How we squandered the world...and our souls

Many industrialized nations are becoming more and more removed from
nature, as money and material success become their "Gods"...while Indigenous
Peoples around the world still maintain their reverence for the Earth. And, like
the Native American Indians, their relationship to the Earth is part of their
everyday life. I strongly suspect that man's escalation of unhealthy minds,
greed, prejudice, and wars is in direct correlation to man's steady descent from
his innate spiritual connection to the Earth.
