ways to support the oil spill in the gulf coast...

the oil spill in the gulf of mexico could be one of the worst man-made environmental disasters in history...and recently, i have been hearing people ask "how can i help? what can i do? the situation in the gulf of mexico is so overwhelming, and i am just one person...what can be done?"
well...below i have listed a few organizations that are on the front lines in an effort to support local groups that are working to clean up, support nature preserves and locally gathering resources and teams to help with this disaster. yes, we would all like to go there and help with this situation, but there are thousands of volunteers and organizations that need our help! and we can support them! so let's come together and share our resources with the greatest source of all...LIFE and our mother earth and ocean.

we can also offer this prayer together:

i'm sorry. please forgive me. i love you. thank you.

it is the ho'oponopono prayer of the huna tradition in hawaii...

ho'o/to bring about -

pono/correct, in perfect order -

ponopono/ attended to, connotes what is socially approved and desirable

a prayer to our mother ocean

Low rising crescent moon
Above the horizon where
The ocean meets you
Venus sits above your stoop
And I humbly bow
as I recognize your power
The oceans are burning now
The dolphins dive their last descent
Into the dark, black stench of gases surging
The whales are breeching
in the rainbow colored sea
that is not its color by nature
the waters are drowning in gallons of oilthat we pierced and now
these are our transgressions…
she is hemorrhaging...
her wounds may not be restored
for a long, long time...
and tonight, my heart is in agony over this death-
over the many deaths of the winged ones, the finned ones…
And those celestial beings…
Who came from pleiades to bring harmony
and peace to the earth
they dove into the sea from the sky
carrying eternal knowledge and ancient wisdom in their dnato awaken in us our divine expression
and now…they gasp at their last breath, they take their final plunge
into the mother that birthed us and who is now dying…
My soul clings to the edge of the moon
As she sinks into her hammock
Hanging between venus and mars
Waiting to become her full expression again

Oh Great Spirit…mysterious one…creator of all things…
Keepers of the west and the thunder beings
Keepers of the north and the elders who hold the knowledge
Keepers of the east where the sun rises and the eagle soars
Keepers of the south…the blood of the mother, the womb of our beginning
I cry out to all the people…the stones, the forests, the winged ones, the four-leggeds and those in the oceans…
To those who have walked before us, and who will walk after us…
To those seen and unseen…
I pray for assistance now…
Teach us to live more simply
to walk softly and to live in a good way…
To the Star nations, Grandfather Sun, Grandmother Moon
I give thanks to you for lighting our way in times of darkness.

Aho...all my relations!
