The difference between good and poor living is how you make it. Many of us have had a good life, yet remain poor in our finances. Over the ages the situation really hasn’t changed. We have all encountered similar lifestyles and work ethic; it is how you put them to use. Pioneers first stepping on the prairie built their spirits with love for the land. The beauty was all over and obviously they felt they were doing little harm with their small plots. Little did they know what would become of this beautiful ocean of flowers and grasses. What had taken eons to build only took decades to destroy. The prairie once had a good life, but what is left leaves it with poor finances.
When someone was in need in this beautiful land, it often has been neighbor helping neighbor that has helped many of us prosper both in wealth and spirit. This could help the prairie to prosper again. We all need to take some heed of the lovely flora and resources it has to offer. It may only be a roadside planting you are enjoying, but watching it prosper offers a wealth in spirit. Many have lost touch with their spirit and have forgotten what made this country strong. They set aside a need for work and feel others should take care of them. This isn’t what kept our growth strong and we all need to work at understanding this spirit better.
So it is up to you to start this regrowth of spirit for the land. We are all stewards of this beautiful world and can make things better by all working together. Neighbor helping neighbor, just like what built this mighty land. The power this could build would provide a wonderful life for generations to come. We need to be aware of all that is around us and not ignore problems that could be easily remedied. We won’t have the mighty oceans of prairie, but we still can create seas, which could become oceans once again over time. It is a continued effort, just as our lives have been throughout the generations.
Whether in large or small prairie areas, I hear that gentle song. I listen to what is going on as I enjoy the ever-blooming sequences of love and compassion. I can hear those children playing while they traveled through this area with their families. The thrill of new treasure inspired many people to travel here. On words of others they sometimes looked for that easy life and found many complex challenges. It was succeeding that made their lives fuller and built community spirit. It is success with our prairie restoration that will build this spirit even stronger even though it is such a gentle song. Listen to the sounds around you and enjoy the beauty offered, it us not the size of the package that matters. The spirit is always there. Feel that spirit as it is carried along, on a gentle prairie breeze.
One thing about compassion
Is that it comes with definitive grace
It’s easy to show someone how you feel
When you look at them face to face.
