|Greetings to our friends & community, Spring has sprung and Earth Day is right around the corner. This is the perfect time to stop and appreciate our global home and the amazing gifts that Mother Nature as life gives us. As we go about our full lives it is easy to take for granted the air we breathe, the water we drink and the abundance of quality fruits and vegetables most of us have access to.Taking time out for reflection about our relationship with the life around us grounds us, opens our hearts, feeds our souls and connects us to a sense of awe and amazement for the beauty, fecundity and diversity of life.
Spring brings the invitation to take stock of our relationship with the life around us, to pay tribute to, and to find ways to give back to that which sustains us. We could take on the practice of looking for more efficient and effective ways of relating to our precious resources both individually and as a matter of public policy. We as life are not separate from all of life and yet our impact on the planet has been considerable.
May we find our rightful place in all of creation and continue the movement from domination to collaboration.
