She walks the path of the druids, giving and receiving from the trees, honoring their wisdom.
Hers is the living staff - the leaves growing and dying in cycles, the sap running and slowing, and the roots walking along beside Her as they enrich our communities. She holds the living staff of love.
It is an effort to continue writing, for the image evokes a tremendous calm of no-thought, and such bliss that I dwell within Gaia and no words come, only a smile, a deep breath, an incredible Divine peace.
She is immanent and I honor Her creations, the most intricate of which is our entire manifest world in which we experience a life of the senses.
No rage in Her storms, as She only seeks to rebalance.
No malice in Her deserts, for She continues to weep tears from her depths to soothe.
No anger as She observes our clumsy attempts at control, for She knows we are growing.
She experiences Herself through us, through Divine Diversity, and remains in a space of loving equanimity, always ready to provide solace for She is resilient beyond our imagining.
She is the cathedral where I sit and walk in awe, glorious Gaia. I rest in Mother Nature's womb and She is here within me and I in Her, and She brings me trust, faith, an innocent belief that I am connected, we are all connected, and everything is exactly as it should be.
I say grace for ever-changing, ever-lasting Mother - Gaia.
