My greatest teacher is Mama Earth… I learn so much from her. What do you learn from Mama Earth? Or perhaps you have another teacher with whom you connect even more?
These words by Canadian poet Shane L. Koyczan express my feelings for Mama Earth much more eloquently than I could.
I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up
I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go
but I am here to learn.
― Shane L. Koyczan
