Don’t Forget Your Most Precious Mother

It’s Mothers Day this week and it’s also a time to pay tribute to the Mother who truly provides for us—Mother Nature. Without a healthy Mother Earth, humanity could not survive.

Our planet is a beautiful and alive being. Think of the forests as the lungs of the Earth giving us life by giving us oxygen. A single tree creates oxygen 24 hours a day/7 days a week without any depleting energy from other sources or generating excess waste. Even the smartest men and women are not capable of doing this.

With her oxygen-producing forests, her fresh water rains and her enriched soil for growing food, Mother Earth truly provides all our needs.

But, we haven't taken care of our Mother, respected our Mother, loved our Mother.

Our unconscious and often unintended impacts have taken an enormous toll on the health of our planet. And recently, Mother Nature sent a message in the form of one enormous earthquake and tidal wave.

It's clear that technology—no matter how smart—is no match for the strength of Nature.

It turns out, that building nuclear power plants on seacoasts and seismic faults isn't a good idea after all.

Burning petroleum is dirty. It’s polluting everything around us and most probably warming up the planet. Cutting down rainforests to make newsprint and toilet paper isn't the highest use for the oxygen-factory lungs of our planet. We have created systems that plunder Nature and are not safe or sustainable, because of our seemingly insatiable hunger for inexpensive energy and more stuff.

What can an individual do to make a difference? Here's my simple recipe for the repair and healing of our planet and ultimately for ourselves:


Make more choices that nurture Mother Nature rather than harm her. 


Sure, recycling newspaper may seem meaningless when compared to the devastating photos of the Japanese coastline after the tsunami. But these small acts all add up. An individual bee makes less than a teaspoonful of honey in its lifetime. But, a hive produces pounds of sweet nectar each summer.

Like the bees, our individual acts can seem miniscule. But, when added up collectively, our hive has a huge impact.

We are all One. What happens in Japan and elsewhere is felt in the heart of humankind. We are all in this together. Let's go do some good. The Japanese people are still very much in need. Give what you can. Love yourself, Love one another, and leave a legacy of Love for Mother Earth.
