In a Time of Darkness

In a time of darkness we become
part of the force that seeks to divide us,
or part of the love that seeks to unite us.
For energies of separation
work to polarize all points of view
so that conflict and discord prevail,
and the goals of peace and trust
are discredited as unreal.

In a time of light we do not have to
be vigilant to maintain the values
of love, for they are everywhere.
In a time of darkness we must pray
and listen that our voices
are voices that sanctify life,
that maintain respect,
that uphold the sacred.

This is our mandate as sacred beings,
and we offer it with every heartbeat,
and with every breath we take.
