Coexistence Education
Poem Based on a Global Ethic


Survival

A community of all beings, interdependent, respectful
Preserving Earth, the air, the water, and the soil
Manifesting responsibility and individuality,
Understanding that failure to do so has consequences

Treating others as we wish to be treated
Committed to respect, dignity, and individuality
Developing an aptitude for forgiveness
Learning from the past and renouncing hate

Narrowing the differences for world community
Humankind is our family
Practicing kindness, generosity, serving others
Honoring the children, the aged, the poor, the suffering

Equal among equals, sexual and moral
Putting behind us all forms of domination or abuse
Commitment to non-violence, justice, and peace
Achieving true social justice and economic order

Speaking truthfully with companion
Moving beyond greed for power, money, and consumption
The consciousness of individuals must change
Before Earth can be changed

Discipline the mind by meditation, prayer, or positive thought
All are invited to share the experience of survival.
