The Leopard - Saving Grace

The Apex of Grace

Natural Beauty

 

The Leopard exemplifies Natural Beauty.

 I love watching Leopards. How they move through the forests and understand their environment.

How they live with a strength that only they know.

To see Leopard's jumping through canopy and up trees is truly awe inspiring. Being near one is both incredible and very humbling.

The moment you see one all time seems to stop.

It is an honour just to behold one of these beings.

Nature's Power

The Leopard in this photograph was unbelievably powerful. Before taking the photo he jumped more than 30 feet vertically, effortlessly.

It was amazing to see.

Leopard's are incredibly powerful.

I have seen leopards carrying whole Zebra through trees. This is astounding. 

 

Adult Zebra weigh up to 5 times the average Leopard, yet somehow they

manage to carry Zebra through trees.

That takes real power.

Mother nature is powerful. 

Sometimes mankind forgets that. 

With the love of a mother she gives us all that we need, yet with the smallest of things she can stop the whole human world. When will mankind learn to look after nature?

 

Caring for nature and protecting ecology ensures animals and humanity have more than they need. 

 

We need humanity to care. 

"When you see a 50Kg Leopard drag a 60Kg Antelope up a tree in its mouth, you realise how strong that animal is. 
A Lion could not do the equivalent". 
- Kevin Richardson, The Lion Whisperer

Balance

A natural balance governs all life on Earth. From the birds of the sky to the fish in the sea, all life on this planet is ultimately one. Human beings are meant to cultivate this balance.

When human beings live in harmony we are naturally more happy, healthy, free and prosperous. When humans ignore natural laws and become prideful they hold themselves above nature

and upset nature's balance.

This harms us all. 

Each being on Earth has its own way of life, which all form a balance.

When we are in balance with nature we all life prospers and we are well. When we are out of balance we eventually do great harm each other,

the whole planet suffers, and we

hurt ourselves.

We Need Humanity to Care

Trees From Above

The Earth is a gift.

Though not all receive it,

Those who see the night sky,

Are the ones who wonder why,

Why oh why can't the other people see...

 

The Earth is a gift.

Do you ever look to the sky and wonder,

How is it I have been given all this?

Do you ever stand beneath the clouds,

as drops of rain fall from your nose,

And smile 

The Earth is a gift.

We Need Nature

Nature is a gift that keeps on giving, whether with food and nourishment or the space to feel life, both spiritually and physically we are fed by nature.

We need nature.

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

We Are Nature

The average human body is over 30 Trillion living cells. Each one of these cells a miracle of nature. 


We are all a part of the natural world, and the natural world is a part of us all.

Human beings need nature,

Because we are nature.

Patience

Leopards prefer to hunt from the trees when they need food.

Waiting patiently above they take their time and pick their moment. 

Because they are wise they are careful and do not rush.

Leopards have great patience.

I have seen a Leopard study Lions hunting for hours, just observing and waiting for a herd to be scattered.

To know when to act takes

both wisdom and patience.

Once the Lions had tired and separated the herd the Leopard moved in on a much easier meal. There is great power in such wisdom and patience.

 

Leopard continually prove this.

The power to change always comes from within.

Courage

Good life on Earth takes love and courage.

Courage guides us through great trials and hardship. Sometimes we must face much bigger bullies.

 

I once saw a Leopard defend itself against a whole pride of Lions, including two males.

Considering the size and strength difference, plus the fact it was outnumbered,

this is amazing.

Very few animals have the courage, power and skill to successfully fend off larger attackers - especially

whole pride of Lions.

Leopard's embody the spirit of courage.

Patience

Life is a gift that keeps on giving, both spiritually and physically we are fed by life. The planet Earth is teeming with life.

We need nature.

Patience

The flowers of the meadows. The leaves of the trees. The shade of a willow. The birds and the bees.

All of nature is gift that is 

meant to be shared.

No one can own this planet;

Greed

Planet Earth & nature is given to all. 

The unloving destroy Earth.

The awakened protect it.

Those who think of their children

will stand up to protect it.

Nature is here for us all.

We need to be he for nature.

Nature needs protection from destructive human beings -

you know the selfish/greedy ones.

Those who cut down the forests and set fire to the amazon, 

those who pour chemicals into the sea and mine in the jungle.

 

Those ones.

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

All of humanity is responsible for its future. We need to stand up for all life on Earth. The guardians of nature

are you, us and I.

 

We are all one.

The Natural world is a gift,

not to some,

but to all.

No one can own Earth.

Some people think otherwise,

Some people are destroying nature.

 

Some people are blind. 

It is time we stopped them.

We can revoke big business's claims of land ownership across the Earth and stop them destroying natural habitats. We can instead use our energy to support and nurture nature into an even more flourishing and abundant state than we have today.

 

This truly is a possible future - it just takes lots of people working together to make this happen.

Chemical use and Industrial Agriculture is destroying natural ecosystems and poisoning human beings.

 

Corporations sell tonnes of chemicals to industrial farms for killing weeds and insects, but they also poison and degrade the soil, water and pollinators for years afterward.

These are the ecosystems upon which all other life depends.

We need them.


Corporations are globally destroying animal habitats for money. Through burning, logging and mining of the rainforests they kill millions of animals and threaten their survival as species

all in pursuit of short term financial gain.

 

This is crazy.

Deforestation.jpg

Corporations, government and money are all imaginary constructs.

The Planet Earth and all Natural Ecology are not.

The imagination of man is

Let's protect what is real.

We need to put people over corporations,

not corporations over people.

We need to protect habitats and species,

Not profit margins and economic growth,

If we collapse Earth's ecology there will be no economy.

People's beliefs give them power.

We can change our beliefs.

This world is the product of humanity's collective imagination.

This world is mankind's creation. 

We can creating better.

 Corporate structures and governments allow a few people to

represent the great, great many.

They should not make huge financial gains from destroying the natural world, but they doSome people use corporations to hide how they make money,

because their income comes from activities

that most people would be against. 

Whether by destroying the rainforests or drilling in the oceans, a few people choose to make money by destroying the Earth.

They  selling it to us,

as if they own it.

By greenwashing their activities many corporations hide extremely harmful practices from public scrutiny and use marketing, lobbying or other means to influence media and politicians to continually distract humanity from the examining their actions.

Leopards are dangerously close to extinction.

Golden Leopard.jpg

Endangered Beauty

Leopards are dangerously close to extinction. There are now less than 100 Amur Leopards living out in the wild. In the past few decades, all leopard species have suffered massive decline. Why?

Because we allow it.

Unless we act soon, the children of tomorrow will never be able to see Leopard's alive. We, and all on the Earth, 

will have lost the chance to meet 

these beings forever. 

It can be hard to see why such fierce beings need our help,

but to protect them from humans we simply must act.

 

Human industry is destroying natural habitat.

We are losing these species because they're losing their home.

People are Awakening

Climate Strike Greta Thunberg.gif

The images you will see on this page are from the most significant 

public protests in recent British history; 

Yet nothing like this was shown in mass media.

Why?

87889394_10157580222390873_4509009404967

Continued chemical use in agriculture and industry is poisoning the water, soil, rivers and streams. This is killing the plants and pollinators - both things upon which

all of humanity depends. 

We are losing animal habitat, clean water and food because governments are allowing industry to keep destroying the natural world. It is up to the people to hold both their government and corporations accountable. 

It is time we stood up for Earth. 

System Change not Climate Change.jpg

the Strong Protect Nature

Over half of all animal species are now in decline because we aren't holding political leaders and corporations to account for their behaviours. Industry and large scale agriculture are polluting the planet and destroying entire ecosystems.

 

Corporations and the media employ the continual use of psychology to cultivate repetitive and unsustainable behaviours. Through advertisement and marketing a few big corporations control public perception and consequently mass human behaviour.

Why allow this?

 

Most of their power comes from marketing and advertisement.

We take this away by stopping the use of their logos.

Better yet, put an end to all advertising.

`Like Vienna did.

 

the Greedy Destroy

We need a free place

Since corporations, governments and big businesses are just constructs of the human imagination, why do we let them control this world? Why are the world's resources being used to destroy natural habitat for profit?

These imaginary structures allow immoral people to destroy a whole planet and make financial gain. This is totally wrong.

They are doing this because they control the system.

We should change that.

the Young and the Free

Human indifference to industrial negligence is allowing continual ecological destruction. Big industry and corporate greed are destroying natural ecosystems upon which all life depends. 

Because of all this, the majority of species are now in decline.

How can we allow this.

Are Making a Choice

We make decisions every time that we buy.

If we stop buying from the companies that destroy,

Those destructive companies will soon lose their power.

If thousands of people make much better decisions,

The whole world will change because of their good works. 

What if you lived your whole life doing good things?

Working for love, instead of for money.

What a beautiful life indeed.

To Stand Up For Nature

During one of these protests pictured, every road around the British government in offices in London was surrounded and shutdown by activists for many days.

This is a significant public event, the most significant in decades.

to Speak in the Street

There are a lot of people on Earth who care deeply for nature,

but so few are aware of the urgent need to protect it.

This suits corporates, government and industry just fine, because they can avoid public scrutiny and continue profiting from the destruction of nature.

As One Tribe of Love

If we combined resources we could easily change this.

 

Before that can happen we need to help others wake up.

To awaken and inspire humanity is the main reason I create art.

Those who care can change the world.

If we work together,

We can change.

The Warriors of Peace

We all are invited to connect with this planet,

and those who connect will choose to protect the Earth.

 

Big industry and corporates are responsible for more damage than anything else. Only such can destroy nature at planetary scale. 

Hold them to account.

Corporations are just constructs of the human imagination, yet they are given the rights of real people and allowed to own land - even though none is accountable in the way a human being is. corporations now own more resources and property than most nations, Despite being entirely imaginary constructs,

and operate so irresponsibly and at such scale

that they threaten an entire planet's ecosystem.

So Earth can be Free

The unsustainable world economy is now so destructive and unbalanced that it threatens all life on Earth. We are already seeing millions of birds drop from the sky, the collapse of many ecosystems, and the failure of many crops, but mass media gives this very little attention.

 

If we continue propagating this system much longer it will cause a planetary scale ecological breakdown. It is our responsibility as human beings to make other people aware of this situation and come together to change this course. 

We need to save planet Earth.

This is our duty to each other, ourselves, the children and nature.

Ignorance and indifference are major hurdles to protecting planet Earth.

How will people care for issues they simply aren't aware of?

Through artwork and writing we can raise more awareness,

but the message only travels as far as it's shared.

I do what I can with the resources I have,

but this needs everybody.

So how are we going to create a brighter, better world?

I can't speak for others but my message is this:

 

By giving and sharing the good that we can,

By creating positive feelings in ourselves and in others,

By growing in compassion for the poor and brokenhearted,

By being more conscious of the state of this Earth,

By using our energy for good,

By overflowing the world with our love,

By lifting up our hearts and overcoming low vibrations,

By seeking what is true and sharing all creation,

By using our energy in powerful new ways,

By protecting other people,

By removing the limit to personal development,

By standing together for what's good and righteous.

By ignoring the ones who seek to control us through fear,

By being more present until the 

Whether it's painting houses, writing books or good music,

I firmly believe in Art's power to change.

Centralisation of resources through broken and redundant systems has allowed corporate greed to threaten the whole natural world.

 Corporate structures control mass media and heavily dictate the information most now receive. These same structures derive power from unsustainable practices by creating demand and promoting consumerist behaviour through the media they own and influence. 

This system depends upon public ignorance and person dissatisfaction.

A handful of companies control most used technology and social media so that we are approaching the day a virtual technocracy becomes reality. 

(These platforms are now massively censoring information).

Though many are aware of the issue and work hard to reach others, we are now losing the ability to reach public consciousness.  

In the modern world those who control media control consciousness.

Mass control of media is now the greatest threat to human freedom.

You will often see Leopards near to Lions in the wild, watching them hunt and even joining in. Lions seem to respect the Leopard were they would not tolerate other competitive predators (like wild dogs or Hyena's).

It is beautiful when I see this respect between them.

The first hurdles we face to protecting planet Earth are ignorance and indifference .

How will people care for issues they simply are not aware about?

Through artwork and writing I raise more awareness,

but this message only travels as far as it's shared.

I do what I can with the resources I have,

but this needs everybody.

These fine art prints are created with the best printer in Europe,

and are carefully crafted to the highest quality.

Every purchase of artwork supports this cause.

We can change the world with pure love.

We are One.

Human indifference to industrial negligence is allowing continual ecological destruction. Big industry and corporate greed are destroying natural ecosystems upon which all life depends. 

Because of all this, the majority of species are now in decline.

How can we allow this.
