Daily Reflection

TODAY, I nourish my habit to Take Care of Our Environment

Health Focus

Be Smoke-FREE!

Color Cue
Spring Green

It’s APRIL—time to refresh and renew our interest in the outdoors. Think green... “Spring” Green. Pick a nice day and go outside, take a deep breath and smell the fresh spring breeze. Ahhhhhhhh...  
That big breath of fresh air in our lungs is a good reminder to renew our commitment to the outdoor environment and to the future of the fragile planet we share. What we take care of today will be preserved for future generations. This is a time for us to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of the natural world.

The supreme reality of our time is the vulnerability of this, our planet.

— John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States

We know that our environment is made up of what we see, hear and breathe. What we often forget is that there is another climate that we live in—the climate of our relationships. Just for fun, here are a few silly jokes to boost your mood climate. They are only loosely connected to the environment but—so what?

Q. Where do baby cows eat?
A. In the Calf-eteria

Last night I had a dream that I was a tailpipe. I woke up exhausted.

Have a sunny breezy month. Think and wear spring green when you can. Take care of your environment.

Cosmic Comic Swami Beyondananda gives his unique take on the 12 Habits of Unity’s March Habit - Take Care of Our Environment.


“Hey, if we lose the Earth, there goes our GDP.
We need to be caretakers, not careless takers.” 

Swami Beyondananda


Isn’t it funny – or seriously tragic – that we are so focused on artificial intelligence and yet so out of touch with real intelligence? The real intelligence of nature – which is cosmic wisdom. This is the month to love nature, love the natural world, be present in it. Bring it into your life. Grow your own food, or visit a local farm where your food is being grown. Invest
in Community Supported Agriculture. Ask yourself, what can I habitually do to remember and practice love of nature?

There is no “PLANet B”...
