I am in Love with Mother Earth
Thay alaways says that we need to love Mother earth and only through love we can save her
When I think of the beauty generosity, diversity unity and greatness of mother earth I am truly in awe
we felt, here in Bhutan, the tremor of the latest earthquake in Nepal. We were sitting in the basement of a newly built hotel in Thimphu...I guess the worst place to be during an earthquake...luckily it was only a tremor, but right in this moment I felt how
small we are in the face of the BEING EARTH,
She tolerates us on her ground, but when she moves, she stretches, she turns in pain then we are just like tiny little ants crawling on her surface, helpless...we need her solidity, stability, she is our
true home, we need to aknowledge her BEING, respect and worship her, look after her and certainly love her
She gives us her endless generosity, she rejuvenates us through her beauty, her incredible diversity, creativity, her wondrous shapes, forms,
smells, colors, all the fruits, vegetables, trees, flowers ...mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers, clouds, sun, moon and stars...all the living beings that call her home, animals, birds, fish, but also the invisible beings like the wind, the sounds, the light
and many many more beings of nature that live in all of earth's forms
Here in Bhutan the "local deities, nature beings", beings of rivers, rocks, valleys, mountains, lakes etc are still worshiped, KNOWN, by everyone,
this is one of the reasons why Bhutan is felt by everyone as being so "special". These beings invisible, yet on whom we are totally dependent, are still known by "name" they are SOMEBODY and recognized and worshipped as such!
I am convinced a time will
come when we will all rediscover the importance to worhip, to aknowledge these rivers, lakes, mountains, valleys as BEINGS not as mere things,
we will one day all remember their names, may it be in Europe, Amercica, Asia ...we have separated ourselves
from this reality and cut off the deep connection to the living forces of nature and this is why we can exploit, destroy nature in such a cruel way, If we knew nature as "YOU" as a being with a true name, we could not do this!
Whenever I feel
"down" "discouraged"...I try to feel what is not right in my life...oh! I realise I have not been enough in touch with Mother earth lately, I need her wisdom, her beauty to feel whole, to feel well and grounded
Of course I also need my loved Ones, my
husband, family and friends as they also, just like mother earth nourrish me through their beauty, generosity, wisdom and incredilble diversity and joy!
They too need our recognition and Love
Yes I am in LOVE
