In Parts 1 and 2 I discussed why individuals need a gentle touch. We all come from a society that encouraged judgement, criticism, competition – and many other types of disempowering attitudes that caused us to contract from the love that we are at our core.
Conflicts from what we experienced or witnessed in our life along with this disconnect from the love of our true self, we are all dealing with our emotional worlds as best as we can. This often plays out as dysfunctions and unloving attitudes and behaviors.
This understanding helps us be kinder, gentler, and more compassionate with people who hurt us or act badly.
In this part 3, I discuss how Gaia, our planet, has not only been injured by the physical abuses we have put upon her; she has also been negatively affected by the emotional abuses we have put upon her.
Gaia is a living, breathing organism. To help her hear, she too needs our gentleness. The Indigenous peoples know this. And just like with each other and with the animals who walk the earth, we have abused her, and so we need help her heal.
Our Home; Mother Earth
In past times, we held a reciprocal relationship with Gaia. She gave to us through her bounty. We took and shared her gifts – with gratitude, and we looked after her. The Indigenous peoples still adhere to this concept of reciprocity, and still believe in the premise of “enough.”
Our planet has suffered physically through industrialization and our greed. We have been inconsiderate of her air, water, land, forests, and resources.
We are now seeing the repercussions of many of the decisions made decades ago. Some of these we made unaware of the long-term consequences; others, we knew there would be consequences and either ignored or buried the research.
We have gotten used to the many luxuries that we now consider our right – many of them attained at her expense. We have gone beyond the concept of “enough.”

Our planet has also suffered from the emotional abuses we have put upon her.
All the unfairness, judgments, prejudices, hate, injustices, and cruelty we have directed towards each other, groups of people, like through genocides and wars, or even towards the animals have affected her.
Because she is a living, breathing organism and it all happened within her boundaries, she too has suffered when those living upon her suffered.
Gaia, Mother Earth, our beautiful planet
has had to shrug off all of these physical and emotional abuses.
And even though she is still in an evolutionary stage and some upheavals are normal, many of the recent turbulent weather patterns are because of her releasing this negative energy we have put upon her.
She too requires our gentleness to help her overcome what she has suffered.
It is urgent that we now not only consider her air, water, land, forests, and resources when making our current decisions, but we must also aim to repair damage already done to her.
We Are All Doing Our Little Parts – One Way Or Another
We have to work on both the practical and spiritual levels to bring about the world we all want where love, peace, compassion, kindness, gentleness, fairness, and equality reign.
We have to look after everyone and care for everything on the planet, including Gaia herself.
And we have to be gentle, kind, and loving to everyone we come in contact with – and to all living organisms.
We all have wounds from the abuses of past generations that show up in how we think, react, and behave – how we navigate the world. We all need to be shown kindness and love to help us heal from these wounds.
And we also have to show our planet love and gentleness so she can heal.
There IS enough in world to go around, and we have the know-how to ensure everyone on the planet has what they need to be healthy and thrive. Society needs to address the many practical issues that are hindering us bringing this about.
We must ensure people are and feel safe, have enough food and clean water to become and stay healthy, and continue to work on everyone having access to sanitary plumbing systems.
Working towards solving these issues is paramount
to making the necessary changes, but we also have to create
the atmosphere to inspire people to do so.
We do this by raising the awareness about the issues, while at the same time raising the consciousness of the planet – raising its vibration, which we do through every positive and uplifting thought, word, and deed.
This will help us rekindle the feelings of love within and our connectedness to each other – to the Oneness we are all a part of, and inspire us to work towards the good of all.
There is a lot of need in the world – individually and collectively, and nobody can answer it all: we can only do our little bit.
And we must be careful not to judge what people are, or don’t seem to be doing to bring it about. Most of us are doing something to help Humanity and the planet – in one way or another.
Some of our efforts have a large visible impact.
most do not – but ALL are equally important.
?From monks and yogis spending their days in prayer and meditation …
?to people doing their best to live their lives with joy, passion, compassion, kindness, acceptance, and/or integrity …
?and people working for animal and human rights …
?to those working in associations and governments for the betterment of us all …
?and to those who rally others into action.
Every little thing we do to raise our vibration and every expression
of love and gentleness towards people, animals, and the Planet work in tandem.
This help us ALL heal from what we inherited – and often still hold from past generations.
And this is what will move us towards the loving, caring, supportive, and sharing society we are meant to be.
