I'm not quite sure I follow exactly what you're trying to get at.
I understand that you're suggesting things such as Brahman, Yahweh, Wakan Tanka, the Tao and like associations are all the same thing. I understood
that much, although I disagree with the conclusion, as all of these forces are drastically different once you understand them beyond "they all made
I also understand that you're saying clinging to material possessions is a bad thing, which is a very Buddhist stand-point. It is also an
often-ignored Christian command as well. I also understand this viewpoint, although I disagree that neglecting possessions is correct.
What I don't get is how this ties into communion with the planet. In many Native American belief structures—where Wakan Tanka the Great Spirit,
called Mystery, is derived from—the discoveries you made are opposite to their practices. The Native American's were warlike, and possessive. They
coveted natural goods, big game, shiny objects from tradesman, and land. They also were very prejudiced people with racial beliefs, who segregated
themselves based on tribal origin.
Anyway, I'd just like to know how what you've stated applies to communion with the Earth.
