With all the world seeking to find value
Where is the right place to search? For
The elusiveness of happiness is tamed
Not by the very things that help us live
But in the noticing of our shared soul.
In the place of our soul we have wisdom:
Those that have travelled the path and,
In the time permitted have found words
To nourish the other seekers of today;
Leaving hope that one day newness,
When it dawns, will be seen by the many.
Wrapped in the seekers there is a freedom,
Where, in echoes of majestic eternal words,
Is located a friendship beyond times limit:
That lonely road which never seeks an end
Is the past and future: alive in the now and
Speaking of friendship in our movement.
With our words we create our lives,
With our respect for the wise of all ages
We honour the lives we are living today:
A world without the eternal music of love
Is a place where her value is hard to find.
