I am the Earth, the Earth am I.
…I hear the breath of nature;
Mother Earth inhaling and exhaling her love
For all life;
Her wind whispering in my ear.
Attuned to the echo of the Universe,
Its rhythmic hum pulsating through my being,
I too become one with its vibration,
I am still
I feel the peace of heaven on this earth
I see that we are all one with another
All intertwined in the fabric of life.
On this slope, amongst the junipers and pines,I know God.
