Tenet No. 17 (of 40) of A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders

“The integrity we perceive in nature is our own birthright.  We swim in the one and only stream of life. By recognizing that we are part of this vast, subtle, ancient order, we maybe restored to wholeness.  A sense of communion with other organisms, with the energies and patterns of nature is instinctive in children, and it is available to every adult who has ever watched a bird or cloud. A sense of solidarity not only with all things presently alive but also with generations past and to come, may free us from the confines of the private ego.”
