Gaia is the classical Greek name for the Earth, as well as the name used by James Lovelock & Lynn Margulis to compare the Earth to a living system.
I have started a group called Eco Shamanism. Anyone who shares my concern for the earth's environment in a spiritual way is welcome to join this club. It is my wish that we together can create a small place in here to share thoughts and ideas about the environment and our spiritual connection with it. A second group I have started is the Global Alliance to Ban GMOs, please also consider joining this group. We work towards a GMO free world. GMOs truly are a threat to our environment, health and biodiversity.
Av Piet Hein:«Pessimistene er de reneste tåper, de tror på det motsatte av hva de håper. Nei, de optimister som livet beror på, er de som håper på noe de tror på.» And here is another grook by Hein, this one in English:
A SMALL THINGS AND GREAT
He that lets
the small things bind him
leaves the great
undone behind him.
