Please don’t take me for granted – I’m a rare
Freak of nature and now is the time to appreciate
What I am saying to the Earth!
Love, Steven Arnold”
“This is the return of the female powers to balance the Earth
The female energies come forth and heal the planet –
as holicaust and greed stir hatred,
The Mother of Earth saves us and unites us – We her children.”
“Our childish behavior melts away in the realization
Of the balance of Earth’s true energies –
We drop to our knees in humility
Witnessing the grace and beauty of our own human cycles.”
“The Earth lifts its feminine veil for a new balance of nature –
Look at your mothers and sisters before you act –
Listen to their compassion and grace
This is the wisdom of balance in the Earth and where we now need to turn.”
“I interview myself all day long – Doesn’t every one?
Rant and rave about bliss, the creative process angels listening to higher message-
appreciation of ones gifts.
The best way is to elevate consciousness is to do the work with love
Love is sharing the message.”
“Art is revolution or it’s nothing .”
