Every Day is Earth Day

You and I, along with the animal kingdoms, ocean realm, sky worlds, fairy realms and elementals, are all Bridges of Love Light to heaven. Our Eden, Mother Earth, and all of her inhabitants are very alive and sentient beings and are here to be enjoyed, loved and nurtured 

Now. 

You and I, we, are beloved Bridges of Love and Light from Earth to heaven and back again in a constant movement of sharing our spiritual selves and Earth selves.

Each of us said we would help one of these beings or realms before we were born. I remembered this pre-birth agreement I had, saying I would help the oceans, cetaceans, trees, horses and dogs. You may have remembered your agreement also. If not consciously yet, you may begin having dreams of spirit animals or plants you are especially drawn to. It is fun, simple and satisfying to help our Earth Mother and our Father Sky.

Recognizing our Oneness with Heaven, Mother Earth and Father Sky, opens up infinite possibilities for creating the world we love to live in and share with others.

Trees, the standing people, love to interact with us. My grandson, Cooper, taught me how to hug a tree. He said, “You walk up to a tree and put your flat palm against it.”  A great way to start your conversation with a tree!

I love to stand in the middle of fairy ring trees. Trees that grow close together in a circle, leaving just enough room for you to stand in the middle. I love doing this and just being with the spirit of the trees. I sometimes put my back against the tree and feel its life force enlivening and strengthening me. Refreshing and inspiring.

Creating your own ceremonies and rituals with Mother Earth will bring you many benefits. One is what Glenda Green’s book, Love without End: Jesus Speaks, teaches us—innocent perception. We become as children and see Nature innocently. Instead of looking at a tree as we see a TV screen, we innocently perceive it. We feel its essence and discover its true nature and ours. This wonder and oneness transports us to our own innocence and love. We might wonder, how can I make this tree more comfortable? What does it need? I’ve found that when I take the time to perceive in this way, I feel more peace and well-being within myself.

Two websites I want to highlight again today are Mother Nature Network and Perelandra.

Each one has a wealth of nature research ongoing with infinite variety and ideas on how to understand our Earth Mother and All of her inhabitants, spiritually and physically.

Perelandra is a site that I have visited many times, and I always feel that I have barely scratched the surface. Machaelle Wright’s book Perelandra Soil-less Garden Companion is an exploration in how to see that everything in our lives– our work, home projects, and art– really are gardens. She works in very deep ways with the sprit of nature, and her work is not only revolutionary but very practical, with numerous healing tools and flower essences for sale. The site always sparks new ideas for me and is very healing by its nature of giving and sharing love.

Simplicity

Simplicity

I have read the statement “God is Simple” many times in spiritual texts from many different authors. I believe God is simple. God is Love. A Course in Miracles states: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Therein lies the Peace of God.” Simple. I have used that often when I have been in “tight spots,” or to bring myself to a state of Peace. I love simplicity.

In one of the last Star Trek Movies, Spock was standing next to his computer and that same statement from A Course in Miracles was on his monitor. It was slightly in the background, but plain enough to see. I smiled and wondered how often it was noticed.

The photos today are how simple it is to help our Earth and ourselves to be very much healthier and happier.

In one of my favorite books, Love Without End: Jesus Speaks…, by Glenda Green, Jesus tells us very simple ways to improve our lives. One of my favorites is to contemplate infinity every day. Look at the stars, or horizon or just imagine the infinite love of the Creator for you and the Creation. A simple moment that can change your whole day for the better.  Also view the sunrise and sunset. Watching the sunset gets your mind and physical body ready for a good night’s sleep. Especially when you add thanks for all the goodness of the day. Also, watching the sunrise sets your body for activity and gives the energy and fire of life.

About 23 years ago I asked my self how I could help the earth. I wanted to donate to organizations that had missions of helping, when I realized I could help very simply by buying organic foods. I had worked for the Animal Protection Institute in the 70s and Planetary Citizens in the 80s and understood that much of the monies donated were used for overhead. I do believe in the good work of non-profits. My love of simplicity led me to choose to use my money to help the Earth and water by buying organic products whenever I could. Organic foods help the soil, bees, butterflies, water, including our life-giving oceans, farmers’ health and our health.

At this same time is when I discovered Numi organic tea. A brother and sister who are passionate about tea and helping the Earth and her people started this company. I was so happy to purchase the little woven basket of five tea bags. Today, about 25 years later, their tea company has expanded to being fair trade and helping an organization: H2OPE helping water, soil and farmers. I have loved watching them expand over the years. I’m a lifelong tea lover and theirs are my favorite. Now I have even seen their teas in hotel room coffee and tea service. Their bottle is beautiful. Today the lid contained the Arabic Proverb, “The mind is for seeing, the heart is for hearing.”

We are all One, loving the Earth is loving your body. I feel we are all joining together in knowing this. One of my favorite songs that one of my friends often sings is the Shaker song “Simple Gifts.”
