These mountains, so mighty and grand, have often taught me how the world doesn’t revolve around humans, as many of us might assume. They teach us humility.
In fact, we are alive only for a few years and then would turn into ash and dust. And yet, we try to control everything. We try to gain power over everything.
Funnily, many humans end up believing this illusion. They let themselves feel superior than everything--even nature. But remember, we are a part of the nature itself. We cannot escape the cycle of nature. Just like a tree, we take birth, grow old, and then wither away.
Our fear and greed have turned us into murderers. We are so scared to lose that the only solution our tiny brains can think of is to be at the top. And even after being at the top, we are scared of falling down that throne. So, it leads to more greed and fear.
This illusion has to be shattered. This world is not a race. No matter what you gain here - humans or possessions - everything has to be given up once we die. The biggest of kingdoms have shattered, the strongest of emperors are dead.
So, I often look at these mountains and smile in awe. I submit myself to the nature. When we don’t fight against it, the world works along with us.
The burning shine.
We, humans, in a quest of achievements and innovations forgot who belonged. We forgot that the Earth does not belong to us: we belong to Earth. We saw that one shine, not realizing the millions that died because of it. We kept racing leaving behind the nature and its gifts.
Every year people around the globe commit to turning off the lights for one hour. It's our gentle gesture to give the rightful to the nature. But why just an hour, and not being committed to contribute continually.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
Earth hour is today, 24th March at 8:30 p.m. (local time) in whatever area of the planet you live.
So today let's turn off the light to shine a light on the need for climate action.
