Paying reverence to all forms of creation,
Honoring everything affects every person, place, thing or situation,
That’s how our ancestors lived,
The sacredness of every thing and being is what they believed.
Modern man lives very stressful lives,
We spend time in Nature to increase our vibes,
Being in Nature is quite healing indeed,
But to truly heal, watch your every word, thought and deed.
The earth and its inhabitants is a total living system,
Humans comprise a small percentage of this system,
Yet our influence and effect on Nature is so much larger in proportion,
See the sorry state of Nature resulting from our irresponsible action.
Something clearly isn’t right;
The system is out of balance, when are we going to see the light?
And balance is what Nature has to offer,
A reflection of our world – both inner and outer.
Our ancestors paid reverence to all forms of creation,
Yet look at us now, in the midst of conflict and separation,
Let’s learn from how our ancestors lived,
In the sacredness of one and all they believed.
Our ancestors depended on each other,
They counted on themselves and every tribal member,
They depended on everything and everyone around them,
They depended on the entire living system.
And as we join in the celebration of Earth Day,
May we pay reverence to her today and every other day,
May we draw inspiration from our ancestors back in the day,
When they lived harmoniously with Nature, how can it be any other way?
