The Earth laughs in flowers,
To see her boastful boys,
Earth-proud, proud of the earth which is not theirs.
From Hamatreya by Ralph Waldo Emerson
About Our ‘Laughing Earth’ Yoga Mat
Most of us see flowers in simple terms; splashes of colour that give us pleasure. The poem suggests that flowers should remind us that owning the land is a laughable notion. In the poets’ view the Earth laughs because the Earth knows that it owns us.
Our Laughing Earth microfibre suede yoga mat will help you concentrate on your physical and spiritual connection to the Earth that owns you. To help ground your practice and bring your focus and energy back to the present moment – you and your yoga mat.
