we are all from the earth. we are all like the earth. beautiful, harsh, subtle, calm, frenzied, cold, warm, full of light, in the dark. we are human. Adam was created by god, formed with care from the adamah, the Hebrew word for earth. so many times people try and shut out their emotions, accepting those that that are easy and rejecting those that are harder to control. the whole point of being alive and from the earth is to experience this whole range of what it means to be fully human. take in the spectrum of emotions, let it consume you sometimes. for without knowing pain or sorrow or anger, how will you ever know healing or joy or love in your life?
