In the creation story in Genesis God shapes human bodies from the dust of the earth and breathes life into them. Literally or figuratively, doesn’t this tell us that God is our Father the earth is our Mother?
Over the years I have found myself becoming more in tune with the rhythm of the seasons. The call of autumn to prepare for winter is becoming increasingly strong. Winter is my most creative time. When the weather drives me indoors the inspiration for writing and creating art becomes very strong.
We must pay attention to these things. We are meant to live in harmony with the earth, not control it, use it for our personal gain and then discard it. If we destroy the earth we also destroy ourselves.
Our mother earth speaks to us. It’s up to us to listen.
