Earth Week Prayer

Step gently now upon her sphere
reach out to stop the madness
Dream wide-eyed like an innocent
your dreams will manifest
Thrive on the depth of her hues
be true to the soft green moss of her
Gaze in wide-eyed wonderment
entranced by her canopy of stars
Trace all the branches of her trees
her manna given like gift-lanterns
Ears opened to every soulful tone
feathered friends in soulful concert
Be silenced by her sacred code of peace
reverenced by all that she will teach
You are a citizen of all that she is
respectful in wandering her openness
Sleep in contentment with her wild
unharmed by the prints of your wake
You are rouged by her glowing core
washed clean by her generous seas
Adequately gloved in her goodness
and schooled by her ancient laws
Love her the way she has loved you
your mother, your home, your Earth

Some excerpts from ‘Earth Facts – Nations Online’

Intelligent Visitors from Outer Space:

Life on Planet Earth:
Carbon-based life forms exists since 3.5 – 3.9 billion years,
including animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and protists there may be over 30 million different species, the total number of animal species currently known is 1.5 million.

The life-form with the most influence on modifications on Earth is a sub-species of a hominid family of primates, originally living near coastlines and river banks (after they came down from the trees). It’s a relative old order of mammals, with an approximate age of 4.3 million years. This on hind limbs walking members of Homo sapiens sapiens, also known as the human race or mankind, originated most likely from the hot heart of the African continent. Meanwhile this species have spread all over the planet — some call this success.
It is presumed that the anatomically modern humans (AMH) have evolved from an archaic Homo sapiens in the Middle Paleolithic (better known as Stone Age), about 200.000 years ago.

Human Communication
The fundamental communication system of the human race is based on acoustic as well as kinesic signals, the spoken language and body language).
The nonverbal communication of human body signals is, in general, until now underestimated and has not been categorized very well.
On the other hand, the human acoustic signal systems can be divided in more than 6,800 different languages (by traditions coherent acoustic signal systems).
They are used by the various members of cultural human groups for their communication to express feelings, thoughts and the exchange of knowledge and experience.
About one-third of these languages have writing systems (symbolical pictorial signs of a language; storable and/or for carry away), the others are only spoken (sound generated). Since the beginning of Homo sapiens, new languages have been constantly emerging while others vanished forever.
Since at least 30,000 years this species has developed additional forms of communication, like paintings, sculptures and carving as well as some kind of melodious acoustic signals based on rhythm and harmony—they call it music.
Little is known about telepathic communication on Earth.
Earth Government:
There is no global government for Earth.
The organization of sovereign nations, the United Nations – UN with its humanitarian, peacekeeping and development tasks, might once play this role.
Meanwhile the political power is more or less divided among the USA and the other 193 Independent States, multinational companies, international bank consortiums, political as well as religious interest groups, and if you believe some conspiracy theories, an Enlightenment-era secret society called the Illuminati controls them all.
