just enjoying how beautiful
just sitting doing nothing is,
how relaxing, how restful.

you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.

You will become a child again, reborn.

you must be a person whose forgiveness matters.

you have to believe that your future matters.
Before you can build positive habits of resolve and commitment,
before you can begin to live into the Japanese proverb,
"Fall seven times, stand up eight,"
you must believe that your life matters.
Before you can celebrate your life, you must Honor it.
And, before you can feel unity with,
and Honor toward, Spirit and all creation,
you must Honor yourself to feel worthy of that unity.
