EXCERPT

The Circle of Life

Everyone is related. I mean EVERYONE. That is the way we were made...like cousins, uncles, sisters and brothers. I like to think of everyone as family. I'll give you an example of what I am talking about.

Pretend you are seeing one of the dog people in front of you. (I call them "people," you may not. But that's okay too.)

Let's pretend you see a dog person and you say, instead of "dog," UNCLE DOG. See what I mean? That denotes respect. Or SISTER HORSE. Of course, when you know their true name--like mine is Delphi--then you can say SISTER DELPHI. How does that sound to you? That's the way you can begin to remember that we are really a CIRCLE OF LIFE, all connected together by Grandmother Love. Then no one will hurt another. We will all get along fine.

More Smiling

Let's talk about smiling for awhile. Keep this in mind, one smile is worth a lot of frowns. There is no price on a smile!

I can't think of a better gift to give anybody than your smile. Can you remember how many times you have smiled today?

I guess that is really hard to remember--how many times you have smiled. Do me a favor, will you? Carry a small notebook--the kind that fits in your pocket--and for the next three days, EVERY TIME YOU SMILE MAKE A MARK IN YOUR NOTEBOOK. That's right, keep a record of your smiles.

Maybe we could have a contest later on to see who can smile the most. That would be fun, wouldn't it?

Listen

Don't pick anything without permission. And never cut down a tree--not even for Christmas--without first asking the tree itself if it is okay. Sometimes trees want to stay where they are and don't want to be cut.

And here is something else you should know...Guess who might be standing beside the tree when you are thinking about twisting a branch or cutting it down? A gnome! And I have to tell you, you will have a friend for life if you ask permission.

If people could learn that we are all partners and we can live together without hurting one another, that would make Mother Earth very happy.
