DAY 289: Gaia, the super-organism that we must protect


Have you ever heard of Gaia?

It is not a new concept.

The hypothesis was formulated by the chemist James Lovelock and co-developed by the microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s.

In Greek mythology, Gaia was the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia was the great mother of all: the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe.

The Gaia hypothesis, also known as Gaia theory or Gaia principle, proposes that organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a self-regulating, complex system that contributes to maintaining the conditions for life on the planet.

The human beings on Gaia evolved their ability to form an ongoing group consciousness, and then extended this consciousness to the fauna and flora, even including inanimate matter of the planet itself. As a result the entire planet became a super-organism.

The people of Gaia know that the actions of one influenced the world of the many and they worked together, created together and respected every living and non-living thing on their planet.

I believe we are headed that way, despite of what happens today on our planet.

We must raise our consciousness; each and every one of us; in every little thing; with every little action; with every thought.

Will you do it?
