From the east, house of light
may wisdom dawn in us
so we may see all things in clarity;

From the north, house of the night
may wisdom ripen in us
so we may know all from within;

From the west, house of transformation
may wisdom be transformed into right action
so we may do what must be done;

From the south, house of the eternal sun
may right action reap the harvest
so we may enjoy the fruits of planetary being;

From above, house of heaven
where star people and ancestors gather
may their blessings come to us now;

From below, house of Earth
may the heartbeat of her crystal core
bless us with harmonies to end all war;

From the center, galactic source
which is everywhere at once
may everything be known
as the light of mutual love;

All hail the harmony of mind and nature.
