The volcano is like a timebomb yes. But what it’s related to, is the possibility of the Infinite wiping out the human race — their destructive madness is threatening the planet and the animal kingdom.
It became clear during the Ohio event that the Original Ones have to stop saving humanity. You cannot pull those up that don’t want to. That only pulls you down.
This perspective seems so without mercy to me?
Mercy, the way man defines it, is listed in the dictionary as: kind or forgiving treatment of a someone who could be treated harshly; kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation; a good or lucky fact or situation.
The cruelty of man against animals, people (especially those who cannot defend themselves), the Earth herself, is like a virus spreading through the cosmos. I’ve always said that humanity, being the root race, are archetypes for all other cosmic races. What they do affects all. Mercy, the way man applies it, often means that you have prevented another from learning the hard way, something that in future could call in an even harder way. The most merciful thing you can do is to maintain an eternal perspective (which often seems merciless to one with contracted vision), and live your highest truth. If the great light this sheds can uplift man, then it is merciful. If not, then at least there’s one that will gladly use the opportunities you gift — the Earth. To elevate her beyond the possibility of man destroying her is also merciful.
