The Circle of Life

Postby lliam » Wed Sep 10, 2003 1:38 pm

Sorry guys, I'm in one of my, 'I love this planet' moods.

-----------------
The Circle of Life.
----------------------

Man has a poor understanding of life. He mistakes knowledge for wisdom. He tries to unveil the holy secrets of our Father, the Great Spirit. He attempts to impose his laws and ways on Mother Earth.

Even though he himself is part of Nature, he chooses to disregard and ignore for the sake of his own immediate gain.
But the laws of Nature are far stronger than those of Mankind.

Man must awake at last, and learn to understand how little time there remain before he will become the cause of His own downfall. And He has so much to learn. To learn to see with his heart.

He must learn to respect Mother Earth, - She who has given life to everything: To our brothers and sisters, the Animals, and the Plants, to the Rivers, the Lakes, the Oceans and the Winds.

He must realize that this planet does not belong to Him, but that he has to take care for and maintain the delicate balance of Nature for the sake of the well being of our children and of all future generations.

It’s the duty of Man to preserve the Earth and the creation of the Great Spirit. Mankind being but a grain of sand in the Holy Circle Which encloses all of life.

Lliam,

Beautiful sentiment. This is very reminiscent of the Native American belief that one cannot own a tract of land, but is merely the custodian of it while residing on Mother Earth.

Thanks for sharing.

*Thank's Judy. I can't explain it but, every now and then I get this, not, depression but, a sort of sorrow, and these feelings just flood out.

*Now today for example the 9/11 anniversary has been on my mind most of the time.

*If I live to be 2,000 I'll never forget that day, Never.

*I'm going away tomorrow for ten days, just up the north west coast of England, a place called, Blackpool in the county of Lancashire.

*my sister lives 4 miles north of Blackpool, a place called Cleveleys so I'll visit her while I'm up there.

*Oh did I mention I was taking my wife with me :)
