Introduction
Philippines, how it began

Tales from the Earth

We often hear the expression "as old the earth" or "as old as the hills." If only we could ask the mountains about what happened in the eons that passed long before our birth, then perhaps we can get answers to why we are here.

By reaching into our past, we commune with ancestors who may reveal to us our true purpose, our singular mission in life...

Here are earth tales, or stories that show how the land we walk on first began. In its dust motes may we find our true identity.
