The Depths of the Soul
When we approach excellence
we encounter wisdom:
from wisdom, kindness blossoms;
with it come empathy, grace, and love.
These reach toward the the highest ethic.
When we follow this path--living fully and well,
moving toward self-realization and contentment--
we come to understand that our individual selves
are not the final meaning of our Being.
With these first steps,
we already stand at the mid-point of our way.
Working toward the highest good,
pains and sufferings that happen
along the way can be transmuted into joy.
Coming face-to-face with our
flaws and perfections, we touch the depths of our soul.
