Alex Collier At The Ranch Lecture 1996
(1h 12m 52s)
“I have given a lot of thought to our race, character issues and I just want to share with you some of my thoughts on the human race and about people. A lot of it comes from my own experience, dealing with us.”
“A human being whoose heart shows no passion, is a person who doesn’t have a life”.
“A human being who doesn’t give from his heart or her heart is a person who will lie to you.”
“A human being whoose heart is commited to nothing is a person who will not try, who will only take”
“ A human being who is not willing to risk or take chances for love is a person who is absolutely empty inside, they’re already dead they’re just sucking up air”

Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds and whose breath gives life to all in the world, hear me!
I am small and I am weak and I need your strength and your wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and let my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunsets that you have created with me.
Make my hands respect the things that you have made and my ears sharp to hear your words and your voice.
Let me learn the lessons that you have hidden under every rock and leaf.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy – myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes, so that when my life fades as the fading sunset, my spirit can come to you without shame.
