“The earth has music for those who listen.” ~ Shakespeare
We are all just visitors here on planet Earth, and how long we will stay no one knows. But like all good visitors we should remember our manners and always be respectful and kind.
Visitors should always clean up after themselves, never trashing and polluting the area they reside. It’s always the responsibility of the visitor to take great care and pride and leave things in pristine condition so the beauty of the environment can shine through.
We humans are not the only beings visiting Earth. There are many creatures we share this place with. It’s all about living in harmony so we don’t disturb the delicate balance this place depends on. That’s why walking gently is so important. That’s why every action can have great consequences. Even the actions of how humans treat one another.
It may sound like a big burden having to be so careful while we’re here, but it’s not. It’s just common sense. When we are good to this planet the planet will be good to us.
Go outside and connect to Mother Nature. Breathe in the fresh air. See the beauty all around you. Fertile ground, flowers, trees, fresh streams, rivers and oceans. So much for the eyes to take in. These are the gifts, and so much more, this planet gives to us in return.
So before we depart from our wonderful visit, let’s make sure we’ve done a good job keeping our Earth safe, because we were a part of this sacred place while we were here.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” ~ Albert Einstein
