It’s silly of us to think that Mother Earth wants gifts or sacrifices or prayer from us. It implies a conditional relationship where it isn’t possible. The Earth loves us unconditionally and infinitely.
What Mother Earth wants is our love. Our unconditional love. What it means to love the Earth will be different for everyone because we all have a different relationship with her. It might mean recycling or cleaning up trashed campsites or thanking her for the food she provides or planting a seed.
Earth is the most important life form that we engage with on the day-to-day basis yet is often just seen as a background or food on a plate.
None of us would be here without her. So love her with abandon.
