Reality paints a dead nature.
The catastrophes are called natural, as if nature was the tormentor and not the victim, while the climate goes crazy and so do we.
5th of June is world environment day. A good day to celebrate the constitution of Ecuador, that in the year 2008, for the first time in the history of the world, recognized nature as a subject with rights.
It sounds strange, this idea that nature has rights, as if it was a person. On the other hand, it sounds perfectly normal that the big corporations of the United States have human rights. And they do, by Supreme Court decision, since 1886.
If nature was a bank, she would have already been saved.
-By Eduardo Galeano, Uruguayan Author.
Translated into English by me.
La Realidad pinta naturalezas muertas.
Las catástrofes se llaman naturales, como si la naturaleza fuera el verdugo y no la víctima, mientras el clima se vuelve loco de remate y nosotros también.
5 de Julio es el dia del medio ambiente. Un buen día para celebrar la nueva constitución de Ecuador, que en el ano 2008, por primera vez en la historia del mundo, reconoció a la naturaleza como sujeto de derecho.
Suena raro esto de que la naturaleza tenga derechos, como si fuera persona. En cambio, suena de lo mas normal que las grandes empresas de los Estados Unidos tengan derechos humanos. Y los tienen, por decisión de la Suprema Corte de Justicia, desde 1886.
Si la naturaleza fuera banco, ya al habrían salvado.

“I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree on a cold winter day. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don’t worry. It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever.
Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity.
We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea.
I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space, but the emptiness of space will never crumble away because it was never born.”
