Seek only to know the moment

And treasure its fleeting essence.

Life itself is as closed as a bubble

And fragile as skin.

Pass this moment on to the next.

Yeld nothing to chance.

Build upon experiences

Which illuminate the senses,

And provoke study.

Give consideration to your gift,

For each of us

Possess a priceless treasure.

Advance your share

For the benefit of everyone,

For the within this moment

The opportunity is present.

Do life, not self.

Give and love,

Because abundance is to be shared,

And this the simplest act of love

Is within your gift.
