Be Like the Sky

Be like the sky,
embrace all the colors of living
and set the world ablaze with your light.

Be like the river, flow gently
with your tenderly powerful current
and soften everyone you meet.

Be like the flower,
open up and diffuse
your sweetest fragrance
despite the thorns.

Be like the leaf, love yourself enough
to nourish and pamper yourself
with the radiant sunshine of life.

But most importantly, be yourself —
be awake and alert in a world
filled with ethereal dust and essence
waiting to come alive and teach you
the true meaning of life.
