Not long ago I had the opportunity to hike to this magnificent waterfall. I was awed by the Earth's incredible power and beauty.
I've heard indigenous elders declare that Earth Mother is not a resource. She is the source of all life. The Earth graces all Her creatures with everything we need in order to flourish. Her sunlight, Her water, Her food, Her air...She shares Herself with all Her beings.
The elders speak of asking the Earth’s permission before you take from Her, taking only what you need, and offering a word of thanks for all we receive.
Powerful words to live by...
