Give and take...  For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life. For to the flower a bee is a messenger of love. And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving is a need and an ecstasy.

The flower that grows above the clouds will never wither. And the song chanted by the lips of the brides of dawn will never vanish.

The millstone may break down, but the river continues its course to the sea.

The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.

The tree that contrives to cheat life by living in the shade withers when it is removed and replanted in the sun.

Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky.

When I planted my pain in the field of patience, it bore fruit of happiness.

Live strong as the mountains.

May the stars carry your sadness away.
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty.
May hope forever wipe away your tears.
And above all, may silence make you strong.

May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house.  
May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there.  
May your moccasins make happy tracks in many snows,
And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.

May your life be like a wild flower, growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.

The Soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tears.

Walk tall as the trees.

We return thanks to our Mother, the Earth, which sustains us. We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water. We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases. We return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone. We return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the Earth with a beneficent eye. Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness, and who directs all things for the good of her children.

When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.

Chief Seattle

Chief Seattle  1780 - 1866
How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of this Earth is sacred to my people.  We are part of the Earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters; the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.

Ray Stevens

Ray Stevens  1939

Everything is beautiful in it's own way.
Like the starry summer night, or a snow-covered winter's day.
And everybody's beautiful in their own way.
Under God's heaven, the world's gonna find the way.    

There is none so blind as he who will not see.
We must not close our minds, we must let our thoughts be free.
For every hour that passes by, we know the world gets a little bit older,
It's time to realize that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

Patience Strong

Patience Strong  1907 - 1990

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky.

The same stream of life that runs through the world, runs through my veins night and day, and dances in rhythmic measure. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the Earth into numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

Trees are the Earths endless effort to speak to the listening Heaven.

Listen With Your Heart

I love this video about how trees are record keepers and that we can communicate with them. The video is made by Oribel, using the words from the book 'Tree Talk - Messages From The Earth's Trees' by Dianne Robbins, the music is Forest Gump Suite. It is a beautiful combination of photographs, music and words about one of my favourite things... Trees.
I have also added a longer version on my Feel Good Videos page, where you will also find the words for that video which are mostly the same as this one.
