Philip Claude Andermann
To "move the earth" would be
to bring about robust peace and fulfillment
throughout the planet;
the fulcum would be
the conviction that all human and nonhuman beings
possess a highest potential
for wisdom, courage and compassion
that we could might dub "human revolution"
the lever would be
verbal and nonverbal dialogue with others
in our behavior, our own "human revolution,"
extending our hearts like a lever
and in such dialogue putting it,our lives, on the line,
on faith in that fulcrum;
while the place to stand would be
exactly wherever we are at this moment,
mindfully putting our all into this
infinite point of Here and Now.
