Growth – Is it necessary?

       Daddy, why is everyone always talking about growth these days?

      I didn`t think they were Mr Midnight. It never really occurred to me but thinking about it, I think you must be right.

When reading the newspaper, watching television or dabbling about on the internet, one notices quite a fascination for all things related to growth.

       But always wanting to grow is not normal is it?

      I suppose you´re right Sir Winston. We human beings seem to have fashioned the art of always wanting (and needing) to grow.

       Well, I don´t think you humans have “fashioned the art” of growth at all daddy. Just look at the state the world is in at the moment. Your growth fascinations seem to be wrecking the planet at a considerable rate.

       We pussycats like to grow as well as you human beings, but there also has to be times of consolidation and stagnation. Otherwise things are going to get out of paw.

       I agree with you. We do seem to have lost our way a little as regards living in a balanced environment. I suppose a lot has to do with the fact that the individual does not seem to believe that their actions also play a small part of the development of society and our planet. We all conveniently, seem to disassociate ourselves from the very thought of our behaviour also having an effect on our societies and environment.

       I suppose it´s a human thing daddy, but such an approach does appear rather radical, especially as the human race appears to place so much emphasis on believing that it is superior to all other beings.

      If the worlds citizens carry on pushing their figures for more growth year after year then our worlds resources are not going to be able to cope with such behaviour much longer. The only growth I like is spiritual growth.

      The planet seems to have already started to “go on strike”. It´s no wonder really. Perhaps planet Earth is learning something from you human beings as well. Is there a message to be learned?

      Many of us human beings love playing the victim of society (especially when our chips are down) but if we think about what we already have accomplished, most of us could be quite satisfied, at least those living in our part of the world.

      You all just have to get your thinking caps on and get the planet in a better state. One often talks about fairness and how important it is to leave the planet in a better state for your children but to be honest, I don´t think anyone really gives a monkeys about such a notion. Behavioural patterns dictate a different stance to life.

      Oh well, at least there is something other than Corona to occupy the mind – if anyone has the time at least.

Meow, meow from me.

       Purr, purr from me

       And kind regards from myself.    🙂
