The Quest

When we glean a sense of the enduring truths--
love, beauty, integrity, excellence among them--
we build a granite foundation for our quest.
Cynics and cowards deride these ideals;
only the valiant dare attempt this path.

The quest for authenticity begins
at the hub of our being.
We dream of transcending the transitory;
without glimpses from this sacred core,
transcendence is impossible.

Lending meaning and purpose, spiritual dimensions
nurture this winding journey, are essential
for well-being, toward becoming authentic.
The harmony of this path is its rapture
and the aura of the soul.
