|“…Grandmother the Earth. That power is here all the time. It is continuous, and nobody controls it.”|
|–Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA|
|There are certain powers that the human being has no choice but to obey. We cannot negotiate or barter with this power. Our choice is either to conform or to live out of harmony. Whatever our choice, it will be the end result in our lives that we notice. So it is with the powers of the Earth which produce life. The Earth has the life force power. If anyone plants a seed, the seed will grow. The Earth treats everyone equally. The human cannot interfere, only obey. We should all show great respect for the Earth and Her powers.|
Great Spirit, today, let me honor and respect the power of the Grandmother, the Earth.
