In perfect love and perfect trust, we ask for the blessings of Air, Fire,
Water, and Earth to help us dispel darkness and hate with the power of
light and love.
Spirits of the East, Spirits of Air, grant us wisdom and inspiration as we work toward truly understanding and truly knowing each other.
Spirits of the South, Spirits of Fire, grant us passion and zeal as we work for justice and equality for everyone.
Spirits of the West, Spirits of Water, grant us healing of mind and heart as we work toward ending fear, division, and hate, and bringing about reconciliation.
Spirits of the North, Spirits of Earth, grant us strength and endurance as we work to build the Beloved Community.
May the powers of the Ancient One,
Spirit of Life,
Source of all creation,
Goddess, bright lady of the moon,
God, horned hunter of the sun,
Guardian spirits, Rulers of the elemental realms,
Powers of the stars above and the Earth below,
*You speak to us from the East and the West,
You speak to us from the North and the South,
You call to us from the depths of our being,
We respond with enthusiasm and fervor,
We cry out from Manila to Maui,
We shout from Alaska to Alabama,
We proclaim love from the highest mountain to the deepest ocean.
Our voices must be heard.
We shall not be silent.
Our voices must be heard.*
As we will so mote it be. Blessed be!
