Take heart from the ones whose hearts are large,
Whose eyes see with soft glow
And whose hands caress and care.
For they are the ones who know
That they live within a mystery,
On a journey within wondrous lands
Where everything is a marvel
And everything has worth.
Take heart from those who see and care
And adore all that they behold
For they would build and love and feel
And so turn everything to gold.
Take heart from the ones who appreciate
That everything has its place
From sun, moon and mountain
To gnat, flea and worm.
We opened our eyes into a beautiful universe. We came from nothing and will return to nothing. In the meantime we have all this and we take it for granted. It is so wondrous.
There are those who can see that wonder all around us. Those are the ones we should take heart from. They are living.
There are those who would look to build, to make things better, to provide a pleasant word or helping hand. They are the ones we should take heart from. They are worth so much more than the mindless nasty types.
There are those who realise the incredible wonder of every living thing. They see the amazing wonder of our evolution and our place within the spectrum of life. We should take heart from them.
So here’s to the positive forces that live among us!
