May we cultivate a vision of a world where love and compassion are stronger than hatred, fear, and self-interest.
May we envision a world where justice is administered impartially and not influenced by politics, race, social and economic status.
May we all work for a world where individuals and nations choose cooperation and sharing over competition and hoarding.
May we learn, individually and collectively, that we are stewards of our planet and its riches, not its abusers.
May we create a world where we all understand that we are one another’s keeper, and that what happens to one individual affects everyone.
May we all learn to listen to, understand, support, and nurture one another.
And in the words of Paramahansa Yogananda, may we know that “the happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others.”
