Exploring Deep Time and Infinite Relatedness -- Seeing with new eyes, and feeling with a new heart, my life connected to and empowered by infinite ancestors (the history of all life), infinite present kin of all peoples and all creatures, and infinite descendants, Future Beings, the future of all Life. What we care about deeply fills us with its power and cares acts through us.

You could think of this step as gathering strength to continue our double-stranded journey of personal development and transformational action. As we open to receive the blessings of all our ancestors in the tree of life, and to receive the blessings of all the people and creatures yet to be born, we find the strength to defend the web of life in the present, which contains within it the future of all life on Planet Earth.
