The universe is an energy presence through which all things, seen and unseen, unfold and pass. Everything is constantly changing and forever fresh. We must honor, protect and celebrate this unity and diversity instead of fearing, conquering and destroying it. We and all things living and nonliving, named and unnamed, are the musical star dust of a universal song. Like the notes of a grand symphony, we are all part of one harmonic whole. We can come together in this unity and diversity and celebrate the universal energy dance of Life.
