Back to the Future

There are always

possibilities –

on my life’s way

The Truth restores

my heritage and my birthright.future

It’s not searching the unknown past

or finding the recent future.

Awareness yields…

Attentiveness sacrifices…

looking gently, hearing kindly,

speaking softly heals all the time.

Life’s legacy

opens the past to my future.

Thus I realize, what was, can be – 

I make a careful difference

Some lessons learned:

justice without mercy is unjust…

peace without compassion is chaos…

the challenge forward is to change.

Back to the future

is my here now –

I am and I was and I will be.

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
