~The Earth is our Mother, Care for her; honor all your relations. Open your heart and soul the the Great Spirit. All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect. Take from the earth what is needed and nothing more. Do what needs to be done for the good in others. Give constant thanks to the Great Spirit for each new day. Speak the truth, but only of the good in others. Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun. Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks.~
~The Native American Creed~
