the honeybees need our love!
when I lived on Maui, rainbows were an almost every day occurrence. Their beauty filled my soul and nourished me
I have seen only one rainbow in the sky since living in Los Angeles
we need more rainbows in our lives!
think rainbows for health. Eat food that is the color of rainbows. If you are buying (or, even better, gathering your food from a garden!) and preparing food, notice the rainbow colors, the textures. Let your fingertips feel gratitude for the fresh rainbow colored fruits and vegetables.
Do you know that simply touching fruits and vegetables allows you to receive vital life force energy? It does! Fruits and vegetables are filled with energy! Let your eyes caress their forms with love and gratitude. Be thankful that they lay down their lives for you. This can teach you about surrender, acceptance, and just fulfilling your own nature - doing what is yours to do. In India, there is a word for this; it is called dharma - one's duty.
Let your eyes be hands that loving caress with gratitude all the beautiful fruits and vegetables that give you life so abundantly.
Here is a special request, which I will make again and again. It is from the Nature Spirits. It is about the honeybees - the honeybees who are losing their lives, losing their way home - the honeybees - without whom we will lose our flowers and fruits and vegetables. Please! Plant pesticide and herbicide free flowers, herbs, and gardens - even ONE lavender bush - even ONE rose bush - even ONE strawberry plant - even ONE tomato plant and in this way -
- give back to the earth that so graciously gives to you - provide unpoisoned pollen for the honey bees. This will strengthen their immune systems and give them the ability to overcome diseases.
Perhaps we cannot change the face of the world today - perhaps we cannot end the war in Iraq today - perhaps we cannot do many things - but we CAN do something - and what we CAN do - we must do. For our own lives to be happy, we must each fulfill our own dharma - we must live in harmony with nature.
And if you believe that saving the honeybees is important - if you love rainbows - share this Love and serve the honeybees who so graciously serve us by pollinating the flowers that become the fruits, vegetables, and nuts that give us both life and beauty.
together we can do what we can do - we can work in harmony the way bees do - we cannot pollinate all the flowers - but we can each of us plant at least ONE lovely non-poisoned plant - wherever we are. If you live in a city of concrete and cement, then be creative. Plant in a window or on a rooftop. Find or create a garden plot in the city. Be proactive!
Right now, millions of dollars are being spent to try and find out why the honeybees are dying. The angels say - we do not need millions of dollars to understand - we can understand for free that we need to clean up the earth. Understanding is always free. And understanding sets us free.
We need millions of people to join together to plant pesticide and herbicide free seeds and plants. We need millions of people to refuse to support a society and government that condones the use of the poisons that are poisoning the bees. Without bees, we lose our fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Think about it! No red strawberries! No succulent watermelons! No orange juice! We lose the scent and sight of flowers and apple blossoms! No beautiful rainbows surrounding us in flowers, fruits, vegetables! We lose our rainbows! We lose our health. Our world turns gray.
The bees are not different from the tiny cells in our bodies. Nature is a reflection of the way that we, as humans, live our lives. Right now the little cells in our own bodies are having trouble finding their way home. The more polluted and contaminated the earth becomes, the harder it is for the little cells in our bodies to work together in harmony, the harder it is for us to find our way home, and for there to be peace on earth.
We need rainbows. We cannot live happy productive lives without rainbows.
So plant a rainbow today. Tend it with love. Watch it grow. Hold a bright red tomato in your hand that you grew by yourself. From your own little garden, gather a bunch of scented lavender. Harvest your own purple eggplant, an orange carrot, a red radish, a green cucumber.
Let's start a rainbow revolution! Let's heal the earth. Let's love the honeybees!
And now I must go meditate on the bees surrounding my lavender bush, water my roses, and kiss the aloe good morning.
