What is firmly established cannot be uprooted.
What is firmly grasped cannot slip away.
It will be honoured from generation to generation.
Cultivate Virtue in yourself,
And Virtue will be real.
Cultivate it in the family,
And Virtue will abound.
Cultivate it in the village,
And Virtue will grow.
Cultivate it in the nation,
And Virtue will be abundant.
Cultivate it in the universe,
And Virtue will be everywhere...
So healing our families, communities, and planet must begin by cultivating virtue in ourselves. Here is an easy formula to remember:
Breathe, Observe, Let Go
Be well, Do good work, Keep in touch,
Learn, teach, heal, and create.
