Let not your heart be drawn into sorrow, neither let it fall into the dark regions of hate, but rather strive to enable the wings of a strong spirit to lift it unto the highest reaches of paradise, namely, love of thy fellow man, and all the other creatures of this earth. In comparison, find yourself not lesser or greater than others, but at a different point than they, on a level plane. Know that it takes all the atoms of a rose to make it seem so sweet, and not just those which contribute to its well-adored perfume.
In short, be happy in your life, but not content. Let it not be static, but always push the envelope of where you might take your self. Enhance your soul and life will sparkle with clarity. Shine on, you crazy diamond.
I miss you already.
