Grandfather, Great Spirit you have been always,

And before you nothing has been.

There is no one to pray to but you.

The star nations all over the heavens are yours,

And yours are the grasses of the earth.

Grandfather, Great Spirit, fill us with the light.

Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that live.

Help us, for without you we are nothing.

Black Elk (1863-1950)
Holy man of the Oglala Lakota

________________

The Creation babbles to us,
like a child which cannot articulate
what it wants to say; for it is struggling
to utter the one Word, the Name...of God.

St. John of the Cross
(1542-1591)
Spanish mystic, Carmelite friar

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure
hidden in a field, which a man found
and covered up; then in his joy he
goes and sells all that he has
and buys that field.

Matthew 13: 44
Holy Bible, Revised Standard Edition

_________


All life's forms are akin, yet none is like to
another: they are a Choir that makes God's
hidden art manifest.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832)
German poet, novelist, humanist and scientist


_____________

Be like a tree -- strong, shady, silently productive,
living only for others, letting others thrive on you,
and yet keeping the environs clean.


Swami Atmananda (1883-1959)
Hindu guru

 


And now the Last Word:


The first flower that blossomed on Earth
was an invitation to the unborn song.


Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)
Bengali, poet, artist, novelist, composer
