"The Earth community as a whole is our starting place ~ our womb, our home." ~ Brian Swimme

From the beginning of time, the philosophies of people on this Earth focused on and related to the creation and order of the Universe. And, there was a sacred relationship between humans and the natural world. And, so they lived in harmony with animals, plants, and the elements around them. And, each peoples seasonal celebrations were an interpretation of where they were located on this Earth. People from different locations on the globe are not a threat to each other in the greater understanding of the Universe. They have simply told their stories about the cycles and rhythms of life from where they stand. There is so much to learn from each other and nature.

"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." ~ T. S. Eliot
