GREAT LIFE GLOBAL APRIL 2021 NEWSLETTER

Celebrating Earth Day April 22

Spring is a gift. It arrives with warmth, color, and fragrance. Yet, this beauty is difficult to enjoy when we realize that the planet is experiencing pollution of Air, Water, and Soil, Plastic Toxicity, Species Extinction, Global Warming, and Climate Change. 

In this issue honoring our Planet and celebrating Earth Day, we bring you heroes of ecology who research, write, inspire, lecture, teach, and shout for us all to join together to save the Earth. Be inspired by Paul McCartney’s music, Rachel Carson’s words, Greta Thunberg’s youthful passion, and Dame Judi Dench’s BBC Documentary on Trees.

Meet longtime macrobiotic educators, Bill Tara and Marlene Watson-Tara, who share their passionate work for the delicate and damaged environment. 

Each hero teaches what WE can do to be loving to Mother Earth.

THE EARTH IS OUR MOTHER:
NATIVE AMERICAN TEACHINGS

Teach your children 
what we have taught our children-
that the earth is our mother. 
whatever befalls the earth
befalls the sons and daughters of the earth.

The earth does not belong to us;
we belong to the earth.
All things are connected
like the blood which unites one family.
All things are connected.

Whatever befalls the earth
befalls the sons and daughters of the earth.
We did no weave the web of life;
We are merely a strand in it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

Chief Seattle

 

RACHEL CARSON

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.

― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

One of America’s greatest ecological heroes is Rachel Carson. A marine biologist and conservationist, Carson wrote the first book on the dangerous effects of pesticides and chemicals and how they harm animals, insects, and plants as well as their link to cancer an other diseases of the human body and mind. She had asked countless concerned scientists to write a book. Each refused because doing so would threaten his or her job. So, she wrote Silent Spring, referred to as “a handbook for the future of all life on earth.” It is a highly researched, well documented, and inspiring book that has influenced millions of people. 

After publication, Carson received death threats and law suits by chemical companies. Because her book was so well researched, supported, and footnoted, her publisher felt entirely confident to proceed with its distribution and publicity. Silent Spring, entitled for the profound reduction of the US bird population, was and remains widely read and appreciated, not only by scientists, but by US presidents and the general public. Carson’s tireless work led to a US Government policy banning the use of DDT and certain other pesticides. 

Rachel Carson’s work, influenced by her scientific knowledge, research, dedication to the oceans, animals, and humankind makes her a true hero to whom we are forever grateful. May our Springs always have the songs of birds and insects as people begin to utilize natural pest control and landscaping, organic gardening, and sustainable crops. Carson has received innumerable awards and honors for her work, which can be studied on internet sites including https://rachelcarson.org

MACROBIOTICS FOR ECOLOGY OF OUR BODY | OUR MIND | OUR EARTH

GRETA THUNBERG
of Sweden

The fifteen-year-old student who sailed across the Atlantic to save fuel, became Time magazine’s youngest ever Person of the Year, inspires a whole generation of young people to be activists for the environment, and spoke to the United Nations with these words:  

“People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”  

The world’s damaged eco systems, climate change, human rights, and pollution are keystones of her passionate work. Organizing student protests, she has been joined by a growing number of international participants. Some major world leaders have criticize her harshly, while others praise her. Greta and her family, whom she inspired to go carbon neutral, wrote the book, Scenes from the Heart and recently she published the book, No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference.

Greta has won numerous awards, including nominations for the Nobel Prize, winning Amnesty International’s top Human Rights Award, and Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Women. This young, courageous activist refuses many awards, saying that the climate does not need awards. At other times she has used award money to sue a country for their environmental policies.

THE HUMAN ECOLOGY PROJECT ~ MACROVegan

Bill Tara and Marlene Watson-Tara

William “Bill” Tara has been a highly respected international macrobiotic teacher for over fifty years. Lino and I had the pleasure of working and studying with Bill at the Kushi Institute in Boston, where he was Co-Founder and Director of Natural Medicine and also in the Macrobiotic Foundation of Florida. Bill’s teaching and writing have a distinctive combination of knowledge, intellect, and humor valued by his countless students from the USA, from over twenty-five countries, and at the award-winning SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain. Bill has written the following breakthrough books: Your Face Never Lies, Macrobiotics and Human Behavior, Eating as If All Life Matters; Natural Body, Natural Mind:Health; Ecology, and the Human Spirit, and How to Eat Right to Save the Planet.

Bill’s life is now powerfully intertwined with his vibrant, articulate, and beautiful wife, Marlene Watson-Tara, a popular natural wellness teacher and author from Scotland. The two have written several inspiring books, videos, and educational projects at their Human Ecology Project. Read about their counseling and life-changing MACROVegan workshops that transform individuals and families…thus their communities and ultimately the planet. It is the salvation of the planet, as well as humane treatment of animals, that have become the deepest passion for Bill and Marlene, reflecting simple and profound compassion for all of life.

Famed T. Colin Campbell writes in the forward to Marlene’s book Go Vegan: “Marlene Watson-Tara has been an unusually dedicated woman in the cause of furthering human welfare through eating food that matters. Her tradition, and that of her husband Bill, is drawn from their long-time association with the famous macrobiotic diet concept introduced in the West by Michio and Aveline Kushi during the 1950s.” – T. Colin Campbell, Author - The China Study

This amazing team of Bill and Marlene is a force of Nature. They now offer a radio show in Britain, weekly meal service, corporate training and are producing new educational materials, including "Let’s Keep Fish in the Sea." Contact Bill and Marlene with your much valued support and watch their magnificently illustrated and documented videos on Human Ecology, as well as Covid.

Albert Einstein said, “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

A billion years from now, a lack of oxygen will wipe out life on EarthWE ARE THE EARTH
Jane and Lino

We are of the Earth. 
Our environment breathes within our lungs, they are trees within our bodies. 

Our lungs even look like trees! 
Our blood flows in strong wide rivers and minute capillary streams to every cell of our body. 
Our bones are the mineral-rich stones.
Our energy is the same vibration that flows through the soil, air, grass, plants, mountains, and oceans of the world. 
Our health depends on that of our Earth. 
Our daily choices either help or hinder our Earth. 
One person, no matter the age, gender, or financial status, can take actions that are powerfully ecological. 
We each can care for the Earth in profound and profoundly simple ways. 

Join us in doing it!
Jane and Lino Stanchich
