Please help save our Bee’s

Most of you know how passionate I am about Gardening and doing so without pesticides or herbicides. Progress of my garden and allotment can be found HERE

 So it was with great dismay I learnt of the decision of our British Government to allow certain banned pesticides to be used on farms here in the UK.

 Please Sign the Petition here Thank you. 

 

The following article is from Avaaz,

Dear friends,

The government has just allowed bee-killing pesticides to be unleashed across Britain’s farms, threatening the butterflies and bugs we rely on to grow our food.

Scientists’ warnings got these pesticides banned across the European Union,but the government has caved in to the powerful pesticide industry and the National Farmers Union to let them be used here again. It’s up to us to stop this madness — if we continue to poison our pollinators, the hedgerows, fields and fruit trees of this country will end up silent.

Overturning a decision like this is going to take an unprecedented number of us speaking up. But we can do it: nearly 3% of British internet users are getting this email. If each of us signs and gets just one friend to sign we can reach 6%, if each of us gets two people, we can reach 9%, etc etc. Sharing the petition online could have the ripple effect we need — click to sign now and share on Facebook, Twitter, email, everywhere:

While the rest of Europe has backed a ban and seen their bee numbers are continuing to recover, the farming lobby in Britain has always preferred an industrialised chemical-powered approach to agriculture and with an attitude which says “as long as the yields are good, to hell with the consequences!”

It’s true that some reports show that neonicotinoids can deliver a short-term improvement on harvests, yet if we carry on using these pesticides the wider impact on critical pollinators will be catastrophic. Last Parliament, we saw how frustrated the government can get when presented with evidence-based science, doing all it could to block Europe bee-saving moratorium for pesticide use. Now it wants to go it alone across our green and pleasant lands.

But we know they are nervous — gagging scientists from speaking out and burying notes from previous meetings. We have also seen how u-turns are possible, with the fox hunting vote killed off — but that was only possible because a petition went completely viral with thousands of people sharing with their friends and family. Let’s do it this time for the bees. Sign the petition and share it now everywhere you can think:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/save_the_bees_keep_the_ban_national/?blGazab&v=62464

Two years ago, Avaaz members across Europe came together to introduce the first continent wide-ban on neonicotinoids. Let’s do it again and get rid of these crazy poisons in the UK once and for all.

With hope and determination,

Sam, Nick, Luis, Antonia, Lisa and the whole Avaaz team

The Journey Continues~ Keep Going

As I have been travelling around my WordPress family the last couple of days, some of you are going through your own particular bends in the road right now.  

You all know who you are.

I just want to dedicate this video to all of you who are encountering some bumps in the road.

And to give you the words of  Joseph Marshall lll  to

” Keep Going”

Sending Love and Blessings to you All.

Come with me on a Journey..

 Nature’s Colours

 

 

Colours are all around us, but do we really see.

We take every thing for granted, and act so seriously

Have you ever stopped to think, if the world was black and white.

Close your eyes for a minute think! What if you had no sight?

Never to see a tree full with shades of green.

Never to know the blues of skies and ocean seas.

 

 

Come with me on a journey, back to nature and discover

Open your eyes see afresh full of colour.

Collecting sacks of yellow is our busy bumblebee.

Making lots of honey in his hide amongst the trees.

Surrounded by the flowers, whose colours are so bold?

Colours of a rainbow, now there’s your pot of gold.

 

 

Rose red, primrose yellow, oranges and apples green.

Tell me, who created all these lovely scenes.

Dazzling bright, smoothly blending, colours of the spectrum.

Every colour you can imagine is Gods almighty emblem.

Eagles circling with effortless ease, around a snow capped mountain

Reflecting sunlight upon a lake. Cascading like a fountain.

 

Wildlife in our forests before they cut the trees,

Tiger, Bear, and Panda and swinging Chimpanzees

Icecaps snowy beauty of Seal and Polar Bear,

Icebergs that comes crashing in the warming sunny glare.

 

 

The fish deep in the ocean, the salmon in the stream.

All full of beauty, much better than any dream.

So when you next open up your eyes.

Look and SEE you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

At the beauty, which surrounds us, and it’s absolutely free.

For which I pray to thank our Lord, most gratefully.

Love Verses Hate.

 

Isn’t it strange how Synchronicity works?. But then when you get to see how this Universe really works, its not so strange at all..

I was drawn to take up the gauntlet of another challenge  over at http://mammadebbs.com The moment my mind decided to do so, as I caught up with some of my blogging community I was not surprised to see the trail of Synchronicity at work to help me put a post together.

Now firstly I rarely say the word Hate.. I prefer to say ‘Dislike’. Hate to me has a far deeper meaning. There are many things in this world I ‘Dis-like’. Tyranny, Abuse, Exploitation, War, Racism, and the list can go on and on. Hate on the other hand holds for me a different kind of energy.

We all know there are lots of Bad things happening in the world,because we are constantly told about them. And yet I also know many Good things are also being shared in this world. Many which we do not get to see..

There IS much LOVE in this world, and I also know how lucky I am living the life I do. For there are many shoes I would not wish to walk in. Yet we are all of us upon our paths, and all of us have choices. All of us are contributing to our experience within our Material Earth Walk.  I constantly give thanks daily for the Gifts I have been given and the path I am able to follow. 

Why do we humans seem to revel in Bad News, disasters, as we Gossip, and spread rumours?  Why is it so hard to show Love and share all those who do good.. I did some sharing of  bad news  on Dreamwalker’s Gardening blog where the allotments were broken into. Again I count my blessings.

The one thing I often speak about is Energy, Thoughts are Energy, its all about the energy we put out.

You see its all a matter of altering our perspective.

The first post I wish to share is Miro’s , I had been meaning to re-blog this post for some time  and asked his permission some months back. His wonderful poetry brings to the fore a True Warrior who is not afraid to do battle. He has been through his own Battles through out his life and yet he stands tall and is a true warrior worthy of his blog title Warrior Poets Wisdom . I invite you to listen to one of his Posts  in which he narrates his poem entitled LOVE Thy Enemy .

The second post I am sharing is also Poetry.. Kimberly has been through her own health struggles recently and here she shares her perspective on the seeds of Hope in her poetry as she speaks about “ The Weeds of Hate has taken over the gardens of purity”

My third post share is of pure LOVE this one literally popped up in my reader as I was writing this post so has to be shared  And This is how much I love you by MichelleMarie.  Thank you Michelle for all the Love you do share over at Tell Me About It 

And lastly as I conclude this Long post I just wish to share a couple of paragraphs I wrote several years on a post call ‘Finding Our Sacred Centre’ Where I said “

“Each of us in small ways can do amazing things through aligning our ‘Will’ of that of evolution, growing ‘light’, defeating the ‘darkness’ of inertia, lethargy and despair. We may find that part of our work in this world we live is focused towards the healing arts. Like myself I work among those who are disadvantaged  by the mere fact of their disabilities, whether that be physically or mentally challenged. It never ceases to amaze me how happy these wonderful individuals are with their lot in life. And how despite their difficulties they strive to take part, and never give in.”

“It has made me realise that each of us can Change the way we perceive our lot to be. Each of us can change our future, Heal the sick, improve humanities lot, if we so will and if we have the courage and the wisdom to know what’s right.”

Which of these Energies do you wish to see succeed? Are you sharing your LOVE?

Love and Blessings

Picture Update~ Grow your Own

Hello my patient fellow bloggers.. I am currently over this weekend working my way around to those who have left me such thoughtful responses over the last few weeks..  As I endeavour to catch up with many of your posts..  

How is your Summer going?

Mine has been very productive as well as restful in-between gardening, I have been resting, reading, oh and I finished off a knitting project also. And of course I have been keeping my eye on the ball in Wimbledon as the Tennis Season is in full swing.

I am learning to self Nurture!

I knitted this little Bolero too which is for a 3 to 6 mth old.  It didn't take long to make.

Challenges~ We all face them.

We are so lucky, those of us here within the WordPress Community, we skip around our various friends posts, viewing and visiting far away places, as we share ideas, dreams, insights and visions.

Our lives may vary in culture, distance and ways of living, yet I am sure we count ourselves lucky to be free to choose among the variety of life gifts we are privileged in sharing in our everyday lives..  

I am also taking on a small challenge as I was listed in Ka’s post HERE in a 3 quote challenge While I have stopped receiving   awards, I am always up for a ‘challenge’ and my 3 quotes reflect people who overcame tremendous challenges in their lives and turned their lives around to make theirs and others better along their journey to Freedom..

I have long admired the man of this quote, and have read much about his life and his journey upon this Earth Life  While I was enjoying the Swinging 60’s this man was suffering his long prison sentence for daring to ‘challenge’ the establishment on its treatment of black people. And this is a Quote many of us throughout our lives can relate to.

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”

Nelson Mandela

My next quote is from Nick Vujicic 

Nicks challenges have been huge, born without arms and legs it didn’t let it stop him from showing others there are No Limits to our capabilities.. What a recent Video here of Nick shows he Never gave up and now has a wonderful wife and child and he has inspired many to overcome their own personal challenges. 

So many of us allow Fear to stop us from striding forward into the unknown, we came here to experience LIFE!..  I hope we Live more in our Now moments and enjoy all Life has to offer.

Which is what I am doing this Summer as I embrace each brand new day. 

My Last quote is what I have had upon the bottom of me email for a few years and it says.. 

      “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi was another remarkable man, who brought Change to his world,

a few more facts about his life can be found HERE

The Challenge of creating a New World which holds more Peace and Love than Fear and Hate falls upon All of Us..

If we hold Anger, Hate, and judgements and let the few who hold terror and fear over us, then we allow them to win.

We need to alter our own ways of BEing to bring about Peace and stop our own Pettiness and squabbles. And show LOVE overcomes HATE and that PEACE begins in each of our Hearts..

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
