The Earth is so many things and we are many things as well. We are made up from the earth in a complex yet simple way.
When we die, we go back to the earth in whatever way that may be, whether in ashes or whole. In a lot of ways we are very similar to the Earth.
We go through cycles as Human beings just as the Earth goes through cycles, just on different scales.
The Earth asks us to be content with how it is, to be content with ourselves and know that everything will change and grow at the pace and ways it needs to.
We must give back what it has given us.
We give back in a different way than the Earth gives us things but it is all connected and when we give back things that are toxic to the Earth, soon enough the earth will have no choice but to give us back that toxicness.
We must realize that we are a part of it. We should not try to change it because we want it a certain way or because we might be sick of something. It is how it is and it will continue to grow and change just as we do.
