Over the past five years, I’ve come to appreciate the beauty of nature and how it is sacred to cultures all around the world. Speaking with many people of many cultures, when asked “What brings you closer to god?” the overwhelming answer was nature and mother Earth.
People I’ve met on my path seem to have cultivated a deep understanding that there is a divinity in keeping our environment pristine, teaching others of the spiritual imperative and urging caution of our collective action as a species.
To highlight the role and importance of our environment to the vitality of life on this planet, today, April 22nd marks ‘Earth Day’ – the 46th year of the movement that gives voice to the collective emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues.
There are public events around the world marking the occasion this weekend.
You can check out the official homepage to find events in your area.
For those of you who are also in New York, there is a Nature Takeover in Times Square. More info here.
