    1 amendment
    We are all one the water in you is the same water in me
    The air rock and stars we are all one with
    Have reverence for all living things they are a part of you and you are a part of them behave in away that strengthens this connection.
    Allow freedom to exist for all living with out interruption or interference
    And in so doing thank and maintain an attitude of gratitude for all you eat
    Knowing you are one you eat the plants and creatures around you and when you leave your body they eat you back
    The balance of ONE!
