it is right for us to respect and safeguard
every living creature, for they are one with us.
we are just different aspects of a single being.
we may feel we are dissimilar,
but in essence we are the same
with universal beliefs and values.
may the perfection of our true selves
blossom within us as we
let go of hypocrisy and jealousy,
bring forth equanimity and wisdom
to know patience and unity.
