Fuck it - hug a friend ....
And if you can’t hug a friend, well then, hug a tree... because you see, trees are there - meant to be - a magnificent source of ancient strength and wisdom
They will let you lean into them and hold a safe space for you to feel.... perhaps they can even help you heal
And if you have faith - they will whisper, just listen... the voice will appear deep within
Trees are majestic - a huge part of nature... nature being, to me, the one truth we can taste, touch, feel and see
In even what appears to be chaos, nature is pure harmony
She’s perfect and beautiful in every possible way, from big ancient wise trees, to every speck of desert sand
Let her show you the way; if you let her... she will take your hand
Sun rises every morning, and she sets every night... Whether or not you can see her, we can always count on daylight
The rain falls from above, generously into the land
The trees grow toward the sunlight even if they are forced to bend
You walk through a forest, and see all the fallen branches and shrub
Some might think it is a mess, unimpressed - but I see perfection and beauty
Mother Earth is a gift... and in truth a reflection of the possibility of who we can be
When you look unto the water - what reflection do you see?
The moon smiles at us, gracefully ... the stars in the sky twinkling as can be
The salt water air - provides our bodies healing ionic energy to breath into our lungs
The soil of the earth sending grounding energy into our souls
The beautiful sun graciously pouring Vitamin D into each body
It is from our land where all our medicine comes from, food of all colors, when nurtured and loved
Everything in nature so perfectly aligned, all of her in the right place - at just the right time
She wants to teach us- she wants to show us her ways...
She wants us to learn to live in harmony and faith
She is here, there and everywhere before us, there’s no way around it
Patient beyond measure she waits for us to notice
To take a part in protecting the land...
To wake up and take a stand ...
To love her and honor her as she deserves to be treated...
She’s not asking for much, if we could each just play our part...
It’s all the small things we can do - with everyday little choices - and an open heart
The simple ways we can honor our dear friend, our Mother, and her glory, again
Collectively yes it must be done, but for a collective change, it starts with one
And if you can’t hug a friend, at least hug yourself... be the friend you need most, because this is true growth...
Learning to love ourself is how we love nature and everyone else
She basks in the beauty of watching us lean into self, as the expression of love within, shines through in all that we do
And hey while we are at it ... why not embrace all 3 - hug yourself, and a friend, and even the tree .... hug it all - simultaneously....
Stand united - hug her together, wrap your arms intertwined around her, feel her presence sandwiched between you two, and close your eyes - let her wisdom shine through ... there is power where two or more gather. ❤️
