At this very moment, all the delightful hues of green surrounding my home.
Admiring the new growth at the tips of most evergreens. Color popping up all over the place.
And the Peepers, how I love their song, heralding Spring.
The Earth is alive in song, and color.
I am so grateful that I rarely miss an opportunity to notice, to take a deep breath and say “Thank You”.
The smell of pine trees after a rain.
Ooo, yes! Isn’t that the most amazing smell?
When I look at the mountains and the rivers and the lakes and the stars and the sky- that I know I am part of it- dust and sticks and dirt and stones.
Everything. It keeps me here, alive: so gravity holds me here and air, water and access to food keep me going. But it does it with such panache, creating so much beauty and diversity, doesn’t it?
Wherever I have been in nature, there was pure beauty in an uncountable and most beautiful variety. A gift, which is given freely, abundantly, not asking for anything, an overflowing cornucopia of pure life in all its abundance. Overwhelmingly beautiful when only I mindfully stop, look, and be there and present, it gratefully brings things in perspective. To experiencing it with all my senses. To remember to be deeply thankful for the overwhelming gifts for example before starting to eat, for Mother Earth´s sharing of food and of any form of life so freely as well as for letting me be here, nourishing me and all of us, you who are so essential for our all shared life here on earth also.
I love everything about Mother Earth. I love her water and how it nurses us and everything in every way. 🌍
I cannot choose . . .
everything about the earth
and I feel awe
at every landscape, seascape, mountainscape, skyscape,
desertsacape, gardenscape, rockscape,
that I see . . .
I am forever grateful to my mother
for helping me to see these things.
My father used to do a sermon on our first Sunday back from camping somewhere,
about the beauty and glory of nature,
highlighting whatever it was we saw on any particular trip.
I don’t know about the congregation in general,
but I was enthralled
and lived the experience over again
through his eyes.
She is my loving Mother.
The Earth and everything on it is an amazing gift. So much to see, hear, smell, touch…So many emotions it generates – awe, wonder, thankfulness….
As well as enjoying the beauty, I love the way it puts things in perspective – I’m such a small dot on the earth.
But most of all I love it’s healing properties. At my lowest points, it has been turning to nature that has saved me. Even now, I walk every morning, rain or shine, dark or light, cold or hot and I always feel renewed.
I would say i love the chlorophyll green the most.the green that sucks up the sun and gives it back to us in nourishment
I like the fact that it grounds me. The earth in its natural state is calming…the sounds, sights, and smells. The fact that it is not uniform – that we can experience the earth in so many different settings – mountains, ocean, desert, forest…. and environments – rain snow sunshine wind.
Earth is the most giver and it teaches us to give. I love it being so kind on us and letting us to live on it. It gives us oxygen, water and food. It has million billions species living on it altogether which is a miracle. I love being living on Earth.
I don’t as such love Earth or anything in general I am just thankful to be able to live a nice, privileged life that a lot of ppl dont. But the smell after the rain relaxes me it’s almost like the earth is telling me that every beginning is beautiful you just need to start to do what you love. I’m just waiting for that one day when the smell would envelop me whole i.e. The day I die
It is home and sustains us with familiar elements, smells, sensations, patterns, night-time views, and physical laws, wherever you go.
The Earth in and of itself is a gift. We are part of that gift. How we take care of her and ourselves reflects our appreciation or lack there of. It is an organism. We are the microcosm in the macrocosm. We can’t talk about the earth without deep respect for its beauty and majesty and endless wonder. We are still discovering its ecosystems like the ocean for instance. If you got a chance to see My Octopus Teacher on Netflix you will see the underwater forest that need to be protected that few people know about. I could go on and on about climate change and the effects on all of us and the cost it has had on the earth, the animals, minerals, microorganisms etc. I don’t want to go there. I want to instead appreciate this moment on earth and do my best is small and simple ways to preserve her and hope for generations that follow to do the same. Someone posted The Bell Chant. If you haven’t yet seen it its on U tube. Worth meditating on and hoping for the restoration of the Earth in all its beauty and wonder.
