Well, I don't know what will happen now.
We've got some difficult days ahead.
But it doesn't matter with me now.
Because I've been to the mountaintop.
And I don't mind. Like any man,
I would like to live a long life.
Longevity has its place.
But I'm not concerned about that now.
I just want to do God's will.
And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.
And I've looked over.
And I've seen the promised land.
I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight, that we,
as a people, will get to the promised land.

right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."

just enjoying how beautiful
just sitting doing nothing is,
how relaxing, how restful.

and Honor toward, Spirit and all creation,
you must Honor yourself to feel worthy of that unity.
