Cultivate the land within

The theme of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2011 is  ‘Cultivate the land within’.

Guess what, I have a poem with the same name!

Here is the last section of the poem:

…If you give more attention
to your inner being
if you nourish your mind
at least three times a day

If you cultivate
the land within
planting values
love and compassion

Then the earth
reflected outside
will survive
for as long as we wish to stay
