She is just on a holiday
All this while we have been worried about our own bucket list and travel diaries! Humans use holidays for travel and some kind of rejuvenation from daily monotonous life. Now its her turn to do the same. She is planet Earth! She is just on a holiday.
When we work for our employer or home, we perform certain repeated tasks within a given framework or a fixed template. Though this repetition could be after few hours or days or weeks for different people depending upon their tasks involved. However our employer be, we still wake up everyday and finish daily tasks or intend to at least. Now when this happens for a long period of time, for months or years, we think of taking a break.
This time too someone got tired of a busy routine. The only difference is now its her turn to go on a break. She needs to be rejuvenated. She needs to be refreshed. She needed peace from her employer, the humans! Humans get everything from the earth, at least now we should realise this.
All those climate change meetings by the world leaders went into vain! They were just like those meetings by the executives and HRs of a company to resolve the employees issue. And due to company’s business and financial goals, the solution always used to be in the company’s favour. But she needed a break from us. Hence She went on a holiday. She is just on a break.
We had gotten selfish and we didn’t even realise this until now. We use her for our benefits and pleasure and never realise the truth. The truth is everything we have today belongs to her. We just exchanged it from someone through our services. The air we breath, the food we eat, the medicines that cure us, its all given by her. You must have heard, specially during the guided meditation, about showing gratitude to the nature. We just forgot that we are nothing without her! Now the time has come to realise and show gratitude towards her.
It is not only a break for her but for us too! There is no constant buzz or noise from the traffic. There is no stress of when to go back home. Just feel grateful that the sun is still rising. Just be glad that the air is still flowing. Just cherish the fact that you’re still breathing. Just enjoy your holidays with your family. Enjoy whatever you are eating. Go for an introspection and get better. Give her a surprise when she returns!
Just like we miss our family and friends when we are on a holiday, she is missing her children too! And she is already preparing a return gift for us. What people are saying with phrases “Earth is healing” is nothing but her gift for us. She wants to take care of us better than before. She wants to give us a better air to breathe. She wants to give us a clean water to drink. She wants to give us those forgotten relations! She still wants to give us so much even when she’s on a break.
If we think of her as our mother and assume all animals and humans are her children, she would have to deal with her most naughtiest kid in whatever ways possible! To teach that kid how to stay at home (:P ) with siblings! To make that kid better! Because she loves all her children :). She has to make sure all her children live in peace not rest in peace!!
Remember, if we love her, she will love you back too! Definitely there could be more worse scenarios than what we are seeing during this so called pandemic!
