In trying times look to Mother Earth for guidance. Notice how her trees react to what comes, how they bend in strong winds and stand still in calm air, how her flowers show their brightness in the sunlight and how they close in the dark of night, how her creatures instinctively know what to do no matter what comes in a day’s unfolding or a night’s drama. There is no better guide than she whom you walk upon, who’s air you breathe, who’s water sustains you. She is your mother too, for she supports you and keeps you safe no matter what happens. Even in her wildest moments she remains intent that this day is important and worth giving her all to, and that includes you, for she is dedicated to all of her creatures, including her human beings. Though you may forget her, she remains your eternal mother and teacher. There is always something new to learn from Mother Earth, for she teaches always. Look to her on this day and all days and learn her secrets, knowing that she wishes only good for you.
