Let it flow, your truth and your passion, delight.

Forgive quickly, being slow to anger, peace.

In times of trouble, be reassured, look up.

In times of joy, count your blessings, give thanks.

Life is a blessing, appreciate it all.

Compassion to all, is fair, live and let live.

Remove any judgment, it reflects on you.

Humble yourself, learn to tame ego and pride.

Don’t let jealousy, ruin you or your life.

Don’t dwell on the past or live in the future.

Love one another, in truth and honesty.
