I am a biological life form, similar in carbon-based makeup to all other biological life forms on the planet. I am called, human, a term derived from the stem, humus or soil. I am intimately connected to the natural world. I can feel the earth, the trees and grass, soil and wind. I smell nature, sense it deep in my bones, and I am comforted by knowing that I belong here. I am awestruck at the beauty and fragility of creation and my most fundamental nature is an extension of the cosmological life force. This,I have always known.

My role while here is to treat nature with the care that I would treat myself. She not only sustains me - all of us - she is us. We are as cells within her glorious organism. We should be oxygen carrying cells - life promoters, not cancer cells.
