You carry Mother Earth within you.
She is not outside you. Mother Earth
is not just your environment. In that
insight of inter-being, it is possible to
have real communication with the Earth,
which is the highest form of prayer.
Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.
We humans have lost the wisdom of
genuinely relaxing. We worry too much.
We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and
we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.
When we are in touch with the refreshing,
peaceful and healing elements within ourselves
and around us, we learn to cherish and protect
these things and make them grow. These
elements of peace are available to us anytime.
Life can be hectic, if I make it so, and lately that is what I’ve done. I decided this morning that it’s time to slow down and be more present to this wonderful life I lead, so I searched out the wise words of Thich Nhat Hanh, because who better to remind me that PEACE IS EVERY STEP. Have a peaceful and joyful weekend.
