What's new?

Crab in hole at Maracas Bay

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.

A man named Finite awoke and found himself in a sinkhole full of quick sand. He was sinking very slowly and knew that he would meet certain death.

A man came along who had holes in his hands. The man threw Finite a rope and told him to grab it and he would pull him to safety.

Finite looked at the holes in the man’s hands and said, “Your not real.” “It is not scientifically possible for a man to live who has holes in his hands.

The man with the holes in his hands looked at the guy a little puzzled and said, “You are in a sinkhole and about to die. Your response to my help is to say I’m not real?”

Finite said, “Well, I like how warm the sand is and I really don’t want to get out. Second, I know I am having an illusion because it is not possible for a man to have holes in his hands and still help me out.” Therefore, morally I like my plight and scientifically, you don’t exist being a mere projection of my mind.

The man with the holes in his hands said, “Listen, I was sent here by my father to help people out so please let me help you! I will take you to my father’s mansion where you can enjoy life for eternity. Obviously, death was not able to hold me in the grave because the holes in my hands are proof that I overcame death. I now have the power to save you so grab the rope!”

Finite put his fingers in the ears and said, “Now I know I am hearing things because there is no such thing as eternal life…Everyone dies so I am going to take my turn and just enjoy this warm sand until the end.”

The man with the holes in his hand said, “If you won’t grab the rope, then I won’t be able to help you…please, please take the rope and I can pull you out. Have faith my friend.”

A few moments later Finite sunk into the quick sand and out of sight. Finite was surprised that he did not die as expected. He just sat there surrounded by sand, unable to move, unable to breathe, unable to talk with his fingers in his ears. Finite tried to comfort himself by thinking, “I would rather stay here for eternity than believe that the man with the holes in His hand could help me. Faith in that mirage is irrational!!

So Finite sat in the quicksand for eternity. Day in and day out for eternity Finite was always thinking about the man with the holes in his hands. He would comfort himself thinking, “It was better to not have faith than to believe something that didn’t make sense.”

The man with the holes in His hands continued to call him for the rest of eternity; however, Finite could not hear his voice because he had plugged his ears.

The Lesson

If you are not with Jesus, you will be thinking about Him for eternity anyway… so have faith.
