Thank you Father Sky and Mother Earth

Olivier Manitara shares this on Gratitude:

Stand in living nature, between the earth and the sky.
Feel the earth under your feet; feel how the earth carries
you and holds you up.

Feel the infinite sky above you; it inspires, straightens,
and elevates you.

In the sky, think of the origin of your spirit and
of your intelligence.

In the sky, think of the origin of your eternal soul, of the
higher universal consciousness.

In the earth, think of the origin of your terrestrial soul,
of your individual consciousness.

Feel yourself as a living union of the forces of the sky and
the earth, of the infinite and the development.

Kneel on the ground, and with your right hand, dig a little
hole in the earth.

Put your hands together in front of the centre of your chest
(mystical heart), in the sign of prayer and inner union with
heaven and earth within you.

In this sacred posture, let a beautiful light, a force, a
presence of the heaven flow through you: the omnipresence
of the Father of all living beings. You can imagine a diamond
light, transparent like pure water.

Bend down with love before Mother Earth, and place your
hands around the little hole. Bend down completely so that
your mouth is laid on your hands.

Offer then by your word the "thank you" of heaven to
Mother Earth; offer also the "thank you" of your heart, and,
through it, the "thank you" of the heart of humanity.
