A LETTER TO THE EARTH

Dear Mother Earth,

Every time I step upon the Earth, I will train myself to see that I am walking on you. Every time I place may feet on the Earth, I have a chance to be in touch with you and with all your wonders. With every step I can touch the fact that you
aren’t just beneath me, dear Mother, but you are also within me. Each mindful and gentle step can nourish me, heal me, and bring me into contact with myself and you in the present moment.

Walking in this spirit, I can experience awakening, I can awaken to the fact that I am alive, and that life is a precious miracle. I can awaken to the fact that I am never alone and can never die. You are always there within me and around me at every step, nourishing me, embracing me, and carrying me far into the future.

Dear Mother, I make the promise today to return your love and fulfill this wish by investing every step I take on you with love and tenderness. I am walking not merely on matter, but on spirit. – Thich Nhat Hanh.
