The Beauty of Earth

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure
as long as life lasts. There is something
infinitely healing in the repeated refrains
of nature — the assurance that dawn comes
after night, and spring after winter.

  1. The Natural World has always been my Sanctuary and the sacred place I go for healing. Your work beautifully exemplifies this world view. I strive to live in harmony with the cycles of the seasons in my daily life, and I always feel nurtured by the energy of balance in your posts. Thank you. Steve

  2. Much strength also comes through the recognition that All of nature is interconnected and interdependent. So I offer a heartfelt thumbs up to those brave enough, and secure enough, to honor rather than seek to conquer nature…

    And so I honor and thank you, Eddie, for the beautiful reminders of these natural truths… 😀

  3. Hi Eddie. I couldn’t agree more. Seeing the sunrise, sunset or a beautiful blue sky, a bird or a butterfly or even a spider weaving his web, all lift my spirits and make me relax and smile. Have a great week.

    • Hello Kim and yes it is such a good feeling. ‘Peace on Earth’ has been and continues
      to be humankind’s most favored feeling next to ‘love thy neighbor’.

kindness is always welcome
