World Environment Day is celebrated on 5 June every year, and is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of our environment. This year the theme of World Environment Day 2020 is “Celebrate Biodiversity“. “With 1 million species facing extinction, there has never been a more important time to focus on biodiversity.”
Time for nature
The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. For instance, each year, marine plants produce more than a half of our atmosphere’s oxygen, and a mature tree cleans our air, absorbing 22 kilos of carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in exchange. Despite all the benefits that our nature give us, we still mistreat it.That is why we need to work on that. That is why we need this Observance.
World Environment Day is the most renowned day for environmental action. Since 1974, it has been celebrated every year on 5 June: engaging governments, businesses, celebrities and citizens to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.
In 2020, the theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States, and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa – and now, a global disease pandemic – demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life, in which they exist.
Biodiversity and its connection to humans
Biodiversity is the foundation that supports all life on land and below water. It affects every aspect of human health, providing clean air and water, nutritious foods, scientific understanding and medicine sources, natural disease resistance, and climate change mitigation. Changing, or removing one element of this web affects the entire life system and can produce negative consequences.
Human actions, including deforestation, encroachment on wildlife habitats, intensified agriculture, and acceleration of climate change, have pushed nature beyond its limit. It would take 1.6 Earths to meet the demands that humans make of nature each year. If we continue on this path, biodiversity loss will have severe implications for humanity, including the collapse of food and health systems.
The emergence of COVID-19 has underscored the fact that, when we destroy biodiversity, we destroy the system that supports human life. Today, it is estimated that, globally, about one billion cases of illness and millions of deaths occur every year from diseases caused by coronaviruses; and about 75 per cent of all emerging infectious diseases in humans are zoonotic, meaning that they are transmitted to people by animals.
Nature is sending us a message.
The Earth Our Mother:
Modern life gives us so many doo-dads, conveniences, and time-savers. We are saving time in order that we might waste more time and energy: the time wasting involves energy generated by fossil fuels, thus harming Mother Earth further. It has been raised by Saints and Ascended masters that we attend to the most important question: Where would we be without the Earth our Mother?
The connection to the Earth our Mother is within the human, in the spirit. The body is made up of the same elements as the Earth. It has trace elements and metals, and electricity is within the body. Stand in front of a mirror in a dark room and begin combing or brushing your hair. Sparks will rise. Simple evidence that we are of the same nature as the earth and must care for the Earth. All God’s creation is very good! As you care for yourself, your body, your clothing, your home, so also, we can be responsible to Mother Earth and follow right conduct, right behaviour, right action – dharma in a word, and take good care of our Mother Earth.
The Mother Energy
God is creation-preservation-dissolution; the preservation energy is the Mother Energy. It is in all that exists; it is this energy which is needed now.
It is the Mother energy that is needed to be recognised upon this Earth now. So that wars are not sought nor fought. Conjunct the Mother energy resolution of disputes and conflicts can take place between people if they respect and love one another. This is the energy of the Mother … the force of the Mother that comes from the Source of All, the Source of All Creation.
This is the energy that comes with new birth in whatever form. It comes in insects, in birds, in reptiles, in animals and in humans. The babies come with the Mother energy; the Mother energy is symbolized and is signified in the female of the species. This takes place even within the flowers and other life forms upon the Earth.
It is an energy that reaches out and encloses, comforts, nurtures, heals … … and gives up-liftment. It is that energy that helps things to grow .. it is not hard to see the little embryo forming in a mother’s womb and growing … . it is that Mother energy of love and compassion.
Everybody on this Earth should understand that they are the Mother in themselves. We all have 22 x and 22 y chromosome pairs within our bodies, so all are seeded with both the male and female energy. Even if they are born into a male form they will have they Creative Source of all within them; they are God and the God comes with the-Mother-the Father-and-the-nurturing. God from the Source of All Creation is Love and Compassion. It is Universal Love. Everyone may honour that .. respect it and take it into their bosom, into their heart; and in return give it back to all that is around them … in all that they are doing, whatever work, perform it with love and know it goes with the Mother, the care … and the love of the work.
