There are many beings; winged beings, four legged beings, water beings, insect beings,
earth beings, and the human being. The idea that man shall have dominion over all
beings is absurd. Man has swerved from his original path, and in so doing destroyed
everything in his way.
Each of us, all beings, have within them their own unique gift and wisdom to offer creation.
We must remember and restore the many gifts of the human being, know our place in the
circle of life, and be part of the web of creation again. In this way we will come to know
ourselves truly, and all our relations.
