I’ve been thinking of that young belle recently and wondering if she might be a version of Gaia writ small, or perchance Gaia is that young lady writ large.
I’m not saying that She consciously makes such a decision. We all sometimes find ourselves scratching where it itches even before we are consciously aware of the itch.
Have we become an infection? Have we killed off one too many of our fellow species, felled one too many forests, injected just too much poison into our atmosphere, practiced genocide once too often?
Are we at the tipping point for disaster, and is this present crisis the one that tips us over? Or is it a test to see whether we are worth saving? The Holy Scriptures of the world are filled with such tests. Perchance Gaia has Her own.
Is it possible that we might pass Her test?
