Today in sensing I was making sounds, humming sounds, feeling where they come from and how they form. I noticed vibration in my throat, then, down into my heart, and then all the way into and through my feet into the ground.
It was a revelation. Sounds I make vibrate not just into the air, but also into the ground. I could feel the resonance as though I was a bell struck, still ringing and sending my sounds into the air and earth.
What power and need for care.
Thich Nhat Hanh says: “Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
I say talk the same way. Our words and thoughts meet the earth, and we can choose to meet the earth within ourselves and the earth under our feet with kisses that caress and spread.
