The questions we ask make the answers we get.
So, we must pay attention and listen first.
Being ruled by the numbers, misses ourselves.
Calculated assessment is meaningless
Rain measured in volume and duration
makes life an endless series of droughts and floods.
Soaked by the rain and absorbing its wetness,
be filled with life as we share being blessed.
Work reckoned by earnings, hours, and title
makes life a servile drudgery without joy.
Humpday and Friday are opportunities
to enhance the community with our presence.
Trees judged by height and girth of branches and trunk
makes life a process of selfish timbering.
Following their lead, embrace the breath of God,
thereby know from whence we came and where we go.
Home compared in square foot and number of rooms
makes life futile competition with next door.
Homemade completes all for one and one for all.
Simple harmony treasures love of neighbor.
