Here is another short conversation I had recently with JP, an elf who is related to Mr E by marriage and rules a neighboring country. Here he talks about the elven responsibility of being a good steward of the earth.–nl
NL: If there was something you could say to humanity that would be helpful, what would you say? In a diplomatic way of course.
JP: [Laughing] You are asking me to perform miracles.
NL: [Laughs] Not feeling very diplomatic?
JP: Well…(long pause) I think humans might benefit from taking a good look at what they have created, both good and bad. They seem to have trouble acknowledging their negative impact upon the earth.
NL: Many of them do acknowledge it and there is even a United Nations Climate Change Conference but we certainly could do more on an individual level. Maybe humans are just a younger race.
JP: They are!
NL: Maybe that explains the general lack of interest, I don’t know, but I did find it interesting that the elves, according to Mr E, have also had some dark moments in their early history.
JP: Yes, we’ve had some follies ourselves.
NL: However that did not include the destruction of the earth, they didn’t do that.
JP: That’s the one thing we didn’t do that humanity did. There’s the difference between us, a major difference. We decided it was so important, more important to us than anything, and we will not break that law.
NL: You’re referring to a law that Mr E recently told me was written in your sacred book of Nullyn. He said the first thing recorded in that book were words from their creator, charging the elves to take care of the earth.
JP: Yes, that was our promise. Before our feet were set upon the earth and, in order to be given the privilege to walk upon the earth, we made a promise to be good stewards.
NL: Apparently, whoever put humanity on the earth didn’t hold them to the same promise.
JP: Right, or perhaps they have forgotten but once it was forgotten, anything was possible. You see what I’m saying? You need to take care of the earth so that you can stay on it, that is the rule.
I do agree that this is not true for all humans, mind you because this is something Native Americans have long understood along with other indigenous people all over the planet.
I think when humans get into technology their brains become numb and they begin to think, “well, just a little bit over here won’t matter.”
But, yes, it does matter!
If you’re doing something contrary to this rule, it’s not good, and you have to be very vigilant about that.
NL: Perhaps it goes back to humanity’s relationship to the earth. They seem to be very disconnected from it.
JP: Yes, this happens when their inventions and technology become more important than the consequences of their “human magic.”
NL: Some things humans have created are pretty amazing.
JP: It is fascinating, it’s mesmerizing when you look at it, but the bottom line is still the same message that we’ve all come here to say.
Stop what you’re doing and find a way to make things work without gasoline, without burning coal. Find a way to have your fancy gadgets and technology without destroying everything around you. If you can do that, then you’re good. I don’t mind technology as long as it doesn’t tamper with the earth’s condition.
