The Moving Land Below – 8 Earthquakes Shake New Zealand

 

 

 

 

The earth moves, according to the korero which was shared with me, when the earth-bound atua Ruaumoko, shifts and turns within the puku of Papatuanuku.  

She herself had been turned asunder by her sons so that she may never again see the proud face of her husband eternal, Ranginui, who had to be separated so that the mokopuna of the mighty atua could live.

We – meaning plants, birds, trees and oceans, clouds, mountains and people – are those Mokopuna and all live today because the earth provides sustenance, whilst the sky nourishes our collective being.

And inside, Ruaumoko moves, as he did 8 times across Aotearoa – Te Wai Pounamu today (Sunday 21st Jan, 2012).
