Be One with the Earth

Be One with the Earth
Image by Bessi

Whenever you have the opportunity, lie down on the earth -- in a meadow, in the forest, on the bank of the river...

Just lie down on the earth and feel one with it. That will give you much energy, fresh energy.

Just sit silently on the earth and feel joined with it - as if you have roots, and those roots are going into the earth and the earth is vitalizing you, nourishing you.

Man Has Invisible Roots

Man also has roots; they are invisible.

Man is also like a tree. The tree has visible roots.

Man is a moving tree, but he has roots in the earth.

Sky and Earth Meet Inside You

So whenever you find time, just lie down, look at the sky, and let there be a meeting between the sky and the earth deep inside you, and you will feel tremendously happy in those moments.
