My Planet Earth or The Gift

In 2013 when I was in an extreme state of mental illness, I got it into my crazy head that I would clean the trash from the road sides.  I think I picked up about 5 or six large garbage bags full.  I had a line that would pop out of my mouth, "I clean it, I claim it."  Well, certainly I could not claim city property.  I don't know why I said it.  Maybe in another realm I could claim it in some magical thinking way.

While grabbing trashy objects I was very fortunate as planet earth presented me with a self portrait.  I found a green bowling ball hidden in the grass.  I brought it home an painted it with blue and white swirls to make it more life like.

Today I was in my closet and noticed it with fresh eyes, it does have a magical feel to it.  I held it in my arms and meditated Om Mani Padme Hum.  I had the youtube monks meditating with me.  While meditating I imagined myself as the Earth Mother.  I thought about what I wanted to the garbage in the oceans.  I imagined the oceans teaming with life as they once were.  I thought of a planet without smart phones and cars.  I could see forests with old growth trees and pristine lakes.
