“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on – have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear – what remains? Nature remains. ~ Walt Whitman


Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

~ Lord of the Rings


Comedian Russell Brand On the Pre-Christian Man

 “If like the Celtic people we revered the rivers we would prioritise this sacred knowledge and curtail the attempts of any that sought to pollute the rivers. If like the Nordic people we believed the souls of our ancestors lived in the trees, this connection would make mass deforestation anathema. If like the native people of America we believed God was in the soil what would our intuitive response be to the implementation of fracking?” ~ Russell Brand (Newstatesman)

I’m neither endorsing nor rejecting Russell Brand’s political views. I’m simply sharing a quote from a famous comedian and pop culture icon that discusses the world of the Pre-Christian man.


The Planet Doesn’t Need More “Successful People”

NSSA 04-23-06

“The planet does not need more ‘successful’ people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every shape and form. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these needs have little to do with success as our culture has defined it.” 

~ David Orr (From the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids)

”A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey
