We are attendants at the wake of the old way, and each of us –
through our actions, our thoughts, our work and relationships –
is midwifing a new world into existence.
This is our destiny, our meaning, our purpose,
and when we come to our days with this awareness,
when we sense the oak in the acorn of our beings,
then we will have the energy to move mountains and shift the tides.
— Jan Phillips, No Ordinary Time
