Hail You Mighty Ones
Awaken to the abundance of the joy of the planet. The spellbinding intricacies of creative wonder. The minutest detail of life and survival. The tiniest speck of miraculous life forms. Here in the midst of the chaos of the galaxy is the genius of the planet Earth.
Wondrous great planet of divine creation, your placement in this galaxy is no accident.
In hunger we till the soil and in gratitude we harvest the crop. In relaxation we bask in the warmth of the sun and in recreation we explore the fabulous landscape that we love so dearly.. Each race, chosen for the place where they reside.
The races are specialists, living in natural adaptation to the world they live in. Natural coloration, natural aptitude, natural curiosity and connection to their land. The races of people are part of the natural world and belong to the ecology of the planet. The human is as connected to bio-diversity as the plants and animals in their ecosystem are. All in balance, protect it all. Protect the natural world, the natural balance of life and living. Everything in the ecosystem is precious. Everything is a gift from the Earth. Life on the planet is the life of the planet. The planet lives through it’s creation of living life forms. The trees and plant life breathe for us and through photosynthesis create oxygen. Their survival in all species is imperative.
The great good Earth creates it’s lifeforms with interconnectivity in its ecosystems, all interrelated and created for its own purpose. The races of humans dwell in their land for their own special contributions to that place. Their civilizations are unique and brilliant, their adaptation to the land is remarkable. The animal life that dwells in these places all over the world, are specially adapted to these environments as well. Unique people in unique lands sharing with the plant and animal species of these places. All are specialists in this environmental ecosystem. Lands set aside for human habitation, lands set aside for wildlife preservation. Balance.
The world is for all of us. Fabulous mankind, with their ingenuity and intelligence. Fabulous wilderness with its magical array of landscape, wildlife and majestic beauty. The sound of the wild, the call to travel those untamed paths. The good fortune of a photograph of the wild inhabitants of special, protected places. The good fortune of the health of the people, who choose to live a life of earthly splendor, marvelling at the fabulous creativity of the planet.
The healing Earth, with it’s wide array of lifeforms, tantalizing us with curious creatures and landscapes. Knowledge and education seep into our minds as we gather information about our area. The teaching planet, reminding us to be mindful of the soft and delicate, the large and aggressive, the cold and the heat. Nurture and care, oh great human. This paradise in our galaxy is changing. This paradise needs protection. This fabulous great Earth is becoming paradise lost. Fragments are vanishing. Entire ecosystems are dying. One day for this planet? How many days to ignore it. Earth Day is every day.
Still the planet spins it’s mysterious web of life with creativity and abundance. It spreads it’s awesome wonder for all of us to dwell in and marvel at. It creates it’s species and environments with specialization and adaptation. It creates it’s species in all environments from mountaintops to prairie, dessert to ocean. Plants and animals, some bountiful, some rare, spreading all over the planet in ecological harmony.
The joy of discovery, the thrill of a lifetime. To capture this rare moment in time. A bird is calling to it’s mate, a turtle has laid her eggs on the shore, the coyote pups emerge from their den. The animals smile and sing. This is for all of us. This is the creativity of the planet, sharing it’s special treasures with us. The message is clear. We are a part of this magical, life giving force. We are the caretakers. Nurture and care.
