“Every Year ROTH brings their training methods and clinics to Zuma’s, paying a facility fee and assisting with the training of horses. These clinics and the funding they generate help to offset the cost of the healing herd here at Zuma’s, as well as assist in getting some of the herd trained.”
         To Jodi and the Zuma’s Staff, we return the gratitude as you always provide us a magnificent facility and wonderful horses with whom to practice and share the methods.  We certainly appreciate all you do for the horses.  A very sincere and heart felt thank you right back at you guys!

You wanted President Obama’s help saving the mustangs? Well here’s your chance…

Let’s sign this petition on whitehouse.gov and maybe we can finally get the administration to see the importance of protecting our wild horses over securing corporate profits at the expense of the mustangs and burros. We only need 5000 signatures to be heard. But imagine if we had 10,000 or 100,000! Let’s make it happen!

TURTLE TALK with KATE SOLISTI

====================

Sea Turtle Wisdom, The Oil Disaster & A Call to Action!

On May 12th, we had a profound, touching teaching from the Wild Ones. When I asked who wished to deliver a message, the great Sea Turtle identified him/herself and began describing what is happening in the Gulf and how the sea creatures and the Earth view this man-made disaster. The animals see their tremendous sacrifice as an effort to help humanity wake up and realize the risks we take by extracting oil and minerals from the earth. The Sea Turtle and Mother Earth continue to tell us that it is up to us to embrace life as inclusive, interconnected and, to understand, as Chief Seattle said,“What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves.”

Sending love and gratitude for the sacrifice is lovely and appreciated, AND, I suggest that we turn our grief and outrage into action. After all, humans seem better at doing as opposed to being, so let’s put that talent to use!

1) Perhaps the most powerful way to change the status quo and send a message to the human powers-that-be is to use our money to express our commitment to the earth. 70% of our economy is driven by consumer spending! Goldman Sachs has run the Treasury Department since Ronald Reagan was president. The quickest way to change things is to speak with our money!

Respect, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and BUY from local merchants. Buy organic fruits & veggies, pastured eggs and meat. Only support companies who take care of their employees and have strong environmental ethics. Support people who give back and make positive contributions to all living beings — healers, teachers, helpers in every area of life, artists & musicians making the world more beautiful, people in service to human-kind, animals, Nature, and the Earth. Each of us can be part of a consumer revolution for the earth.  But, we must start today!

2) Support cottage industries around the world, especially products made by women & girls! (It is now clear that when women receive financial support and education, the village prospers, birth rates & fundamentalism drop and everyone benefits.) Beautiful wollens, textiles,  jewelery, baskets, pottery, sustainable wood & paper products are all available crafted by village artisans. Be sure that your $$ is getting to the artists and not to “middle-men”.

3) Support village and rural women with micro loans and other financial resources. There are many organizations helping women in the poorest nations create livings and support their families and communities.  For example, check out Friends of Gueoul,  started by Judy Beggs of Denver, www.gueoul.org and make a huge difference right now in the life of a girl in Senegal.  Check out Heifer International and other organizations that, with your donation,  make a direct impact on a family’s life.

4) Do you own stock in an oil company or insurance company? If so, YOU “own” these corporations and are responsible for changing them! It’s time that you, together with other shareholders, demand changes and reforms. Or, sell your stock in these corporations and invest in socially and environmentally responsible/green companies. Check out The Calvert Fund as a resource.

5) Get involved in protecting the environment. Sign Save Our Environment’s petition to President Obama to stop ALL off shore drilling NOW. http://www.ga3.org/campaign/end_drilling . Support The Ocean ConservancyFriends of the Earth and other global environmental organizations that are doing everything they can to keep us from destroying our planet. www.oceanconservancy.org .  www.foe.org

Volunteer your time (and/or $) to a local non-profit such as the FL Wild Mammal Assn in Crawfordville, FL. This small, mostly volunteer wildlife rehab hospital, is gearing up to try to save pelican babies who are hatching amidst the encroaching oil. They need your help NOW!http://www.wakullawildlife.org/index.html

6) Take political action. Contact your state & federal  senators & congresspeople and tell them what you expect them to do. Think community here. Is your agenda really life-supporting for ALL beings, or just for a select few? Look deeply at this next question.  Are you making political decisions based on fear or love? Remember inclusivity and our interconnectedness. Is opposing universal health care, Wall Street/Banking reform, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” inclusive or exclusive? The more you act and vote out of the place of exclusivity, the more you help maintain the status quo and continued abuse of the planet and all earthlings.

In my opinion, focusing on reducing govt spending as THE issue is barking up the wrong tree. Let’s be realistic. The amount of debt the US is in will never be repaid. Instead of complaining about outrageous spending, we need to make a fundamental shift in how the world economy “functions.” No more business as usual. Instead let’s start a consumer revolution based on all of the above. Let’s each of us use the power of money for good each & every day, starting now. There is no more time to waste. Do not let the countless plants, invertebrates, fish, shrimp, shell-fish,  sea & fresh water birds, reptiles, turtles, dolphins, manatees, whales… die in vain.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

And finally, in the words of Anthropologist Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
