Words Inspired by the Natural World

April 9, 2020

I recently posted some thoughts inspired by the current pandemic we are experiencing on Facebook. I was not expecting that this post would be spread so far and wide in just a few days. I am amazed and humbled that the message resonates for so many. The Unifying power of Mother Earth is profound. I am honored that the message of connecting with Mother Earth and the natural world is being spread so widely. And from my humble viewpoint, I believe this connection to nature is what we need on a collective to move through this together. Having a post go viral during a viral pandemic has been quite the experience and I have been reflecting on its meaning. I plan to share more reflections in the near future, for now, here is the post from April 7, 2020 at 8:22 am:

If you believe this virus is spread human to human, the antidote is building the immune system with eating plants & natural medicines and sitting in nature alone or with your immediate family, soaking up vitamin d & sunshine

If you believe that this virus is symptoms of 5G exposure, then the antidote is sitting in nature, connecting to Mother Earth, building your immunity with eating plants and natural medicines - submerge yourself in water & dirt

If you believe that this is all a hoax and you just need to sit back while Q saves us all, then the answer is sitting in nature, build a garden for the new earth, commune with God, eat plants & natural medicines that strengthen your connection and open your channel to the new earth frequency ~ ascend with her

If you believe the economy is collapsing, and authoritarian dictatorship is imminent, the most radical thing you can do in protest is build a garden, releasing dependency on the system

If you believe that Mother Earth is mad at us and purging the human race, the answer is go outside and listen, build a garden, align with her

The answer is always nature. Always.

We do not have to argue about the why.

The antidote is obvious.

Alignment with the mother, with our source of nurturance.

Remembering everything we use and need comes from her.

Give thanks. Humble. Slow down. Observe. Listen.

When I was a little girl,

I spoke to the Earth and the Earth spoke back

I listened to the space between the silences,

Voices in the wind,

the information in the static

I found comfort there

I listened,

I followed, I was safe, whole, complete.

And as I grew older, I asked the physical world, the grown up society:

“why are we pretending to be something we are not?”

I remember feeling a distinctness of two parts to our beingness:

one: the animal, the natural,

two: the briefcase, the office, the run around

I asked, why? Why are we pretending to be something we are not?

Why are we turning away?

I never received an answer,

but as school and the social worlds became more prevalent in my life, as teachers’ opinions grew stronger in importance than the sound of the wind,

I turned my back on her, the Earth for survival.

But she never left me, she just had to work harder now, in new ways:

through pain, confusion, misery, through ego…

and I was guided back to her through spirals,

again and again,

small glimpses of the magical life I lived as a child, before the chaos and confusion, opinions, trends, pressures, competition

and now through the twisted winding path

guided by ego, and grounded by faith,

I remember

I am here again,

I can hear her in the wind, gentle whispers of the tress

And I am

committed to her once again,

I ask her:

how do I best serve you in this life? In this body?

In this world so disconnected, how do I best serve you in this life?
