"And as the leaves shall nourish the roots . . ."

Dear Each and Every One,

It has been a rich and rewarding week with World Pulse, as our Correspondents prepare to submit their Module 1 assignments. We all seem to draw closer and to uncover even more treasure in each other. So tonight and tomorrow, after the work is submitted, may you find ongoing recognition of all our efforts, both individual and collective, in these words, spoken to whomever or whatever you choose, or simply given from me to you. This particular prayer, or meditation -- however you wish to receive it -- seems to fit in organically with all the beautiful photos of and sentiments about the natural world we've been posting. - Sarah

"We pray for balance and exchange. Balance us like trees. As the roots of a tree shall equal its branches so must the inner life be equal to the outer life. And as the leaves shall nourish the roots, so shall the roots give nourishment to the leaves. Without equality and exchange of nourishment there can be no growth and no love "
