Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

The truest and deepest way to weave ourselves back into the web of life on this planet, and the truest and deepest way to court the world soul which permeates it (and us), is to forge the truest and deepest relationship we can with the places where our feet are planted. Here and now. Today. Maybe not forever who knows but today. Where our feet are planted right now, in this place, in this moment, the only place and moment in which we're alive. To love the places we're in, whether we think this love will be forever or whether we imagine we're just passing through. Because those places are open to us, reaching for us. Relationship is at the heart of what the land longs for the land is no different from the humans that walk in it and on it, looking always for meaningful connections. It goes both ways, what we feel for the land. It's a relationship. A two-way conversation. It’s not all about us. What WE feel. What WE need. The love goes both ways and so does the pain. This land is alive. That has consequences. It changes everything.

OK, this was just what I needed to read this morning. Windows are open and sun is shining in, but I need to get out and walk on some small patch of my land (wearing a mask of course.)
