I Am the Earth

"I Am the Earth" appears on our EARTH album. It is a quintessential teaching on inter-being and inter-connectedness, inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh. We are not "on", "of", or "with" the Earth...we ARE the Earth. Only when we fully wake up to this truth will we will begin to care for her properly. This song gives us words and music to remember the truth we know in our bones.

Lyrics:

Verse 1 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 

I am the rocks and the rocks are me 
I am the trees and the trees are me 
I am the mountains, the mountains are me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 

I am the rain and the rain is me 
I am the rivers and the rivers are me 
I am the oceans, the oceans are me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 

I am the air and the air is me 
I am the wind and the wind is me 
I am the sky and the sky is me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 

Chorus 
It’s the truth of interbeing 
All things near and all things far 
All things seen and all things unseen 
We all inter-are 

Verse 2 
I am the fire and the fire is me 
I am the sun and the sun is me 
I am the stars and the stars are me 
I am the light and the light is me 

I am the people and the people are me 
I am the creatures, the creatures are me 
I am all beings, all beings are me 
I am you and you are me 

I am peace and peace is me 
I am joy and joy is me 
I am love and love is me 
I am the Earth and the Earth is me 

Chorus 
It’s the truth of interbeing 
All things near and all things far 
All things seen and all things unseen 
We all inter-are 

Tag 
This is the wisdom 
That will spark our awakening 
This is the medicine 
To meet our suffering 
It has the power 
To heal and restore 
This is the answer 
We are looking for
