"The Earth is Our Mother"

Posted by

"The earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.

Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. We did not weave the web of life, we are merely strands in it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves." ~ Chief Seattle

And what a beautiful mother she is. The quote from Chief Seattle is perfect. If only more of us could clear our eyes & minds to see her.
