Earth Day 🌳🌼🌴🌸🌵🌻 every day!!!

   The 22 of April  has been nominated as Earth Day. To me, however,  each and every day should be Earth Day, so I’m celebrating it continually!  That’s why I’m posting this  now, although the 22nd has gone away… (oh, yes! I haven’t been totally lost in time yet!  😁)

   It is very easy for us humans to “pay our compliments” to Pachamama* continually:

18

 🔅 use eco-friendly power solutions

 🔅clean with eco-friendly detergents

🔅use non-toxic-to-the-environment chemicals

 🔅avoid spraying our food (fruit and vegetables)

ReThink-story 🔅reduce plastic packaging

 🔅avoid littering

 🔅recycle

 🔅plant trees in our neighbourhoods/towns/cities

 🔅 protect fauna and flora…

and so on…

 Here are 16 “natural wonders”, 16 must-sees (like Petra in Jordan, Ta Prohm Kel in Cambodia, Proxy falls in Oregon, etc) to  glorify😊 Pachamama once again:

*  “Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. She is also known as the earth/time mother. In Inca mythology, Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting. She causes earthquakes and is typically in the form of a dragon. She is also an ever present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth.

   Pachamama is the wife of Pacha Kamaq and her children are Inti, the sun god, and Killa, the moon goddess. In Quechua cosmology, these are the four organizing principles of nature based on water, earth, sun, and moon.Llamas as well as burned, elaborate miniature garments are sacrificed to her.

   After the conquest by Spain, which forced conversion to Roman Catholicism, the figure of the Virgin Mary became united with that of the Pachamama for many of the indigenous people.

   In pre-Hispanic literature, Pachamama is seen as a cruel goddess eager to collect her sacrifices. As Peru began to form into a nation, however, Pachamama began to be –and to this day is– perceived as being benevolent and giving. She is also seen as nature itself. Thus, many who hold traditional beliefs in South America believe that problems arise when people take too much from nature because they are taking too much from Pachamama…”

   Consequently,

Have we taken, and keep on taking, too much from Pachamama😞???

Is it the reason environmental problems have arisen😞???

   Personally, I could never perceive Pachamama as “benevolent” and revenging. It is us that we should reconsider our manners and our overall behaviour towards her 😉 😉 😉…

  2. “Fourteen pictures of extraordinary trees.” No such thing as an extraordinary tree. They are all extraordinary. Being extraordinary is just ordinary for a tree – all of them. They are awesome things.
