A Delightful Visit from a Gaia Friend

Ben and Laurie

Early this week we had a visit from my Gaia friend, Ben. Many of the rest of you know him, too. He drove all the way from Nashville, Tennessee to help celebrate his Dad’s 80th birthday, and while he was in the greater Chicagoland area, he came to HolEssence for a wonderful visit.

Let me tell you, the pleasure was all ours! What beautiful energy and heart this man has. Look at the photograph, you can just see it.

If you’re ever in our neck of the woods—Crystal Lake, Illinois—I hope you’ll stop in for a visit.

Listen with your heart,

Seven Generations

Gaia Our Home by Laurie Buchanan

Gaia Our Home by Laurie Buchanan

Barbara’s blog post, Earth Consciousness, was extremely thought-provoking, and served to stir the pot a little more …

The universe is a living connected organism. When we embrace this, when we really take this to heart, there will be a tremendous shift in behavior; individually and collectively. When we understand our relationship to Gaia—Mother Earth—we’ll cease dumping, strip mining and polluting our home. When we understand our relationship to each other—we are one—greed, envy, and fighting will cease; we’ll treat each other and our environment with respect.

When we truly understand how we fit into the big picture, we’ll teach our children the Seven Generation mind/heart set; a sound ecological concept that admonishes the current generation of humans to work for the benefit of the seventh generation into the future and to replenish what we use, leaving enough for the next seven generations in line. Imagine if humankind recognized Nature as a critical partner—the positive global change would be staggering!

“In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation … even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine.” —Great Law of the Iroquois
