We Believe

Life is precious.
It has always been precious,
It will always be precious.
Life exuberant
bursting through boundaries
to flower and spread
creates the conditions for more Life,
in an Upward Spiral
of ever-growing possibilities.
As you are alive, and I am alive,
and in kinship with all other beings
nourished by Sol,
we are SolSeed ---
the Body of All Life.
The Destiny of SolSeed
is to take root and flower amongst the stars ---
to give birth to a family of living worlds.
As SolSeed's intelligent spark,
we are called to express the Arete of Life,
We are called to fulfill The Destiny.
We who answer the call
dedicate ourselves to Life.
We join together
in a community of practice
to align our actions
with our highest aspirations.
Through art and the natural world
we awaken within ourselves and others
the Cosmic Religious Feeling
that ignites wonder,
fosters compassion, and
inspires us to proactively create.
Our sacred duty is to
embrace Passion,
cultivate Empathy, and
pursue Wisdom,
So that our being honors Life
and our striving advances The Destiny.
Passion drives us.
Without Passion,
Empathy and Wisdom are impotent.
I pledge to stoke the fire in my belly,
to compassionately care for my inner elephant ---
to really be me, Happy in the Sun!
Empathy is transcendent.
Without Empathy,
Passion and Wisdom are evil.
I pledge to love others as I love myself,
to consider their needs as if they were my own ---
to Grow Ours, not just Get Mine!
Wisdom is effective.
Without Wisdom,
Passion and Empathy are feeble and capricious.
I pledge to seek truth by studying the world around me,
to develop my character through regular practice ---
to cultivate sound instincts.
Through Passion, Empathy, and Wisdom
we have come to know that:
We are SolSeed
children of the Earth and Sun
awakened by starlight
We Bring Life!
