Earth Prayer 
_x000D_
_x000D_ O Endless Creator, Force of Life, Seat of the Unconscious, 
_x000D_ Dharma, Atman, Ra, Qalb, Dear Center of our Love, 
_x000D_ Christlight, Yaweh, Allah, Mawu, 
_x000D_ Mother of the Universe… 
_x000D_
_x000D_ Let us, when swimming with the stream, 
_x000D_ become the stream. 
_x000D_ Let us, when moving with the music, 
_x000D_ become the music. 
_x000D_ Let us, when rocking the wounded, 
_x000D_ become the suffering. 
_x000D_
_x000D_ Let us live deep enough 
_x000D_ till there is only one direction. 
_x000D_ and slow enough till there is only 
_x000D_ the beginning of time. 
_x000D_ and loud enough in our hearts 
_x000D_ till there is no need to speak. 
_x000D_
_x000D_ Let us live for the grace beneath all we want, 
_x000D_ let us see it in everything and everyone, 
_x000D_ till we admit to the mystery 
_x000D_ that when I look deep enough into you, 
_x000D_ I find me, and when you dare to hear my fear 
_x000D_ in the recess of your heart, you recognize it 
_x000D_ as your secret which you thought 
_x000D_ no one else knew. 
_x000D_
_x000D_ O let us embrace 
_x000D_ that unexpected moment of unity 
_x000D_ as the atom of God. 
_x000D_ Let us have the courage 
_x000D_ to hold each other when we break 
_x000D_ and worship what unfolds… 
_x000D_
_x000D_ O nameless spirit that is not done with us, 
_x000D_ let us love without a net 
_x000D_ beyond the fear of death 
_x000D_ until the speck of peace 
_x000D_ we guard so well 
_x000D_ becomes the world. 
_x000D_ —Mark Nepo
