I Believe

I have been experiencing an instinctual drive to develop a statement of faith, a statement of my core beliefs, an expression of my world view.

I find it easy to identify some of my core beliefs but difficult to compose them into a concise poetic form. Substance without form is weak but form without substance is abhorrent. So, here's some of the substance. Perhaps the full substance and mature form will develop in the future.

I believe life is a gift. The greatest act of worship is to enjoy the gift of life with gratitude and reverence. Enjoying life is possible by balancing work and play, self and others.

I believe I alone am responsible for how I use or abuse my gift. Happiness, inner peace and contentment are choices that can be developed into an art. Who I am and who I am becoming are more important than what I have done and what I do.

I believe the universe exhibits harmony and integrity. My life, my beliefs, my values and my actions should embody integrity and harmony. Integrity and harmony are made possible by living with deliberateness and simplicity.

I believe creation is evolving. I must be open to life's evolution by living in the present open to all people and new experiences. I must be prepared to release the past and not fear the future.
