Vows for the earth

The following vows are taken from “Active Hope”, a book by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone. It really resonates with me, I hope you find so as well…

I vow to myself and to each of you:

To commit myself daily to the healing of our world and the welfare of all beings,

To live on Earth more lightly and less violently in the food, products and energy I consume,

To draw strength and guidance from the living Earth, the ancestors, the future generations, and my brothers and sisters of all species,

To support others in our work for the world and to ask for help when I need it,

To pursue a daily practice that clarifies my mind, strengthens my heart, and supports me in observing these vows.
