Young people all over the world connecting up to address the climate crisis.
The interconnectedness of all things — becoming more and more aware of this reality, and acting more and more from the love that this awareness engenders.
I want to learn more about the people involved in the Work That Reconnects. When I left my work as a wildlife veterinarian, completely broken, over six years ago, I thought it would take a year to heal. Looking again at Joanna Macy’s process, I feel some hope that perhaps it is a way forward for me. Thank you, Gratefulness Team, for supporting the work.
The weathered gray pine boards of the porch floor. They were once trees as alive as you and me. The little fly that lands there momentarily and its intricate shadow, so discrete that even the front legs rubbing together are replicated. Thank you for this moment of seeing.
Dear Pavithra, thank you for this very beautiful, poetic exhortation. Your images and words are music for the dance of celebration with the coming spring. May we all dance.
Early morning. So quiet. I step out into the dark and go to a place in the yard where I can feel Mother Earth rising up under the soles of my feet. A gentle pressure in the arch that rises to the level of the heart. A moment of greeting, gratefulness, deep love and concern. Asking for help to do everything I can to protect her.
Hi Amy, just to let you know I am cheering you on, my axolotl friend 🙂
Thank you, dear Palm. I felt a burst of hope when Greta Thunberg arrived in New York city via sailboat.
Dear Antoinette, this is just to say that I “see” you there, shining. I applaud your courage and wish you the best this week in taking action towards re-opening your business. Your sharing has encouraged me to lower my own mask. Namaste.
Holding you in light, dear Pilgrim.
Thank you for your kind reply, pkr. I am so sorry for your difficult situation. I wish you all the support you need. Please take care of yourself as you navigate. May you be safe. May you be healthy. May you be happy. May you be at peace.
Oh, Mary, I really feel connected to you. Thank you for reaching out. I cannot imagine the difficulty of your work and want to support you in any way I can. I know you must be an extraordinary teacher, so full of compassion, curiosity, creativity. I keep thinking about the art project you created for your students to learn about indigenous peoples. I was truly wowed when you shared that. I so hope for the sake of the children that you can find all the rejuvenation you are needing.
Blessings of peace be ours.
Hi, Antoinette. Thank you for seeing me.
Hello Deb, I also sit listening to the wind and it feels special to share this experience as I have missed seeing you here. Sending love from grateful sea.
Thank you, Ose. A deep bow as I celebrate with you your unfolding.
Dear Anna, thank you for sharing this. My doubt has loomed so large lately. And yet, as you remind me, what remains a truth is love.
Oh Debra, I smile when I read this. I too have known this love.
He is still with us (scroll down to the beginning of this thread) but has changed his photo, now wearing a black cap and glasses 🙂
I love the simple truth of your answer, Deb. Thank you.
