If we face our problems directly and
investigate what is restraining or pressuring us,
we might begin to bring balance into our lives.
No matter what direction we look,
north, south, east, or west,
we find problems.
Yet each direction possess its own distinctive
beauty, knowledge, and strength.
If we could assemble this knowledge,
share this beauty, and
combine these strengths,
wholesomeness could be created.
If we took responsibility
to develop harmony
among all forms of life on the planet,
we could make a tremendous difference.
