A poem for you…
Big Brother Mountain;
Father Sky above;
Canopy of clouds and sun,
Nourishing the Earth.
Brush, grasses, wild flowers, trees;
True Breath of our Life.
Gaia, Goddess Earth;
The womb of humanity,
From whence we are birthed.
Mother Starry Host;
Scattering the Seeds of Life
To all who’d receive.
Unity, wholeness, and peace;
I Am as I Am.
Wholeness within and without,
We are, The I Am.

There is no wrongness in embracing an innate kinship with the world we see around us. After all…
We are star stuff which has taken its destiny into its own hands…
Some part of our being knows this is where we came from… We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.
Our kinship and love of the Universe need not be an empty, mystical rite to be looked upon by others with ridicule or misunderstanding; but, rather, it is yet another type of personal allegory or myth that may illuminate to our understanding our place in the Universe. As Sagan has so oft-beautifully taught, there is much proven scientific evidence that points to our intimate physical connection with all of matter. We came from the cosmos; we are the cosmos, on the most basic, scientific levels. So it is only natural to embrace with wonder the familial kinship we have with our surroundings. It helps us to put so much more in perspective.
I am in love with Nature, I am in love with the Cosmos and with the Universe and all its inhabitants, from the seen to the unseen.
And this Perfect Love casts out Fear.
