Today is Earth Day. This is a sad day for me as I see the arrogance and controlling nature of human kind destroying our planet at an alarming rate. Even in our quiet little wooded lakeside community we live with people who want the trees cut down and the wildlife killed or relocated.
As much as people want to believe they depend on no one, we have to remember the earth is our mother. We do depend on her — for our very lives. She provides the air we breathe, the water we drink, the ground that supports us, the food we eat — everything necessary for survival is available from our mother, the earth. As we continue to poison the air, water and ground how long can we expect her to support us?
We were put on this earth to tend the garden. To care for and nurture the earth and the creatures living on it. The earth is not ours to exploit until there is nothing of any value left. As we destroy the earth we are destroying ourselves.
This is the time to keep up on important environmental issues and take action as needed. Some may be able to work on the “front lines” to save and protect our earth and her wildlife. Those of us who cannot do that can still help by writing letters, signing petitions and being aware of how our everyday actions effect the earth.
Finally, we can all pray. The prayer of one person raises the energetic vibration of the earth, but when we all join together it is multiplied over and over. I have been involved in international, inter-faith prayer efforts and the power of such prayers is so strong, at times it can seem overwhelming.
So this Earth Day, start taking your responsibility for caring for the earth seriously. Show Mother Earth a little love. We can stop this…
