“See, we are power.
They deal in violence and repression,
we are power.
We are a part of the natural world.
All of the things in the natural world
are a natural part of the creation
and feed off the energy of our sacred mother, Earth.
We are power.
But they have separated us
from our spiritual connection to the Earth,
so people feel powerless.
We look at the oppressor and we look at the enemy
because they have the most guns
and the most lies and the most money.
People start to feel powerless.
We are power, we are a natural part of the creation,
we were put here on the sacred mother Earth to serve a purpose.
And somewhere in the history of people
we’re forgetting what the purpose is.
The purpose is to honor the earth,
the purpose is to protect the earth,
the purpose is to live in balance with the earth,
the earth is our mother.
And we will never free ourselves as human people,
we will never free ourselves as sexual people,
we will never free ourselves
until we address the issue of how we live
in balance with the Earth.
Because all our resistance and all of our struggle is hollow,
it’s false, it’s another one of the oppressor’s hypocrisies.
If we do not look out for the welfare of the Earth first,
because I don’t care who it is,
any child who turns on their mother
is living in a terrible, terrible confusion.
The Earth is our mother, we must take care of the Earth.”
“It is possible to understand the world from studying a leaf. You can comprehend the laws of aerodynamics, mathematics, poetry, and biology through the complex beauty of such a perfect structure. It’s also possible to travel the whole globe and learn nothing.”

Earth teach me caring
as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage
as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation
as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom
as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance
as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal
as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.
