Food Plants we harvest from The Garden. Since the beginning of time, the
grains, vegetables, beans, and berries have helped the people survive. Many
other living things draw strength from them, too. We gather all the Plant Foods
together as one and send them a greeting of thanks." - Haudenosaunee
The fields are always
wet with rain
a summer shower
When I saw
Standin' in The Garden
In The Garden
Wet with Rain
You wiped the
teardrops from your eye in sorrow
And we watched the petals fall down to the
And as I sat beside you I felt the
Great sadness that day
In The Garden
And then one day
you came back home
You were a creature all in rapture
You had the
Key to your Soul
And you did open
That day you came back
The olden summer breeze was blowin' gainst your face
The Light of God was shinin' on
your countenance divine
And you were a violet colour as you
your father and your mother
The summer breeze was blowin' on your face
violet you treasure your summery words
And as the shiver from my neck down
to my spine
Ignited me in daylight and nature in
went into a trance
childlike vision became so fine
And we heard the bells within the
We loved so much
And felt the presence of the youth of eternal
In The Garden
And as it touched your cheeks so lightly
Born again you were and
And we touched each other lightly
we felt the presence of the Christ
within our Hearts
In the garden
And I turned to you and I
No guru, no method, no teacher
Just you and I and Nature
And the Father in The Garden
No guru, no method, no teacher
Just you and I and
And the Father and the
Son and the Holy Spirit

Just you and I and

Garden, wet with rain
No guru, no method, no teacher
Just you and

"Once upon a time, when the science
and art of gardening was not yet well established among men, there was a
In addition to knowing all the qualities of plants, their nutritious, medicinal
and aesthetic values, he had been granted a knowledge of the
Herb of Longevity, and he lived for
many hundreds of years.
In successive generations, he visited gardens
and cultivated places throughout the World. In one place he planted a wonderful
garden, and instructed the people in its upkeep and even in the
theory of gardening. But, becoming
accustomed to seeing some of the plants come up and flower every year, they
soon forgot that others had to have their seeds collected, that some were
propagated from cuttings that some needed extra watering, and so on. The result
was that the garden eventually became wild, and people started to regard this
as the best garden there could be.
After giving these people many
chances to learn, the Master Gardener expelled
them and recruited another whole band of workers. He warned them that if they
did not keep the garden in order, and study his methods, they would suffer for
it. They, in turn, forgot - and, since they were lazy, tended only those fruits
and flowers which were easily reared and allowed the others to die.
Some of the first trainees came back to them from time to time, saying:
'You should do this and that, but they drove them away, shouting: 'You are the
ones who are departing from Truth in this
He made other gardens wherever he
could, and yet none was ever perfect except the one which he himself tended
with his chief assistants. As it became known that there were many gardens and
even many methods of gardening people from one garden would visit those of
another, to approve, to criticize, or to argue.
Books were written,
assemblies of gardeners were
held, gardeners arranged themselves in grades according to what they thought to
be the right order of precedence. As is the way of men the difficulty of the
gardeners remains that they are too easily attracted by the superficial. They
say: 'I like this flower,'and they want everyone else to like it as well. It
may, in spite of its attraction or abundance, be a weed which is choking other
plants which could provide medicines or food which the people and the garden
need for their sustenance and permanency.
Among these gardeners are
those who prefer plants of one single color. These they may describe as 'good'. There are others who will only tend the plants,
while refusing to care about the paths or the gates, or even the fences. When,
it length, the ancient gardener died, he left as his endowment the whole
knowledge of gardening, distributing it among the people who would understand
in accordance with their capacities.
Science as well as the
Art of gardening remained as a scattered heritage.
People who are brought up in one garden
or another generally have been so powerfully instructed as to the benefits or
disadvantages of how the inhabitants see things that
they are almost incapable -
though they make the effort - of realizing that they have to return to the
concept of 'garden'. At the best they generally only accept, reject, suspend
judgement or look for what they imagine are the

the abundance of fake
gardens that when they hear of real ones people say: 'Oh, yes.
You are talking about a garden
such as we imagine we already have.'
What they have and what they
imagine are both defective.
The Real Experts, who
cannot reason with the fake gardeners,
associate for the most part among themselves, putting into this or that garden
something from the total stock which will enable it to maintain its vitality to
some extent. They are often forced to
masquerade, because the people who want to learn from them seldom know
about the fact of gardening as an art or science underlying everything that
they have heard before. So they ask questions like : 'How can I get a more
beautiful flower on these onions.'

Golden Time Druid may work with them because true gardens can sometimes be
brought into being, for the benefit of all mankind. They do not last long, but
it is only through them that the knowledge can be truly learnt and people can
come to see what a garden really is."

gardens and fields, and then eat

edge of the field or just outside my garden." - Tim

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

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

intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The

behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
