LL of us,|
All people, all species, all of life
We all share
Wherever we are,
Everything connects with all else.
May this knowledge inspire us....|
To listen to one another;
To see sacredness all around us
in ourselves and in each other;
in the vast cosmos through which we travel;
in this our home planet; and in all forms of life
To reach out in generosity to one another....
To understand all as One;
ORN on the same planet....|
covered by the same skies
gazing at the same stars
breathing the same air:
We must learn to happily progress together
For mankind might live individually
LTHOUGH we are many,|
we are One body:
For we all share
"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch,|
you must first create the universe."
– Carl Sagan (1934-1996), US astronomer
If you can see a tiny blue spot to the right of this text,
you are looking at the most distant photograph ever taken of our home.
Lit by a sunbeam, that blue spot is Earth viewed from 4 billion miles distant,
when in 1990 spacecraft «Voyager 1» turned to take this last look at home
before heading for ever onwards into the vastness of inter-stellar space.
