Good morning wild ones,
I’m sharing the words that poured forth this morning as I sit considering that we, you and me, are of the same earth. Here are two quotes, which I posted on my facebook, that inspired me along with wild woman as she speaks through me.
“The earth is what we all have in common.”
“I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.”
I know that we share this earth, that you feel and that I feel. I know that my body and yours feel the same earth through our senses. I know that I feel the earth and that I feel you when I see you, hear you and when I read the news whether its in a paper, on facebook or your face when I see you. How do I live, how do I love, how do I honor this relationship, this kinship as daughters and sons of the earth? Here is what came this morning to me through my feelings and into my words. I’d love to hear back from you….What comes to you? How do you live? How do you love, How do you savor these precious relationships..you and me?
I am part of the earth as you are part of the earth, our earth.
I am birthed of the earth, she is my mother, our mother.
You are my sister, my brother, my love.
You breathe the air I breathe, our air.
You walk the ground I walk, our ground.
You cry the tears I cry, our tears.
You laugh the laughter I hear and feel, our laughter.
You smile the smile I see, the smile that makes me smile too, our smile.
Your heart beats as does mine, our rhythm, our song.
You love with your beating heart as I do.
Our hearts sing one song when we love.
Your heart is my heart, your sorrow my sorrow
You are me, as I am you.
You are me that wakes in the morning in bed with me, my love.
You are me that births me into this world, I am you, flesh from your flesh.
You are me that holds my hand, that sees me across the subway train in the morning.
You are me that wakes, that weeps, that is born across the world.
You are the earth. I am the earth. I am you, you are me.
I must remember this and honor this with every breath.
You are my love.
I must remember this when I seek my joy; when I take the journey through sorrow, allowing myself to feel what is, this world of feelings within me.
I must remember that I take this journey to joy, of being me, of feeling free to be me,
I take it for you and me.
It is you that I love, when I love me.
I am part of the earth as you are part of the earth.
I am the earth and I love her.
