On Earth Day…Commandments for the Earth.

22 Apr

This is a post from my Arignagardener blog from Earth Day one year ago. On Earth Day 2013 the situation is even more dire. Ireland is still under threat of fracking plus now there’s also the possibility of our public access forests being sold off to pay more money to corrupt bankers. I read that the CEO of Nestle DOES NOT believe water to be a human right. We can see where that’s going. What’s next? Air and light to be privatised!! Our supplies of unpolluted foods are under threat from companies such as Monsanto and Bayer who want to patent all of our seeds. If you haven’t  started already do save seeds this year…from organic sources of course. Most of all enjoy the beauty of our beautiful Earth, whilst respecting and cherishing all of it’s life forms.
Happy Earth Day,
Bridget x.


1.  Thou shalt love and honour the Earth for it blesses thy life and governs thy survival.


2.  Thou shalt keep each day sacred to the Earth and celebrate the turning of the seasons.


3.  Thou shalt not hold thyself above other living things nor drive them to extinction.


4.  Thou shalt give thanks for thy food, to the creatures and plants that nourish thee.

5.  Thou shalt limit thy offspring for multitudes of people are a burden onto the Earth.


6.  Thou shalt not kill, nor waste Earth’s riches upon weapons of war.


7.  Thou shalt not pursue profit at the Earth’s expense but strive to restore it’s damaged majesty.


8.  Thou shalt not hide from thyself or others the consequences of thy actions upon the Earth.


9.  Thou shalt not steal from future generations by impoverishing or poisoning the Earth.

    Of course Nestle will say such things as they are the largest producer of those bottled water and I think it has become a status symbol, all over the world, to strut around carrying one of those bottled water!!! Nothing will change until we humans change. When will we all wake up? There is the danger of Fracking in Ireland also!!! Goodness!!

    I can remember when we used to joke that ‘they’d want us to pay for our air soon’ – now it doesn’t feel funny at all. Such an important message in your post here, I wish the powers that be, would listen and understand.

      Thanks so much for thinking of me with this award. Please do not be offended if I decline as I really had a lot of these on my last blog and they became a little tiresome going through the hoops for each one.

    […] And this post from Bridget at From A Country Cottage sums up wonderfully how I feel about respect for the earth. It is my deep desire that this message should be heard, not only by those of us already thinking this way, but somehow should reach the people who are engaged in enterprises which damage the earth we and our descendants all depend upon.
