Moonday Musings

MoonDay Musings: Community

For me, one of the most important aspects of our spirituality — and personal growth — is our connection with others, our connection with the Universe and with Mama Earth.

One of the primal lessons from Mama Earth is that we thrive in community. As the poet John Donne said so long ago,

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.

Each of us contributes to the well-being of the whole through our skills, resources, gifts, time, friendship, and support. We may appear to be separate but we are all formed from the same stardust, the “stuff” of the universe, energy and DNA threads.

Know (or remember!) that:

Nothing in Nature lives for itself
Rivers do not drink their own water
Trees do not eat their own fruit
The Sun does not shine for itself
A flower’s fragrance is not for itself

Living for each other is the Rule of Nature. The light that you hold for your Self also lights the path of others.

What can you do today to support your Self and others?

What can you do today to reinforce your connection with your “tribe”, your community, and Mama Earth?

  1. Today I am making seed balls with some of my neighbors to help restore our little adopted section of Blackland Prairie in Dallas, TX. We are using seeds gathered by Master Naturalists from healthy Blackland Prairie to be planted to help drive out the invasive plant species taking over our beautiful White Rock Lake Parkland.

    1. I love that! Coincidentally I was planning to share how to make seed balls as part of the upcoming Spring Equinox course! I made some recently at a local no-waste/recycle event and scattered a few on a local greenway that is rewilding after being a train track for a number of years. We were using indigenous plants for our seed balls too.
