Peace for all, all for peace.
I - right now - am right here
Not knowledge, but feelings
Not virtual, but real
Not tomorrow, but now
Not assertion, but love
Not the public, but you
All is one
along the roots of the heart
Only one life
A burning life
Overflowing power to live
Focus of soul
A simple powerfulness
Line of soul
Sign of heaven
I - right now - am here
I - right now - love
(Love and Free, Ayumi Takahashi (eng. translation) )
I believe that life is only so long, and there's no reason why we can't each grow to love and respect each other. My only goal in life is to see the best in everyone that I meet, and to allow others to bring out the best in me!
