As I'm writing this, the air is filled with a brown, acrid haze. Approximately 50 miles from where I sit, several wildfires are burning out of control, without any containment. Hundreds of houses have been lost and tens of thousands of inhabitants evacuated. The smoke that fills the air is proof that lives have been changed forever.
In the Midwest, floods are overflowing riverbanks, taking out bridges and infringing on homes and businesses. On the East Coast, massive storms, crackling with lightning, are spawning tornadoes in places where they don't usually occur.
There are some who love create tension and fear. I just read an article by a pundit who excitedly proposed that there was something "big" going on and that these acts of nature are unusual, if not downright scary. I found it irritating, to say the least. I detest fear mongers.
The earth is constantly moving, changing and is quite alive. What's happening now isn't unique. The destruction of Pompeii, in 79 AD, is proof of that fact. Krakatoa erupted in 1883 and Mt. Saint Helens exploded in 1980. Our very history reveals the energy of this planet.
In the past, millions of powerful, natural events have occurred where no one was present to observe them. Now, there are almost 7 billion of us on the earth. If we get in the way, nature simply does what it does.
We have a tendency to view ourselves as special. Although I don't deny that that's the case, I also remember that we share our home with an estimated 8.7 million species. That's a lot of company to keep and a stunning reminder that we're not alone.
We do differ from other species. We can make decisions that aren't based on our species specific needs. This decision-making process makes us what we are and also makes us an influence on our environment.
For example, lions hunt gazelles; gazelles graze on grass. This is the way they've evolved and this is exactly what they're supposed to do. Gazelles won't become carnivores because their digestive systems couldn't handle it. Lions are unlikely to begin eating grass and tree bark as a steady diet.
We humans, however, have created entire philosophies and spiritual beliefs about what we eat and how we need to eat it. Much of this stems from observations and safety concerns over the millennia, but some of it is purely cultural or societal. Unlike lions and gazelles, we can venture outside of our species specific necessities.
As humans, we make decisions every day. Those who tragically lost their homes in fires or floods knew that their proximity to a beach, river or forest posed a threat. I think this is why so many of these folks are able to discuss their losses with courage and acceptance. I admire them for their strength. In times like these, we tend to understand what's most important in our lives.
We're amazingly tenacious and resilient. We tend to come back stronger than before. London burned in 1666, Chicago in 1871 and 80% of San Francisco was demolished in 1906 by fire and earthquake. These metropolises weren't abandoned, but rebuilt with a new point of view and a determination to be better prepared for the future.
There's another side to being human, greed. A company recently tried to patent a human gene, something that occurs in nature, thereby giving them a monopoly on certain genetic testing that could potentially save millions of lives, making their company untold billions of dollars in the process. Rather than spreading the good news of their discovery, sharing it to improve the public good, they locked it away and proclaimed it theirs.
Greed is antithetical to nature. In any natural setting there's an ecology, usually delicate in its balance. Greed and entitlement are as unnatural as a man-eating gazelle. Sometimes, nature lets us know just how unnatural these traits of ours are.
I think it does us well to remember that we're only one of 8,700,000 species on this earth. We're visitors here and our time is precious, as is our home. We have a profound ability to influence our environment and, in turn, all those who share our environment, but we're also completely subject to the laws of nature, just as every other being on this planet is.
I like that thought. I like knowing that the laws of the Universe are standard, stable and that they pertain to everything and everybody.
I also believe that one of the greatest gifts we've been given is an understanding of the presence of more than meets the eye, to see that there's something divine in everything, even in some of the more unpleasant aspects of life.
By viewing the world realistically and being a part of it, rather than a victim, we enhance our lives. We become active on a spiritual level and realize that it's important to live with love and compassion. By observing the laws of nature and participating in its spirals, ebbs and flows, we become an integral part of the Universe and its plan.
This planet isn't doing anything to us. Our home sustains us, has for a very long time and I pray will do so for a long time to come.
Let's not listen to those who love to spread doom and depression. They insult us and our earth.
Instead, let's feel sympathy and empathize with our fellow human beings, their possessions now hanging in the air as smoke, and realize that we're connected and are all part of the same net of life. Let's all realize that the laws that govern this planet govern us as well and that we have a responsibility to be clearheaded and not react to the fears and manipulations of others.
I marvel at my life on this beautiful orb and am in awe of the gift of life itself. I'm nothing more than a visitor here, but my goodness, what a great visit.
Until next week, I wish you peace, love and fearlessness.
Program Note: Out of Mo's Mind will again air with predictions for the upcoming week, as well as a subject that has yet to be discovered. I suppose I could send an expedition into my mind, in order to force the issue, but that sometimes ends badly. For example, I tried to push for a subject last week and that resulted in an obsession to write lyrics to the theme song for Jurassic Park. I'm not doing too badly, but it isn't the stuff for a radio show. Or, maybe it is? Wednesday, 9 AM, Pacific Daylight Time of 12 radio.com. LIVE!

I love music and have always felt inspired and healed by classical music. One of my all-time favorite pieces is "Adagio for Strings" by Samuel Barber. There have been times in my life when I felt that listening to this piece of music literally healed my energy body. As I listen to it now I feel it reconnecting and balancing my Heart Chakra.
I played the Clarinet in High School and college. I remember sitting in orchestra rehearsal listening to the strings practice Barber's moving piece and crying for no reason. Even then this piece of music was balancing my energy body and soothing my teenage emotions. Listen to "Adagio for Strings" here.
Our energy bodies vibrate at various frequencies, and sometimes they fall out of tune. Using vibration is a very effective way to keep your frequencies balanced. This can be done by drumming, playing a singing bowl, singing, listening to music, or playing a musical instrument.
There are several classical pieces I go to for healing and balancing. In my experience, music created with real live instruments is more beneficial to our energy bodies than electronically created music. Try listening to a few of these (best with headphones) and see what you think. Feel where the music resonates in your body. This is how you know what part of your energy body is being healed by the vibrations.
Canon in D-Pachelbel
Dances with Wolves Soundtrack
Last of the Mohicans Soundtrack
The Mission Soundtrack
The New World Symphony-Dvorak
The Brandenburg Concertos-Bach
Eine Keline Nachtmusik-Mozart
Claire de Lune-Debussy
These are just a few examples of a vast selection of classical music available. I encourage you to give it a try. I know not everyone resonates with classical music, but there are certain pieces that are universally balancing and healing.
Happy listening my friends,
