What are the Eight Tasks of Life?
Our task is to continually
seek the truth
not just to listen to others
or be influenced by popular opinion.
Our task is to listen
to what is deep within us
not to follow the crowd
or miss the real conversations.
Our task is to live
the life given to us
in full without reservation, without excuses
without blinkers each day.
Our task is to become
all that we should be,
to be our own person, there for others,
the helper and peace builder.
Our task is to uncover
and use our gifts and skills to help others
not to build wealth
or to become important.
Our task is to set
our own course and not be buffeted
by events and activities around us
or what pleases others.
Our task is to reach out
to all others, especially those who are hungry
and those who ask for our help
in any way today.
Our task is to love,
to be a source of encouragement and a guide
so that we all may become
what we can be.
