Each by each, I look at the objects on the altar.
Every single object is a symbol representing a part of my life.
As the incense burns under the dimmed light, my spirit awakens.
What have I done to bring Love into my Life?
Was I lazy at work or did I go beyond my expectations?
What have I learned? What do I know?
What have I taught?
Did I perform well as a member of this family?
Was I an integral part of society?
Did I try to improve my health?
The incense burns out as I look at the top of the altar.
A question remains.
For all the actions and non-actions of the day,
With more or less illusions still to fade away...
What was the outcome? Am I closer to Tao?
