The Body of the One-2
This Earth that is my Body is suffering
as the glaciers melt and the ice disappears,
and the animals can no longer find food.
My Body that is the Earth’s Body
grieves with each pang of a drill
that drills deep into the crust
that is Her flesh,
affecting not only the outer layer of Her Body
but the inner layers as well.
For what body that is physical can be
pierced without it having an effect on
without it disturbing the harmony of the whole?
Even though the wound may heal
and scar tissue form,
the energy disturbed at the opening
ripples through all layers of the Body.
This Body cries to be recognized
as sacred, as holy,
so that only those in holy relationship
with it will affect it,
and with utmost reverence will ask
its permission to take from it
in ways that will serve both Earth
and human need.
From this place of sanctification
new harmony shall emerge
in which all needs can be met -
the needs of animals,
the needs of plants,
the needs of people,
the need to sustain the balance
of the Earth’s energies,
in keeping with Her existence as a holy Being.
O sacred Body of the Earth,
I pray and weep for you each time
a drill enters your holy vessel,
and ask that all be made right -
that the consciousness of humanity
may come to know that it is
one with your Body, one with your flesh,
and that all must live together in holiness,
for all are One.
