When Genius and Compassion came to live among us,
they did not ask to be billionaires;
for they knew that greed and love of money
was destroying the Earth.
Genius and Compassion asked for a willingness
to see the beauty in the Forgotten Familiar.
In every sunrise and sunset; in every fruit,
flower and tree; in every birth, death and re-birth;
through every storm or violent unnecessary war,
Hope has become the Forgotten Familiar that makes
it possible to live and honor the power of Abiding Love.
Remembering that Genius and Compassion live within me,
I Breathe Deeply Six Times.
I open my heart and see the beauty in the Forgotten Familiar.
Hope lives in trees and flowers and mountains and oceans.
Hope grows with trust and in every child offers
its smiles of Love.
To even the unworthy among us,
Hope, the Forgotten Familiar
is the Master Creator's
constant offering of Forgiveness
so that we may learn to live, work and prosper
together in peace with Abiding Love!
