Love Lives Here: EARTH Day Edition
Today's Art Feature:
California Super Bloom PHOTO BY Carlos G, The Malibu Artist
According to the World Economic Forum, California has been declared totally drought free for the first time in more than seven years, following unusually abundant winter rains and snowfall statewide. The U.S. Drought Monitor's March survey reflected an astonishing turnaround - at least for now - from a severe, prolonged dry spell that reduced irrigation supplies to farmers, forced strict household conservation measures and stoked a spate of deadly, devastating wildfires.
Trees by Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Today's Tribute to Barbara Marx Hubbard:

I actually think every person can make a difference.
Every single human being has within the impulse to express
more of who they truly are. ~ Barbara Marx Hubbard

Today's Drawdown Feature:
"Biological diversity is messy. It walks, it crawls, it swims, it swoops, it buzzes.
But extinction is silent, and it has no voice other than our own." ~ Paul Hawken
Today's Drawdown Collective Intention: AFFORESTATION. "Afforestation-creating forests where there were none before-creates a carbon sink, drawing in and holding on to carbon and distributing it into the soil." Our collective intention is to PLANT MORE TREES! It is time for trees!
The Arbor Day Foundation is soon to celebrate their 150 Anniversary of Arbor Day. Help them meet their goal to plant 100 million trees in forests and communities and inspire 5 million new tree planters by 2022. You can also help Tree Sisters with their goal of moving from 1 million to 1 billion trees. YOU can do your part. Have you ever thought about turning your backyard into a forest? See the videos below and be inspired.

GOOD of the WHOLE offers a "mentorship" instead of membership. As stewards of the WholeWorld-View and mentors for the evolution of consciousness, we collectively dwell on the evolutionary edge, ground heart-based initiatives and practices, and listen for new and emerging social forms. We gather with a deep sense of knowing and trust the unified field to guide us. Our co-mentoring community is here to learn, teach, grow, embody, and expand together, as we evolve, and express ourselves for the greater good. Mentoring Stewards are both mentor and mentored for the GOOD of the WHOLE. Myriad benefits include conscious synergistic connection and generative community support.

Today's FEATURED Earth Movie Courtesy of Films for the Planet:
Get ready to shift your frame from individual "me" to the collective "we" as we
discover earth as a super organism that utilizes cooperative self-organization to
create and maintain the conditions essential to our existence as interconnected
living beings on an immensely beautiful planet.
Today's Loving Waters
Tribute with Charlie Riverman Bergeron:
Returning from the silence of Winter
We honor both the Earth and the Water
and their dance of life-giving Love
Spring has come to the Mountain
with an abundance of water
precious wildlife awaits warmer weather
Barren trees are filling with energy
as Mother Earth slowly savors
and shares her precious water with all
The marshland now swollen and overflowing
will soon begin to recede and reveal
the precious blossoms of joyous abundance
The birds which have journeyed to be here
await to feast on the many grasses and wild berries
each appearing in their own natural timing
Charlie Riverman Bergeron 4.12.19
