We call upon the spirit of evolution, the miraculous force that inspires rocks and dust to weave themselves into biology - do not forsake us now.
Empower and awaken us to creativity.
You that can turn scales into feathers, seawater to blood, caterpillars to butterflies, metamorphose our species; awaken in us the powers that we need to survive the present crisis and evolve into more aeons of our solar journey.
Awaken in us a sense of who we truly are: tiny ephemeral blossoms on the Tree of Life.
Make the purposes and destiny of that tree our own purpose and destiny.
Fill each of us with love for our own true self, which includes all of the creatures and plants and landscapes of the Earth.
May the inner passion that comes from knowing this spread through these leaden times.
We call upon the power which sustains the planets in their orbits, that wheels our milky way in its 200 million year spiral, to fill our personalities and relationships with endurance, harmony and joy.
Fill us with a sense of immense time so that our brief, flickering lives may truly reflect the work of vast ages past and also millions of years of evolution whose potential lies in our trembling hands.
O stars, lend us your burning passion.
O silence give weight to our voice.
John Seed, international rainforest activist, Bodhi Farm
