For whom should we organize this Earth? For the five thousand 'minorities' on this planet, for humanity, for religions, for nations, for languages, for cultures, for races, for coalitions?
At this stage of our evolution we should govern and organize ourselves for the preservation and conservation of the Earth and the birth of a peaceful, happy, wholesome human family.

Chapter 1 Our Place in the Universe
During most of human history, people thought that the Earth was the center of the universe. Then we learned that the sun was not turning around the Earth but that the Earth was circling around the sun. So we thought that the sun was the center of the universe. Then we learned that the sun is only a small star turning around the axis of a galaxy of stars. Then we learned that this galaxy is circling around the pole of a cluster of galaxies which in turn is rotating around the pole of a spheric expanding universe!*
How small and diminished we have become! Scientists further tell us that time, distance, speed, mass and energy are all relative. But, if this is so, then perhaps we are not so small after all! We might even be the only planet with life in a universe of fire, gases, atomic explosions and interstellar voids! Our conditions might be unique: the right distance from a sun not to burn and not to freeze, the right mass to retain water and an atmosphere, the right rotation and orbit, the right atomic density and chemical composition.
So we might after all be a true showpiece, a unique, miraculous success of the cosmos. What responsibility this would mean!
What change of thinking, concerns, policies and behavior it would require from our political leaders! What immense human pride, gratitude and truly religious feeling it would command from us!
Why not try loving and managing well that miracle?

WORD FOR THE DAY
Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb.
