Gratitude for Mother Earth


 

 

 

We are coming to an end of another year. We witnessed a lot of horror, violence and pain this year. We have also had reason to hope, love and show kindness to others. My goal for 2015 is to promote peace and love as much as possible. Will I succeed? I don’t know but I believe that if I and others don’t try, it will make life here in our world worse. So I want to state that we are all one family, one species and we share one World. It is our only one. There isn’t even a second string planet waiting to fill in if we destroy Mother Earth. So let 2015 be the year we save our own lives and begin to heal Mother Earth. May 2015 be the year we practice love, kindness and acceptance.

 

“O Hidden life vibrant in every atom;

O Hidden Light shining in every creature;

O Hidden Love! embracing all in Oneness;

May each who feels himself as one with Thee,

Know he is also one with every other.”

—Annie Besant

 

” Let us be united;

Let us speak in harmony;

Let our minds apprehend alike.

Common be our prayer;

Common be the end of our assembly;

Common be our resolution;

Common be our deliberations.

Alike be our feelings;

Unified be our hearts;

Common be our intentions;

Perfect be our unity.”

—From the Hindu sacred writings of the Rig Veda

 

“Grant me the ability to be alone;

May it be my custom to go outdoors each day

among the trees and grasses,

among all growing things

and there may I be alone,

and enter into prayer

to talk with the one

that I belong to.”

—Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav

 

We need to save our forests, jungles and green spaces. Plants give off Oxygen that we need to breathe.

    A truly beautiful and valued post, Barbara. Hoping all readers take heed of your words, spreading them to all who may listen. Bless you.

    • A couple of years ago, I won a cruise to the Bahamas. I went with my sister as I am a widow. I got to swim with Dolphins and I kissed one. I also got to hold a star fish in my hands as it finished chewing what it had eaten. The experience deeply touched me. So I feel we need to protect these precious treasures. Hugs, Barbara

  5. Beautiful thoughts for the New Year and always. Also, it’s too bad that the people running the governments of the world aren’t in agreement about saving our forests and green spaces.
