When was the last time you just sat on your favourite part of your property and asked the question; “what’s this all about?”
Are you doing what you’re doing because you love what you are doing?
Many years ago I sat in just that place with the greatest of questions: “How does all of this stuff work?”
The answers to that question are still coming but until we decide to take authority for what we are actually doing with the land and as such, own our actions, we have to ask ourselves:
“Why are we doing what we are doing?”
The answers to these questions may hurt and invariably there is going to be some pain as we realise that most of our actions are not for the benefit of ourselves or the land.
When I came to that conclusion everything changed for me. For when you really attune yourself to your actual goals and that of the land, answers will come.
And it is certainly not for me to know what each individual actually requires, needs, or wants…
Maori have a word for this. Kaitiaki; it translates to trustee, minder, guard, custodian, guardian, caregiver, keeper, steward.
But what I realised is that to be a guardian of the land, I needed to get educated.
As my Grandfather used to say “the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”.
Not wanting to join those ranks I was looking at a blank canvas. And as a good friend had told me his Grandfather said “if it’s meant to be, it’s up to me”.
Being in possession of what you could call an overabundance of confidence and sheer bloody mindedness, the journey began.
Are you ready to step off the treadmill and take responsibility for the Guardianship of Mother Earth?
