Imagine the Earth is the tree and that we are a leaf. We think that the Earth is the Earth and that we are something outside of the Earth. But in fact we are inside the Earth. We may think that some day we’ll die and we’ll go back to the Earth. But we don’t need to die in order to go back to Mother Earth. I am in Mother Earth right now and Mother Earth is in me. We can say, Breathing in, I know Mother Earth is in me.Breathing out, I know that I am in Mother Earth. – Thich Nhat Hanh, in “Love Letter to the Earth”.
