By physical standards, I am separate from other things on this earth—the ground that supports and feeds me, the water I drink, even the air I breathe. When I shift into spiritual awareness, I recognize the oneness of the tapestry of life. Not one thread can be pulled without changing the whole.
I contemplate life teeming in the rainforest and the ocean, as well as the icy reaches of the polar caps. The ecological actions I take ripple out to support elements in this living organism we call home. I am grateful for the bountiful home we share, cocreated through the activity of Spirit.
Recognizing the oneness of all creation, I commit to being a good steward of the gift of life expressing on this planet.
The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it.—Psalm 24:1
