I am Human. More than anything, I am a human being, a member of the human race. Before gender, or ethnicity, or sexuality, or spirituality, or politics, or any other detail of my individuality, I am Human. I think of the entirety of humanity as my relations. Truth be told, I think of many other species as my relations as well, animals, trees, waters, stones, stars, and the Fae. But this is about my Human relations.
I am an optimist. I believe that the human species is not beyond hope. While we are capable of great violence and darkness, and while many suffer from soul-sickness, and our society as a whole has a great need for healing, I believe that we are also capable of great nobility and compassion. It is my hope to be a healing influence on those humans with whom I interact in this lifetime, my family and my community but, also those whose names I do not know. My Tradition is engaged in the mission of “Re-enchanting the World” and I strive to fulfill that mission in every encounter I have every day.
I hold hope, and faith, and love, and joy, and truth. I hold compassion and I pray for the healing of our species, our society, and our world. May Humanity survive this sickness long enough to evolve to become the more noble version of ourselves, and may our world survive long enough to see us do so. So Mote It Be.
