The world has fed us,
And now it is our turn to feed,
It’s given us the rich soil, from which our bodies and souls grow deeply.
The Mother Earth’s message is a great thunderous roar to humanity
Saying through the signs of disaster and tragedy,
Wake up loved ones, all our selfishness must die.
All of your eyes must see, from the eyes of your hearts.
We are the home of it all
The Earth’s land is our skin
Its rivers, our blood
Its fire, our love
Its winds, our united breath
How do we awaken to feel each plate of grass fold over as we walk by?
To hear the sound of each crashing wave and remember”HOME!”
We caught ourselves in folly and illusion to our roots, and now we dig to find the
Treasure in the depth
To lead us through the darkness to the light…we become the change in which we wish
To see, the rest is simply contagious!
All we have from our moment of birth and death is the moments of God awareness.
So then, spread the Message!
Each breath we take can be a breath of forgiveness and hope, of intention and ablution
To the powers around.
Our sensitivity must grow to feel the world bleeding from underneath our feet.
When the world bleeds, our hearts bleed, our harmony with the Earth is our only hope.
We should stop to bow, bow down to the deepest ocean floors.
Giving thanks and respect to what has created us.
The Mother Earth has carried all of us, and now it is time for us to take responsibility.

Sketch of Sufi meditating
Creating community and commitment to daily spiritual practice. Each day that our actions benefit our communities, compassion, love, acceptance, are steps along the path of forgiveness to the establishment of peace in every country around the world. Peace is always our destination. Mother Earth has fed and taken care of us for the Milleniums. She is still trying but it is as if we were at war with her. We need to take care of her and treasure what she has given us to help us on our journey. We can’t ignore her because if we do Mother Earth will die and we will be dying too.
