Happy Earth Day

Today is the day to remind ourselves that we can support our planet in her time of need. Because frankly .. its our time of need too - we are of course not removed from our Earth.. and every little bit of awareness that we can grow in relation to assisting with sustainability is needed now.

Simple things help.. no need to get complicated and think that you have no chance of making a difference. We can all make a difference. Today - just for one day - starting now, don't buy or take free any plastic bags, cover your food with another plate, buy food that is sold loose, not packaged in more stuff to throw away.

Walk when you can rather than jumping in the car for that short distance.

Turn off your electrical appliances - don't leave them on standby.. they use lots more power that way. Turn off unneeded lights.

Forget the chemicals and the pesticides - use natural fertilisers on your gardens and lawns.

Turn off your sprinklers to conserve our precious water - now the weather is cooler here in Oz and the grass is wet in the morning from the dew.

Stand up for our trees!

Here is some interesting info about what fish is healthier and more sustainable to eat - our oceans are fast becoming depleted - its up to us to shop responsibly.

And on this day - take some time to sit on the ground, to connect with the Mother Earth, and simply bless her for sustaining us all of this time.

Have a great Day!

The Tunnel

I subscribe to a daily email from Neale Donald Walsch - and just wanted to share his latest with you...
"......when you see the light at the end of the tunnel, it
is not beneficial to go out and build more tunnel.

It was John Quinton who observed that politicians do
that. Maybe you've caught yourself doing it, too. Just
when things look like they're getting better, you start
seeing more things that "aren't right," or "could go

The Universe is essentially a friendly place. So friendly,
in fact, that it will give you exactly what you expect
it to.

Isn't that wonderful? Of course, it depends on what
you expect..."

He has some gems.. and I enjoy the glimpses he gives that keep us on track! Go to his site and subscribe if you liked this one!

Have a great day

Comment on modern Government

We subscribe to a newsletter called The Daily Reckoning for another point of view on what is happening in the economical situation of the world.. and this comment in their email this morning I found to be very telling and despite the discomfort of it.. it made me smile!
--modern government has grown so grotesquely fat and ubiquitous that an entire generation of Westerners have been trained to think only the government can and should solve problems. It's like having an Uncle stuck in your living room who's become too fat to move. You have to feed and clean and care for him and after awhile he becomes a living piece of inconvenient and intrusive furniture right smack in the middle of your life.
Sounds like a call to wake up to our own responsibility in governing ourselves as well as in taking care of our health. What we see on the outside as the ills of the world are simply reflected in our own bodies and our own lives. If you are the person who is becoming too fat to move as you were designed by nature to do.. its time to take responsibility.

and of course if you need any help with that.. Best Health is still here.. we are committed to our own good health and to yours.
