Love all Creation,
the whole of it and every grain of sand.
Love every leaf,
every ray of God's light.
Love the animals,
love the plants,
If you love everything,
you will perceive the Divine Mystery
in all things.
And once you have perceived it,
you will begin to comprehend it ceaselessly
more and more everyday.
And you will at last come to love the whole world
with an abiding universal love.
