Dear My Fellow Beings!

Human Kind

“I bestowed the breath into you, and nurtured you as you grew on. I bestowed you a mind capable of great understanding, and capable of great creations. I fed you and clothed you, but you were not happy with what I gave you. You decided you wanted more than you already had billeted my blessings, even though just being able to experience the beauty, which I created for you is more than any other planet I know has given to its inhabitants.

They thought all the power and everything I gave you are more than your capabilities but I told them that you would deal with it responsibly with the sound state of your minds. Little did I know that you would let me down so badly and disappointed me with your all-mass violations of every guidance and principles. I have now become the laughing stock of the universe watching you dance on the death bodies of your fellow beings. All you had to do was live well and enjoy yourselves with peace and brotherhood with respect to your surroundings, entitled with all rights and powers that you are. I provided you with plenty to eat and plenty to drink, but the large brain I gave you must have been flawed, for as soon as you could walk you used your brain to think deviously.

You utilized the beautiful mind and hands I gave you to create weapons, weapons that you kill my animals and my creatures. You used the wonderful brain I gave you to plot against each other, and developed traits never seen before in the universe. You planned murders of people who did not agree with you, you took land that was not yours to take, you robbed my soil of all its nutrients, and minerals, which you used to make yourselves more powerful. You polluted my rivers, and my oceans, but even that was not enough for you. You created weapons capable of such destruction that you would end my world forever. What am I to do with you? You have reached the point where you can no longer be allowed to continue. You ignored my every principles that I sent you for your wellbeing. The planet I created and manage is not your playground although you treat it so, and in my role as estate manager, I have to make a decision so that to safe my planet with its all creatures.

I have given you every good thing for you with all opportunities to change but you will not. In the end, I will not be able to manage you anymore; you will destroy my world, and yourselves. But you know this don’t you? You know you hold the very same power of creation in each of your individual minds but choose instead the way of greed and destruction. I come to you now, as your friend to plead with you to change your ways, to understand your minds and transcend the violence within you. This is the last time I will come to you.”
