By Brandon Alter:
Do you know how deeply this planet loves you?
Do you know how supported you are?
Even if you feel alone right now. Even if you are frustrated. Even if all your friends and your family abandoned you, you would have more champions than you can imagine.
The simple fact that I am sustained by her, day after day, with food and water and breath and beauty all around is enough to remind me that I am so loved. That this planet dreamt me into being and loves me enough to keep dreaming me forward.
I realize that sometimes it’s hard to feel how held by spirit we truly are; it’s like a fish being able to grasp the ocean it swims in. We don’t quite have the scope to see the unlimited energies in the invisible world that want so badly to help us find our soul’s path and follow it completely. But I am here today to remind you that you are not alone, that YOU ARE SO LOVED.
And the next time you feel the sun on your face, or the wind in your hair,
may you receive just how loved you truly are.
