I don’t know about you, but for the past decade or so I have felt a powerful force at work all round me.
I have seen it too!
It is a Universal force of such incredible energy that at times, I feel overwhelmed by it.
This force has made governments tremble and grown men cry.
It is unstoppable, all-consuming and, at times, can appear very frightening indeed.
Mankind has tried to tame it, harness it, even destroy it.
All to no avail.
She abides… Have you heard her call?
Are you listening?
Her name is Earth.
She is our Mother, our home, our future.
Humankind’s greatest priority is to reintegrate with the natural world. ~ Jonathon Porritt
If we are to use our tools in the service of fitting in on Earth, our basic relationship to nature–even the story we tell ourselves about who we are in the universe–has to change. ~ Janine M. Benyus
Our little Spaceship Earth is only eight thousand miles in diameter, which is almost a negligible dimension in the great vastness of space. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction. ~ Rachel Carson
The world of life, of spontaneity, the world of dawn and sunset and starlight, the world of soil and sunshine, of meadow and woodland, of hickory and oak and maple and hemlock and pineland forests, of wildlife dwelling around us, of the river and its wellbeing–all of this [is] the integral community in which we live. ~ Thomas Berry
We can do nothing and keep revolving, remaining perfect fodder for governments, corporations and empires, or…
we can connect with Her and begin to evolve into what we are meant to be…part of Her.
