protection and earth image

Thou shalt love and honor Earth for it blesses thy life and governs thy survival.

Thou shalt keep each day sacred to Earth and celebrate the turning of its seasons.

Thou shalt not hold thyself above other living things nor drive them to extinction.

Thou shalt give thanks for thy food to the creatures and plants that nourish thee.

Thou shalt limit thy offspring for multitudes of people are a burden unto Earth.

Thou shalt not kill nor waste Earth’s riches upon weapons of war.

Thou shalt not pursue profit at Earth’s expense but strive to restore its damaged majesty.

Thou shalt not hide from thyself or others the consequences of thy actions upon Earth.

Thou shalt not steal from future generations by impoverishing or poisoning Earth.

Thou shalt consume material good in moderation so all may share Earth’s bounty.
