We have forgotten who we are.
We have alienated ourselves from the unfolding of the cosmos
We have become estranged from the movements of the Earth
We have turned our backs on the cycles of life.
We have forgotten who we are.
We have sought only our own security
We have exploited simply for our own ends
We have distorted our knowledge
We have abused our power.
We have forgotten who we are.
Now the land is barren
And the waters are poisoned
And the air is polluted.
We have forgotten who we are.
Now the forests are dying
And the creatures are disappearing
And humans are despairing.
We have forgotten who we are.
We ask forgiveness
We ask for the gift of remembering
We ask for the strength to change.
We have forgotten who we are.



My Truth
I aspire not to an enlightened afterlife,
Or to ascend to be one with God,
Nor to live in
Paradise
with Allah.
No. I wish to live life contented,
At one with the earth and kin to the animals,
To impart my knowledge and experience to younger minds,
And to walk my path in peace and with fulfillment,
Then to die:
My body, the earth;
My mind, the earth.
My spirit, the earth;
Let my remnants nourish it, to nourish others,
So they may live and die so others may live...
... and the Wheel turns evermore...

Yep! Here is my truth. Why am I on this Earth? No big reason, no huge purpose... just my truth!

Pagan Pledge of Allegiance
I Pledge Allegiance,
to the Earth,
And all the Creatures which inhabit it,
And to the Oceans,
Which Give us Life
One Planet, under sky, inter-dependent
With Energy, and sustenance for all.

My Philosophy Live each day to the fullest - for one day it shall be your last!
What Gives Me Hope Watching the sun rise to greet a new day and the challenges that come with it - over and over again - relentless in it's continuity!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Stop and listen to what the real issues are - By taking care of the environment we live in - we can all live in peace and harmony with our natural environment.
What/who changed my life and why The terror and aftermath of 9/11 with as many losses as one can bear - I left the big Apple with all it's greed and got back in touch with my passion - nature! To lose so much and gain one's self is priceless.

Quotation To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
