In the dark of the moon,
In the flying snow, in the dead of winter
War spreading, families dying, the world in danger
I walk the rocky hillside, sowing clover.
- Wendell Berry
With the world in danger from climate change, we walk the rocky hillside of our world in danger fromclimate change sowing the clover of light, hope and action. We gathered at WATERSPIRIT at Stella Maris Retreat Center on December 7th to pray, create, meditate and send, in concert with Mother Earth, positive energy, light and thoughts to the world leaders gathering in Lima, Peru. We hope that this light intention, from faith gatherings around the world, will help enable the world leaders to come to enabling positive decisions and actions for the sake of Mother Earth and her communities of life.
As we know, Earth is at a tipping point. Can our global leaders once and for all, at this crucial time in history, make the tough, difficult decisions to shift societies away from massive extraction and consumption of fossil fuels, to move us towards a transformative renewable energy future with more socially just, equitable ways of living in harmony with nature? We do not have all of the answers to this vision, but we do know that as we move away from our disconnectedness from nature, and we realize humanities interconnectedness with the life systems of the Universe, we will see change and be the change. We see change at local levels, in cities, in communities.
Now we are calling for the global, international leaders to join the change, to see the possibilities. We can make this transition with our divine human spirit and love for life, enabled by the cry and energy of Mother Earth. We as a global community can bring forth this transformation for the sake of all life.
We implore our world leaders to be enabled to enter into a dialogue that welcomes change, that welcomes communion for Earth, that welcomes transformation, that welcomes making the hard choices and decisions for climate change action that will save the ecosystems that sustain all life here on Earth.
