What does Earth ask of us?

View Question Background

For centuries, people in extractive economies have asked everything of the Earth—food, shelter, spiritual solace, water, weapons, birthplaces and burial grounds. The question so seldom asked is the reciprocal: What does Earth ask of us? If we are to nurture relationships of renewal and reciprocity with the natural systems that sustain us, it’s very much worth asking what the Earth (literally or metaphorically) summons us to do or to be. What do you think?
