"Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world."

"The structure of the world itself, it functions on natural law, and the natural law is a powerful regenerative process. Its a process of regeneration that continues and grows and is endless. Its absolutely endless if everyone agrees to the law and follows the law. But if you challenge the law, and you think you are going to change the law, then you are bound to failure…"

~ John Trudell, Native American activist

"The fundamental illusion that modern humans need to wake up from now is the idea that we are somehow separate from Nature. We are not separate, we are Nature herself, in human form. We are a part of a greater Earth community, children of this living planet. Once this understanding becomes "common sense" for high technology cultures and civilizations, humanity will be able to solve the problems we've created, by believing we were somehow superior to other species and separate from our Mother, the Earth."

“We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.”

"When we speak of Nature it is wrong to forget that we are ourselves a part of Nature. We ought to view ourselves with the same curiosity and openness with which we study a tree, the sky or a thought, because we too are linked to the entire Universe."

~ Henri Matisse

"We are life. We are nature. We are Universe. Self-reflexive consciousness allows us different perspectives on this ever-transforming and evolving whole we participate in — this all that we are reflections of. We bring forth a world together, as embodied manifestations of the universe co-creating the world through how we participate and what we pay attention to and care about."

~ Daniel Christian Wahl

"You are part of the universe; you are made of stars. When you look at your loved one, you see that he is also made of stars and carries eternity inside...

We cannot take anything out of anything else. We are the mountains and rivers; we are the sun and stars. Everything inter-is.

This is what the physicist David Bohm called “the implicate order.” At first we see only “the explicate order,” but as soon as we realize that things do not exist outside one another, we touch the deepest level of the cosmic.

We realize that we cannot take the water out of the wave. And we cannot take the wave out of the water. Just as the wave is the water itself, we are the ultimate.

If we want to touch the ultimate, we have to look within our own body and not outside. Contemplating deeply the body from within, we can touch reality in itself.

If your mindfulness and concentration are deep as you practice walking meditation in nature, or as you contemplate a beautiful sunset or your own human body, you can touch the true nature of the cosmos."

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Beautiful sayings, and images, as well!

I would add; "even if imperfectly"

That is so true, Savlove, whether we do, or we do not care!

If more people cared, there would be no need for all of it, but unfortunately, that is not the case!

Is a great job you are doing!

Sending love to the group ~ and taking in the distinction between ecological consciousness - athe poetry and philosophy of here - and environmental work. Because that's what I do much of the time - lobbying and following activists. It's not all political, but the victories and defeats most on the radar are about legislation, environmental impact statements, and administrating rules intended to protect species. How government responds to disasters and could prevent them. It goes on and on - yet the nature of nature is what is in our hearts...this is where it starts.
