choices

In my private world
I make choices to train well
I am what I think
 
What I do daily
To live a genuine life
Is most important
 
I will pursue character
Integrity will be first
Maturity is my goal
I will seek to serve
 
“Become a person who pursues character before success, integrity before popularity, maturity before growth and service to others before accomplishment in your own life.”  Joshua Choonmin Kang

the genuine life

June 11, 2009

My life is like a plant
I need to water it well
And pull the weeds out each day
Then it will flourish
 
I want my roots to grow deep
I want my soul to drink deeply
I want to bear the fruit of
Wisdom, love and peace
 
Love means clean inside
Being pure and transparent
Focused on loving
A light to the world
 
What I do alone
To live the genuine life
Is most important
 
In my private world
I make choices to train well
I am what I think
 
I will pursue character
Integrity will be first
Maturity is my goal
I will seek to serve
