Kiss The Earth

by Thich Nhat Hanh

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

I love this poem, words to live by and remember through good times and bad.  It is a poem of light and hope.  They are a reminder to take the time to stop and appreciate the good in the world, the good in your life.  They are a reminder that there is good and happiness and beauty in the world.  You just have to find it and open yourself to it.

I love the meaning and imagery of it.  The idea of walking in peace and touch others with peace.  The idea of walking in happiness and spreading that to those around you.  Like the Butterfly Effect, a single step or act can change things for yourself or for someone else.  A fresh breeze to spirit away the negative, a blooming flower to bring beauty.  The Earth, the world, it is a part of us; it grounds us, giving us stability.  That same stability that we need to feel in ourselves in order to be complete.  Beautiful.
