Greetings Dear Members,
Even though Greenlight Network has not been as visible as usual (like a crab in a hole) ... we have been very present. You will be happy to know that we have continued working behind the scenes, putting various things in place to enable the strengthening of our organisation and the refinement of the services we offer to our country and the world - in the name of healing our inner and outer environments.
Those who know the philosophy behind Power Animals will understand that the living creatures around us are highly symbolic. The crab (which as you will have figured out by now is our visual symbol for this particular blog post) brings a most fitting message for Greenlight Network.
(Extracted from this source):
The crab uses all of its senses to survive. Its body movements as well as its excellent sight, smell, taste and hearing assist it in reaching its desired destination. They are skillful in everything that they do. Crabs teach us how to empower ourselves on all levels, perfecting, refining, awakening and expanding our own perceptions.
... The crab shows you how to develop and refine all aspects of yourself. It only requires that you open your heart to its wisdom and be willing to follow its instructions. In so doing, personal power is your for the asking.
Below are some examples of how have we been empowering ourselves (and others) on all levels, perfecting, refining, awakening and expanding over the past few months:
LAST QUARTER 2008: Funds raised at our successful annual fundraising concert - Green Carpet - were donated to WORC (Wildlife Orphanage and Rehabilitation Centre). This donation enabled continued work in the area of local wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
MAY 2009: Greenlight Network organised a Beach Cleanup for the Red Earth Festival 2009, successfully collecting plastics and other waste from the Chaguaramas area. Collected plastics are carried to Recycling in Motion in Aranguez, to be crushed and/or chipped for export (recycling).
HEALTH CARE NOW 2009: Greenlight Network has been dedicated to bringing free health care to various communities throughout the country - offering testing of cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and medical advice. So far thrilled residents of Arima, Aranguez, Curepe, Bamboo Village and Debe have benefited from this service.
ONGOING 2009: Our much needed Plastikeep project (which focuses on recycling of plastics) goes from strength to strength. We have been working diligently on our application process to secure the necessary funding (the Green Fund) to enable the manifestation of our plans. More on this exciting venture will be shared with you shortly!
Stay tuned ... and feel free to make use of the comments section of our blog. Ask questions, make suggestions, let us know what you and yours have been doing to help and heal the world in and around you.
