“I once experienced a violent earthquake, and my first immediate feeling was that I was standing on the skin of a gigantic animal that was heaving under my feet. It was this image that impressed itself on me, not the physical fact.” Carl Jung.
The way we perceive the world around us depends entirely on our way of looking at it.
If we understand the Earth as a living breathing organism, we can heal ourselves and heal the Earth as well. When our physical body becomes sick, we need to stop what we are doing, rest, and pay attention to it. We must stop our thinking, and return to our breathing, the in-breaths, the out-breaths, and come home to our body. If we can see our body as the wonder that it is, we also have the opportunity to see the Earth as a wonder, and healing can begin the the body of the Earth. When we take care of ourselves, we heal not only our own bodies and minds, but we help the Earth as well.
