This meaningful initiative inspires people to become more aware and reduce general energy consumption in a more widespread way.

Hi there Simon - thanks for writing about this - I've been really slack and have seen mention of it but not investigated. Now I know what it is!

I am in. I put a post up all about this. Thanks for reminding me!

Love and Blessings,

We participated in Earth Hour last night. How peaceful it was, and how great it felt to look over the valley and see only velvety darkness, instead of bright lights of our neighbours, knowing we were all participating together!

Simon

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment everyone. I've seen Earth Hour criticized for being 'a purely symbolic gesture' but of course that's exactly what it was intended to be: not a significant energy-saving exercise in itself but a show of willingness by millions of people to take the necessary action to do what is needed to address the global situation.

I'm glad to hear that it was so well supported in your part of the world, Marion. Glancing out of the window here during the hour, it just looked all lit up the same as normal. I guess you're closer to nature over there in your rugged terrain, so people are more connected to what's going on. I still think that a wholesale change in human consciousness is going to be needed if we're to 'wake up' in time to save ourselves, but that's no excuse for not making a start right now.

Some Favorite Quotes

  • "The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone like us to come along - people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. It is overwhelming to consider the numerous opportunities there are to make our love felt." - Leo Bascaglia
  • "Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." - Sir Winston Churchill
  • "My life has been filled with terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened." - Michel de Montaigne
  • "Take any fear. Call it out. Actually make an appointment: I'll meet you face to face to get this settled once and for all at 'such-n-such' time. Tell it you'll even meet it in its own space: a dark room. And you'll find nothing will ever come to meet you..." - Sue Ann Edwards
  • "Your mind is the interference to experiencing the bliss of this moment." - Dr Joe Vitale
  • "A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive." - Albert Einstein
