Ordinary life extraordinary ways
Filled with passion living ablaze
Honoring commitments caring for others
Those around are sisters brothers

No need notoriety or fame
Togetherness warmth without shame
Life simple easy content
Always sure you pay the rent

No majesty bright lights you as star
Equanimity happy where you are
Solid support for your whims
Earthly pride and wide grins

Blessings reach inside you
Soft tenderness comforts when blue
Children’s voices sanctify the day
All platitudes melt away

No pretensions humble heart mind
Aspirations nowhere to find
Wisdom carried sustains everyday
Peace your presence so dance and play

What’s really important to you?

What’s the gap between here and where you want to be,
and how can you bridge it now?
