Positive Thinking Day!

“Few of us know that our home town [Saskatoon, SK] launched the career of one of the greatest pioneers in the movement for global conservation.”~ Paul Hanley Oct 10 1989 Saskatoon Star Phoenix

By some estimates, organizations Richard St. Barbe Baker founded or assisted have been responsible for planting over 26 trillion trees around the world! He saw these trees seeded personally according to his biography when inducted into the Environmental Hall of Fame 1983!  This is a true testament to the power of Positive Thinking!

“The Ecstasy of Love is born of giving for regiving, in knowing our oneness in each other, in seeing all men as God’s creation; in knowing every living thing as part of us in Creation; the Ecstasy of Love is feeling the pulse-beat of the universe in a flower, a tree, and all we call Nature, and knowing that all things animate or inanimate are the imaginings of God.” ~ Richard St. Barbe Baker  in Caravan Story and Country Notebook.

Can you join in Richard St. Barbe Baker’s dream, and plant a tree (for free), yourself?

Richard St. Barbe Baker: Evangelist, missionary, writer, raconteur, entrepreneur, generous, visionary, single minded, boundless energy, member of the Bahai’ faith, excellent networker, inspirational, abstemious, excellent recall, Vegan.”~Geoff Poulton author of the occasional paper Richard St. Barbe Baker Eastleigh and District Local History Society

Stand firm, hold fast, Reach upward to the skies, Bend to the winds of Heaven, And learn tranquility.~Richard St. Barbe Baker tree planting song

“If we continue tearing away the earth’s green cloak at the rate that we have we soon won’t have enough trees to provide the oxygen we need to survive, and life will disappear from the planet.  All that’s required is some intelligent stewardship.  It’s a world wide responsibility.” Richard St. Barbe Baker; For Every Child A Tree: Richard St. Barbe Baker Foundation.

“Has any one of us ever really seen a Tree? When we become aware of trees we may catch glimpses of them in moments of spiritual vision and, identifying ourselves with the trees, become conscious of the rising of the sap; the upward thrust of life; leaf burgeoning, their consciousness of the changing seasons; we may share their passionately boisterous exuberance of life in the height of a storm, and their tranquility when at rest; with them we will enjoy the glad murmur of the ripening seed clusters when after weeks of drought the steady warm rain brings relief to thirst; and we will know that these creatures, our elder brethern, are intimately related to us in their love and hunger for life. We may even catch their enthusiasm and aspire heavenwards while still rooted in our Mother Earth and in communion with our fellow men and, tree-wise, strive to make the Earth more fruitful again.” ~Richard St. Barbe Baker

 

 

What was Richard St. Barbe Baker’s mission, that he imparted to the Watu Wa Miti, the very first forest scouts or forest guides?  To protect the native forest, plant ten native trees each year, and take care of trees everywhere.
