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.
