Every now and again, something stops me in my tracks and I take a moment to observe the world. Or rather our world, our planet – earth.
It never ceases to amaze me what the earth provides for us; everything single items we possess, every morsel we eat, all that we wear, the places in which we live, the air we breath. Every single thing that we come into contact with, comes from this amazing planet.
And, it is not just what earth provides us now but the amazing fact that we are created from the elements of the earth, we too constitute water, air, heat, minerals etc.
We are made of, live upon, and utilise all that earth offers us. We have the intelligence to be able to mine, meld, mould and transform all the resources around us for the benefit and profit of ourselves and others.
All that we are comes from the earth, all that we have comes from the earth, and in the blink of an eye we will return to it, not just as an individual but also as a species. We come and we will go and yet the earth will continue far beyond our comprehension as it has already done for billions of years, with or without us.
Thank you earth, where we would we be without you!!
