We are all interconnected in the giant web called life, we are not just observers of nature, we are part of nature... so in effect, by trying to save planet Earth, our home, and other species who live on it, we are really saving ourselves too.I saw this Saturday morning and had to send it out... This will be my "Sunday" Meditation for the week.... the challenge is to turn off, dim down to only the necessary lights between 8:30 - 9:30 Saturday night, March 28.... go green and enjoy one hour of quiet time with candles and your art journal or whatever doesn't really require high powered energy on the grid. And if you read this too late, then pick another time and try it! What could be better than a soft candlelight, a glass of wine or cup of tea and your art journal?
From the Earth Hour website (click on it to read more):
"With the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote, Vote Earth is a global call to action for every individual, every business and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF [World Wildlife Fund] are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard."
