Respecting Mother... Every day.

"Mother Earth, you are my life support system. 

As your child, I drink your blue water, live inside your red clay and eat your green skin. 

Help me to balance myself as you hold and balance the Earth, the sea and the space environments. 

Help me to open my heart knowing the universe will feed me. 

I pray my boots will always kiss your face and my footsteps match your heartbeat. 

Carry my body through space and time. 

You are my connection to the universe and all that comes after. 

I am yours and you are mine. 

I salute you."

That was a prayer/mantra/morning greeting to our mother.  I first heard it in "Men Who Stare at Goats"  I did change one part in the beginning.  I took out the word soldier and replaced it with child.

Honestly, I think it is the true Hail Mary.

Namaste ya'll.

I need to see that movie.

Hey Jojo,

Happy Equinox to you too! May your leaves turn brilliant colors!


Yea, I think you'd dig it! As I was watching it, I was thinking it would be even more amusing if I had some good weed! But it is not necessary.

This reminds me to take a garbage bag on my walk today.

It makes me feel so good to see the ripples of my small and humble existence.

Thank you for helping. I will take a bag with me to the Post Office!

love you

I am yours and you are mine. How's that for union and deep connection with the Universe/MotherEarth/Source?
Wow. I'm going to say this to myself throughout the day and see what happens. Thank you so much!
