Falling in love with Earth

/ February 13, 2022/ Holistic Nutrition

​In time for Valentine’s day, I found inspiration on how to change our relationship with Earth. I tend to avoid the commercial frenzy about Valentine’s and celebrate love to everyone as it is custom where I grew up.

“We are the Earth  and we are always carrying her within us.
Realizing this, we can see that Earth is truly alive. We are a living, breathing manifestation of this beautiful and generous planet. Knowing this, we can begin to transform our relationship to the Earth. We can begin to walk differently and to care for her differently. We will fall completely in love with the Earth.”

Love letter to the Earth. Thich Nhat Hanh.

In this book, you can find deeply touching Love letters to the Earth. I recommend writing your own love letter as way to explore how do you feel about Earth. I discovered some hurt and sad feelings that I didn’t know I had.

In Valentine’s day, I invite you to take a mindful walk in nature. Every step like a gentle kiss on the land. Pacing yourself so that you can look deeply into trees,  grasses, birds, and all the living beings that you happen to see. Smile at each one of them. Realizing Earth is also a living being. Realizing we are all connected. We are all one.

Let’s find joy and nourishment by deepening our relationship with Earth.  Let’s fall in love with Earth. Let’s celebrate love pure and simple!
