Mothers Day, May 9, 2010:
Environmentally Supportive Online Gifts help Caring People Honor
Mothers, Motherhood and Mother Nature
A half a century ago, Walt
Kelly, through his cartoon character Pogo, said of Mother Nature's
alarming deterioration "We have met the enemy and he is
us." Today, our human and earth mothers continue to
face this profound problem complete with all its detrimental
effects. So how, on this Mothers' Day do we determine, and deal
with, the part of us that is the enemy to human and planetary
motherhood without feeling threatened by the implications?
For Mothers Day 2010, Dr. Michael
J. Cohen at Project NatureConnect has announced that an available
resolution to this conundrum has been found. And it is essential
to our future because even now, 42 years after Silent Spring,
scientists are reporting:
--levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have jumped abruptly
--marine "dead zones" are on the increase
--mental/emotional illness is increasing and ranks second in
the burden of disease in market economies.
On this Mother's Day our human
and planet mothers are at risk, along with us, their children.
Cohen, author of "The
Web of Life Imperative" says, "These maladies have
a common cause; they result from the part of us that
is the enemy, the part that continues to be separated from the
inherent nurturing, health and productivity of mother nature
and the teachings of any other good mother."
"Neither natural systems
nor mother nature-connected societies/cultures produce the acute
problems suffered by our contemporary society," say
Cohenm. "It is the separated ways from mother nature
in which we learn to think that causes these troubles. It
is essential to begin to recognize this in a deep and broad
way because the way we think is our destiny and the destiny of
mother earth, too."
Statistics show that more than seventy percent of the
population are now in counseling programs, self-help groups or
therapy of some kind. There is great dis-ease in our culture
and mother nature. Every leader and a citizen has the responsibility
to use their talents and influence to help our society and planet
mother. The Project NatureConnect tools to help us do this
are readily available as gifts this Mother's day.
Via Cohen's Mother's Day web site, the tools enable our
psych to genuinely tap into the regenerative healing and balancing
powers of mother nature. This thinking/feeling reconnection
to nature's peace and healing powers helps us to reverse
many of the problems we cause and thereby increases personal
and environmental wellness. The tools are a beautiful, appropriate
gift for Mother's Day, the essence of a bouquet of wildflowers.
Cohen says the nature-connecting
process helps us walk mother nature's socially and environmentally
responsible path to rewarding and renewing relationships and
livelihoods. Deep down, isn't that really what our human mother
wants for each of us and herself?

Cohen, at his Project NatureConnect
website (http://www.ecopsych.com) shows that
profound nature-reconnecting techniques are readily available
to the counseling, psychotherapy and healing community. He said,
"Their use helps us reverse our destructive trends by helping
us enjoy lasting nature-connected rewards that support us and
the environment. That is the same organic process practiced by
the animal and plant kingdoms. Without creating pollution or
garbage, that process produces and sustains nature's wellness
and healing ways."
"This Mother's Day is
the time for concerned therapeutic and healing individuals to
begin to use their special expertise to the welfare of nature
and humanity," says Cohen. "To accomplish this they
need the support of environmentally caring people and organizations.
Through organic, nature-connecting tools, therapists can address
our immediately rewarding but long-term detrimental ways of thinking
to which their clients, as well as they, have become bonded.
Cohen notes that, "Environmentalists
must find within themselves the wherewithal to understand and
support the therapeutic community in its efforts to produce an
ecologically sound mental environment. In addition environmentalists
can, to their advantage, use these new mental-environment improvement
tools as part of the environmental movement and education.
"Today's increases in global
warming and oceanic dead zones demonstrate that the nature-detached
thinking we have used for the past century can not accomplish
what we need to do"
Cohen says that, "Because
we are part of nature, nature itself has the power to help us
modify the harmful bonds or our deeply rooted conditioning, our
nature-conquering prejudices and our nature-destructive rewards.
This is because we inherit our ability to build emotional, often
subconscious, bonds from nature. Without enlisting nature's help
to transform our detrimental bonds into constructive relationships,
it may not be possible for us to produce the social and environmental
wellness we need, the wellness that supports all of life."
