“It is undeniably easier to ignore the hardships of those who are too weak to demand their rights than to respond sensitively to their needs. To care is to accept responsibility, to dare to act in accordance with the dictum that the ruler is the strength of the helpless.” Aung San Suu Kyi
I am clearing a space—
Here, where the trees stand back.
I am making a circle so open
The moon will fall in love
And stroke these grasses with her silver.—Morgan Farley
The Circle has healing power.
In the Circle, we are all equal.
When in the Circle, no one is in front of you.
No one is above you.
No one is below you.
The Sacred Circle is designed to Create Unity.
The Hoop of Life is also a Circle.
On this hoop there is a place for every species, every race, every tree and every plant.
It is this completeness of Life that must be respected in oorder to bring about health on this planet.
~Dave Chief, Oglala Lakota
