Example text

I am the fresh smell of the rice fields. I am the earth that shaped you from tiny dust. I am the trunk of a talisay tree standing amidst the polluted and overpopulated urban areas. I am the tall and stately coconut trees that line the shores. I am the sturdy bamboo that sways unbroken by strong winds, Page 35 and dances to the rhythm of the gentle breeze. I am the giant eagle that flies searching for tall trees. I am the forest cool with sun's early morning rays. I am the weaver of your stories and dreams that clothe the universe!

Mindfulness is to be aware and alive to what Page x is going on within and without. I hope Earth and All the Stars will engender such an attitude in the minds and hearts of readers. The creation stories, prayers, poems, hymns, songs, and reflections drawn from the great cultures and religions of the world were selected for this purpose. A few are very familiar; many are new. The vedas of antiquity, some as old as three thousand years, have a freshness that transcends time. The truths of God and creation are eternal and they are always, in every age, timely.

A journey of a thousand miles starts where your feet are right now. When people do not fear force, greater force is on the way. Page 43 Nothing beneath heaven is softer and weaker than water. The weak overcomes the strong, the soft overcomes the hard. The more s/he gives, the more s/he receives. The way of Heaven is to benefit but not to harm. They way of the sage is to work in concert with heaven. Tao Te Ching (meaning ''the way"), the twenty-five-hundred-year-old treasury of wisdom that originated in China, has maintained its appeal throughout all ages and cultures.
