Why are you afraid? Why do you panic?

Eagerly and with purpose, your soul plunged downward to live in an earthly realm,
to enwrap herself in a body of flesh and blood.

What emboldened her? What drew her to squeeze her unbounded light
into the straitjacket of time and space?

It was neither fear, nor dread, nor panic.
It was the knowledge that here below
is a beauty the highest of angels cannot touch.

Care for yourself, for your family, for your fellow human beings and our lovely planet earth,
not out of fear, nor from distress,

but out of love and awe
for the beauty within
that we came to uncover.
