Towards a True Balance

into the light

Be mindful! Husband the earth. Protect her from greed and violence. Build humbly, plant trees, grow flowers and clothe her with dignity. Respect all her creatures. Honour her natural laws and the universe which cradles her. Above all, heartily worship the Source of All That Is.

This world needs secret heroes! Be brave, speak the truth, heal the sick, make peace. Be strong, serve patiently, love generously, live simply. Enjoy fellowship, eat and drink modestly, walk often, cycle and recycle. Be thrifty, prefer cashflow to possession, give good measure. Let your work be your prayer.

Put on the whole armour of light! Unearth the beauty in everything. Inhale the Spirit of Goodness. Kindle kindness, especially toward yourself, embracing the sweet silence of your own soul. Fear nothing. Accept what you are and – while you have breath – give thanks. – Towards A True Balance by John P. Rogers
