Standing in that sacred place
between the heavens and the earth,
the balance of life rests trustingly our hands.
Faced with a moment of change,
the healing of a community, a nation, a world
comes through the simple acts of individuals.
To reduce the intolerance in the world,
have more tolerance with yourself and with others.
To reduce hostility in the world,
and allow space for respectful differences.
To reduce oppression in the world,
tread with gentle strength through your life,
always being aware of the impact you leave behind.
To reduce hopelessness in the world,
embrace your lifeís gifts,
and elevate others by living generously.
To reduce the hatred in the world,
weed out your own indifference,
and sow instead compassionate action.
To reduce the violence in the world,
tame your words,
being conscious of what they create.
To reduce the darkness in the world,
have the courage to illuminate those around you
with the profound radiance of your love.
To preserve the sacred places in the world,
explore, but take away only your memories;
leave behind only appreciation for having been there.
To strengthen your community, your nation, your world,
resist being an island of complacency,
and stand honorably within your personal Truth.
Wellness isnít an ideal, or a fleeting moment of youth,
it is a way of Being,
it is a state of mind.
By healing these things in yourself,
even if only in subtle ways,
you do change the world.
