This world is splendid enough for me today.
Everywhere I look, there is splendor and magic.
Where am I when I miss this,
when I walk by this deep and quiet beauty
without even noticing?
Today I will consciously cultivate
a state of mind that sees;
an openness to life.
I will do what I need to do
by getting enough rest, good food,
quiet and exercise so that
I do not have to spend my life
recuperating from the day before.
I will take proper care of myself
so that I can see and appreciate beauty.
Ignoring myself is not selfless.
I am as important as anyone else.
I will look after myself.
.....If my soul could get away from this so-called prison,
be granted all the list of attributes
generally bestowed on spirits,
my first ramble on spirit-wings
would not be among the volcanoes of the moon.
Nor should I follow the sunbeams
to their sources in the sun.
I should hover about the beauty
of our own good star.
And I should go to the very center
of our globe and read
the whole splendid page from the beginning.
