IK 388 for December 2016 b

good fortune right now.

words have different meanings; like ‘relish’.

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: My Elfje; five line verse of 11 words and
line/syllable count; tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8 and or pi ku:  1/3, 2/1, 3/4
are my interpretations of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me.  Also, I am going in my own order.
