A Letter To Mother Earth At A Time Of Great Change
Dear Mother Earth,
We have had our differences throughout the years without a doubt. As you cried for balance, we strove for advancement and success. As you pleaded for gentleness and compassion, we turned a blind eye and created more conveniences and waste.
But something is changing. Humanity is awakening once more, and is deciding to make changes. Mother Earth, we are beginning to once again listen. The stories and teachings of our ancestors, that spoke of perfect harmony between the human world and the natural world are being retold. The ceremonies, the offerings of thanks, for the natural produce by which we live, and for the kindness and compassion of our fellow brothers and sisters, are being once again performed.
The change is hard. There is great loss, great pain. There is resistance to change. There is a dark cloud which tries its best to remain hanging over us. But, this will pass. The pain, the suffering and the darkness will pass. So sure are we of this passing, that we are already preparing for the new age. We are already welcoming it into our hearts, and into our community.
The stars, the light beings which represent our ancestors, our guides and our gods, are hanging lower in the sky, many ascending onto the earth to guide and assist in bringing about this change. As we walk the land, we walk alongside them. When we listen, we can hear their guidance in the whisper of the winds. When we make our choices, we can hear their guidance deep within our hearts.
Mother Earth, we are sorry for the neglect we have shown you, for the irresponsibility by which we have lived, by the lack of action we have taken in the past to prevent further damage. As humans, imperfect beings with forgetful minds, we understand that we are here to learn and grow.
We understand that we are here to make mistakes in order to correct ourselves. So as we strive to create a better relationship with you, we will also strive to build a better relationship with ourselves. A relationship built on forgiveness, compassion and understanding.
An understanding of our human limitations, but also an awareness that, deep inside us, is a fountain of knowledge, knowledge collected through the aeons since time began.
I have been shown that when we are still enough to sit patiently at it’s waters, not only we will reconnect with this knowledge, but we will see the reflection of our godlike selves when we gaze upon the waters. At that moment, we will have all the information and awareness to bring this world into a better state of being, one in harmony with you, Mother Earth, and in harmony with all living beings.
Please be patient, we are almost there.
