Dear Friends of Cultivate,
Some of our staff would like to share some thoughts with you at this holiday season.
"It is Christmas time again... a time for shopping? Alongside the material gifts that we share with loved ones, let's share our attention, our love, our caring. While we spend quality time with those near and dear, let's also nuture our sense of belonging to 'All Our Relations'; that is, all people, everywhere, and all other beings as well. While we travel to be with our mother or our father, our children or indeed anyone, let us reflect on how to better care for our shared Mother, Earth, and our shared Father, Sky, and our shared Children, the Future. As we make New Year's resolutions, let's resolve to heal ourselves... and to do so in order that we can be useful to others; in order to cultivate such attitudes as: 'What can I do for you?' and 'How can I be steward of this Earth for the benefit of present and future generations?'"
