I am grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge you in this prayer.
To the mineral nation that has built and maintained my bones and all the foundations of life experience, the planets and the stars, I thank you.
To the plant nation for the oxygen in every breath I take, that sustains my organs and my body and gives me healing herbs for sickness, I thank you.
To the animal nation. You have fed me from your life and flesh and offered me loyal companionship in this walk of life. I thank you.
To the human nation for the help, the love and friendship I have received, I thank you.
To the spirit nation, the Great Spirit, that carries the light throughout the ages, for the gift of encounter, for beauty and for lifting the weight of the world from my shoulders, I thank you.
To the Four Winds of Change and Growth, I thank you.
You are my relations, my relatives without whom I would not live. We are in the circle of life together, co-existing, co-dependent, co-creating our destiny. One not more important than the other. All of us part of the Great Mystery.
Thank you for this life.
