"Our hopes and our dreams go before us,
Our longing to heal, to be whole,
Together we birth a new moment,
The Great Work of hands, heart and soul."
— Diane Forrest, "We Are One"

"Master of the Universe, grant me the ability to be alone:
May it be my custom to go outdoors each day, among the trees and grasses, among all
growing things, there to be alone and enter into prayer.
There may I express all that is in my heart, talking with You, to Whom I belong.
And may all grasses, trees and plants awake at my coming.
Send the power of their life into my prayer, making whole my heart and my speech
through the life and spirit of growing things."
— Rabbi Nachman

"This is the Earth, healed again, growing green and blue. I want you to remember this exactly as it is, and then go and tell the people that if enough of us hold this image in their minds, we can heal the Earth and make it like it was a long time ago."
— Grandfather Rolling Thunder

The lands around my dwelling
Are more beautiful
From the day
When it is given to me to see
Faces I have never seen before.
All is more beautiful,
All is more beautiful,
And life is thankfulness.
These guests of mine
Make my house grand."
— Eskimo blessing

"May we turn inwards and stumble upon our true roots
In the intertwining biology of this exquisite planet.
May nourishment and power pulse through these roots,
And fierce determination continue the billion-year dance."
— John Seed

"Apprehend God in all things,
for God is in all things.
Every single creature is full of God
and is a book about God.
Every creature is a word of God.
If I spent enough time with the tiniest creature —
even a caterpillar —
I would never have to prepare a sermon. So full of God
is every creature."
— Meister Eckhart
