EARTH DAY 2020
Updated: May 21, 2021
There is a sacred simplicity in the Truth that we are being, rebirthed and renewed by Mother GAIA. In these times of unprecedented change, the human experience is being woven back into the fabric of Mother Earth.
What happens when as a species we no longer seek dominion over the wild terrains of Mother Earth? What is revealed when we gain a new found humility, and a visceral understanding that we are simply part of Her ever-evolving ecosystem, her wisdom and wonder? What happens when our guidance and goal is to harmonize with her deeper wisdom?
As I write today on April 22, 2020. Mother Earth is metabolizing a fever, the rampage and avarice of our current civilization. She is helping us seek breath and balance, urging us to draw upon our collective wisdom and insight and to break our unconsciousness habits to remake how we live with each other and with all sentient life.
In this understanding Gaia herself is a sentient being and we are being asked to reawaken to the Spirit intrinsic in all Matter, to honor the sacredness of Mother Earth.
As humans we are all born of Mother Earth and if we are honest and generous with each other, and when we finally break free from the current amnesia wrought by successive generations born into a dreaming of nuclear families and cookie cutter housing developments; a world of children who become adults sent off to work in cubicles in big corporations and global factory industries: a society with no direct connection to where their food is cultivated or their water sourced; a society of people who live in cities made of steel with egregious stratified economies ; a misaligned dream where we have the capacity to destroy the web of life though military arsenals and our rampant consumption. When we finally awake from this illusion we can begin to source the deep roots of our generational wisdom guided and informed by Her.
Our New Story Begins...
Our new story begins when we remember that we are a people who once grew and will grow abundant vegetable and herb gardens. When we reclaim that we are a people who remember the names of trees and streams and when we remember that we are a people who mark the passages of life and the seasons with song and ritual born of reverence and understanding to our deep interconnectivity with the Earth and each other. A new culture is born when our culture reveres the Circle of Life that honors our children, elders and all sentient life and people from all walks of life.
New Life begins, when we give thanks at every meal for the gift of food and clean water, and the blessing of Life. It is then we can slowly start to reclaim our humanity, because no matter the color of our skin, our ethnic or cultural origin if we go back far enough this knowledge is in our roots and in our DNA. The Earth is are home and we know how to live with Earth, and we will regain this wisdom again once again if we choose.
This comes with a warning: The dominance and prevalence of Homo Sapiens is not a given, it is not a right and it is not a certainty. “More than 99 percent of the five billion species, that ever lived on Earth are estimated to have died out.”
Humanity is here by grace and we will continue to flourish or become extinct through the fruits of our actions. We will reap what we collectively sow. We are full participants in our future.
It's Time to Remember
One of the gifts of the human species is we have the ability to actively and consciously participate in the dream of the future. Humans have imagination. We are makers. We are active participants in the collective prayer with the Earth, with Gaia herself. Let's unleash and synchronize our collective wisdom, vision, and power, let's create our new world and the present moment consciously born from love, clarity, and compassion. This is both an inner and outer practice. It will take time. This is not a quick fix, but we can do it. She is asking us to listen and to remember.
What are we willing to give up to help birth ourselves back consciously into the Womb of Mother Earth’s Wisdom?
Let's remember our essential interconnectedness with each other and all life.
Let's create our future from the VIBRANT SEED OF LOVE.
Blessed Earth Day 2020.
My LOVE to you All. My prayers with you all.
