You Are of the Earth

This planet is your physical home.
While it is true that you are a soul
temporarily inhabiting a physical body,
and will one day leave this plane of existence,
while you are here,
it is good to remember that this flesh that you live in
arose out of a process of millions of years
of life struggling to survive and express itself.
 
You cannot separate the body from its environment.
Land, sea, sun, and sky are the building blocks of your being.
 
It is unwise to take for granted
that which makes your life here possible.
Today, let your prayer be one of gratitude
for the ground under your feet, the water that refreshes,
the sun that lights your way, the sheltering sky,
and all the life forms with whom you share the planet.
 
The human race will not always have this place to enjoy.
If you don’t love the land,
you are rejecting some part of yourself.
 
A lot of life came and went
in order for you to breathe this air
and see the sun rise.
Be grateful.
