And how will I do this?
Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.

I will love the light for it shows me the way;
yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.

yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
