My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
