Living Into the Great Paradox,
I strive toward my vision,
while accepting gratefully whatever life serves up.
I work to bring about my vision of the future,
which is based on my value system of what is right,
just, noble, compassionate, generous, humane, peaceful, and loving.

is based on only my opinions and prejudices,
and I honor all points of view and value systems,
no matter how different from my own.
