to replace fossil fuels with clean and renewable energy,
to use wisely power of the sun, wind, water, and the Earth,
to tax carbon emissions in order to stabilize the climate,
to tax excessive wealth exploited from working people,
to provide education and health care for all people,
to nurture democracy by respecting human rights,
to establish world law, peace, and universal justice,
to treat every person as a member of the human family,
to act nonviolently to reform social and political wrongs,
to make sure all people have shelter and clean water,
to live gently on the Earth in harmony with Nature,
to create responsibly by considering the good of all,
to find peace by self-awareness, meditation, and prayer,
to respect ethnic, national, religious, & cultural differences,
to be compassionate toward those in need of help,
to be grateful for the sharing of wealth, talent, & abilities,
to love everyone regardless of personal differences,
to be honest, caring, and open with each other,
to use wisdom from experience of what works best,
to be courageous in facing difficult challenges,
to be forgiving of those who are willing to reform,
to be free of prejudice, contempt, greed, and arrogance,
to study, learn, and teach what is beneficial,
to preserve our mother Earth for future generations,
to live simply and share with the human community,
and to be friendly with everyone we meet.
