Wherever You Go, Go With All Your Heart

(Image: Mantraband)

WHEREVER you go, go with all your heart,
Take flight, surrender, say hello, stay present,
Why fret, why fear, all you need is just to start.

Endeavors with no heart tend to fall apart—
That’s precisely what Confucius meant:
Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

The journey of a thousand miles calls for one art,
that our first step rises up like the main event,
Why stall, why wait, all you need is just to start.

All great journeys aren’t forged just with the heart,
Some Herculean courage in us must be spent,
Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

The perfectionist always lives for a fresh start:
Nothing’s right, she cries, let’s reinvent!
Why brood, why whine, come on, just start!

Life’s short, it doesn’t have to be a work of art!
It’s a river, an oyster, a continent.
Wherever you go, go with all your heart,
Why wait the brooding hours, let’s just start!

Wherever You Go, Go With All Your Heart
(Homage to Confucius)
