Leap

Change takes a leap, not a jump –

It’s a heartfelt process.

 

My reflection tells the tale –

my neighbor’s health,

my planet’s well-being,

my cosmos’ animation.

 

That is who I am.

My whole is greater

than the sum of my parts

being one with differences creates harmony

 

I am what I say –

my “yes” must be “yes”

my “no” must be “no”

I must do and not just try.

 

Every voice has a place

Every insight needs an ear

Every answer questions

Every question confirms hope.

 

Practice makes the leap possible

submissive kindness

tender mercy

dynamic compassion

 

My heartfelt leap makes us one

Alone together we are beloved

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
