Claim the good and deny the bad
If you stand in front of your elders and your peers and say
I will do such and such
It is part of the biospiritul nature to include your deepest emotions
These emotions transcend your filial boundaries
They are part of the natural order
part of all human kind
Your dedication is not to your past
it is to your future
A natural thought process
The future is an idea from birth
Where do I come from and where am I going?
