A Quote by Black Elk on indian, circle, sky, earth, wind, stars, birds, seasons, life, and human power

You have noticed that everything as Indian does
is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round..... The Sky is round, and I have heard
that the earth is round like a ball, and so are
all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for
theirs is the same religion as ours....

Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from
childhood to childhood, and so it is in
everything where power moves.

A Quote by David Spangler on gaia, spirituality, and earth

We cannot assume the sacredness nor spiritual livingness of the earth or accept it as a new ideology or as a sentimentally pleasing idea. We must experience that life and sacredness, if it is there, in relationship to our own and to that ultimate mystery we call God. We must experience it in our lives, in our practice, in the flesh of our cultural creativity. We must allow it to shape us, as great spiritual ideas have always shaped those who entertain them, and not expect that we can simply use the image of Gaia to meet emotional, religious, political, or even commercial needs without allowing it to transform us in unexpected and radical ways. The spirituality of the earth is more than a slogan. It is an invitation to initiation, to the death of what we have been and the birth of something new.

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on earth and people

Look again at that dot.  That's here.  That's home.  That's us.  On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.  The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

A Quote by J. E. Lovelock on gaia, earth, animal, mistake, and extinct

We are the intelligent elite among animal life on earth and whatever our mistakes, [Earth] needs us. This may seem an odd statement after all that I have said about the way 20th century humans became almost a planetary disease organism. But it has taken [Earth] 2.5 billion years to evolve an animal that can think and communicate its thoughts. If we become extinct she has little chance of evolving another.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on reality, harmony, happiness, earth, love, awakening, spirit, soul, and joy

The essence of reality is that if we have the courage to change ours will be a reservoir of spiritual experiences that clothe our souls with flowers of love and gratitude. Mother Earth and Father Sky embrace the positive aspects of the self thereby illuminating a path of celestial awakening. If you accept love as a way of life you will cultivate joy and and create a nurturing environment of happiness and harmony.
