The Earth as our Teacher:
The Earth is in its natural state – living, breathing, being. It is as it is. Within this state it holds intelligence and deep natural laws which govern its way of being. Spending time with the earth can help us to find the same within ourselves.
It teaches us about stillness, about letting go of expectation, about accepting what is and honouring the natural cycles of birth, growth and death. It helps us to see the madness and dysfunction of our minds and the terrible results of resisting life. At the same time it models to us an appealing alternative – to be humble, at peace and to trust in the ever turning cycles of life.
