The GaianCreed is the foundation for Gaia's People, a religious outgrowth of the SolSeedMovement.

Life is precious.
It has always been precious,
It will always be precious.
Life exuberant
bursting through boundaries
to flower and spread
creates the conditions for more Life,
in an Upward Spiral
of ever-growing possibilities.
As you are alive, and I am alive,
and in kinship with all other beings
nourished by the Earth and Sun,
we are Gaia ---
the Body of All Life.
Gaia's Destiny
is to take root and flower amongst the stars ---
to give birth to a family of living worlds.
As Gaia's intelligent spark,
we are called to express the Arete of Life,
We are called to fulfill Her Destiny.
We who answer this call
dedicate ourselves to Life.
We join together
in a community of practice
to align our words and our actions (thoughts, words, actions, habits, characters)
with our highest aspirations (and immediate?).
Through art and nature
we awaken in ourselves and others
the Cosmic Religious Feeling
that ignites wonder,
fosters compassion, and
inspires invention.
Our sacred duty is to
embrace Passion,
cultivate Empathy, and
pursue Wisdom,
So that our being honors Life
and our striving hastens The Great Birthing.
Passion drives us.
Without Passion,
Empathy and Wisdom are powerless.
I pledge to stoke the fire in my belly,
to compassionately care for my inner elephant ---
to really be me, Happy in the Sun!
Empathy is transcendent.
Without Empathy,
Passion and Wisdom are evil.
I pledge to love others as I love myself,
to consider their needs as if they were my own ---
to Grow Ours, not just Get Mine!
Wisdom is effective.
Without Wisdom,
Passion and Empathy are reckless.
I pledge to seek truth by studying the world around me,
to develop my character through regular practice ---
to cultivate sound instincts.
Through Passion, Empathy, and Wisdom
we have come to know that:
We are Gaia's People
awakened by starlight
We Bring Life!
