A Hiking Prayer
Baltimore Area Council
Master of the Universe
Grant me the ability to be alone;
May it be my custom to go outdoors each day
Among the trees and grass, among all living things.
And there may I be alone, and enter into prayer,
To talk with the One to whom I belong.
May I express there everything in my heart,
And may all of the foliage of the field,
All grasses trees and plants,
May they all awake at my coming,
To send the powers of their life into the words of my prayer
So that my prayer and speech are made whole
Through the life and the spirit of all growing things,
Which are made as one by their Transcendent Source.
--Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav (1772-1811)
A Nature Minute
San Gabriel Valley, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils
I am part of Nature.
I am part of everything that lives.
I am bound together with all living things
in air, in land, in water.
My life depends upon Nature, upon its balance,
upon its resources and upon the continuity of both.
To destroy them is to destroy yourself.
As a member of the human race,
I am responsible for its survival.
I am a part of Nature, and I will not destroy it.
