 Post subject: THE BLESSING OF DEVOTION by Julie
PostPosted: Mon Mar 21, 2016 4:42 am 

"Devotion in its true meaning is the expression of the desire to give to and to bless those we love deeply out of the bounty of our love and out of our desire to do all that is possible to benefit the welfare, growth, and wellbeing, on all levels, of the beloved.

Devotion can also be toward that which is not human. It can be toward the creatures of the Earth. It can be toward the forests of the Earth. It can be toward the Being of the Earth itself. What we love deeply stirs our desire to express as the gift of our love, of our caring, of our desire to nourish.

In relation to the Earth as in relation to human beings, devotion is manifested by the continuity of our caring for those areas that are in greatest need of our help. Out of love, we seek to insure that wellness is maintained and that no harm comes to the beloved. Just as we do not let young children out of our sight when they are a certain age, knowing that they cannot take care of themselves, our devotion toward the Earth requires that we keep a continually watchful eye on those parts of the Earth that we feel need us most, her forests, her creatures, her oceans, her skies, her land masses that are crying out for our attention."
