Return of the Natives Planting Day

Return of the Natives

Today in the Adventure of Truth, we participated in a planting event with Return of the Natives. At Zmudowski beach in Monterey Bay, we planted 1200 native plants including Sagewort, Buckwheat, and Beach Primrose. In coordination with students at California State University in Monterey Bay, we assisted in planting these native plants to help the sand dunes that line along the beautiful coastline. The ecosystems that these dunes support will gain stability with the introduction of these plants. Many insects and animals, including the Snowy Plover bird and the Smith’s Blue Butterfly who use the vegetation for protection, will enjoy a more balanced habitat.

In the early 1900’s, ice-plant was introduced to the coastline of California with the intention of holding shifting sand more stable for the construction of railroad tracks. However, the introduction of ice-plant has begun to lessen the biodiversity of the delicate ecosystem that the dunes support, and its effects are felt.

With continued effort and awareness, Return of the Natives progresses with this work and many other projects alike with the intention of creating a better tomorrow. Awareness of these environmental issues and remedial projects continues to grow and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share in restoring the one common habitat that we as humans share together, Mother Earth.

Essence of Water

View this post on Instagram

“To experience what the world has to offer, you have to learn from the greatest teacher on earth, Nature” – @iceman_hof • • Water embodies the heart of the world, for it does not make mistakes but simply flows, meandering its way through infinite change without hesitation. As a conductor of energy, it is a conduit of information from earth. We may open the doors of our perception to embody the wisdom of water. Flowing our way through life, we gather elements of our true human nature. The power of the present moment demonstrates the essence of water, while gifting a feeling of oneness that permeates all things. We begin to remember that this universe is connected and alive. We are here to remember this essence, and know thyself to be an infinite creator✨

On the Wings of Awareness

View this post on Instagram

Waiting in the wings of our awareness is the understanding of the dynamics of manifestation. • • When one weighs down choices with the complexity of feelings of obligation rather than with one’s pure heart’s desire, the resulting manifestation is muddied by the energy of conflict. It then becomes clear that the choices made must be a reflection of ones true intent and the instrument of ones will, rather than an adaptation that has been created to accommodate the expectations and needs of others. A grasp on this feeling reveals that it is a natural part of the human condition to manifest the heart’s desire. When loyalty is shifted to one’s own shoulders, life’s work alters to reflect an innate sense of joy in being alive, and the harmony we seek then begins to thrive ~ #Oneness

Communities for Sustainable Monterey County

Today at The Peace and Justice Center in Seaside, CA, activists in the local community gathered to present accomplishments and connect with others in an effort to collaborate while facilitating positive change within local communities. At this meeting, the potential to develop available local land by implementing permaculture and healing projects was explored. These opportunities are currently being pursued!
