Walking Gently on this Earth

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet. We have caused a lot of damage to the earth. Now it is time to take good care of her. We bring our peace and calm to the surface of the earth and share the lesson of love.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Lifewalking gently on the earth

In writing his description of a Walking Meditation, Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us to live in awareness of how much we take from the earth, the damage we do to it, and how much it freely gives us. A timely reminder to lift our game as we welcome Earth Day.
