| Duty and Vision
We build our lives with two major elements -- duty and vision.
Duty relates to the present. It is all we need to do now, for the
Creator, for other people and for ourselves. It also obligates us to
enjoy our lives, to live them with love and respect.
Vision refers to our future. It is the dream towards which we work and
move. It also relates to our present. We use it like a paintbrush. With
it, we may color all our action, speech and thoughts.*
