Earth song

Today I was going to write a post on the chakras (which according to the East they are energy channels in our bodies). However with the death of Michael Jackson, I remembered one of his best songs ever that speaks loudly and clearly of our destruction of the earth. Earth song was released in 2006 and its video invoked emotions of sadness, anger and hope. I always cry when I see the video because the ache of the earth is palpable. You can feel every shot, every felled tree...the pain of our planet who's been trying to tell us in so many ways but we ignored and still do a lot really because although we want to help it, we don't want to give up our comfortable living. Our easy ways can't be compromised.....yet, the destruction gets worse every year and WE are the sole perpetrators. Don't you feel any guilt? when you go in a forest, by a lake, mountain or river don't you feel the calmness and happiness. Have you seen lions in the wild and felt that rush of excitement seeing them there in their habitat FREE! Don't you go to the zoo and see the sadness in the animals' eyes?

I got to know this song wasn't released as a single in the US and the video hardly shown on the music channels. That is a great shame for one of the best songs in favour of our earth. I hope that whoever visits my blog gets to see this video and pass it on to everyone else and I sincerely hope that more will take act of their actions.....

I can't for the life of me understand why they don't release that in the US. We are the largest contributor to the damage on the planet! I also have to admit I am a HUGE Michael Jackson fan, of his music, not always him and his "eccentric" ways.

I hope you come out of your rut and you get to stay home soon. I would change places with you in a heartbeat! Take care my friend! Lots of love to you Melissa.
