People Power~ Making a Difference

Following up from my last post The Future~ Standing as One with Nature today a success story from Germany over stopping some open cast mining for fossil fuels.. All be it will be temporary.

 While I admire Germany for a program for phasing out its nuclear plants after the Fukushima nuclear disaster by 2022. Germany has a good record for renewable energy and is investing more in solar and wind .  But during this transition they are continuing cutting great swathes of land in open mining for fossil fuels using Brown Coal the dirtiest form of fossil fuel,.. More can be found here about how Brown coal wins a reprieve in Germany’s transition to a green future

In the mean time well done to this group of people who led the way in showing some People Power in Action saying enough is enough..  

In my Email box this morning came this Newsletter

Dear friends,

Today over 1,500 people woke up with reflections of a momentous and emotional weekend. On Saturday over a thousand people — with the support of hundreds more — entered the Garweiler open-pit coal mine in Germany and stopped the work of the world’s biggest diggers in their tracks.

You can watch the success here.

It wasn’t an easy task, but we can be proud of the courage of activists, organisers and support structures that made this happen. The swell of solidarity that came in from around the world showed us that we are not in this fight alone and meant a lot to the people who participated.

Over the coming weeks there will be more reflections, photos and stories coming in, and we hope we can count on you to share the story so the world knows what our movement is building.

We said “Ende Gelände – Here and No Further!” and we succeeded.

Thanks so much for your support – it means a lot to many people,

Emma on behalf 350.org

 I hope you will feel free to share.

Love and Blessings

~Sue~

Connecting Back to our Earth Mother

Spending time in nature allows us to feel at one with other living beings and to find comfort in the nurturing embrace of our Earth Mother. You can’t help but experience a different sense of self while walking in a wood.

So many of us have waited for Spring, as we have endured either the wettest or coldest winter in a long time.. So when at last the Sun peeps out I am one of the first to head for my favourite walks among the trees.. Just having the Sun revitalise us and enrich our Vitamin D supplies needed for healthy bones makes us feel so much better..

My walk looking out over some of Robin Hood Country

My walk looking out over some of Robin Hood Country. I am standing upon a converted ‘Slag heap’ of waste from a local Coal mine which closed in 2003. This land has now been made into a Nature Reserve.

We spend so much time indoors, focused on the busyness of our lives and disconnected from the earth. But much of what we truly need can only be found  in nature alongside trees or by the sound of running water.  There is so much to be seen.. And it was really good to hear the birds in the tree tops chirping away as they too must have been ready to dry out their feathers.. I saw many busy collecting nesting materials as they began to rebuild their nests..

Being in nature connects us to the earth, grounding us as we walk, unhindered by concrete, upon her. Surrounded by other living beings, both bigger and smaller than we are, we remember that human beings are simply one form of life in this vast universe. The standing ones are now starting to sprout new growth from their long sleep as they wake up revealing their blossoms..

Even if you live in a city or find it difficult to travel to a forest or the countryside, there are many ways to reconnect with nature. When you step out of your door each morning, just pause for a minute and close your eyes long enough to let your senses absorb your surroundings. Listen and breathe deeply, until you hear the wind rustling through branches, smell rain on damp grass, see the sparkle of morning dew, or frost. Enjoy the magical Mist. Take in the sights, sounds, and sensations we experience that are part of nature, which can remind us of all the gifts our Earth Mother brings us each day.

Spending time connecting with nature nourishes the soul, reminding us that you we are never truly alone, and renews us by attuning us back to the earth’s natural rhythm of which all nature is a part.. 

Enjoy Spring!

As we remember we are One with All of Nature

Blessings ~Sue

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
