Life is a cycle of connectedness. We all are connected as human beings.Life begins because of connectedness between two beings. Life is sustained and flourished by connectedness. We all are connected with nature. We are a part of nature, not apart from nature.Our being is made up of five primordial elements:earth,water, fire, air and space. What is inside is also outside. We have organic connection with life within and life without. It is our sacred responsibility to express our gratitude to the life giver and sustainer, the Mother of all, the Mother Earth.
We need to awaken and sustain this spiritual awakening in our everyday life.We may remain awakened when we read a writing like this or listen to a spiritual discourse or be in the presence of an awakened soul.. And then we go back to sleep. We get disconnected with the source of our being. We waste and dump toxic chemicals in water, we poison crop, rip soil, pollute air because of ignorance and at worst by greed. In the name of progress, we cut the sacred chord of life. We ignore and deny the inconvenient truth.
This is a serious global challenge. We will save our Mother Earth or kill her. We all need to take responsibility and make right and wise choices for sustaining and flourishing life everywhere.We need to wake up and remain awake for preserving life of all beings, us and nature. This way we can express our gratitude to the Creator.
May we have an awakened mind and a grateful heart for the survival, sustenance and flourishing of our Mother Earth.
