Scully

"Your heart is a place in which only truth can reside. Whenever you speak to another being, a simultaneous conversation takes place in the heart dimension. It is a conversation of truth, and this, from the perspective of your soul, is what truly matters."

Rogue River Journal

"Work that can't be exported and few Euro-Americans are willing to do - picking crops, cleaning our homes and offices, bussing and washing dishes in restaurants, tending our gardens, even raising our children - is performed by poor immigrants, many of them here illegally. We depend on these workers even as we decry their presence, while scarcely slapping the wrists of the many employers who illegally hire and often exploit them. More than a fourth of the food on American tables is raised in the Great Central Valley of California, and almost all of it is cultivated and picked by Mexican-Americans, Mexicans, other Latinos, and Filipinos. We get the fruits and vegetables; they get the meager wages and stooped backs, they breathe and absorb the pesticides of which we consume only traces, and they get the cancer." John Daniel

Ernest Holmes

"The furtherance of evolution depends upon our ability to sense a unity with Nature and her forces. When the knowlege of this unity comes alike to all, the tread of armies will cease and the bugle call will echo the soft notes of brotherly love."

My Henry

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."

Great Mother

Oh, Great Mother
Nourish Me In
Your Embrace

Lead Me To Your Waters
So That I May
Drink The Eternal
Love

Your Blessings Are from
A Well
That Has No End

The Depths Of Your
Love Cannot
Be Reached

We Are All Broken
And Imperfect Beings

We All Need
People To Help Us
Fill
Our Empty Spaces

The Most Beautiful
Gift Is To Not
Only Have Your
Darkness Filled
With Light

But, To Extend
The Brilliance Of
Our Magnificent Flame

And To Help Others
See The Sun.
