Helping Mom with the dishes,

Helping Dad with the lawn,

Helping friends with homework,

Strangers with directions–little things help our good heart to grow.


A healthy routine: early to bed, early to rise, a bit of exercise;

Good food, honest work–work that helps our world–

Eventually all the good things we do make us a naturally good person,

One who doesn’t need to think about doing good but who naturally does good;


As we become this person, more and more we are not only useful but happy,

Because our kindness increases our love and also

Our kindness increases the love others give us,

The appreciation,

And love becomes Love, universal, overflowing;

And Love is Joy–never beginning, never ending,

We experience ourself as Self and our love and usefulness

As Love That is Joy–as all there is,

All there is.
