The Ground Beneath Your Feet

by Marilyn Jenett

Earth Day

Earth Day

Today is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, an important holiday created to inspire global environmental responsibility as well as appreciation for the land, air and water we all share. Mahatma Gandhi's quote, "Be the change you want to see in the world," was the Earth Day motto in 2010. The following years, some of the other mottos created 
by the Earth Day Network, www.earthday.org, were "A Billion Acts of Green, "Mobilize the Earth," "It's Our Turn to Lead," and I especially liked this catchy and personally appropriate one: "We love two types of green here."

But today's anniversary brought unprecedented historical and political significance. Thousands of scientists, supporters and protesters gathered at our nation's capital for the March for Science, and there were hundreds of other marches in the U.S. and around the globe. This year's Earth Day theme is "environmental and climate literacy" and the marches were the result of our new administration's policies and budget cuts for scientific research.

What I saw in these gatherings was our planet's citizens bringing Mahatma Gandhi's quote to life. I thank them for being our Earth Mother's spokepersons..

Now, I'd like you to also take a moment to consider this yearly celebration as it applies to our personal, individual worlds
our mental and spiritual environment. Yes, Earth refers to our home, the third planet from the Sun, and its inhabitants. But "earth" is also defined as the "ground beneath your feet." Over the years, in my study of metaphysics, I discovered that spiritually, our feet represent "understanding."

The biblical phrase,"a lamp unto my feet and a light upon my path," refers to the universal truth principles that create our understanding and give us spiritual footing.
I think as we honor Mother Earth and take responsibility for our actions to nurture and heal her, we can also begin to take responsibility for our mental, emotional and physical actions that keep us firmly grounded on a solid foundation, heal our faulty conditioning and nurture our faculty of understanding. This is the true path to success in life and business.
I also believe that our Earth Mother is a living, breathing, energetic entity that responds to the consciousness of her inhabitants. Our individual consciousness is an important part of the "critical mass" that can shift the energies of this planet. As we heal ourselves, we heal the world.

"When you save one life it is as if you saved the entire world."

—the Talmud

Truth principles, universal laws, or what I refer to as prosperity principles, can be learned with relative ease. I have been told and believe that my gift is my ability to present and teach these otherwise esoteric laws in a "down-to-earth" way that is easily understood and applied. I am profoundly grateful for my knowledge of the laws that turned defeat in my own life into the feet of understanding. I hope this inspires someone reading this to get back on their "feet"...and the rest of us to gain a stronger "foothold" in our prosperity.

If my knowledge and experience can keep you grounded in an understanding of the laws, then I am truly fulfilling my purpose.
