“Mother Earth is in trouble, and thus all of us who are her children. Our Earth walk is dangerously unbalanced, and this must be corrected quickly…”
“A balancing must take place in which the feminine and masculine energies within each of us, as within all things, can harmonize.
“In our Native way, we are not fully human until we balance these two energies; we cannot make full use of ourselves and our creative gifts until we balance yin and yang, right and left brain, the active and the receptive.
“To be fully human is what is being required of us now on this Earth. This means that more emphasis needs to be placed on… relationship rather than on separation; on power in flow with greater forces rather than on personal dominion over others; on the dark of winter’s earthy germination as well as the rapid growth of summer days; on nurturing rather than destroying and on a deep and sacred ecology that deals respectfully and harmoniously with All Our Relations rathe than with isolated issues.”
