TODAY IS THE ONLY POINT FROM WHICH WE HAVE THE POWER TO ACT

We stand here as Voices 4 Mother Earth, who have gathered from all directions parallel to the COP21 in Paris.

In the last week we have experienced and acknowledged that WE ARE ALL ONE.

We are all indigenous to this planet. Earth is sacred; she gives us everything. All we have to do is remember, and unify in action.

We have recommitted our love for Mother Earth to re-establish balance for all life.

These are the sparks of motivation that guide us.

In order to create balance, we must first create it within and between ourselves. We are clear that to heal our relationship to our Mother Earth is to heal our relationship to the Feminine.

By creating global balance, the children, the poor, the animals, and all of nature will thrive.

We weave our shared knowledge into practice, through our communities and lives, and through technology and open source environments.

We, the youth, are the seventh generation after the start of the Industrial Age.

In consideration of the next seven generations, we are taking unified action now to assure that they have a world they can live in.

Today is the only point from which we have the power to act.  We are taking the lead. Please give us a hand.

By joining intentions from all directions, it is already done.

THEY TOOK IT UPON THEM TO HEAL THE FOREST

While the rest of the world is busy on a count down of extinct species, these people took it upon them to heal the forest and all its beings back to their natural state. With dedication and reverence, over the last thirty years!

Suprabha Seshan is ecologist and educator who lives and works at the Gurukula Botanical Sanctuary (GBS), a forest garden in the Western Ghat mountains of Kerala, India, dedicated to the preservation of plant species, restoration ecology and environmental education. But apart from the credentials, something else is going on here. We are seeing a community of people at work who are truly an integral part of ‘Nature’, embrace her ‘Spirit’ and understand her ‘Rhythms’. 

It makes me think: We are a long way from ‘Home’.
