Last year I hit upon a poem when I was waiting for the bus. I have outlined these (as) my ideals of life. Although I myself am very far from attaining these ideals, I think you may profit by the poem.
Ideals of Life
To see the cosmos in a flower;
To live Eternity in an hour;
To find the Transcendent in the ordinary,
|John C.H. Wu|
To drink the Tao in the cup of duty;
To realize that goodness is beauty.
To taste peace in activity,
And joy in humility,
To meet Christ in your neighbor,
To feel refreshed in labor.
To be sober and drunk at the same time--
Sublimely human and humanly sublime.
Thanks John! You have a way with words.
