I devote my entire existence to bettering the quality of life on planet earth by loving all people as members of my family; to demonstrating the Presence of God in all by respecting and loving the environment, all plants, animals and minerals therein; and teaching not by words but by example, spreading peace, love, and truth wherever I go on my life’s journey.
