                    To cultivate your spirit and enhance
                     Your inner life, it’s needful to reflect
                     Upon that vast, mysterious expanse
                     We call our soul, a secret to inspect:

                    What is this essence of our consciousness,
                    That quality which shapes us as we are,
                    The origin of values we profess,
                    Whose health it is our charge to make or mar?

                   Our heart is more than just our body’s core,
                   And seems to be as well our spirit’s seat,

                   Which we may spend a lifetime to explore,
                   A project, though, that few of us complete.

                        Which leads us to believe and hope and yearn
                        We’ll have another chance—and shall return.
