” We are part of the earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters; the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man — all belong to the same family.”
~ Chief Seattle
I have long believed the sentiment illustrated above by Chief Seattle… To me, this only seems natural; to understand and feel in the heart that all of nature’s things are sacred treasures, though these are often passed by without a second glance, or any feeling of connection.
We live within a sphere of unity, the very foundation of life begins in this place, from one we came, and to one we shall return. This journey to the remembrance of soul, of the true realization of creation and birth lives within all hearts. It is our duty to find this path and follow it for eternity.
I remember a line from a popular song: “And all your money, won’t another minute buy.” This line from the band Kansas does echo in the ears of many… We spend an awful amount of time pursuing fruitless gains of material wealth, acquiring possessions that will inevitably break or need to be replaced over and over again. Yet, this is the way of the world. We cannot buy more time, nor do we know the hour of expiration. Once we stop and realize that our time here is so short, shorter even for the man who can recall his entire life in a simple thought, we may then understand the true meaning of why the journey is the goal.
To love all that exists should be the ideal. To love the soul, the neighbor, the brother, the father and the mother, the Earth and all its creatures and the divine. One must be present in his ideal. The ideal, this loving unity, should never be for selfish gain or for the promise of a heavenly prize or for self-aggrandizement, but simply for the essence of life, and for future generations. Love knows no bounds, and needs no motivation. It need only exist to heal.
Tonight, under the blue moon, simply love the sky and all it’s brightness illuminated by the moonlight. Give thanks for all you see, feel, taste and touch. Give praise for having the ability to recognize love and light. Be present in the awareness that life is a great sphere of unity, and, once realized, will spark fire into the hearts of all God’s children…

We never know how much time we have left, sometimes I treat my days as if they were my last. I sure change my tune. We can’t make time, buy time or borrow time. Wish we could. Nice post, well-written. Thank you.
So very true.. and Thank you!
“I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.” – D. H. Lawrence

A great uniting perspective about ourselves and the world around us…
I actually used the quote that you shared in my book. Loved your story.
Thank you. I spent yesterday out in the woods, seeing, feeling, being one with nature. I feel enriched.
this bit of words…speaks straight to my heart. i am on a journey .. one that has been calling me quietly in whispers for far too long. I am reconnecting with the Great Mother, and finding my way through the gifts of creation. Specifically, the animals but also the trees. I have long compared myself and my ‘abilities’ or lack thereof, with those around me. People very close to me can see, hear, feel Spirit, Energy..good and bad. My ability to feel is small in comparison but here is where the comparing ends. I am finding my own way..and the animals guide me as they have in years past. i just stopped listening for awhile. It thrills me that they embrace me again so easily , as though i never left,
warm hugs to you
Such utter thankfulness I am for the life on this earth right now, because of your post!
I love Chief Seattle. His speech in 1854 touches on death in such a way that it always makes me cry when I read that part! Thank you for following my blog, and I look forward to reading more of your writing. You are also a very talented artist-will give you a follow on IG! Cheers ❤
Awe thank you! And you’re welcome.. I appreciate the follow!
