Hi Earth Listeners,
This week we will be looking at seeing Earth as our lockdown companion. Recently l have been speaking to several friends who live alone, and for a variety of reasons don’t have a local relative to be in a lockdown bubble with. The amount of isolation and loneliness they have been experiencing could have been considerably lessened if they had been brought up to regard the Earth, the trees, the hills and the ocean as their friends. In life friends come and go, even partners can come and go but our one constant companion is the Earth. By choosing to deepen our relationship with the Earth, we can protect ourselves from experiencing the degree of deprivation that many people are suffering from during lockdown.
There is a glow, an irrepressible joy that spontaneously arises within us when we really listen to the Earth, or any of Her myriad forms of life. When we are able to still our mind and start to breathe with Nature….. breathing in the oxygen the trees have just exhaled and becoming aware of them breathing in the carbon dioxide we have just exhaled….. then start to deeply relax…. we begin to realise we really are an intrinsic part of the whole…we actually belong here… we are part of the Earth.
From this life changing deep connection we then become able to listen and hear what is the next step we need to take, in our unique capacity as the individual we are right now, to become “the change we want to see in the world”.
You are very welcome to join us in this enriching exploration of our connection to the Earth.
We'll send you the Zoom link the day of the event.
Do join us at 5.30 GMT this Friday. Here’s the time in your zone https://everytimezone.com/s/83dde47e
