In celebration of Earth Day – How can it be any other way?

Image by ~edera-ladygoth deviantart.com

Paying reverence to all forms of creation,

Honoring everything affects every person, place, thing or situation,

That’s how our ancestors lived,

The sacredness of every thing and being is what they believed.

 

Modern man lives very stressful lives,

We spend time in Nature to increase our vibes,

Being in Nature is quite healing indeed,

But to truly heal, watch your every word, thought and deed.

 

The earth and its inhabitants is a total living system,

Humans comprise a small percentage of this system,

Yet our influence and effect on Nature is so much larger in proportion,

See the sorry state of Nature resulting from our irresponsible action.

 

Something clearly isn’t right;

The system is out of balance, when are we going to see the light?

And balance is what Nature has to offer,

A reflection of our world – both inner and outer.

 

Our ancestors paid reverence to all forms of creation,

Yet look at us now, in the midst of conflict and separation,

Let’s learn from how our ancestors lived,

In the sacredness of one and all they believed.

 

Our ancestors depended on each other,

They counted on themselves and every tribal member,

They depended on everything and everyone around them,

They depended on the entire living system.

 

And as we join in the celebration of Earth Day,

May we pay reverence to her today and every other day,

May we draw inspiration from our ancestors back in the day,

When they lived harmoniously with Nature, how can it be any other way?

  1. So true about our ancestors, ans even the generations that raised me up in a small Texas community in the fifties and sixties. They still lived outdoors, close to the ground and the soil beneath it and everything above it, and still walked at night or sat on porch swings talking and aharing their lives and stories. that sort of communal connectiveness with each other and the whole of earth and nature is a lifestyle we have to demonstrate to our younger generations, especially at the youngest ages. We Americans, especially, are not always good at honoring old ways and wisdom of those who came before us though. Then again, I may just be an old graybeard fogey, lol)

    • Yes, Rev. Paul, before we completely lose touch with nature , ourselves and each other. Especially with all the technology gadgets that we have allowed ourselves to be enslaved by. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a gathering around a camp fire with everyone tweeting or texting… 🙂

      I long to reside in a community similar to what you described. And I know quite a number of us do and there is a growing segment sharing the same vision. And I will continue to imagine such a community, even when I’m an “old graybeard fogey” 🙂
