The reservoir of Life’s tremendous power,
When used appropriately to flower,
Is the fruition of Life’s innate desire;
Its misuse will destroy creation’s supreme blueprint.
When the focus of your deepest inspiration,
Gets a taste of the congeniality of your talent,
Currents of joy will spring out like nuclear radiation.
If you desire to express yourself,
Using the gifts of Nature
Turn all haphazard effort into one steady current,
And move on fearlessly like a powerful river,
Flowing without caring about the obstructions;
The sea is eagerly waiting for you
No power on this planet can ever stop you!
