Innerweave: The Wholeness Story
By Wil Alexander, PhD, Professor of family medicine, School of Medicine


Wil Alexander, PhD
Years ago I happened on a bit of old poetry, a classic by the poet Kaladasa. A line or two of the poem surfaced somewhere near my amygdala this week and I had no idea where to find it in my files, now frozen assets from little use. So why not Google it, but with little faith. Sure enough there it came with lots of similar items around it on old poetry. For your future contemplation, think about these lines:
 
“Look to this day:
For it is life the very life of life
In its brief course
Lie all the verities of your existence.
The bliss of growth
The glory of action,
The splendor of achievement
Are but the experiences of time.
 
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived, makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day:
Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!”
 
Live well this day for God!
