Our planet is magnificently abundant; it provides for us every single day. We have everything we need when we truly stop and think about it.
Take a minute now to appreciate the beauty and the abundance.
the air we breathe
the natural springs
the fertile soil
the variety of seeds
all of the fish, animal and plant species
the billions of microorganisms
the variety of fruit, flowers and vegetables.
The herbs and spices, the minerals.
The amazing human body that allows us to experience this world,
all the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and sensations,
the cultural diversity of all our people
and how absolutely everything is interconnected and allows for the flow of life.
In this beautifully designed system nothing is wasted; everything is recycled.
This abundance is available to all of us.
It would make sense that the best possible use of our human energy would be to keep that natural flow going, to truly see it and appreciate it.
To be in service to that life force,
to focus our energies on working with it to meet our real needs at this crucial moment.
To care for the flow of life, for all that we share.
To be stewards of that flow.
Not owning it, but lovingly caring for it so it can continue.
Our biggest problem is a vision problem.
A framing vision that makes it hard to care for all the things that matter the most.
We all can be stewards of the Earth.
