                                      Ukiah, CA  95482 
               Duplicate Membership Application (as presented in GREEN EGG Oimlec
           1989) Distributed Electronically to  the Pagan Community by  the Pagan
           Information Network in the general interest of all. 
               In dedication tothe celebration of life in itsmany forms, I hereby
           declare my  commitment to a way  of life that is  ethical, benevolent,
           humanistic,  life-affirming,  ecstatic  and   ecologically  sane.    I
           subscribe  to   means  and  methods  that  are  creative  rather  than
           destructive, tolerant rather  than authoritarian,  gentle rather  than
           violent,  inclusive  rather  than  exclusive.    I  pledge  myself  to
           harmonious  eco-psychic awareness  with  the total  biosphere of  holy
           Mother Earth. 
           Like a redwood  tree, I would have  my roots deep in the  Earth and my
           branches reaching for the stars. 
           I acknowledge  my personal  responsibility for  myself,  to my  fellow
           humans,  and  to the  whole  of  Nature; and  I  recognize  this total
           responsibility,  in each of us, as  the source of our infinite freedom
           to become who we are and do what we will.  I dedicate myself to my own
           inner  growth and  development that  I may  be  of greater  service to
           myself  and  the  world around  me.    For these  reasons  I recognize
           Divinity both  within and without,  and I say  to myself and  others :
           I wish  to unite with  others upon a  spiritual path that  encompasses
           both the  Heaven's and  the Earth,  and all  the  worlds between,  and
           hereby make  application to join the  membership of the Church  of All
           Worlds, in order that we may  learn together and teach each other ways
           to bring about these ends. 
           I  understand that this association  does not require  the severing of
           any other religious ties.
