It has become a most fascinating way to wake up, this message-every-day phenomenon. Now, nearing a full year since it began, I still don’t understand it entirely. But, as you well know, I also don’t question it.
As long as they keep arriving, I’ll keep sharing them. Some mornings, the images and feelings are much more urgent than others. Each one is distinct and individual. Today’s falls on the “important” side.
As you ALSO know by now, I’m not exactly Sally Safety. (Bike riding with no shoes is merely the latest incarnation.) However, that doesn’t mean I’m not aware of my surroundings, or possible dangers. Nor does it mean that I am careless.
We’ve discussed situational awareness here before, and this is similar. When we are alert, we are better able to understand what is happening,what is taking place, both within and without. Which also helps us to stay knowledgeable.
But this message talks, too, of Self-Care. Taking Care is another way of saying CareGiver*, so today we won’t be having a daily draw. Instead, I’m sharing my other calendar page for the month. Because when we start with caring for our selves, we are also caring for our Mother.
*The Giving and Taking being a fair energy exchange.
Along the side we have this, from the 2014 version of “You Can Heal Your Life”:
“I love this marvelous planet.
The earth is a wise and loving mother. She provides everything we could ever need. There is water, food, air, and companionship. We have an infinite variety of animals, vegetation, birds, fish, and other natural wonders.
We have treated this planet very poorly, using up valuable resources. If we continue, we will have no place to live.
I commit to lovingly taking care of and improving the quality of life in this world. My thoughts are clear and loving and concerned. I express random acts of kindness whenever I can. It is my planet, and I help to make it a better place to live.
I imagine a peaceful planet, with a clean, healthy environment for all. I see all the people on the planet opening their hearts and their minds and working together to create a world where it is safe for us to love each other.
It is possible, and it begins with me.”
Thank you, Louise Hay. This is the perfect way to celebrate Earth Day. (I apologize for the rhyme, it was unintentional, but also unavoidable.)
