Thursday Thoughts from Rev. Jan Mourning

Thursday, April 23, 2020

Hello, everyone.  Yesterday was the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.  Recently I saw a political cartoon by Dave Grandthat that read:

Earth Day 2020 Report

“There’s less air pollution from cars.”

“We’ve got less industrial pollution!”

“Less noise pollution at airports.”

“And lots less litter on streets!”

“All it took was a global pandemic shutdown.”


I know that from chaos comes positive change.  Perhaps just one of the changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic is that we are being kinder to Mother Earth and one another.   Let’s celebrate Earth Day every day by setting the intention to continue to show love and compassion to our precious planet and to all humankind.

The following guidelines are from our friends at Heart Math Institute:

Care Focus: Appreciating Our Earth

1. Breathe feelings of peace and love through your heart area for a few minutes to set a calm and genuine tone.

2. Now connect in the heart with all people around the planet who are appreciating and caring for our Earth. Feel the collective heart power amplifying the effectiveness of our care.

3. Hold a vision of a pristine restoration for all of nature – oceans, rivers, trees, plants and animals that live on our Earth.

4. Now imagine a ring of compassionate heart energy surrounding our planet and see it dissipating humanity’s separation and lack of harmonious cooperation. See humanity awakening to next-level energetic connection with nature and understanding of how our feelings and behavior patterns affect Earth and our happiness.

5. Take a few minutes each day, if possible, to envision an increasing momentum of people opening their hearts and putting love and heart-felt connection into action.

6. Let’s close by sending our compassionate care to all who are experiencing stress from the coronavirus pandemic, from the Earth changes, from social injustices, and other areas of stress, as your heart guides you.
