Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe when we feel safe in ourselves.
–Thich Nhat Hanh
What simple, beautiful words. I love the imagery conveyed when I think about “kissing the Earth with your feet.” Like every step we take has a direct connection to our earth. Respect and reverence. Love. Isn’t that what taking care of our earth is about? Having a profound appreciation for the earth’s beauty. Understanding that there is much to learn from nature.
These words from a great Buddhist teacher offer a gentle mindfulness and awareness for how we approach living our lives while we are here. With every step we take, there is something to be gained or learned from our world. Walk with peace in our daily lives and bring your love and happiness to it. Respect.
