Have you ever sat and watched ants at work? Always busy marching back and forth. They range out looking for food in different directions. When the find something, like a dead insect or mouse for example, they leave a chemical message, a signal for the others telling them where the food is. The other ants quickly follow the trail to the find and they start the long task of taking it tiny bit by tiny bit, back to the colony. This is food for all, the ants that watch the development of the eggs, those that guard the colony, the queen etc. (The guards of the nest, or soldier ants as they are called release formic acid as a warning of impending danger to the colony when they sense a danger). Everyone in the colony shares, they work as a team for the good of all.
What can we learn from this? Do people work for the good of all? Some will say its communist thinking but many societies work on this scheme and are successful. You won’t find the mega rich and the terribly poor. All is shared as much as possible. One man’s skills will help another who doesn’t have that skill and in turn he will use his skills to help others.
Bee colonies work in the same way as ants do. They alert their hive to a good source of pollen and nectar. They do a dance in the hive which tells the others what direction and how far. The bees help the plants pollinate so new seeds can develop and grow new plants. Without the bees help, these plants will die out and become extinct. Many of our food crops are reliant on the bees. We need to protect them, stop spraying insecticides that kill them!
Many of the insects considered pests are important in the ecological cycle. Every little bees is important to the survival of our earth. The insecticides are very dangerous and soak inot the soil. The plants draw up water and nutrients from the soil and at the same time, they draw up the toxic insecticides. We then eat the crops and contaminate our bodies. We create illness where none should be!
There are natural ways to control insects in our environment. We just need to learn which plants repel which insects and plant them alongside our crops. No insects are harmed, they just go elsewhere. No crops are harmed and we get to eat healthy food.
So remember this before you grab the bug spray. You are about to spray toxin into your air and garden. You and your loved ones will breathe it all in and become ill. You, your children and your pets will play in the garden and be affected by the toxins. Think carefully about what you do to your environment.
Catch the bugs in your home if you don’t want them there. Take them outside and release them. They are far more use to you and the environment outside. Nature takes care of itself very well. We do not need to contaminate and destroy. That just puts the whole system out of balance. So many beautiful butterflies for example have died off and become extinct because of our careless spraying. We spray for mosquitoes and destroy hundreds of other useful insects at the same time. If we left the spiders alone in the garden, they would eat up all the mosquitoes and pesky bugs. They are a great benefit to us and yet we slap them to death when we see them. We take their environment away and then proceed to destroy them claiming they are invading our space. We are meant to protect the earth and its creatures – that is the creator –God’s wish for us. Take care of all life and the earth. After all we are all one with God and one in God. We are the caretakers of all life on our beautiful living planet.
Take some time out in nature, look for the ants busy at work. Watch how they move an insect back to their nest. They all seem to be pulling and pushing in different directions yet the insect is slowly moved closer and closer to the colony. This is how we all connect to the Divine. Each on our own path. It may seem strange to others, how we approach our ascension. Yet we all are working to the same result, in the same direction. We all get there eventually, each in our own way..
So remember, never criticize anyone’s belief, that is their way, their path. Your path may seem just as strange to them. Yet our goal is the same. This applies to all religions too. No matter which religion you follow, if any. We all believe in the same God, we all believe in his goodness. We all believe ware going back to source, we are just all doing it in our own way.
Watch the ants walking along their path. Every now and then they stop and interact with each other. Our paths also bring us together from time to time, to share our experiences and knowledge we have gained. Together we learn, we convey new information to each other. It may be something we have been looking for, to answer some question we have. We may bring some healing to another just by being kind and sharing our truth and love. Help one another, be an inspiration to someone, even just a smile can make all the difference in someone’s day.
