Thank you for your interest in Mother Earth's state of mind. To clarify, when Tom Campbell was speaking in Calgary this year, during a break, I went to the front of the stage and asked him about my personal experience with our planet's out of control emotions. I wrote a book about that Earth-shaking experience, and many other experiences, in order to understand them and assist others who have had similar wake-up calls. The entire book 'The Diamond Lantern' is currently being edited in the UK by Lizzie Hutchins, and should be available this year.
In scientific terms, I asked Tom, "What or Who is Mother Earth?" One Buddhist Lama had told me that 'Mother Earth' was an evil spirit. This did not ring true to me because she was crying out for help plus, I had known her as 'Mother' lifetimes ago. The Indigenous people, the Shamans and the Bon Buddhists are more connected than most to our planet, but are easily dismissed by scientists, contemporary Buddhists, who demand scientific evidence of her consciousness. James Lovelock fell just short of recognizing she was a conscious being. It was with relief that I discovered Tom was also familiar with our planet's state of mind (consciousness). My paraphrased version of his explanation is copied somewhere in this thread.
If you wish to read about that particular experience (there have been others) just download the free eBook from my web site (it is the first chapter). I respect that Tom does not share stories about his experiences because we must discover things for ourselves. However, I believe Mother Earth has been knocking loudly on mankind's door looking for help, and too few have been sufficiently aware to answer the call. Her consciousness evolved from us, so we hold the key to healing her - which of course, is healing ourselves first!
