Sink into the earth, even as you reach for the heavens and something beyond harsh reality, for you are a creature of the earth and as such you must face the reality of the place you call home and take responsibility for what has become of your shared domicile. No creature except the human being has knowledge of spirit and yet the human being has forgotten how to be truly human, how to keep its home in order and its spirit contented with what is. Rather than seek transformation of your spirit, seek to transform your human self by changing your attitudes and letting go of your entitlements so that spirit and body may be one, and then seek to transform your world so that it may sustain and nurture all of you. The world is waiting.
-From the Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne
