What's you say? I can't hear you with these fingers in my ears...

"There is a disturbing trend we're seeing in otherwise logical, intelligent people these days. It first shows up as a blatant denial of some scientific fact; such as a denial that weather patterns are changing, or that the number of polar bears is diminishing. This is then followed by an irrational and stubborn refusal to hear any facts to the contrary, accompanied by huffy grumpiness. Why? These are normally rational, open-minded people. We see this trend as a result of the powerlessness people are feeling in the face of enormous change. If it's too overwhelmingly large a problem to look at, we feel helpless. Our advice? Don't be judgmental. We all have fear. Every action we take or word we say makes a difference because we're inter-related. Use compassion and patience… they give resentment and denial a place to begin healing." ~Michael channeled by JP Van Hulle

"If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys." ~Chief Dan George
