Every day I begin with offerings to the unseen. The spirits around me and my ancestors. I sit outside and I listen with bare feet on the ground. I feel while I drink my tea.
I feel what the earth is feeling, I feel how I’m feeling and I begin my day from there.
At times I feel overwhelmed and really angry with how the world is today. Everything hurts now. I find I can’t experience real joy with anything because in the back of my mind I know how much damage we have done to the earth and ourselves.
I feel for our animals and how much suffering they endure every day.
Most people may not understand this and you don’t need to but the ritual of just listening to the earth and yourself and what you can do to better it each day is something I would like to encourage.
