Ashley Judd in "Divergent"

with Borders
Kokkyō junjo o mochimasu


Yeah Yah!

It is good to be alive.

It is pleasant to play.

Improve your talents with gainful play.

Don't let your light remain hidden away.

The earth was made for creativity

that you may celebrate your nativity.

There are those who think that because our nature
is human, it has been corrupted by the creation.

We were created for goodness.

We have the capacity to improve.

We had organized for defense, but

the larger organization dispelled us
and sent us into exile.

Now we are part of a larger body.

We have been gathered to learn from experience.
We have been healed from our infirmities. 

Our wounds have been cleansed and dressed.

The stars have been numbered and named
for our happiness in recognition.

Growth is limited by law.

Power is cultivated to correct flaw.

Income inequality will be reduced

by education, economic enhancement,
constitutional amendment
and the prosecution 
of plutocrats.

The lawless have to be prosecuted for crime

for justice with the legal system. The diligent 
will achieve sustainable growth.

Make music for entertainment.

Sing with thanksgiving. 
Dance in jubilation.

The heavens are clothed with clouds

to prepare rain for the earth!

Grass grows to prevent erosion. 
Rocks are arranged for building and drainage.
Trees are cut for construction and production.
Plants are grown to feed with fiber.

This food feeds flocks, herds and people.

Young birds are fed seeds, bugs or worms.

Horses grow strong with grain and exercise.

Body is trained with mind of the right kind.

Pleasure is the principle that trains to avoid pain.

Reward is rendered to those who work for gain.

Liberty works within law for justice and prosperity.
Commerce is regulated for legal tender.

Defense is strengthened 

with diplomatic alliance for trade and travel;
for the knowledge of foreign language and ways.

Peace transcends order with borders, 

but boundaries must be respected.
Law is determined by gravity,
but energy flows within conductors
by direction.

Snow or sand are scattered like ashes

to blanket the earth like cloth.

Weather is controlled by the closeness

of the face of the earth to the sun.

The equator gets more heat because

it is closest. The poles are coldest
because of their distance.

The wind and water flow 

as the earth turns on her axis
in her orbit.

Truth is found by the objective

personal perception of the principles
of life in relation to those discovered
by others. 

Deduction transcends

experience without logic.

Induction uses experiment as a means

by which a hypothesis is tested
to rule out false presumption.

Rhetoric uses over or understatement

to point to that which is believed to be true.

Judgement is formed by reason

that stands the test of time.

Liberty with justice is for all.

It does not belong
to one person, group 
or nation.

Yeah Yah! 


147 Laudate Dominum
1 Hallelujah!
How good it is to sing praises to our God! *
how pleasant it is to honor him with praise!
2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem; *
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted *
and binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars *
and calls them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; *
there is no limit to his wisdom.
6 The Lord lifts up the lowly, *
but casts the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; *
make music to our God upon the harp.
8 He covers the heavens with clouds *
and prepares rain for the earth;
9 He makes grass to grow upon the mountains *
and green plants to serve mankind.
10 He provides food for flocks and herds *
and for the young ravens when they cry.
11 He is not impressed by the might of a horse; *
he has no pleasure in the strength of a man;
12 But the Lord has pleasure in those who fear him, *
in those who await his gracious favor.
13 Worship the Lord, O Jerusalem; *
praise your God, O Zion;
14 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; *
he has blessed your children within you.
15 He has established peace on your borders; *
he satisfies you with the finest wheat.
16 He sends out his command to the earth, *
and his word runs very swiftly.
17 He gives snow like wool; *
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
18 He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; *
who can stand against his cold?
19 He sends forth his word and melts them; *
he blows with his wind, and the waters flow.
20 He declares his word to Jacob, *
his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
21 He has not done so to any other nation; *
to them he has not revealed his judgments.

Shailene Woodley

Your Goodness.

My soul magnifies my goodness.
My spirit rejoices in God, my Savior.

Recognition has been granted

beyond my resources. All generations
will call this blessed.

Ability according to the strength 
of my resources was my weakness.

Capacity has transformed my weakness

into a way to build strength.
Integrity shines as beauty 
for my game.

Mercy is for those who show it for the incarnation

of redemption from servitude. Service without subservience
will be the character identified with my name.

The strength of sanctification has been shown.

The proud have been reprimanded for greed; 
for profit from war and cruel punishment. 

Their aspiration to unchallenged
increase in advantage has been scattered 
as an imagination
in their hearts.

The abusive have been removed from the abuse of power.

The perception of principles has been exalted for objectivity.

The hungry have been filled with gratitude in satisfaction,

while emptiness has been given to the wealthiest
for individual achievement by deceit.

Healthy wholesomeness has been shown 

to our habitation as redemption for the promise 
of prosperity with justice for the posterity
of our ancestors.


Luke 1:46-55

My soul doth magnify the Lord, *
    and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
For he hath regarded *
    the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth *
    all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me, *
    and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him *
    throughout all generations.
He hath showed strength with his arm; *
    he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, *
    and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things, *
    and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy has holpen his servant Israel, *
    as he promised to our forefathers,
    Abraham and his seed for ever.

Modern Style: Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid

the Present
Sonzai o shōhi 

from Isaiah 12:2-6

Is it faith or work that saves?
I will trust in salvation from my Savior.

Leadership is the strength of my defense.

The fortification for my position is instruction
by construction for production, but it is the divine
expression of design in time that saves.

Just as the quenching of thirst produces joy,

gratitude is drawn for the springs of salvation!

When thirst has been slated,

gratitude is manifested, "Thank you 
for the satisfaction from this gratification!"

Sing praises to the Creator 
for joy in this creation!

Water preserves the essence of life!
Bread is the material product of presence
with this essence.

Wine comes from grapes on the vine.
Eat bread. Mix water with wine.
Consume the right amount.
It feels fine!

Let good works be known among the people.

Goodness is made by the divine in time, 
but salvation comes by faith
with the application of mind.

Sing praises for the great things that have been done.

Great things are known in the world around the globe.
This is not something that has been shown to you alone.

Cry aloud, you lovers of life. 

Let your resilience resound 
with profound sound all around. 

The greatness in you reverberates
from the Giver of Life, who yields 
healthy wholesomeness 
for your habitation. 

Bread and Wine

Isaiah 12:2-6

Surely, it is God who saves me; *
  I will trust in him and not be afraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure defense, *
  and he will be my Savior.
Therefore you shall draw water with rejoicing *
  from the springs of salvation.
And on that day you shall say, *
  Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name;
Make his deeds known among the peoples; *
  see that they remember that his Name is exalted.
Sing praises of the Lord, for he has done great things, *
  and this is known in all the world.
Cry aloud, inhabitants of Zion, ring out your joy, *
  for the great one in the midst of you is the Holy One of Israel.

Jessica Jung

for Salvation
Sukui no tame ni utaimasu 

from Canticle 4
The Song of Zachariah

Blessed be the divine intent
for the power of the people 
in the rule of law; for that which
was corrupt in expression finds
redemption in correction.

It has been courage 

in the face of corruption
that has won transformation
for our salvation.

Prophets have spoken

for that which is divine about design 
since the world began; that the economy
should be used by government for people
with respect for legal commerce
in international and domestic trade;
that we should be saved 
from the destitution
of poverty by respect 
for legal liberty; to perform
the oath that was given
to our ancestors; that we
giving only that which is 
necessary for our welfare 
and defense may celebrate 
deliverance with happiness; 
that we having
been delivered from the corruption
of servitude might live our days
with dignity and civility
by the management of our labor.

You will be called the prophet

of the most high. You will face service 
to others without servility;
to give knowledge of salvation
to this generation with respect
for the generations to come;
through the tender mercy of love
by which the dayspring from on high
has delivered us; to give light to those
who sit in darkness due to the threat of death
 by the hand of war or punishment;
to guide our steps into the promise of peace. 

Canticle 4
Song of Zachariah

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, *
for he hath visited and redeemed his people;
And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us *
in the house of his servant David,
As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, *
which have been since the world began:
That we should be saved from our enemies, *
and from the hand of all that hate us;
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers, *
and to remember his holy covenant;
To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham,*
that he would give us,
That we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies *
might serve him without fear,
In holiness and righteousness before him, *
all the days of our life.

And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest, *
for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord
to prepare his ways;
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people *
for the remission of their sins,
Through the tender mercy of our God, *
whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to them that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death, *
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Monica Bellucci

to Shine
Salire a brillare 
Kagayaki ni jōshō

My soul rises for beauty.
Beauty shines for health.

Lead me into leadership.
Teach me the path by design.

Let me not suffer the pain of shame.
I won't let my enemies humiliate me.
Help me to find truth with integrity.

Salvation comes with the promise 
of being saved. Trust abides 
with the Savior.

Let none who look with faith look in vain.
Let the schemes of the treacherous be averted.

Compassion will be remembered.
Love comes from eternity.
It is everlasting.

Redeem me with forgiveness.
Let me forget those things 
that hinder my progress
in redemption.

Atonement requires 
constitutional reparation
as a form of resolve 
to manage responsibility
with respect for rights.

Humility is gracious.
It does not seek to control
others with the threat of death
over the power of life.

Those who don't seek to control
life with violence or cruelty are humble.
The light of life lets love shine for these.

Love is the path to civility.
Faith is the way to faithfulness.

Loyalty is sought in friendship.
Friendship doubles joy and divides sorrow.
Adversity tests the balance.

Family functions with respect.
Community is built with civility.
Government has to represent law.

Humility yields forgiveness 
for redemption. Flaws in the law
have to be corrected by amendment
or the errors of violence and cruelty 
are mass produced.

Who are they who respect
the right to life? They agree to outlaw war
and the death penalty. They agree to respect
civil and human rights. Responsibility has
been chosen for prosperity and posterity. 

Cruelty in punishment has been reduced
by the provision against it in law.

Death from disease has been diminished
by medicine, public sanitation and trash removal.

Healthcare promotes proactive treatment.

Stay healthy. Healing is not required.

Profit from plutocracy will be stopped
by amending the constitution of law.

My eyes are looking 
for profit from redemption;
from trade in legal commerce
and tourism.

Let those who profited from violence 
stop and make reparations. If they refuse, 
let them be corrected by prosecution or suit.

Look upon the misery that was added to adversity
by the story for the glory of war and stand 
opposed to the fiction. 

Look upon those who were defined as enemies
by war. Have mercy on non-combatants and those
who respect the rules for engagement in relation
to defense. 

Terrorism is a crime. Crime has to be prosecuted
in a court of law for verification of the charge.

Belonging to another group however is not a crime.
People have the right to assemble for worship
or for participation in government by petition 
or protest. 

People don't have the right to kill or harm others
to impose punishment for membership
in other groups.

Let integrity in purpose defend my cause.
My hope is set for justice.

Preserve the ethics of morality.
Life lives for those who love.

25 Ad te, Domine, levavi

1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul;
my God, I put my trust in you; *
let me not be humiliated,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
2 Let none who look to you be put to shame; *
let the treacherous be disappointed in their schemes.
3 Show me your ways, O Lord, *
and teach me your paths.
4 Lead me in your truth and teach me, *
for you are the God of my salvation;
in you have I trusted all the day long.
5 Remember, O Lord, your compassion and love, *
for they are from everlasting.
6 Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions; *
remember me according to your love
and for the sake of your goodness, O Lord.
7 Gracious and upright is the Lord; *
therefore he teaches sinners in his way.
8 He guides the humble in doing right *
and teaches his way to the lowly.
9 All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness *
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
10 For your Name's sake, O Lord, *
forgive my sin, for it is great.
11 Who are they who fear the Lord? *
he will teach them the way that they should choose.

12 They shall dwell in prosperity, *
and their offspring shall inherit the land.
13 The Lord is a friend to those who fear him *
and will show them his covenant.
14 My eyes are ever looking to the Lord, *
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
15 Turn to me and have pity on me, *
for I am left alone and in misery.
16 The sorrows of my heart have increased; *
bring me out of my troubles.
17 Look upon my adversity and misery *
and forgive me all my sin.
18 Look upon my enemies, for they are many, *
and they bear a violent hatred against me.
19 Protect my life and deliver me; *
let me not be put to shame, for I have trusted in you.
20 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, *
for my hope has been in you.
21 Deliver Israel, O God, *
out of all his troubles.

Penelope Cruz

Rappelez-vous de courage.
Recuerde coraje.
Yūki o wasurenaide kudasai

Danger is required for courage.

There are promises to keep
despite adversity:
"I will not sleep under the roof 
of my house; nor climb into bed;
my eyes will not close 
nor my eyelids flutter down to defeat
in sleep before I find a resting place 
for the promise of the memory 
of the essential essence
of divine presence."

The ark. We heard that it was fruitful

in the field between the trees in the forest.

Let us go to the dwelling place with love.
Let us rejoice with thanksgiving
for the seat of mercy in judgment.

"Rise O light for life. Rise to your resting place

in the heaven under the roof of our sky. 
You and the mighty ark of your promise will attest
to the bounty of our faith."

Let your people be clothed in celebration.

Let the faithful rejoice with jubilation.

"Do not turn away from the face of the Anointed

who suffered the trials of hardship with courage."

An oath has been sworn for the brave.

It will not be broken in truth.

"The fruit of your body 
will sit upon a throne.

"Your children's children

will not be alone
when they keep the covenant
and the testimony  
that truth condones."

The Leader chooses leadership

as the temper for a place in space.
Love for life will be the home 
for habitation.

"I will dwell here 

for I find delight in the light."

Surely, your provisions will be blessed.
The poor will eat in their houses.

Priests will be adored by the horn of salvation.

The instrument will be played for the people with joy.

Valor will flourish there.

Bravery will be adorned with light
from the lamp for the Anointed.

"Your enemies will have to learn from shame,

but this crown will shine to illuminate time."

132 Memento, Domine

1 Lord, remember David, *
and all the hardships he endured;

2 How he swore an oath to the Lord *
and vowed a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:

3 "I will not come under the roof of my house, *
nor climb up into my bed;

4 I will not allow my eyes to sleep, *
nor let my eyelids slumber;

5 Until I find a place for the Lord, *
a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."

6 "The ark! We heard it was in Ephratah; *
we found it in the fields of Jearim.

7 Let us go to God's dwelling place; *
let us fall upon our knees before his footstool."

8 Arise, O Lord, into your resting-place, *
you and the ark of your strength.

9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; *
let your faithful people sing with joy.

10 For your servant David's sake, *
do not turn away the face of your Anointed.

11 The Lord has sworn an oath to David; *
in truth, he will not break it:

12 "A son, the fruit of your body *
will I set upon your throne.

13 If your children keep my covenant
and my testimonies that I shall teach them, *
their children will sit upon your throne for evermore."

14 For the Lord has chosen Zion; *
he has desired her for his habitation:

15 "This shall be my resting-place for ever; *
here will I dwell, for I delight in her.

16 I will surely bless her provisions, *
and satisfy her poor with bread.

17 I will clothe her priests with salvation, *
and her faithful people will rejoice and sing.

18 There will I make the horn of David flourish; *
I have prepared a lamp for my Anointed.

19 As for his enemies, I will clothe them with shame; *
but as for him, his crown will shine."

Zoe Saldana

Kōfuku no tsuikyū 
ps 16

Defend me, Defender. I take refuge in you.

I have said to the Leadership in the rule of law, 
"You are my Leader, my good above all other."

It is the defense of the right to life 
that makes it worth living.

My delight is for those who defend themselves;
upon those who are noble among the people.

Those who shed human blood for propitiation
will have their troubles multiplied.

Liberty with justice, you are my portion in my cup.
Respect for rights earns my lot.

My boundaries enclose a pleasant place. 
I have good heritage as my legacy.

I will bless the Counselor 
who counsels for goodness.

My heart teaches me to seek justice;
night after night.

I have set moral law
as the objective for my ethics. 

My heart is glad. My spirit rejoices.
My body enjoys the natural measure 
of pleasure for hope.

I will not abandon myself to the grave.
Love will not throw me into the pit.

Your design will show me the path to life.
There is fullness of joy in your presence.

The measure for pleasure is not determined
by pain on any account in any amount. 

Pain is simply a reminder that pleasure 
plays an important part 
in the pursuit of happiness
for the fullness of joy.

16 Conserva me, Domine
1 Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; *
I have said to the Lord, "You are my Lord,
my good above all other."
2 All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, *
upon those who are noble among the people.

3 But those who run after other gods *
shall have their troubles multiplied.
4 Their libations of blood I will not offer, *
nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.

5 O Lord, you are my portion and my cup; *
it is you who uphold my lot.
6 My boundaries enclose a pleasant land; *
indeed, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel; *
my heart teaches me, night after night.
8 I have set the Lord always before me; *
because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.

9 My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices; *
my body also shall rest in hope.
10 For you will not abandon me to the grave, *
nor let your holy one see the Pit.
11 You will show me the path of life; *
in your presence there is fullness of joy,
and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

Danica McKellar

Imi o kōchiku 

Unless the house is built in line
with design in time, labor is wasted.

Unless security is provided for the skelter
of shelters in the city, individual vigil
is wasted for those who keep it.

Each day shines for life. Rising is birth.
Work is youth. Twilight is retirement;
sleep, a dark rest from consciousness.

Youth is a gift that improves views
about the news and what we choose.

Marriage requires knowledge of self
in another guise for the wise. Where
was I when I would have said or
will I be there later instead?

Happy are those who use logic
for reason. Statements are the focus
for meaning in conversation. Character
is a component in communication,
but personal attack does not produce
a test for the statements.

Only a hypothesis that is subjected
to experiment by the scientific method
can be considered a product of
experimental science.

Whoever uses reason will not lack
for something to test even when
confrontation seeks to close down
the consideration of production.

Clare Kramer

Eikō o kanjimasu 

The earth orbits the sun in the solar system
in our place in space among the galaxies of the universe.

The world is all that lies between the earth and sky.

We are the people who dwell therein.

The earth was fashioned with seas.

The currents in the water and air
contrast the solid ground beneath our feet.

"Who cannot ascend the hill to see height?

Let her know that she has the right."

"All those who believe in the right to life;

who have not pledged themselves to falsehood,
who clean their bodies and mind for a pure heart."

They will receive blessings from life;

reward from the Author of design.

Such is the generation of those who feel love;

who seek the face that authored mind.

Lift up your heads for safety amidst risk.

Raise them high to look for the lasting doors.
Let the glory of light shine for your mind.

Who made the sight that cannot be seen? 

The Maker of life is the glory of this sight.

24 Domini est terra

1 The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it, *
the world and all who dwell therein.

2 For it is he who founded it upon the seas *
and made it firm upon the rivers of the deep.

3 "Who can ascend the hill of the Lord? *
and who can stand in his holy place?"

4 "Those who have clean hands and a pure heart, *
who have not pledged themselves to falsehood,
nor sworn by what is a fraud.

5 They shall receive a blessing from the Lord *
and a just reward from the God of their salvation."

6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, *
of those who seek your face, O God of Jacob.

7 Lift up your heads, O gates;
lift them high, O everlasting doors; *
and the King of glory shall come in.

8 "Who is this King of glory?" *
"The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, mighty in battle."

9 Lift up your heads, O gates;
lift them high, O everlasting doors; *
and the King of glory shall come in.

10 "Who is he, this King of glory?" *
"The Lord of hosts,
he is the King of glory."

Abby Sciuto by Pauley Perrette
Super Sciuto Scientific Crime Fighter!

Shōsan o agemasu
I will count my blessings.
I will raise praise for halcyon days.

I will celebrate the divine in design.
Let the observant hear with a sigh.

Proclaim with me the greatness of humility.
Let us exalt in testing statements together.

I sought truth. Measure in understanding was given.
I was delivered from the terror of great error.

Look upon the joy of discovery and be radiant.
Don’t let erroneous prediction get you down.

Learning was the aim for making a statement 
to be tested; not forming a judgment prior to the trial.

The angel’s angle is gratitude for flight to insight.
Deliverance from misconception is our direction.

Taste and see that truth is good.
Happy are those who seek it.

Be the best that you can be 
without severity or laxity.

Even young lions suffer hunger for lack of prey to attack.
Those who look to learn however, suffer no want for 
the desire to reach higher.

Come people. Listen to me. You will learn to seek truth
to find measure in understanding.

Who among you loves life?
Who does not desire long life 
with prosperity for posterity?

Seek to speak with alacrity
for posterity. Choose your words.
Give them flight like birds.

Turn from evil. Do good. 
Seek peace. Pursue it.

Justice lives for those who live 
and love in accordance with law.

Impartiality is impartial for equity.
Objectivity is objective to deter discrimination.

The eagle cries before he flies from the skies
to select a meal for consumption. 

He is not predatory for profit
from killing his own kind. 

Compassion hears the cry of hunger
and acts to alleviate the suffering.

Renewed mind seeks to fix the broken heart.
Fresh spirit renews life for those who were crushed.

A sober mind reflects on many troubles,
but adapts to the situation for improvement.

Deliverance will preserve safety
to prevent bones from being broken.

Death will not be used as a penalty
for those who were falsely convicted.

Restricted time will be the punishment
for those who were guilty of crime.

Civility for civilization will be ransomed.
Those who respect rights will not be guilty.

34 Benedicam Dominum

1 I will bless the Lord at all times; *
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.

2 I will glory in the Lord; *
let the humble hear and rejoice.

3 Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord; *
let us exalt his Name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me *
and delivered me out of all my terror.

5 Look upon him and be radiant, *
and let not your faces be ashamed.

6 I called in my affliction and the Lord heard me *
and saved me from all my troubles.

7 The angel of the Lord encompasses those who fear him, *
and he will deliver them.

8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; *
happy are they who trust in him!

9 Fear the Lord, you that are his saints, *
for those who fear him lack nothing.

10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, *
but those who seek the Lord lack nothing that is good.

11 Come, children, and listen to me; *
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 Who among you loves life *
and desires long life to enjoy prosperity?

13 Keep your tongue from evil-speaking *
and your lips from lying words.

14 Turn from evil and do good; *
seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, *
and his ears are open to their cry.

16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, *
to root out the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry, and the Lord hears them *
and delivers them from all their troubles.

18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted *
and will save those whose spirits are crushed.

19 Many are the troubles of the righteous, *
but the Lord will deliver him out of them all.

20 He will keep safe all his bones; *
not one of them shall be broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked, *
and those who hate the righteous will be punished.

22 The Lord ransoms the life of his servants, *
and none will be punished who trust in him.

Alexa Vega and Carlos Pena

Kaizen o tassei


The design of the universe is infused
with the influence of the Designer.

The universe is not God, yet intervention is achieved
by faith regarding goodness by design.

I thought that if I could just touch
the essence of my face
I could fix the brokenness inside.

Outside it’s like I’m someone else;
looking for the source of sound
from all around my being.

I thought that If I could just look around inside,
I'd leave the search taking nothing but the memory
of the knowledge of that which was found in me.

I came to believe that I needed to
celebrate the evidence of divine energy.

Improvement depends upon the right understanding
of the consistency in that which is constant
and the randomness in that which is variable.

The understanding of constancy
is based on the stability of substance.

Nothing comes from nothing.
Neither does anything return
to being nothing.

The building is built upon the strength of the foundation.
Knowledge about variability extends from the random assembly of matter.

Change comes from cause.

Cause is the catalyst for rearrangment.

Find cause to define solution.

The great expanse of sea has living things
too numerous to number; creatures both
small and large.

There go the minnows.
There is the whale
that was made
for the ‘tale’ of it.

There are the ships
fighting the currents
on course for the destiny
of their destination.

All of them look to providence
for food in due season.

Providence provides.
They gather it.

Design is discovered.
They are filled with good things.

When provision is not found,
fear is formed.

When death occurs,
life is taken.

Spirit is released.
Soul slips away.

Matter changes form.
The source of life
sends forth spirit.

Creation happens.
The face of the earth
is renewed, but reparation
is due for redemption
when life is taken by force.

May the glory of life endure.
May people rejoice in goodness by design.

Let the earth tremble with joy!
Let the volcano explode with delight!

I will sing with faith as long as I live;
I will praise life while I have being.

May these words be pleasing to you:

Rejoice in the precious presence
of Divine Essence!

Yea Yah!

Jiyū o kyōju suru

How long will you wait?
Be gracious with your love.

Who feels the power of your presence?
Who loves the feeling of your power?

Value our time
that we may use our hearts for wisdom.

Be kind from the start of your day;
so we may be glad all the days of our life.

Be glad by the measure of the days
in which we were afflicted and the years
in which we suffered adversity.

Show the work of love to all;
your radiance to our children.

May your grace be with us
with the fruit of our labor
and the products of our love.

90 Domine, refugium
11 Who regards the power of your wrath? *
who rightly fears your indignation?
12 So teach us to number our days *
that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.

13 Return, O Lord; how long will you tarry? *
be gracious to your servants.

14 Satisfy us by your loving-kindness in the morning; *
so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.

15 Make us glad by the measure of the days that you afflicted us *
and the years in which we suffered adversity.

16 Show your servants your works *
and your splendor to their children.

17 May the graciousness of the Lord our God be upon us; *
prosper the work of our hands;
prosper our handiwork.
