Earth

Chinese charater for the planet earth

once upon a time

dust in the wind

Earthlike planets are extremely rare.
Everything we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves.

outer space
earth water air


Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.
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.
Ute Prayer


the earth is alive

"To protect the Earth is to protect ourselves.
Everything is linked to everything else.
To save the our planet is to save ourselves,
our children and grandchildren."
- Thich Nhat Hanh

"What we now need is real leadership so that future generations
will enjoy the benefits of our wisdom, empathy and foresight,
instead of having to manage the consequences
of our selfish ravaging of the Earth."
- Daniel Brezenoff


inscription

"May the inhabitants of earth become one in their hearts
Unite their plans and designs with the dwellers in heaven!
All separation and polytheism and dualism will vanish
For there is only unity in real existence!" - Rumi

"Evil does not spring from the soil,
and trouble does not sprout from the Earth." - Job 5:6

"Upon what does the Earth stand?
Upon the pillars.
(The sages say it stands upon twelve pillars.)
The pillars stand upon the waters;
the waters upon the mountains;
the mountains upon the wind;
the wind upon the storm;
the storm is suspended upon the strength of the Holy One,
blessed be He, as it is written."
- Babylonian Talmud, Tract Hagiga, Chapter II
translated by Michael Levi Rodkinson


dust of our ancestors bones

"Children who never spend significant, unstructured time outdoors in natural settings can hardly be expected to grow into adults who will care enough to fight to protect the Earth."
- Crista Worthy


"We live in a cooperative biological world which possess many features of life, most notably homeostatic regulation of temperature, gases, salinity, and other variables. Each species contributes some way to the metabolism and homeostasis of the planet. Coral creates lagoons that help remove salt from the ocean, which would otherwise double in salinity in just 60 million years. Photosynthesizing algae and rainforests produce the oxygen that sustains animal life, while other mechanisms prevent oxygen levels from going too high and sparking devastating planet-wide forest fires. Bacteria accelerate rock weathering to bring carbon out of the atmosphere, while marine animals eventually turn that carbon into shells ultimately sequestered on the ocean floor. And something, some combination of organic and inorganic processes, has kept earth's surface temperature stable as the sun's apparent brightness has increased by 30 or 40 percent over three billion years." - Charles Eisenstein


Earth from the Moon


"From the moon, the Earth is so small and so fragile, and such a precious little spot in that beautiful, that you can block it out with your thumb. Then you realize that on that spot, that little blue and white thing, is everything that means anything to you - all of history and music and poetry and art and death and birth and love, tears, joy, games, all of it right there on that little spot that you can cover with your thumb. And you realize from that perspective that you've changed forever, that there is something new there, that the relationship is no longer what it was." - Rusty Schweickart

"When I was the last man to walk on the moon in December 1972, I stood in the blue darkness and looked in awe at the Earth from the lunar surface. What I saw was almost too beautiful to grasp. There was too much logic, too much purpose - it was just too beautiful to have happened by accident. It doesn't matter how you choose to worship God ... God has to exist to have created what I was privileged to see." - Gene Cernan
"On the return trip home, gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and the planet from which I had come, I suddenly experienced the beautiful as intelligent, loving, harmonious." - Edgar Mitchell

"Our problems are not competition with China for control of outer space; our problems are right here before us on Earth: overpopulation, global warming, poisoning of our biosphere, land erosion - loss of topsoil - desertification, extinction of species, disposal of nuclear and toxic wastes, competition for natural resources and poverty. What good is a colony out in space when our mothership is in distress?" - Alton L. Safford

"The latest reports clearly place a moral choice before humanity: What do we value most, the Earth we live on or "prosperity"? What good is prosperity in the face of environmental degradation?" - Mary Clumeck


Earth is defined as:

The substance of the human body; clay.

The mothership of the species homo sapiens.

The realm or abode of mortal existence; the temporal world; reality.

The globe or planet which we inhabit; the world, in distinction from the sun, moon, or stars.

The solid materials which make up the globe, in distinction from the air or water; the dry land.

Worldly things, as opposed to spiritual things; the pursuits, interests, and allurements of this life..

The softer inorganic matter composing part of the surface of the planet, in distinction from the firm rock; soil of all kinds, including gravel, clay, loam, and the like; sometimes, soil favorable to the growth of plants; the visible surface of the globe; the ground; as, loose earth; rich earth.

The third planet from the sun, having a sidereal period of revolution about the sun of 365.26 days at a mean distance of approximately 149 million kilometers (92.96 million miles), an axial rotation period of 23 hours 56.07 minutes, an diameter of 12,756 kilometers (7,923 miles) at the equator.


Once upon a time there was an unique planet.

On this unique planet arose a species that learned the ability to "conquer" nature - or so they thought.

As this particular animal obliterated the ecosystems that had evolved over the millennium it became harder and harder to enjoy life.

So most of the animals chose to escape the reality that they had manufactured.

Some fantasized a reality in which the forces of good fought the forces of evil.

Some fantasized a reality in which only they themselves mattered.

A very small number - Siddhartha Gautama, Jesus, Muhammad ibn ‘Abdulla-h and Bahá'u'lláh included, fantasized a reality in which the animals learned to live in peace with nature.

The end of the story has not yet been written.

Will the animals learn to live in peace or will they follow their uncivilized animal instincts and return the small planet to a pre-civilization state?

Stay tuned to reality to find out.

"There is a deep affinity between the Earth and the selfless human being." - Karen Armstrong


earth music

Smile O voluptuous cool-breath'd Earth!

Earth of the slumbering and liquid trees!

Earth of departed sunset - Earth of the mountains misty-topt!

Earth of the vitreous pour of the full moon just tinged with blue!

Earth of shine and dark mottling the tide of the river!

Earth of the limpid gray of clouds brighter and clearer for my sake!

Walt Whitman




"Imagine that you are sitting on the ground, with your bare bottom touching the earth. Since you are not wearing a scarf or hat, you are also exposed to heaven above. You are sandwiched between heaven and earth: a naked man or woman. Sitting between heaven and earth.

Earth is always earth. The earth will let anyone sit on it, and earth never gives way. It never lets you go - you don't drop off this earth and go flying through outer space.

Likewise, sky is always sky; heaven is always above you. Whether it is snowing or raining or the sun is shining, whether it is daytime or nighttime, the sky is always there. In that sense, we know that heaven and earth are trustworthy." - Chogyam Trungpa


I close my eyes,
only for a moment,
and the moment's gone

All my dreams,
pass before my eyes,
a curiosity

Dust in the wind,
all they are is dust in the wind.

Same old song,
just a drop of water in an endless sea

All we do,
crumbles to the ground,
though we refuse to see


Dust in the wind,
all we are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on,
nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky

It slips away,
and all your money won't another minute buy.

Dust in the wind,
all we are is dust in the wind

Dust in the wind,
everything is dust in the wind.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.



This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.
