A few of the underlying principles informing and guiding activities and programs.
Love of Nature — Deep and abiding reverence for the mothering principle. Connect with Nature, then love flows, then giving naturally follows, as does harmony among people. It all starts here.
Love what is — This is the ultimate practice, to work with reality. To see the utter and total perfection of the moment. If the moment is perfect, then nothing is lacking and there are no problems to be solved. This does not mean we turn cold to suffering—not at all—but helps check the desire of the ego to fix perceived wrongs.
You are that — You are already what you seek to be. The greatest gift we can give another human being is to help them realize they are the gift they've been waiting for—they have the answers, the power, the ability. This is particularly effective for mitigating "handout mentality" that can be found in poverty situations where power can be given away to the hope of a savior or better off other.
Service before self — You can trace most human misery and struggle to the false belief that I must provide for myself. This belief is rooted in a disconnect from Nature, and causes competition, conflict, and war and all manners of disease. It is the source of effort and stress—and the ego itself. When you serve Nature and her creations before your own self, you find your genuine needs (vs. wants) become automatically taken care of and there never again is a reason to worry.
Simple living, high thinking — What we have now is complicated living and low thinking—to what result? Man's material needs are basic, his inner needs for meaning and fulfillment are far greater. This is the formula to end urban migration and a healthy recipe for anybody living in poverty—while material resources can be shackled, there is no shackle on the level of your thought.
Sadhana — Everything is an outflow of a collective internal journey of Self. Partners, beneficiaries, donors, and volunteers all converge at this point, at the right time and place, and all receive something personal needed in their mutual exchange of giving. An element of the sacred is held in all activities and encouraged individually.
