Kinship with Life
ElderPride Practitioner Betty Harris offers the following poem as a call to action to engage our Kinship with Life.
Kinship With Life
When we open to ourselves, our lives, and our Earth
as sacred, something changes. When we allow the
spirit of the Earth to touch us; when we live in contact
with the trees, the clouds, the moon, and the soil, when
we know that the animals and plants and rocks are our
neighbors, then something precious begins to awaken.
The forests become cathedrals, and the birds singing in
the trees become choirs. We experience all forms of life
as part of a great fellowship, and we begin to realize what
a tremendous privilege and joy it is to be able to live
harmoniously with the whole fabric of Creation.
Betty offers that the above is a page from The Awakened Heart, by John Robbins and Ann Mortifee, (P. 17). It is deeply healing to me and represents a visual that in times like these, I am yearning to experience – That “great fellowship” with “the whole fabric of Creation.”
