Why Is The Great Barrier Reef Dying?

Our bodies and our environment have deep hidden connections. In spite of mankind’s technological achievements they have for the most part only been used to further compete, manipulate or destroy our environment. Frankly, this is evidence mankind has not psychologically evolved one iota.
Consider the human body as a metaphor for the planet. Both are made of the same cosmic stuff, both are living pulsing biospheres of complex dynamic systems that support the whole.

Sadly we care the human body as poorly as we care for the planet that supports all of these life systems and the myriad hidden connections that interweave us all together.

In general the human body is riddled with the same symptoms as the planet . . . and perhaps you will agree that the cause of these common degenerative symptoms is also similar, if not exactly the same.

The pH of the human body is a subtle indication of our over all health. Just as the pH of the ocean is also an sensitive bio-marker of its health. If your body’s pH is acidic rather than slightly alkaline, that means there is less oxygen, depleted cellular salts and too much metabolic waste.

When this state is allowed to persist the body will attempt to add more trace minerals (cellular salts) by removing them from its reserves. The biggest reserve being the calcium in your bones. This eventually leads to loss of bone mass and a systemic breakdown of  over all health and wellness.

Imagine the vast living coral reef systems in the oceans and seas as the calcium and mineral reserves of the planet’s marine biosphere. In fact the water on the planet is very much like the blood in our bodies.

Both depend on a rich solution of mineral salts to  not only sustain, but to propagate, revitalize and rejuvenate.

Your body has an innate intelligence that allows you to take it for granted, for even extended periods of time. But without “genuine care,” inevitably, in the long term, quality of life suffers drastically.

Mama Earth also deserves this “genuine care” and she is not getting it. Look around you and you can’t help but see how conventional medical practice encourages people to just “cover-up” the symptoms of degenerative issues, just pop a magic pill, right? Now look around at your environment. Do you see the parallel behavior patterns? Are we just covering  up the environmental symptoms too?

There is a Self-Health Revolution happening today all around the world and it all begins with you. We are all in desperate need for a personal revolution of perspective, we need to wake up!

Because only with the passion that comes from being totally aware can we experience the joy of being truly responsible.

Right now nothing can be more important than nurturing this “awareness” and turning the health of our bodies and our planet completely around. Mama Nature has always been mankind’s best teacher and she’s gotten nothing but grief from us and now it’s up to us to show we care.

The old adage tells us we can’t give love if we don’t have love, right? well then, this is why each one of us is a living example of what we believe . . . of what we have and what we can give to one another. It begins with me and you.

Change the way you see your self and the world around you will follow that vision. This is mankind’s last and most important lesson from Mama Nature . . . before a new and better era will begin.

When we accept a paradigm shift in “thinking,” naturally our “behavior” will radically change as well. It only takes but an instant to decide to face the truth.

Once you turn on, activate and tune into the hidden connections between your hard drive DNA , your attitude and the food that naturally sustains and heals you . . . you will understand the importance of addressing the root cause of all this suffering.

It’s no secret that mankind has been confused for some time now. But it’s not meant to be that way, we’ve simply confused “cause and effect” . . . somewhere along the way, we just got it all turned around.

Today, I am asking you to help me turn it back around 180 degrees.

Every great revolution began with a minority. Well can you think of a smaller minority than me and you?

It’s not a duty to possess an extraordinary awareness, it’s your loving responsibility. I mean to say, it’s not because you have to, it’s because deep down you have a passion that desires to show “genuine care” indiscriminately . . . because you want to!

You are the rest of the world and the world you see is a reflection of what you chose to believe. “It is simply not possible to see what you do not believe” . . . so change your mind and the world will change too.

One more thing, I want to ask all my readers for a favor. I am applying for http://www.thebestjobintheworld.com/ . . . I was born for this job. I will be the best island caretaker you would ever see  and I hope you will agree that I deserve your support on this great opportunity.

I have an entire series of Self Health books I want to publish as well as many others and getting this “Job” will launch my career as a health and wellness/ environmental writer. I am just starting out as a travel writer and I’ve been ghost writing for doctors and wellness publications for several years now and during this journey I have come across many amazing things I want to share.

I meet all the requirements for the job, I’m a writer, an environmental activist, a photographer, a scuba diver, a social net worker, movie maker and an adventurer. Ultimately I will pod-cast to the world once a week what I find and record concerning the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday islands in Australia.

They will select only 10 people, the 11th will be elected by the world wide web and they will select only one lucky person for the assignment. Whether I get selected or not, I am still on course to fulfill this mission during my lifetime . . . it will take me a little longer, but I will find the funding if it doesn’t find me.

Stay turned on and tuned in.

To you-“the rest of the world!”

Dragon Blood Rising

Over the last one hundred years the industrial revolution awakened the Black Dragon from the bowels of the earth. Asleep for millions of years this once benevolent entity represented the carbon summation of all organic life since the dawn of time itself.

Once released from its pit of darkness to roam upon the surface of the earth, it has fueled our war machines, choked out our atmosphere and tainted every living thing. This Black Dragon has enslaved every race upon the planet to either loath it or worship it in fear.

Fifty years ago our use of hydrocarbon fuels like coal and petroleum rolled out of our machines, furnaces and factories at the highest levels the world had witnessed up to that point.

But now you say, the skies are no longer blackened, it has all gone away. And I tell you it has not; it is still with us today hidden in the chemical rainbow which burns your eyes. Deep within the very threads that make up the web of life . . . not leaving any living organism, from the dying plankton to the drowning polar bear, untouched by its black smudge of death.

There is nothing its footprint has not stepped upon and harmed.

Over the last one hundred years the Black Dragon slowly polluted all the valleys, prairies and forests laying in the moist darkness, heavy and warm. As this toxic cloud sought its lair, it seeped into the crystal lakes, sparkling rivers and emerald oceans . . . turning once sweet rain into rancid rain, blighting the moss, grasslands and forests with dankness and death.

As another celestial age draws near and the solar flares amplify the heat of the spewing smog ten-fold. What scientists prayed would take a hundred an fifty years is happening today as the ancient cold rivers of the ocean trenches well up . . . now releasing the poison breath of the Black Dragon from the feverish abyss far below.

The CO2 sequestered by the weight of the dense cold waters at the bottom of the sea is now churning up as it sours the oxygen rich waters, suffocating and killing with every dark wave that breaks upon the oil stained beaches.

The marrow of the earth itself cries out as living plankton forests that nurtured all the diverse creatures under sea starve to death.

Because the carbonized atmosphere is thickened by the expelled air of the demon dragon’s firey breath, there is no more living dust to dance upon the ocean currents. The mineral enriched ancient winds that alkalyzed the salty seas, blow no more.

The salt of life has become diluted with carbonic acid and no longer conducts the electrical pulse between the cool dielectric layers, but instead erodes away the sacred coral bones of Neptune.

Photosynthesis, a bio-electric process depends on these alkalizing minerals, like hematite dust. The great coral reefs depend on a symbiotic relationship with their world, like we do. But as the corrosive acid levels increase with the temperatures the coral polyps loose the symbiotic algae inside them, causing them to turn white, or “bleach,” and eventually die.

The algae (dinoflagellates) normally provide foods for the coral through photosynthesis, but without cool, oxygenated and mineral rich waters they perish.

Before dolphins, polar bears or mankind there were the plankton. These tiny plants are the ultimate source of life, food and oxygen for all creatures in the sea.

The oceans are dying and the answer is blowing in the wind . . .
