Open your eyes to the flaming vision
of the wonder of such a life.
Begin where you are. Now.
If you slip and stumble,
don't spend too much time in anguished regrets
and self-accusations but begin again.
Don't grit your teeth and clench your fists and say,
"I will! I will!" Relax.
Take hands off. Submit yourself to God. . . .
Let life be willed through you.
