We are told to walk lightly on the earth, to leave as little of ourselves behind as possible. I understand what this means; I try to live lightly on this beautiful planet of ours and I weep for the way we have ravaged Her and treated Her creatures.
But as human beings – or souls incarnate – surely our job, while on this earth walk, is to evolve, to create and to share our creations?
I believe we come here to learn – as someone once said, we are a curious race. As individuals, we have diverse gifts.
Instead of trying to meet the futile demand to leave nothing of ourselves behind, for nature will do that for each and every one of us in Her own time, perhaps we should think of how our footprints can make a difference.
