Five Essentials of Life


Five Essentials of Life

One – The Word is the Universal Spirit

Causing everything to exist

And this Word forms the basis

Of the world’s religions

Two – The breath or wind is of God,

Making it possible for us to be alive

It fills the ecosystem.

Three – The sun is like a ball of fire

Suppling energy, evaporating water,

Determining the seasons,

And causes storms on the earth

Four – The earth consists of matter

Through which all animate,

And inanimate things are composed

Five – All matter consists of water.

Oceans, rivers, and streams

Are replenished by the rains, and snowstorms

From the heavens above

“Gracious Provider, help us to appreciate these gifts to mankind.  Guide us to use your blessings wisely.”
