The Ground Beneath Your Feet
by Marilyn Jenett
Today is the 44th 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,
Billion Acts of Green, "Mobilize the Earth," and "The Face of Climate
Change" (so you could add your face to climate
change with over a billion people who have pledged to do just that).
This year's motto is "It's Our Turn to Lead," and I especially like one
their catchy (and personally appropriate) slogans I found: "We
love two types of green here."
However, I'd like you to
take a moment to consider this celebration as it also 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
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.
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
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
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
knowledge and experience can keep YOU grounded in an understanding of
the laws, then I am truly fulfilling my purpose.
