Dieser Text inspiriert mich immer wieder aufs neue. Er hing viele Jahre im Kinderzimmer meiner Schwester auf einem Poster. Verfasst wurde der Text von White Cloud einem Indianerhäuptling.
Man has a poor understanding of Life. He mistakes knowledge for wisdom.
He tries to unvell the Holy secrets of our Father the Great Spirit.
He attempts to impose his Laws and ways on Mother Earth.Even though he, himself, is part of Nature, he chooses to disregard and ignore it for the sake of his own immediate gain.
But the Laws of Nature are far stronger than those of Mankind.
Man must awake at last, and learn to understand how little time there remains before he will become the cause of his own downfall.
And he has so much to learn. To learn to see with the heart.
He must learn to respect Mother Earth - She who has given Life to everything:
to our Brothers and Sisters, the Animals and the Plants;
to the Rivers, the Lakes, the Oceans and the Winds.
He must realise that this Planet does not belong to him,
but that he has to care for and maintain the delicate balance of Nature
for the sake of the wellbeing of our children and of all future generations.
It is the duty of Man to preserve the Earth and the creation of the Great Spirit.
Mankind being but a grain of sand in the Holy Circle which encloses all of Life.
