I am the heat of your hearth on the cold winter nights, the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun, and my fruits are refreshing draughts quenching your thirst as you journey on.
 
I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table, the bed on which you lie, and the timber that builds your boat.
 
I am the handle of your hope, the door of your homestead, the wood of your cradle, and the shell of your coffin.
 
I am the bread of kindness and the flower of beauty. If you love me as I deserve, defend me against the fools.

The above prayer is reproduced from the August 2016 edition of “The Aquarian Theosophist”, page five.
