Ritual

Before going out into the world,

I mirror-gaze to see what is seen,

and then open the door and go forth.

 

Before engaging with another,

I stop and look intently for them;

and then, in peace I bow discreetly

 

Before encroaching into your space,

I step forward with my arm outstretched;

and then, embrace with my heart kissing.

 

These are my rituals for what is,

they set me up for truth and oneness,

to revel in our community.

 

Yes, I can’t just barge into the zone.

I must give time and space to enter

harmony with the environment.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
