Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970 and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year. While the first Earth Day was focused entirely on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes—the original national coordinator in 1970—took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations. Earth Day is now observed each year on April 22 in virtually every country on Earth. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network . World Environment Day, celebrated on June 5 in a different nation every year, is the principal United Nations environmental observance.
Skillet – One Day Too Late
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Possibilities Emerge …
Possibilities emerge when we earnestly search for what is hindering our destiny to flow naturally.
There are times when it seems that we are going round and round in circles about the same situation and our horizon shows no perspective whatsoever.
Many times, we fail to perceive that we have become wearied of some situations and it is time for us to open up to new things.
We have a habit of creating standards and routines hindering new possibilities to appear… because standards and routines imprison us in an endless repetition of the same things.
There are countless things chaining us to the past, never allowing the present to happen, things that manifest themselves as soon as we open the door.
We are imprisoned by pain and fear… when they prevent us from even getting close to setting them free and achieve what is beyond.
We tie ourselves to what was good… but now it is in the past… this also keeps us from allowing new things to enter our lives…
Actually, if we would remember that we are only present when we are whole at those moments, then we would allow life to flow without tying ourselves to the concepts of “good” and “bad”…
Many times we are imprisoned even in the Light… to some special experience, from this or other lives that gratified, and that we keep trying to repeat now, without remembering that the Light is available when we are in the present time accessing all the possibilities as we sink into creative emptiness.
Trying to live the situations you had in the past, for the best that they may have been… only keeps us from other possibilities that can reveal even more precious experiences than those we have in our memory.
Haven’t you noticed how we repeat our daily routines and almost never remember that the day can be filled with different things… different experiences… different ways to practice things…
So many people say they want new things in their lives…but only accept what comes in old colors… because it gives an illusion of safety.
To really access what the Universe has for us… we must be willing to give up many things… and that may happen in a much gentler way than we think it could, when our choices are made in the present.
Be the Light… Be the shadow… let go … if this is holding you in some way, and open yourself to the countless possibilities that are present in the moments in which when we are whole… here and now
Then… a magic field opens up with ever more… and more… to be explored, leading us to discover that the Universe is unlimited in possibilities…
