Heal Our Planet Earth

The Spiritual Dialogue & heartfelt responses

Date: Apr 7, 2008 6:08 PM

Dear Anthony,

I just thought of you and wanted to send you a few words...

It's been hard for me to live on this planet lately; I am not sure any more if humanity will ever awaken. Maybe it wasn't meant to be. I sometimes wonder what I am really doing here...and why?!

Animal suffering hurts me terribly. More than anything else. These wonderful creatures are truly a part of nature, they are the essence of truth and innocence.

How can the human monster hurt them so terribly?! Is the human mind completely insane?!

The only way to deal with it is to fight it. I have no choice. I cannot close my ears and eyes...like many people do. I cannot betray myself so terribly. The only comfort are the people who are in this fight with me...people like you.

And then, there's Universe! When I think that I am a being living in the Universe, I get inspired and energized. I feel like I could do...anything!

Take Care,

Carmen, MD

P.S. I still have your book. I was reading it last fall, but was moving back and forth through chapters due to lack of free time. Now, I am reading it again from the beginning. It is a GREAT book! I hope to discuss it with you in August.

Reply from Anthony Marr

Dear Carmen,

Thank you for your extremely moving message. I can empathize with every word, and read between every line.

Know that you are not alone in this sadness, nor in this fierce fight into which my own deep sadness has been transformed. Trust me, we shall triumph.

The way I look at life is that my universal soul can reincarnate on to any planet at any time in its direst hour of need, to help save that planet and its necessarily beautiful lifeforms from impending peril. Now is my time for the planet Earth, whose lifeforms are indeed beautiful, achingly so, and whose peril is dire indeed.

I never feel burdened with anything near despair, regardless of seemingly overwhelming odds. I always have hope, and this hope is based on my own trust in my own ability to execute my mission. I have so far by and large met my objectives, and expect to continue doing so until my final breath. To me, death means Mission Accomplished. I will not look back, but at once embark upon another planet-saving mission in this or another galaxy. I hope to see you there, too!

I am deeply gratified by what you said about my book, especially since it took me a quarter century to write it. I consider it my crowning achievement so far in my life. I have plans to include it, among other artifacts, in a number of time capsules set for opening in the year 2060.

In closing, may I share with you The Impossible Dream?

Take care.



To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man/woman, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his/her last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

Other Reponses

Anthony and Carmen,
Thank you thank you both of you. For I too feel the immense sadness for
the suffering of our precious brethren, but know there are others like
you Carmen and Anthony who are in this battle with me. We are in pretty
wonderful company!! :-) I sing The Impossible Dream daily and when my
son Shannon visits weekly he plays it on the piano and sings it
beautifully as well. Shannon is a classical pianist and opera singer. My dear friend Prad tells me often "we have already won the war". I think he is right. He also tells me evolution is on our side. Best to both of you.

Beautiful! Thanks much!

Anthony, I sing the song you tagged at the end of this incredible message almost every day of my life. I gasped when I saw this song attached to your e-mail.

Angi Metler, New Jersey

Wow, that is so beautiful, so inspiring. Thank you. I needed to hear you both, for my heart is heavy these days.

Hi Anthony,
Thank you. This is really beautiful, and I can relate to everything Carmen says. I am not as optimistic as you, but I am trying to live as if I am. I am glad for you both being here on this planet right now.

Thanks for sharing that personal email. I am sure we all feel the same way but we must NEVER give up.

Thank you for forwarding your deeply moving and touching message. Although I am not in the same place as you and your friend, I do appreciate your positions. Your response to this person was very empathic and caring. Your words were well-chosen. How marvelous your devotion to your cause. I do admire your tenacity, courage, and love that you impart on all of your missions.

Roxy Pettifar, Delta BC

Very nice Anthony..

This world can be extremely hard to live in. People are cruel. It's almost a life sentence of extreme sadness just for caring about the animal kingdom. It can get the best of anyone....me included.

You are a great man....a wise one with the ability to lead the rest of us through the hardships of the human race.

Rebecca, Oregon

I'm crying. Thanks a lot! Kidding, really this is quite inspiring to me. It helps so much to know that there are others like me out there and that we are not alone.
That song, The Impossible Dream, is so beautiful and should be on every single AR person's website.

These feedbacks are good for my soul. Empowering. A life sentence of extreme sadness. Well said. Guess that's why when I laugh these days I laugh longer and harder. My mind's way of balancing I suppose.

Lane Ferrante, Bedford OH

Your destiny is as you say - to salvage and make good on our Planet and I know that you will use every sinew of strength to accomplish this -Thank you Anthony for being our Star shining brightly and Thanks to Carmen who spoke so touchingly about her fears and hopes - and that she should be proud to be one of those who chooses not to shut their eyes and close their ear's, she is truly a beautiful being too!

Tracy-Ann, UK

Hi Anthony, Thank you for the very touching letter from your friend. I can relate. I have been sad about the seal slaughter. I would be interested to read your book. I am currently reading Souls in the Sea Dolphins, Whales and Human Destiny by Scott Taylor. I love the song you added at the end in your reply. it helped me as well, Together we can make a difference.

Your friend Val.
