EARTHISM FOR TREATING MOTHER EARTH AS A ZEN GARDEN
I bless Planet Earth and honor Mother Earth as my very own personal Zen Garden. I vow to treat the Earth with love, kindness and with the utmost of compassion. I bless and acknowledge Mother Earth for all the lovely Zen treasures she offers us, from water, to trees, to stone, sand, plants, moss, and gravel. I thank Mother Earth for being a place where I can find peace, serenity, and joy. I seek to be the Zen Master of my beautiful Earth Garden. I honor Planet Earth as a place of refuge and reflection just like the beautiful Zen Garden. As the poet William Blake once said, “I strive to see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower.” I love and honor the Planet as much as I love and honor myself. Today and every day, I seek to unite with Mother Earth and become one with her endless treasures.
