Make the Earth your Companion…. Walk lightly on it and let it be your teacher of how to live life well. This is such an inspiring and beautiful poem.
Nature teaches and is always present for us to learn. When we pause and are present with the universe, we can learn. J. Patrick Lewis wrote this poem as a reminder of lessons available when we take time and make the Earth our companion.
We do not live separate from the Earth and its inhabitants, sentient and non-sentient. We live in relationship with the Earth. This suggests the companionship is direct and active, dynamic and energetic. Companionship is about breaking bread with another. When we journey as companions, we are in communion calls on us to be stewards and serving the Earth and the relationships we live in. Communion is fellowship and mutual participation, an exchange of energy which is life-giving and affirming.
Make the Earth your companion.
Walk lightly on it, as other creatures do.
Let the Sky paint her beauty- she is always
watching over you.
