Listen to the Earth

Put your ear to the ground. What do you hear? In what language does our Earth speak to you?

Can you hear the hundreds of thousands of earthworms turning and fertilizing the soil, carrying out their singular and necessary purpose in the web of life?

Can you hear the billions of roots of grasses, trees, wild plants and “weeds” food plants and flowers of all descriptions, reaching deep, stretching down, absorbing water and nutrients?

Deep rooted prairie grasses

Can you hear the fur bearing creatures in their dark and cool burrows, the snakes gliding almost silently along the Earth through the tall grass? Can you hear the nearby stream flowing quietly?

Can you hear the millions of ants creating their underground cities, marching in unison, intent on their building project, living their lives, feeding their families?

Can you hear the underground rivers, streams and aquifers, the water fresh and cool, lapping in dark rock shelters? Can you hear the slow dripping and dropping of lime infused water from ancient stalactites in secret caves so far beneath the surface of the Earth?

Can you hear the deep hum and vibrations of the bedrock, the foundation of ancient stones that supports our home?

Can you hear the humming, the sound of creation as your ear tunes into the subtler frequencies of the Earth’s spinning, her movement in space?

Can you hear the deep and awesome harmony of creation? All is one great symphony of sound and vibration.

The earth speaks to us in her language of stone, metal, water, fire, air, soil, seasons, night and day, and abundant life of all descriptions.

Underlying all on our Earth is the sound of creation, the great hum.
