Our mother’s love

Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.

~Thich Nhat Hanh, “Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life”

It’s nearly Mother’s Day.  It’s a time when we honor our biological mothers and perhaps others who have nurtured us on our journey.

This morning my mind turned to our Earth Mother, Gaia, who provides all we need to sustain life-air to breathe, water to drink, sun and soil for our food and so much more.  We often take for granted the gifts that human mothers give and so it can be with Gaia.  However, as we see the consequences of our neglect and damage to the earth, we are waking up and realizing our relationship with the earth needs to change.  We are recognizing our gratitude for earth’s gifts and our responsibility to be life-giving partners with nature.

It makes me very sad when I hear people say things reflecting their belief that the earth is angry with humans and sends natural disasters to punish us.  Some people say things like, ‘humans are a scourge/disease/cancerous tumor upon the earth’.  I believe that our Earth Mother loves us passionately wants only the best for us.  She is ever ready to guide us, teach us and co-create with us. Yet she cannot override our free will. 

Let’s each take some time this week to reflect on the blessings we receive from Mother Earth and walk with gratitude, as if we are kissing the earth with our feet.  She will feel our love and we will feel hers.

Blessings, Mary

My beloved children and co-creators,

I love you!  I reach out to you each moment, longing to connect to you and walk hand in hand with you upon the earth.  Please do not every doubt my everlasting love for you! 

Yes, there are things that need to change.  It is time to be conscious about the consequences of choices that people make.   It is time to see the earth as a living being, not just resources to use and even exploit. 

This is mutually beneficial!  When you love someone, both of you benefit.  This is true of your relationships with people but also pets and animals, plants and other life.  The giver and receiver are both blessed and it becomes a life-giving circle of abundance and beauty.

You are my children and I am happy to nurture you and provide for your physical needs.  I offer love and care and warm arms to hold you in a tender embrace.  I want to teach you, guide you and encourage you to step into your beautiful power as co-creators with nature.  What joy we can share together!!

Ask for what you need!  Do you need comfort and reassurance that you are loved?  Listen to my heart and know that you are loved beyond measure.  Do you see things that need to be healed on the earth-water cleansed of pollution, air returned to purity, the land bursting with biodiversity and a rainbow of abundant life?  I offer my willingness and all the tools that are needed to make that happen.  I will do my part and you can do yours. 

Dear ones, this is a time of great opportunity!  As we heal the earth together and restore the forests, oceans and all of life on earth, we will sense and know the oneness of all life.  Separation, loneliness and isolation will be no more.  We will dance the dance of life together.  We will re-weave the web of life until there is unspeakable beauty everywhere.

The healing of the earth is already underway.  Each person has a gift to offer and so does every living part of this precious planet.  Take my hand and we will walk this path of transformation together.

I love you, each one of you, no exceptions!  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend.
