So toll; sollten alle bewussten Menschen und besonders jene, die in der Politik tätig sind, beherzigen (bei einer e-mail-Protestaktion habe ich es schon mitgeschickt...)
      Declaration oft he four sacred things
      The earth is a living, conscious being. In company with cultures of many different times and places,
      we name these things as sacred: air, fire, water, and earth.
      Wheter we see them as the breath, energy, blood, and body oft he Mother, or as the blessed gifts of a Creator,
      or as symbols of the interconnected systems that sustain life, we know that nothing can live without them.
      To call these things sacred is to say that they have a value beyond their usefulness for human ends,
      that they themselves become the standards by which our acts, our economics, our laws, and our puposes must be judged.
      No one has the right to appropriate them or profit from them at the expense of others.
      Any government that fails to protect them forfeits ist legitimacy.All people, all living things, are part oft he earth life, and so are sacred.
      No one of us stands higher or lower than any other. Only justice can assure balance:only ecological balance can sustain freedom.
      Only in freedom can that fifth sacred thing we call spirit flourish in its full diversity.
      To honor the sacred is to create conditions in which nourishment, sustenance, habitat, knowledge, freedom, and beauty can thrive.
      To honor the sacred ist o make love possible.To this we dedicat our cuiosity, our will, our courage, our silences, and our voices.To this we dedicate our lives.
