A World of Blue

We search for signs of life out in space, but there is a world on our very own planet that most of us can hardly imagine. A world of beings without feet, of aliens with fins or tentacles, of creatures that can withstand enormous pressure, or glow in the dark or see the world through electrical signals or sound.

What of our world do you wish you could witness or understand?

Under Our Feet

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” —Henry David Thoreau

How do you find the sacred in the literal ground of our being?

Above Our Heads

Our planet is not just the ball of rock and water that we stand on. It is also the thin layer of atmosphere that we cannot see, but which all life depends on. The oxygen we breathe, the carbon dioxide and nitrogen that sustain the plants, the cycle of evaporation and precipitation—it may not be what you think of as “the earth,” but without it there would be no earth as we know it.

What things that are essential to your health and happiness tend to escape your notice?

Rooted

“If we surrendered
to earth’s intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke

Fallow

The earth loves dormancy as much as growth, and without fallow time a field will cease to yield a harvest.

How do you seek times of dormancy and rest?
