Rediscovering What Has Always Been There !

"When will we ever begin to understand the meaning of the soil underneath our feet?
From a tiny grain of sand to the largest mountain, everything is sacred.

Our living saints are the evergreen trees. We have no buildings or steeples. 
The landscape and lakes are our churches and cathedrals. These are our sacred buildings.

Yesterday and tomorrow exist forever upon our mother, the earth."

"When the last red man shall have become a myth among the white men, 
when your children's children think themselves alone in the field, 
upon the highway or in the silence of pathless woods, 
we and our ancestors will be there standing among them.

We have lived upon this land from days beyond history's records,
far past any living memory, deep into the time of legends."

"Not to be aware of the past is to be eternally a child,
but for those of us who forget the past will be condemned to repeat it.

We are more than the sum of all our knowledge, 
we are the products of our imagination.

Mankind 'IS' the product of his ancestors."

"In the world of the powerful there is no space for anyone but 
themselves and their servants. In our world everyone has a place.

Only those who give up their history are consigned to oblivion.

On the vacant ground of today, there will grow a flower of tomorrow."

"I prefer my journeys into the natural gardens
where the voice of the Great Spirit is heard in the twittering of birds,
the rippling of mighty brooks, and the sweet fragrance of flowers.

If this be Paganism, then I am honored to be called a Pagan."
