so let us, in walking gently on the Earth, leave behind a simple legacy-that we loved the earth and were warriors, mystic warriors who had the courage to try to save it

the Sioux say in ceremony "mitakuye oyasin" which means "we are related to all things"...

the more knowledge we acquire, the more mystery we find...a human being is a part of the whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. he experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest-a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. this delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security
