Like water, be gentle and strong. Be gentle enough to follow the natural paths of the earth, but strong enough to rise up and reshape the world.
~ Brenda Peterson
"if the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you,
if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand,
rejoice, for your soul is alive"

Oh Great Spirit, bring to our brothers the wisdom of Nature and the knowledge that if her laws are obeyed this land will again flourish and grasses and trees will grow as before.
Guide those that through their councils seek to spread the wisdom of their leaders to all people.
Heal the raw wounds of the Earth and restore to our soul the richness which strengthens menís bodies and makes them wise in their councils.
Bring to all the knowledge that great cities live only through the bounty of the good earth beyond their paved streets and towers of stone and steel.
My goal in life is to be able to look back at my journey and feel content. To know I accomplished all that I could and satisfied my purpose in this world.
I pray that I will always fight for what I believe in with determination and passion. I pray that I will always strive to add to what I know, keep an open mind, stay grounded in the things that really matter, and live as if every minute of everyday is a gift.
All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
