If we would finally recognize that economic rights are human rights, and work to create a society that provides them. This isn’t some utopian fantasy; this is democracy as we should know it.

May it be beautiful before me.
May it be beautiful behind me.
May it be beautiful below me.
May it be beautiful above me.
May it be beautiful all around me.

Above and below me hovers the beautiful
I am surrounded by it
I am immersed in it

The mountains, I become part of it
The herbs, the fir tree, I become part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters,
I become part of it.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen
I become part of it.

From the doorway of rainbow,
The path out of which is the rainbow,
The rainbow passed out with me,
The rainbow rose up with me.
Through the middle of broad fields,
The rainbow returned with me

With the rainbow hanging high over your head, come to us soaring.

With beauty before me
With beauty behind me
With beauty above me
With beauty below me
With beauty all around me

It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.
