Today (like every day) I celebrate that you and I belong here— in our beloved Earth community! Today I speak out against the greed that is harming the plants, creatures, and people that I love. Today, as the too-strong spring winds are howling here in New Mexico, I pray for the trees. May I have the humility to bend and grow at the same time, like the poplar, pear, and cottonwood.
I made this art last year for the Brave Joy Collective, on the Humility theme. I’ve shared one of the Brave Joy spiritual practice pages here too, in honor of Earth Day.
You’re welcome to join us in the Brave Joy Collective, if you’d like to receive a monthly art print and practice set in your mailbox!
Please also consider sending a donation or getting involved in Earth-forward groups working to change policies that protect the planet and our communities. Two of my favorites are the Sunrise Movement and the Third Act.
Recycling is awesome, but it’s really greedy corporations and harmful policies that need to change. It doesn’t have to be this way.
With more gratitude than I could ever write, for all the beings and our Earth home.
