Tenets of Life


Look to see the danger
But avoid the confusion;
Look to see the spontaneity
But beware of the action.

Look to decipher scary info
But adhere to healthy thoughts;
Look to renew the mind
But maintain a loving heart.

Strive for success
But endeavor to be genuine;
Strive for happiness
But endeavor to be kind.

Share your views
But be fair always;
Be firm in what you believe
But be open minded on issues.

Be conscious of the drift
But don't be misguided;
Be aware of the highlights of the world
But focus on the Redeemer.

Encourage positive thinking
But be aware of the negatives;
Speak to the heavens
But speak life always.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
