Karmacology: Mindful Living, Sacred Practice

In the Time of Your Life, Live

“In the time of your life, live . . . seek goodness everywhere, and when it is found, bring it out of its hiding-place and let it be free and unashamed. . . Discover in all things that which shines and is beyond corruption. Encourage virtue in whatever heart it may have been driven into secrecy and sorrow by the shame and terror of the world. Ignore the obvious, for it is unworthy of the clear eye and the kindly heart. Be the inferior of no man nor of any man be the superior. . . In the time of your life, live – so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.”
-- William Saroyan, playwright’s note appended to “The Time of Your Life”
