Healing Time on Earth

John Denver performed a song called “Healing Time on Earth” at the Windstar Symposium in 1995.  He never recorded it, and struggled for five years to write it, though he wanted desperately to in order to honor his friend, the prominent environmentalist, David Brower. David had written an inspiring book entitled, Let the Mountains Speak, Let the Rivers Run

Both John and David are no longer with us, but in this only performance of his original song ever, John overcame his concern of not being enough to be in the moment and let the inspiration flow. His deeply moving performance is a testament to trusting our genius which is one and the same with  the genius infused throughout all of nature.  
This video is now  - 21 years later -  going viral on social media.  Could it be he could not bring himself to record and release the song widely then because something told him it was not yet healing time on earth?  And are others finding and sharing it now because now it is HEALING TIME ON EARTH?  
You decide.
