Observations of an Invisible Woman

Hurricane Sandy

For those of you that will be affected by this storm, which I do not believe is from Mother Nature, please take precautions:

1. Water

2. Canned food

3. Flashlights

4. Candles

5. Kerosene Lamps

6. Batteries

7. Back-up generators

9. Cell phones

10. Prayer

Since we have no control over nature, real or man-made, we can only try to protect ourselves as best as we can. Be safe…

  1. Everything that the world does it does in a circle. The Earth teaches us the doctrine of Cycles. The Sun, the Moon, and the seasons come and go and return again and again. Even so it is with the cycles of our own lives. The Earth teaches us just as Nature does for they are one.

    We must live in harmony with the Earth and with Nature. To do otherwise is to court disaster. The forces of the Earth are greater than any power we can safely master. To strive against these forces is foolish.

    Do nothing to the Earth that shall take away from the purpose it serves in Nature, for this is the natural balance. And the Earth shall always move against us to restore itself.

    Is the tiller greater than the soil he till? Is the family greater than the crops they help grow? Is not the life within the soil, and within the crops, our own? How shall we be without them? What you do to the Earth you do to yourself.

    Do not think that we are greater than the Earth, or than Nature. For surely they shall both crumble and dissolve all that we shall erect. And there shall be floods and earthquakes, and hostile weather to show us our errors and teach us perspective.

    Our intent determines the approach we take to life. Our actions determine the response life takes to us.

    Merikans are still part of the world and the cycle of life, not above it or laws of nature … the fruit of our intentions.

    Beautifully put. Our ancestors have shown us that the Earth will seek to rectify the wrongs done to it and us.

  7. our ancestors surely have taught us,and deep inside of us our ancestors live. people have lost their way, the way of nature … i keep thinking of Russell Means with this storm

    Earth Song by Michael Jackson is a parallel to this post. The mismangement of the earth is the price mankind will pay.

  10. Miss Mary:

    This storm, perhaps man-made?, will do much harm if it continues along it’s destination. Please stay safe.

    I live in Texas. But I’m praying for everyone in the east coast. Be safe.

  12. My thoughts are with those in your land who will experience Sandy. It has left us in Jamaica with quite a bit to do but we give thanks as it could have been much worse. Personally, where I live in Jamaica, we had a couple days of continuous drizzle with intermittent heavy showers. Towards the end, there was a lot of heavy wind, but, again, thankfully not much damage was done. Not so elsewhere in the country. I hear Carina’s wise words. Blessings to all.

  13. Thank you, Russell. To you as well.

    my mother is over there i am so worried because she is still driving to work.

  15. To all:

    Things are getting really bad over here on the East Coast. I may not have power later so I’ll wish all of you a safe travel. For those of you caught up in this storm, if you can board up all your windows and if possible, gather in the basement or a crawlspace for safety.

    I’ll touch base with you again when I can.

  16. Update to all:

    Weather up here is terrible. Hope things will improve soon.

  17. I was barely affected here in Metro DC, so my prayers are with you in the Northeast.

    Check out this video from this brother Fearless. He has some interesting views on Hurricane Sandy. Tell me what you think?
