WE MAY LEARN  anew what compassion and beauty are, and pause to listen to the Earth's music. We may see that progress is neither the accelerating speed with which we multiply and subdue the Earth nor the growing number of things we possess and cling to. It is a way along which to search for truth, to find serenity and love and reverence for life, to be a part of an enduring harmony trying hard not to sing out of tune.
