Incredibly beautiful huge twin tree trunks 🌿 Sometimes to reconnect with oneself we need to reconnect with nature. Mother Earth - The most beautiful, mind blowing source of life! The most beautiful HOME to all life! Plants, animals, humans… I could never be grateful enough for it. Without Mother Earth we would not exist. We need to care for her, respect her, show her love, give back from what we have taken and heal her from what we have destroyed. Like Mahatma Gandhi once said “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” Let us all be mindful and keep this in mind 🙏❤️ Happy Earth day ❤️🌍 here’s a nice little excerpt from @mysticmamma written by Jamie Sams: “The trees are called Standing People because they are our teachers. They do not walk about like human beings, but they do hold the energy of the Earth and Sky.
“The roots of the trees go deep into our Mother Earth, and their branches reach for the sunlight high in the sky. These teachers of the woods show humankind how to balance the male and female energies present in every human being.
“Through their example, we can learn how to give and receive. The trees are firmly grounded in the Earth and are reaching for the heaves with their branches, showing human beings how to be bridges between the tangible and non-tangible worlds. The balance of demonstrative and receptive is found in the heart of humans and in the trunk of trees.
“These living examples of balance allow humankind to discover the flow of life force that brings inner peace. It is circular and flows up through the roots to the tops of the branches, traveling down to the roots again, creating a recycling of energy.”
