kiss the earth with your feet

“When we walk like we are rushing, we print anxiety and sorrow on the earth.

We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the earth.

Be aware of the contact between your feet and the earth.

Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.”   Thich Nhat Hanh

  • ‘Come into my country, it is woven in song
    This is where you will find me, this is where I belong

    Beneath a litter of regret, beneath fallen life
    A strong seed waits, a sure love lies

    Where you walk I hear your grieving
    Where you stop I feel your guilt

    The feet of your respect barely touch the earth
    As your heart fears to trust where it has once been hurt

    I will hold you like a story carried from a distant land
    Broken upon my shore, I will let you in

    I will feed your dreams, I will fill your hope
    And like a seed you will open

    Come into my country, it is woven in song
    This is where you will find for what you long
    This is where you belong’
