Prayer for the Naturalist
Life Force ENERGY That moves the stars and the seasons and also beats my heart I honor you and I acknowledge my connection with the web of life. I trust the wisdom of Nature’s laws and believe that there is a reason, and a law in motion And I see the outplay of them in every leaf, insect, animal, weather pattern and star. I live for today on what has been provided abundantly. I learn from the past, but don’t dwell there. I look toward the future with hope, and not with fear. For I know that balance shifts and evolution is at play, and it’s all beautiful I know not where it leads, but I believe in its necessity. And so it is, and so it will be.
