  2. I found this via a blog friend, Enreal. This was quite an eye opener. The excess; and often the waste. The Bible tells us that there is more than enough of everything under the sun for all of us . . . it is up to us to ensure the balances. . . Even those who do not believe in the teachings of the Bible can see the wisdom in the words. What a provocative post. . . thanks for sharing. I wonder how much of the food that is shown so bountiful is thrown away? As I am guilty of such, I’m not pointing fingers, but this article has given me an awareness and I shall keep it in my heart so that it will manifest in my actions. Thanks for sharing!

  3. It is stunning, and in deep ways saddening.

    The whole comparison becomes even more contradictory, when one can tell who is consciously or not, living within the current bounds of the environment, and who obviously are not.

    What we may believe separate us in identity and responsibility, can well be illusionary. We all share in the worlds issues of over-population and over-consumption, especially the West. We all must care.

    Knowing is so important to all of our survival.
