Earth Day 2012: The Earth Is My Church


I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau

In honor of Earth Day celebrations (April 22), I wish you and your dear ones continued blessings, and an ever-increasing sense of connection and communication with our dear Mother Earth.


In Lak'ech Ala K'in,

Lyrics from Video:

The Earth Is My Church
by Periel Marr Stanfield, Alex Beroza & Brad Stanfield

When I put on my Sunday best
I proceed to get undressed
My holy temple requires no clothes
No high heels, no pantyhose

I’m not trying to be malicious
Heretical or sacrilegious
I’m not an atheist, it’s just the reverse
I’m a human soul on a spiritual search

The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth comes first

I don’t need no preacher man
No Sunday school, no master plan
No fiery hell, no mighty sword
No oxy-moronic “holy” wars

I don’t have to bash the bible
All I need for my survival
Is the sun, the sea, the sky, the dirt
And that’s the whole story, chapter and verse

The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth comes first

At one with nature’s innocence
The dolphins and the elephants
I kiss the trees, embrace the sky
I harmonize with the butterflies

Freedom is the final fruition
Of the fate of the human condition
Corruption of religion is history’s curse
Universal love’s the only vision of worth

The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth comes first

The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church

The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church
The earth is my church

the earth is indeed a church Ah yes dear CG .. and the body a sacred temple, not enough to say it must also treat this way like the earth not mistreat the earth nor the body both sacred vessels.

The spirit is willing but the body is weak, Ah yes the earth is a vessel, a temple, a church but those who are spiritually immature so many things are not revealed to us because we have not seeked out our spirit who guides us in the light of the world, the truth. Blessings to you and yours CG for your spirit is beautiful, it speaks the light unto others those who listen, those who have ears. Mike lovett-(Darkflavad) May we continue to keep in touch.
