“It’s been said that the Mother
Earth was the first Indigenous
After all, she is the original life
giver. Her blood our fresh water,
flows like so many veins and
capillaries, forming rivers and
tributaries that sustain us.
We evolved to exist in unison,
forever linked and connected as
relations. We are a part of her,
star-dust children of the Sky and
She is the Divine Feminine,
Creator, and Mother.
There is no humanity without
~Ruth H Hopkin
“There is one masterpiece, the hexagonal cell, that touches perfection. No living creature, not even human, has achieved, in the centre of one’s sphere, what the bee has achieved on her own: and if intelligence from another world were to descend and ask of the earth the most perfect creation, I would offer the humble comb of honey.”
The Life Of The Bee, 1924
“You carry Mother Earth within you.
She is not outside of you.
It is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer. In that kind of relationship you have enough love, strength and awakening in order to change your life.
Changing is not just changing the things outside of us. First of all we need the right view that transcends all notions including of being and non-being, creator and creature, mind and spirit. That kind of insight is crucial for transformation and healing.
Fear, separation, hate and anger come from the wrong view that you and the earth are two separate entities, the Earth is only the environment. You are in the centre and you want to do something for the Earth in order for you to survive. That is a dualistic way of seeing.
So to breathe in and be aware of your body and look deeply into it and realise you are the Earth and your consciousness is also the consciousness of the earth.
~Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist Monk
