That my highest ambition
-and yes I seek regularly to realize for myself just what this is-
my highest ambition is to be what I already am.
All my dreams and vision and hopes
all my strivings and seekings and going-ons
all aim at this same
thanks to Thomas Merton
and the way in which he has shown me in
I know that I will never fulfill my obligation to surpass
myself unless I first accept myself.
Maybe sometimes, maybe every time,
it is a human being realizing just this.
It is the very thing, the very moment, all is accomplished
The truth of trueness.
Have I already surpassed myself when I accept myself fully in this right way?
The very realization is the stepping-stone to the me that is above me.
I must become myself, and stop living beside myself.
In spite of myself.
There I go; I have already moved on~
