Loving the earth with your hands, your actions, your attitude is a powerful and powerfully unifying way to love yourself. Because the earth reciprocates the love it receives. You become more and more conscious of it once you give it a try. Everything alive appreciates love.
(Except the human being, maybe, but that is a long, convoluted story, not exactly poetic or harmonious. Though it has to be said from time to time.)
The earth responds to the love you pour into it. Your efforts bless you with health, a sense of belonging, and a confident, friendly outlook.
