Tuesday, July 8, 2014. I have too many questions without answers. Sometimes, like now, my questions scare me.
I am so very grateful to have a computer and access to internet. My next thought, however, ties directly into my questions: Does the (to me, dangerous) escalation of problems in this world simply directly correspond to the escalation in knowledge-finding resources available to humans that we must have to begin to find solutions to these same problems?
I dove into the internet today to land …… UhOh – In read time at this moment….. Speaking of problems, I look out my window and see the poison hose of hundreds of feet being dragged around the apartment complex’s lawn by the herbicide man. Does ANYONE ever ask what these poisons are doing to LIFE itself – and especially to our children’s health? Why do we wonder about the terrifying rise in autism in our kids, for example? I certainly just gave the poison man – who wears no protection against his own toxins – the evil eye as I slammed my window and door shut.
“Leave it, Linda. You can do NOTHING but ask the questions and modulate your own rage at human shortsighted stupidity!”
BEFORE this vision appeared…….
I went searching and found these highly intriguing books:
The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine N. Aron Ph.D. (Jun 2, 1997)
The Highly Sensitive Child: Helping Our Children Thrive When the World Overwhelms Them by Elaine Aron (Oct 8, 2002)
Parenting the Highly Sensitive Child: A Guide for Parents & Caregivers of ADHD, Indigo and Highly Sensitive Children… by Julie B. Rosenshein (Apr 24, 2013)
The Highly Intuitive Child: A Guide to Understanding and Parenting Unusually Sensitive and Empathic Children by Catherine Crawford (Jan 1, 2009)
Trauma in the world ends up in the physiology of the people in or near it. It ends up in the epigenetic powers that control the operation of DNA – very probably and often right on down the generations.
How does the ‘body of the world’ react to the devastation of combined erroneous actions toward life? Who pays the price? AND HOW?
Who is considered ill or subversive if they raise an eyebrow against mass stupidity, let alone a voice?
Are there children being born now on this planet with a supersensitive physiology that can simply not tolerate the toxins infesting our planet on every level – including social-emotional toxins of all kinds even when outward “abuse” does not seem to be remotely present?
I was telling my oldest daughter last weekend that I am always glad I believe in a life after death – as crazy as this world seems to me – where – and I meant to say “All my questions will be answered” – but it came out – “Where all my answers will be questioned.”
Today as the horrible odor of this weed poison invades all these apartment dwellings and will contaminate every romping, happy child who plays on this grass, I find myself thinking there are a whole lot of supposed ANSWERS being implemented in America, certainly, that will need to be questioned in that next world!
Meanwhile, we and our children live on this earth suffering from and dealing with consequences of being here that are having and will continue to have massive effects on the NERVOUS SYSTEM and IMMUNE SYSTEM of increasing numbers of children who are probably being born in super-sensitized bodies in reaction to the toxic forces already present in their parents – certainly sent right into the fetus through its mother.
I remember the perfection of the Alaskan wilderness where I was raised on that mountain homestead. I fear – in reality – that era was the last of wilderness. The systems on this tiny planet are so interconnected pollution circles in the air, in the water – in myriad ways and patterns that have removed purity from the planet.
This morning – I don’t think purity exists any more for us here on this planet. What of our children’s futures? What is the cost of their adapting to the conditions we continue to create here?
Will it “all come out in the wash?”

Linda, I share (and I’m sure many, many others also share) your feelings and concerns about the rampant short-sightedness and insanity you describe so well.
I remember well the moment I first discovered “Stop the Storm,” and how your mission statement:
“The most important work we can do, individually and globally, is the healing of traumas so that we don’t pass them down to future generations. This blog is a working tool to contribute to this good work.”
… made me sit up and take notice!
And it still does – I’m so continuously grateful that you share your perceptions so powerfully.
Your continual support and affirmations mean more to me than words can say. There is a screaming need in the school systems for troops of specialists trained to work with the swelling ranks of “autistic spectrum” children. I seriously question epigenetic factors as toxins in the environment work their awful magic on what is now generations of parents – and their parents before them – who were increasingly exposed to chemicals of all kinds being mercilessly dumped into our food chain, breathing environment, water supply — and then I get angry at myself for being angry!
