Care of the Earth


The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy,
and after all, our most pleasing responsibility.
To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.

Like the sun

Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things they are transformed.

Blessed by the longing…

Blessed be the longing that brought you here
And quickens your soul with wonder.

May you have the courage to listen to the voice of desire
That disturbs you when you have settled for something safe.

May you have the wisdom to enter generously into
your own unease

To discover the new direction your longing wants
you to take.

May the forms of your belonging — in love, creativity
and friendship —

Be equal to the grandeur and the call of your soul.

Better conditions

“Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living
In better conditions.” ― Hafiz

We are here to encourage one another. Fear is not the place to live. No one would argue.

And so we must care for one another. There are things happening around us that feel beyond our control. Things we see and some we may not see. Fear of the unknown is a real experience. An experience people are quick to exploit.

This must stop. Fear will not win.

We are here to encourage one another so that we all may live free of fear.
