House of the Lord (Psalm 15)

My Lady,

   Who may live in the House of Love?

   Who may dwell in your Presence?

Those who walk in your Way,

   and who stand for what is right and good.

Those who speak the Truth from their heart,

   and have no deception in their action.

Those who put up with and take care of the Stranger,

   and listen carefully to their neighbor.

Those who honor the Spirit of truth and goodness,

   and turn away from the willful and arrogant

Those who practice Companionship,

   even when it hurts.

Those who do Good and expect nothing in return,

   and do not speak or listen out of turn.

Those who can hold the Tension of

   of longing faith, impetuous hope,

   and burning love.

My Lady,

   I live in the house

   and dwell with you.

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
