The Power to Shape 

Should you be faced with indecision, let decorum give way to duty
For it is from a lofty sense of responsibility that the mightiest energy springs
And the more you give, the more you’ll keep
Since the act of enriching is what affords the soul its peace

Be as the light that transfigures morning dew-drops into diamonds
And not like the veiled hoard of relics stored at a free port
With valuable antiques and all sorts of commoditised human efforts
Cold and concealed creations whose lifeblood has been drained by the siphons of commerce
So-called art that is completely divorced from the intent which birthed it
And is of no benefit whatsoever to mankind

Remember, the quality and impact of influence corresponds to the character of one who exercises such power to shape…
And what’s not revealed to the eyes of the masses cannot possibly move hearts, let alone shift consciousness

  2. Duty calls, but what to do first? Maybe sort through all that clutter of antiques and treasures collecting dust and in the way of other treasures. Export what is no longer used or useful. Minimize. Simplify. That is my duty today.
