As we offer ourselves greater connection, self-care and nourishment, we will naturally come into balance with the Earth. And vice versa.
If you tend to your own needs for rest and relaxation, you will naturally find yourself drawn to quiet time, solitude, perhaps time in nature and to mindful practices.
Spending time outdoors is the quickest and simplest way to plug back into nature and bring your awareness to the current state of the world around you.
If you become aware of your own need for balance, you will slow down from the frenetic pace of modern life. As you slow down, you will notice more of our wonderful planet.
Noticing leads to connection, and a remembering of our deep need for a healthy and vibrant Earth to support life.
This means healthy and vibrant food, healthy and vibrant water, and healthy and vibrant air. Is this not the best kind of love to give ourselves? The love of nourishment, health and wellbeing.
When you bring your awareness to how you are nourishing your body, you can make decisions about what food to give to yourself. One of the simplest ways to offer ourselves love, is through good quality nutritious, local and organic food. Less waste, fewer miles and more goodness.
It is a beautiful relationship that each of us can cultivate with our planet.
When we are in a state of health and balance, we have more energy to offer to the world around us. We become aware of the suffering that occurs around the world - through poverty, disease and climate change disasters.
Our awareness moves outwards. And so too, naturally, does our love and compassion for all of life.
We become aware of the vital role that we must play - no part is too small. Your part and your choices are absolutely essential to the overall balance of the world.
When we truly nourish ourselves, we realise that we must care for the planet. We are of the Earth, not just on it. All indigenous peoples know this. It is modern human societies who have forgotten - and must remember very soon.
Love yourself through the process, and appreciate each step you take. We have many more to go, but we can do this while maintaining our focus on expanding love and awareness to ourselves, our communities and our planet.
