Cosmology

Step 9: We make a continuously mindful effort to increase life-enhancing thoughts, attitudes and actions.

Principle: Justice

We move into action. We become an active part of the healing of the planet. Many will discover the giving of ourselves was what we longed for all our lives. We become filled with the marvelous power of hope. We join others in the great work of renewing the Earth and we begin to experience community again.
