Blessing for Earth-Healers
We give thanks for all those who are moved, in their lives, to heal and protect the earth, in small ways and large. Blessings on the composters, the gardners, the breeders of worms and mushrooms, soil-builders, those who cleanse the waters and purify the air, all those who clean up the messes other have made. Blessings on those who defend trees and who plant trees, who guard the forests and who renew the forests. Blessings on those who learn to heal grasslands and renew the streams, on those who prevent erosion, who restore the salmon and the fisheries, who guard the healing herbs and who know the lore of the wild plants. Blessings on those who heal the cities and bring them alive again with excitement and creativity and love. Gratitude and blessings to all who stand against greed, who risk themselves, to those who have bled and been wounded, and to those who have given their lives in service of the earth.

May all the healers of the earth find their own healing. May they be fueled by passionate love for the earth. May they know their fear but not stopped by fear. May they feel their anger and yet not be ruled by rage. May they honour their grief and not be paralyzed by sorrow. May they transform fear, rage, grief into compassion and the inspiration to act in service of what they love. May they find the help, the resources, the courage, the luck, the strength, the love, the health, the joy that they need to do the work. May they be in the right place, at the right time, in the right way. May they bring alive a great awakening, open a listening ear to hear the earth’s voice, transform imbalance to balance, hate and greed to love. Blessed be the healers of the Earth.

Poem

Weather


The Good Lord is not to blame

For the rain and the wet

If we care about the bear

And the loss of the bees

The floods and hurricanes

The death of trees

We would wake up and know

That we are the ones who make it so

 

The good Lord is not to blame

For the change in the weather

Olympic Games won't make it better

The loss of the birds and butterflies too

When will we wake up and know

That we are the ones who make it so

 

Ice caps are melting

Fires are burning

Floods cover the land

Here at home it's business as usual

As we hide our heads in the sand

 Seaford
