Earth Day is everyday. Earth Day is a daily concern during Earth changes…
”We must work together, and take care of our Mother, because She is suffering.” -Anishnabe Elder William Commanda
It’s been growing and building up. Can you feel it? The escalation of natural or man made disasters in recent years has increased in intensity. Mother Earth shows us she still can speak loud, but she doesn’t want to hurt us. She wants our hearts to change, so our behaviors can change.
The major changes are not just being felt through climate change and mass extinction of biodiversity, which are directly caused by human activities, but they are primarily felt and seen at the human level in every aspects of human societies. In fact, no other species have calendars and prophecies, because no other species has gone away from the natural laws. To change the world for better, all we need to do is to change the human beings, their hearts, minds and consciousness.
It’s happening. A few decades ago, environmental concerns belonged to a handful of marginals, but today they have become the core of global interest, as our collective future depends on how we will create it, in a realignment with Nature.
If we Love the world enough, we will unite and stand for its protection and for the future generations. It will take some of us to ask ourselves what we can do to change things for the better. It will take some of us to question the governments, institutions and corporations and their ways to rule the world, and their visions about our collective direction. It will take some of us to demand for justice and transparency, to stand up to protect the sacred lands, to stop the bulldozers and the pipelines, to face the antiriot squads and soldiers and change their hearts to Peace, to disolve the corrupt institutions and put an end to militarism and wars.
We must put our prayers and intentions into action in order to make a change. We are not mere witnesses of our destiny, we are making it unfold, we are not only enduring through history, we are writing it. Rainbow warriors put their faith in deeds, not in words. We will not give up until the Great Earth Peace has come. We are all relations…
“The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity… that’s all there is. That’s the whole economy. That’s where all the economic activity and jobs come from. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world.”
— Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day
