Climate Change -Gratitude for Air, Closing
With this newsletter, we close our focus on Air and Climate Change, with dedication and commitment to do all we can to bring balance to the great breath of our Earth Mother. Through looking at the issues involved in Climate Change, we come to understand, more and more, the interrelatedness of all things and the implications of all our actions. We offer gratitude for clear, wild, refreshing Air, the green beings who give us breath and all those spirit forces who join together to sustain Life. “Blessed be the Wind:
…with the wind, Earth comes truly alive. Winds provide the circulatory and nervous systems of the planet, sharing out energy and information, distributing both warmth and awareness, making something out of nothing…
We are the fruits of the wind—and have been seeded, irrigated, and cultivated by it craft.”
(Lyall Watson in Earth Prayers, ed. by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon. San Fransisco 1991 p.138)
“Listen to the air.
You can hear it, feel it,
smell, it taste it.
Woniya wakan, the holy air,
which renews all by its breath.”
(John Lame Deer, in Earth Prayers, ed. by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon, San Fransisco, 1991 p. 147)
