SOLO: Peace Be With You.
UNISON: Acquire My Peace Within you.

Solo: Where are you from?
Unison: We have come from the place where Light is produced from itself.

Solo: Where is that place?
Unison: It’s a mystery.

Solo: But can you say you image the light?
Unison: Yes, indeed. We carry the light within.

Solo: And the peace?
Unison: Yes, also the peace.

Solo: How do you know of such light and such peace?
Unison: The sign is the feeling.
The sign is the movement from within.
The sign is the passion for the well-being of all.

Solo: What are your other signs?
Unison: Our recognitions of injustice and hatred and oppression
Throughout the globe, of power struggles and violence
That seem unending.

Solo: Can we turn those around?
Unison: We must seek to do so.

Solo: Are you willing to spread your light and your peace?
Unison: We are eager to spread them.
They spread just as love spreads.

: Solo: The kingdom spreads out on the earth, just as love spreads.
Union: But some people are not aware of it.

Solo: Yet you are aware.
Unison: Yes, indeed.
We are aware of the light and the movement and the peace.
And we cannot stand back.
We will step forward.
We will overcome the violence, the domination, the hatred,
And spread love.


Genesis 1:1-5

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Blessed Be The Wind

Without the wind, most of Earth would be uninhabitable. The tropics would grow so unbearably hot that nothing could live there, and the rest of the planet would freeze. Moisture, if any existed, would be confined to the oceans, and all but the fringe of the great continents…would be desert. There would be no erosion, no soil, and for any community that managed to evolve despite these rigors, no relief from suffocation by their own waste products.
But with the wind, Earth comes truly alive. Winds provide the circulatory and nervous systems of the planet, sharing out energy and information, distributing both warmth and awareness, making something out of nothing.
All wind’s properties are borrowed. Our knowledge of it comes at secondhand, but it comes strongly. And this combination of a force that cannot be apprehended, but nevertheless has an undeniable existence was our first experience of the spiritual. A crack in the cosmos that widened to let the tide of consciousness flow through.
We are the fruits of the wind---and have been seeded, irrigated, and cultivated by its craft.

Lyall Watson

With every breath, I am grounded in the awareness of the one life that lives, breathes and has its being through all things, both seen and unseen. I know that I am an individuation of this universal creative intelligence and a perfect conduit for the divine energy flow that explicitly manifests as right action toward the fulfillment of highest good for all life. Through this sublime realization I claim for myself and for the entire planet: a healing from any imbalances born of separation consciousness, environmental reclamation, good stewardship of natural resources and the restoration of balance with respect to greenhouse gases in our planet’s atmosphere. It is with an open and most grateful heart that I accept this good as my divine inheritance, that I bless this opportunity to know and experience the Godhood that is the truth of my being, that I joyfully accept my place on this planet at this time by divine appointment, and that I rejoice in the ecstatic fulfillment of these words as they impress upon the law. I blissfully release this prayer and surrender these words to the immutable process that is God and simply let it be. And so it is.

Nature’s Beauty

A priest was in charge of the garden within a famous Zen temple. He had been given the job because he loved the flowers, shrubs, and trees. Next to the temple there was another, smaller temple where there lived a very old Zen master. One day, when the priest was expecting some special guests, he took extra care in tending to the garden. He pulled the weeds, trimmed the shrubs, combed the moss, and spent a long time meticulously raking up and carefully arranging all the dry autumn leaves. As he worked, the old master watched him with interest from across the wall that separated the temples.
When he had finished, the priest stood back to admire his work. “Isn’t it beautiful,” he called out to the old master. “Yes,” replied the old man, “but there is something missing. Help me over this wall and I’ll put it right for you.”
After hesitating, the priest lifted the old fellow over and set him down. Slowly, the master waked to the tree near the center of the garden, grabbed it by the trunk, and shook it. Leaves showered down all over the garden. “There,” said the old man, “you can put me back now.”

Zen tale

A Reading from the Gospel of Mary Magdalene

And she began to speak to them these words: I saw the Lord in a vision and I said to Him, Lord I saw you today in a vision. He answered and said to me, Blessed are you that you did not waver at the sight of Me. For where the mind is there is the treasure.


It is lovely indeed, it is lovely indeed.
I, I am the spirit within the earth.
The feet of the earth are my feat;
The legs of the earth are my legs.
The strength of the earth is my strength;
The thoughts of the earth are my; thoughts;
The voice of the earth is my voice.
The feather of the earth is my feather
All that belongs to the earth belongs to me;
All that surrounds the earth surrounds me.
I, I am the sacred works of the earth
It is lovely indeed, it is lovely indeed.
