Now is the Time!

Now is the Time!

The time is now to speak up for what we value. We the people inhabiting this magnificent planet are responsible for maintaining it's integrity. To treat our precious natural environment with disrespect or disregard is grossly out of flow with the unified nature of existence. Our Sacred Lands, National Parks, and Wildlife Habitats demand our attention.

    Great post Carol. The up and coming generation has their work cut out for them. And I think they are more than up to the task.

    I have completely fallen in Love with Generation – NO B.S.

    I’ve been so moved recently with the presence of the young people, the children of voices, speaking out of the recent shooting in Florida and necessary change…such unwavering presence and devotion. It feels like the up surge of compassion, love and kindness, heart centered action and awareness.

    Missy: It broke my heart when I had to sell the empty lot adjacent to my house because I couldn’t afford the taxes.. It had been the habitat of so many birds and other critters. Never saw a meadow lark again. The new owner built a house on it. I really appreciate what you have done. Thank you.

    Integrity of the land, I suppose we listen to what it's needs are, controlled management or letting it just be naturally as wilderness. Having studied Forestry and Wildlife, it's interesting to ponder all the ways to attend to the natural state we live within. I battled with that actually in my own decisions around working with it in my 20s. I did witness some remarkable programs in Maine after DDT solutions in the 70s, with the Bald Eagle restoration, and again in VT in the 80s with Peregrine Falcon restoration. Our Human solutions to correct our wrongdoing. I was not of a Hunter mind so approached from Habitat management improvement while working with the USDA Forest service, then later voluntarily taught Environmental Learning for the Future (ELF) in Elementary School. Something I did not hesitate jumping into and getting others to help, a bit naivety in the scale of what I got into went a long way, because once I started I couldn't stop! (10 years) I'll always remember the precious moments had, with the wonder of even one child in the aha moments …. My backyard gardens, pastures and forests today hopefully reflect some of the integrity brought forward. I'm listening every time I step into their space. Today a logger is cleaning up damaged trees and releasing new growth for a healthy future forest. At least that's the hopeful plan, finding Balance is ongoing and always a learning process. Namaste, Missy

    I choose to be respectful of all nature, and that includes human beings in spite of the poor example being set by our President. When I disrespect another being, nature spirit or other, I am disrespecting myself.

    I went out for a walk today and felt so compelled to hug the trees. I needed it for my healing, and what I felt was that I was immediately part of a big circuit – the tree's energy flowed through me, into the ground, and back into its root system, into the earth, and back into the tree, into me, etc. We were all one big circle of energy. I was comforted to hug something larger and older than me. I needed reassurance. I still felt all that I was feeling, but I was more at peace with it. There was more wisdom and perspective.

    Thank you, Joe – your post was straight to the point of the unified nature of existence. It’s that simple – “our” planet to be kept clean, allowed to be, enjoyed, cared for – ‘Protecting its integrity’ And, thank you, Lori, for another point on example. Namaste.

    I have found that it becomes almost painful to not pick a piece of garbage up whenever I see it. The thought “not mine” is quickly swallowed by the immediate act of presence
    Which is to simply bend down and pick up the garbage as “our garbage”.

    Last year, someone decided that black bears were a “problem” in CT. Their proposed “solution” was legalize their hunting. Awareness was raised. Phone calls, emails and petitions were sent to decision makers. They became aware that their decision mattered and that people were watching, aware of their actions. I wrote every day. I watched. The proposal was dropped. CT black bears are safe for now. I will keep watching.

    The quotation for today on my Zen desk calendar is by Carlos Castaneda: "Sorcerers say that true rebellion, and humanity's only way out as a species, is to stage a revolution against their own stupidity. As you can understand, this is solitary work". The problem with not objecting, or not intervening is that by the time the damage is so obvious that it affects the income of the greedy (the only time that change is voluntary) it is long past the time that things can easily be set right. However, this has happened naturally due to geological catastrophes many times in the past. It only takes a few million years for things to be in balance again. Namaste.
