HUMANKIND, be both: "Smoking Mirrors"

Attached is a video of an indigenous woman of the Amazon yelling about the fires in August of 2019 of the Gregorian calendar being set intentionally. Colonialism is still burning and generating terror for people worldwide, literally with this existential crisis of the Amazon rainforest. Most of the destruction of the Amazon (not the online retail delivery convenience) is for the clearing of land to grow corn to feed livestock (chickens, cows, pigs, and even fish). Because many parts of the world have adopted a European diet, lots of meat consumption, as a status symbol, meat production is highly profitable while simultaneously being devastating for the environment. Indigenous phrases like "In Lak'Ech," "Ubuntu," "Aloha," or even "Namaste" affirm a shared reality and inherit greatness within us to be one with all creation. These concepts liken humanity to mirrors facing each other. When mirrors are face to face, infinity is reflected back and forth. Infinite possibilities live between us as a human race. But, if we don't with religious discipline "polish" our mirrors and stop, clear, or prevent the "smoke between us," we could end up reflecting back and forth infinite distortions. I've said it before and will say it again, "hurt people hurt people" or "open hearts open hearts." To keep our "mirrors" brilliant and our possibilities virtuously infinite, "help each other help each other." Blessings
