I am one …

… with the earth. She is my larger body. I am an organ in her system: one self-organised, semi-autonomous entity, one part of a whole which in its own turn is a part of a bigger whole. We depend on each other. I wouldn’t exist without the earth; the earth wouldn’t exist without me. Hurting the earth, i hurt myself.

Everyday I touch the earth in gratitude, take a few breaths, look at the sky in gratitude, I smile, taking a few breaths. Here i am, the next step that I take is one step further towards peace; everystep that I consciously take is guiding my whole being one step closer to being one with the earth; every step that I mindfully take is taking every being one step closer to being one with the earth and the universe.
