"Fully Alive"

Fully Human person 
is in deep and meaningful contact
with the world outside of him.
He not only listens to himself,
but to the voices of his world.
The breadth of his own individual experience
is infinitely multiplied through a
sensitive empathy with others.
He suffers with the suffering,
 rejoices with the joyful
He is born again
in every Springtime,
feels the impact of the great Mysteries
of Life:
Birth, Growth, Love, Suffering,
His Heart skips along 
with the "young lovers,"
and he knows something of the exhilaration
that is in them.
He also knows the ghetto's philosophy
of despair,
the Loneliness of Suffering 
without relief,
and the Bell Never Tolls
without tolling 
in some strange way
for him.
