Planet Reflection

A ‘Planet’ reflection with words from Ernesto Cardenal, Greta Thunberg, Arundhati Roy and Cornel West.

Planet Reflection

Planet Reflection
From our book, Seeds Of Hope

We turn outward, attracted by the beauty we see in created
things, without realising that they are only a reflection of
the real beauty. And the real beauty is within us.

My message to all the activists is to just keep going. And I know
it may seem impossible and hopeless sometimes. It always does.
So, you just have to continue because, if you try hard enough and long enough, you will make a difference. And if enough people
stand together, fight for the right thing, then anything can happen.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way
On a quiet day I can hear her breathing

We have been shown what is good
May we act justly, love mercy and walk humbly

We believe
That justice is how love looks in public
That hope is a song in a weary voice
That stumbling is not falling
Together we can be the change we long to see

We believe
That peace is the apology of the strong to the weak
That faith is being sure of what we hope for
That we all come from the creator
Trailing wisps of glory

We believe
That if we have eyes to see
That if we have ears to hear
That when we least expect it
Hope bursts into life
Stable walls echoing to a baby’s first cry

The Talmud says that every blade of grass
has its own angel bending over it, whispering
“Grow, Grow”

Treat the earth well
It was not given to us by our parents
It was loaned to us by our children

So walk softly upon the earth
May its beauty surround you
May its wisdom delight you
May its music invite you

Listen to the pain of the voiceless
Water the barren earth
Plant seeds in the wasteland
And act as if our hope in the future is irresistible
