UN Document Would Give ‘Mother Earth’ Same Rights as Humans – Whoa!

I have decided to focus on signs of hope. Signs that wisdom is seeking into our systems and actions… There is entirely way too much negative news and it’s the little bit that I can do to help share in the “good Earth news.” Because it’s out there and it’s happening and small ways, in big ways, in remote corners and in the heart of huge metropolitan areas.

So this is something that a friend just sent to me… information on a UN Document that comes out of Bolivia and is committed to encouraging the UN to accept this statement of the rights of Mother Earth. Just imagine that!

Some excerpts:

“The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to “dominate and exploit” — to the point that the “well-being and existence of many beings” is now threatened…

Reflecting indigenous traditional beliefs, the proposed global treaty says humans have caused “severe destruction . . . that is offensive to the many faiths, wisdom traditions and indigenous cultures for whom Mother Earth is sacred.”

It also says that “Mother Earth has the right to exist, to persist and to continue the vital cycles, structures, functions and processes that sustain all human beings.'”
