

“The conclusion is clear,” they wrote.

“Unless we change our ways of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades.”

Updated: Prince William – Overpopulation…the biggest challenge

November 3, 2017

11.13.17:  15,000 scientists now agree with Billy Meier’s warnings:

“By failing to adequately limit population growth, reassess the role of an economy rooted in growth, reduce greenhouse gases, incentivise renewable energy, protect habitat, restore ecosystems, curb pollution, halt defaunation, and constrain invasive alien species, humanity is not taking the urgent steps needed to safeguard our imperilled biosphere.”

“We are jeopardising our future by not reining in our intense but geographically and demographically uneven material consumption and by not perceiving continued rapid population growth as a primary driver behind many ecological and even societal threats.”

Rapidly growing human populations [now 8.8 BILLLION] risk having a “terrible impact” on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned.

The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under “enormous pressure” and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour.

His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated

“voluntary family limitation” as a means of solving overpopulation,

which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation.

His grandson, royal patron of the Tusk Trust, told the charity’s gala dinner in London that measures needed to be taken to save certain animal populations.

“In my lifetime, we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half,” he said.

Heat stress escalates in cities under global warming

Heatwaves are intensifying in cities due to the double whammy of the urban heat island effect and global warming, according to a new study.

The study’s authors used computer models to simulate with unprecedented detail the changes through the mid-21st century in Belgian cities. They found that heatwaves become hotter, longer and more frequent because of , and that temperature above the stress alarm level increases by a factor of between 1.4 and 15 by the middle of this century.

Ship exhaust makes oceanic thunderstorms more intense

Thunderstorms directly above two of the world’s busiest shipping lanes are significantly more powerful than storms in areas of the ocean where ships don’t travel, according to new research.

80 Percent of City Dwellers Breathe Bad Air

May 12, 2016

Over 80 percent of the world’s city dwellers breathe poor quality air, increasing their risk of lung cancer and other life-threatening diseases, a new World Health Organization (WHO) report warned Thursday.

Urban residents in poor countries are by far the worst affected, WHO said, noting that nearly every city (98 percent) in low- and middle-income countries has air which fails to meet the UN body’s standards.

City vs. Country: Which Is Safer?

You’d think peaceful country living would do wonders for your health. No pollution, less violence. Seems like the obvious way to go, right? But it isn’t so cut and dry.

That number falls to 56 percent of cities in wealthier countries.

Cutting CO2 Could Prevent 175,000 US Deaths

“Urban air pollution continues to rise at an alarming rate, wreaking havoc on human health,” Maria Neira, the head of WHO’s department of public health and environment, said in a statement.

The UN agency’s latest air pollution database reveals an overall deterioration of air in the planet’s cities, and highlights the growing risk of serious health conditions also including stroke and asthma.

The report, which focused on outdoor rather than household air, compared data collected from 795 cities in 67 countries between 2008 and 2013.

The Colorado River in the Grand Canyon in Arizona faces a host of threats including radioactive pollution from uranium mining, proposed construction projects and increased groundwater pumping that could deplete freshwater supplies, according to the group.

Tracking the prevalence of harmful pollutants like sulfate and black carbon, WHO found that air quality was generally improving in richer regions like Europe and North America, but worsening in developing regions, notably the Middle East and southeast Asia.

Overall, contaminants in outdoor air caused more than 3 million premature deaths a year, the UN body said.

The quality of air pollution data provided by individual countries varies considerably, and WHO does not compile a ranking of the world’s most polluted cities.

But, in a sample of selected mega-cities with a population above 14 million, New Delhi was the most polluted, followed by Cairo and Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka.

Crucially, key African centers like Nigeria’s mega-city Lagos were excluded from the list because of the sparse availability of air quality data in many parts of the continent, WHO said.

A sample of European data showed that Rome had slightly worse air than Berlin, followed by London and Madrid.

Key factors 

Carlos Dora, coordinator at WHO’s public health and environment department, pointed to several key factors that determine the quality of a city’s air.

First was transportation, Dora said, noting that cities which succeed in reducing vehicle traffic while promoting walking, cycling and mass public transport inevitably see their air quality improve.

Energy inefficiency — especially with respect to heating and cooling buildings — is a major cause of dirty air, along with the widespread use of diesel generators as a replacement for cleaner electricity sources, Dora added.

Another crucial factor, especially in developing countries, is waste management, with the smoke generated by burning garbage ranking among the top pollutants.
