I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Six and the concept of local air/water/other pollution problem solving:

Local air/water/other pollution problem solving

As years have gone by and our industrialization has flourished we, as a nation, have become careless with how much pollution of our air, water, and soil has been accepted as the price of our progress. This pollution has become so rampant that it is now evident to a growing number of Americans that we can no longer ignore the damage that has been done. More and more people are standing up for Gaia, our Mother Earth, and have attempted to have laws passed concerning reducing the amount of pollution that is permissible. People are also actively involved on the local level to see what improvements they can personally make in their communities.

And this kind of a need for solving pollution problems in the world is still being created by actions today such as the decision last Thursday, May 25, 2023, by the U.S. Supreme Court that cut the protection of water provided by the Clean Water Act to a disastrous degree. The Clean Water Act of 1972 regulates the amount of pollutants that can be discharged into local rivers, lakes, and wetlands. The 5-4 ruling sided with the Sackett family in Idaho who sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency more than a decade ago after the agency blocked them, under provisions of the Clean Water Act, from developing their property. Here in Kentucky, according to last Tuesday’s Louisville Courier-Journal newspaper (May 30, 2023) this decision “threatens the wellbeing of the wetlands areas which have already been reduced in their size by 80% of their original area. Now advocacy groups are worried that this ruling would open the door for increased agricultural runoff, threatening drinking water supplies with chemicals like nitrates, while others said it could represent an erosion of water protections as a whole.” U.S. Senator Mitch McConnel, who is from Kentucky, celebrated the ruling as “long-awaited relief and much needed clarity for businesses and landowners.” So in the name of businesses being able to make more money, Mother Earth must pay yet another price of having her waters polluted. Q’uo speaks to this type of situation where they said:

All around you there are those who have polluted and destroyed the Earth, and you experience this perhaps in terms that are local to you—a plant that is emitting toxic emissions. If this moves you, see what you can do in your village or your neighborhood to make a change for the better. Become compassionate stewards of Mother Earth, for Gaia is most grateful to those who help her to become more healthy.

Indeed, we especially encourage you in your stewardship of the Earth. For there is a tremendous amount of what this instrument would call “group karma” having to do with the fact that so many of those who are attempting to graduate from third density on planet Earth have, in the past, on Sirius, Deneb, Mars, Maldek or Atlantis, destroyed their environments. There is great heart-sadness amongst the entire human tribe concerning the destruction of Mother Earth. And it is very healing, in your energy patterns as a people, wherever you live, to become involved in loving and serving your beautiful, fragile island home.” Q’uo, July 31, 2007

Q’uo exhorted all of us to give our utmost effort in helping to heal our Mother Earth. So many people on Earth have not only taken part in despoiling our planet through destructive anger at all levels of society—from interpersonal relationships to military operations–but some have actually done the same on other planets within our solar system. They are on Earth now for the purpose of reversing that type of behavior while in this incarnation. The degradation of pollution is a current problem that is planet-wide with huge islands of plastic floating in various parts of our oceans with significant pollution of lakes, rivers, and ground water as well.

Your peoples for many, many generations have had the unfortunate tendency—and we say unfortunate because it is sorrowful, both to your soul and the soul of Earth itself—to see the self as the predator and the conqueror, not considering the realm as a whole or how the parts might fit together, but considering only short-term goals. “I want water here, therefore, we shall dam up the water to create water here where there was not water before.”

Does it come into the mind of the predator what that damming up of a natural resource will do to Mother Earth who had a balanced aquifer system? No, for that is not a concern to one who has separated itself from Mother Earth. Consequently, there is also a substantial list of species that have declined and become extinct because of the lack of stewardship and the ascent of predation on the part of the humans to who Mother Earth was entrusted. Q’uo, December 19, 2009.

Here Q’uo is talking about a very basic frame of mind of most people in our country who do not see the unified relationship between Mother Earth and her population of human beings and all other forms of life as well. The veil of forgetting seems to have such a thick composition for most people that it is easy to think only of the self and the self-centered needs of people to become what Q’uo called predators or conquerors of the environment in which they live rather than stewards of the environment and the various life forms that thrive within the natural environment. This type of point of view and sense of being does not have the over view of the entire system of Mother Earth and how all parts are interrelated, but sees only the short-term needs of the separated self—acknowledged through such practices of creating dams, clear-cutting large areas of forest to create locations for businesses or subdivisions, and mining coal by dynamiting the topsoil and stone enhancing flooding by rain runoff. However, there are more and more people these days who are aware of the dire consequences of such behavior and are seeking to re-establish the crucial link of the survival of all forms of life as a system of interrelated forms, each necessary for the well-being of all.

Each of us can take part in the cleaning up of our local environments, from our own yards and neighborhoods to nearby lakes and rivers. We all can do something to give love and respect to Mother Earth as a way of life. We can join with others who are of like mind to form groups to clean up our neighborhoods, rivers, beaches, walking trails, or whatever part of our communities need cleansing and healing. There are groups in every city that are dedicated to these types of concerns, and the Player on the Enhanced Game Board of life will be able to give of time, talents, and donations to help demonstrate the proper love and care for their environment.

This morning I set the sprinkler in various locations to water my gardens as it has been a while since we have gotten rain and none is in the forecast. Then I ran a series of errands with my first stop being at Walgreen’s Drug Store to get the booster Shingles vaccination, and while I was there I purchased a number of items that were on my shopping list. My second stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to pick up some food for myself. Then I went to Kroger’s to buy some coconut water and shredded cheese. My last stop was at the vet’s to pick up some meds for Benny.

This afternoon I decided to try to solve the unusual situation where the fountain in the fish pond is only a couple of inches tall instead of a couple of feet tall as it has been until a few days ago. So I took the pump that is currently being used out of the pond and replaced it with another pump. I was thrilled to see the fountain shoot up to about two feet in height from what was previously about 4 inches in height. Then I spent about half an hour walking around the yard looking for an earring that a friend lost at last weekend’s Homecoming Gathering. Unfortunately, I didn’t find it, but I will continue to keep my eyes out for it as I do my daily work in my gardens.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

June 1

Eternal Peace

I am the voice of Jesus the Christ in the world today. I greet you in the full consciousness of love.

The kittens upon this instrument’s lap bask in each other’s affection. The sounds of the neighborhood, the barking of dogs, the singing of birds, the crunch of far-away tires on gravel filter gently through the cool summer morning and all seems ecstatic, peaceful and easy.

Yet this is a peace of this experience. There is a further peace, a peace beyond understanding, the advent of which comes to one who finally perceives the eternal peace of which all the sensual descriptions are but small manifestations.

Carry this eternal peace in your thoughts, in your heart, and in your actions this day. The situations that seem not so peaceful to the world may still be blessed by your perception, founded in Christ.

It is in the love and the peace of Jesus the Christ that we leave you now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.
