For all who teach:
May gentleness and skill be in your hands.
May patience and courage fill your hearts.
May curiosity and wisdom light your minds.
May love walk with you and flow through you,
as you go about the work of guiding the learners in your care.
May love and skill be in your hands
May love and courage be in your hearts
May love and curiosity light you minds
May love walk with you and flow through you
As you explore all the wonders of our world.

I don’t think our lifestyle choices are in and of themselves political. The political part is whether our lifestyle choices help us to become more human. If they help us feel a sense of personal integrity, and if that integrity gives us the power to fight further, to imagine deeper, to want more.
Peace is all around us
in the world and in nature
and within us
in our bodies and our spirits.
Once we learn to touch this peace,
we will be healed and transformed.
It is not a matter of faith;
it is a matter of practice.
