Gratitude means being thankful for everything including my own existence, based on the realization that this whole interconnected interacting Earth and beyond including my existence is a gift. Living that awareness is medicine, that is, is wholeness and health for the living Earth and for me. In becoming aware of that I begin to feel the healing power from gratitude to the living Earth. I practice gratitude for my immediate small part of the living Earth by taking care of it, not polluting and exploiting and destroying it, and by advocating for environmentally healthy practices and policies on a planet level.

Gratitude is key to our existence. A grateful heart appreciates life and all that come along, the wild and the close, every part of our environment. God created humans to have oversight of the Earth, as stewards, we are not to destroy but to "till and keep". It is only when the seeds of gratitude birth in us that we tend to appreciate nature and the connectivity we have with everything our Creator has made. Let's nurture gratitude, it will bring healing to our world.
