Guide to Awakening Your Inner Self – Begin Your Creative Journey Today

WPC – Earth (2)

6 Comments

On this day, between the global Earth Day celebration, and Mother’s Day in the United States, share your vision of our glorious Mother Earth.

We live in a world divided. Some people don’t respect Mother Earth and work to control her for their own profit. Others know and are grateful for the life-sustaining gifts that Mother Earth provides – oxygen to breath, water to drink, soil to grow food. Luckily many are awakening and speaking out to protect her.

It saddened my heart to see these trees felled in Saratoga National Historical Park last month. Not sure why they were felled but as you can see they weren’t dead trees. This is common in my area lately and my heart cries for the trees. I’m praying that the madness will end soon. My co-worker has purchased trees and is going to share some with me so my granddaughter and I can plant them wherever we find a home for them.

 

“Wherever forests have not been mowed down, wherever the animal is recessed in their quiet protection, wherever the earth is not bereft of four-footed life – that to the white man is an ‘unbroken wilderness.’But for us there was no wilderness, nature was not dangerous but hospitable, not forbidding but friendly. Our faith sought the harmony of man with his surroundings; the other sought the dominance of surroundings.

For us, the world was full of beauty; for the other, it was a place to be endured until he went to another world.

But we were wise. We knew that man’s heart, away from nature, becomes hard.”
~ Chief Luther Standing Bear ~

Luckily there are many places where trees and Mother Earth are still given the respect they deserve.

These are the places I return to regularly to strengthen my soul and spirit, to heal and listen to Mother Earth’s music and witness her beauty in all seasons.

Do you have a special place in nature that can revitalize your soul and uplift your spirit?

Mother Earth will win in the end. There is no money or greed that can out live her.
