It Is Time For Us To Do Our Part…

 
I write and think about the effects that human beings are having on the health of this earth almost every day but it was still shocking when, in preparation of this eBulletin, I did a simple google image search on the environment and pollution. My heart sank and a rancid nausea rose in my stomach upon seeing images of children picking though gigantic piles of garbage, of sea animals swimming through the muck of spilled oil or suffocated on plastic bags, of smoke stacks sending infinite waves of toxic plumes into the air, of brown skies due to endless streams of cars on huge highways, of gorgeous, century old forests being completely erased, of piles of trash floating down water ways, of chemical and industrial factories dumping waste into our rivers…

Our earth home is innocent, it is a perfectly balanced system that provides all that every creature needs to thrive, and the plain, simple truth is that we are destroying it. We are also, in the process, destroying the chance of our future generations to live happily and well on this green-blue planet. I have no desire to hear about moving to another planet- to me that is the response of a spoiled child who didn’t care for his toy, broke it and now wants to get another one. This is our home, this is the incredible, miraculous gift we have been provided. This gift includes plant medicine, food, shelter, water, beauty, art, music, clean air, resources to warm and protect our body, adventure, and Spirit manifested. As humans we have the final piece to the puzzle – the awareness to both appreciate it as well as nurture it.

Personal transformation occurs every time you enter into nature and stop to delight in its inherent divinity. World transformation occurs when we serve and protect our earth home. And, my friends, this CAN be done one person at a time. Our earth heroes and heroines have been showing us the way- it is time for us follow their lead, or become the new leaders for our future generations.

I hope you enjoy this eBulletin as much as I have! Read more here.
