Our Land

Who used this ground for food and rest before it became a building site?

Have you ever thought about who lived where you live now, before there was a house? Can you travel in time and see them? Bugs and mice, birds and mammals, snakes and frogs … and the trees, the grass, the flowers?

Yes, this planet belongs to us, too. But we are not alone and not the only ones who need some living-space.

And we plant flowers in our parks and the bumblebees enjoy them too.

And the dove loves the fountain and the water just as much as we do.

But so far, we have taken 40% of the land on this planet to produce our food and to live on.
The best land.

The house sparrows and several other species know how to share the land with us.
Other species don’t find our fields or gardens suitable so they vanish.

When I work with “Who is Embracing?” and embrace as Big Heart of Humanity or the Biosphere, those questions become so very close and alive — I am the homeless fox and the dead toad. We all are.
