Attend, every heart, to the blessings of this earth, to our responsibilities to it and to all of life. Wherever we are, in whatever circumstances we find ourselves, may we remember and stay mindful of this life that sustains us and blesses us, and our responsibilities to the present, the past, and the future. Wisdom give us courage to make difficult choices and changes, to draw upon the traditions and accumulated wisdom of ages when it can help and to seek, create, and share new wisdom to answer new persistent problems. Attend, every heart, to the blessings of this earth, to our responsibilities to it and to all of life. May we be ever mindful and ever active in nourishing the whole, in tending and sharing these blessings, in bearing up and on with love and care, now and all our days. Amen.
