This project asks only that you observe solemn and spiritual silence with gratitude for our Mother Earth and all the ways she cares for us as part of herself. May we understand in our hearts how deep and true and powerful her Mother-love for each of us is. We are some part of her. May we be mindful that our highest qualities are a reflection of her highest qualities. May we be mindful that our Mother Earth is the source of all sustenance and the nurturing of our very lives. In contemplation, may we realize truly our inextricable ONENESS with our Mother Earth.
