Personless Mission Statement

A recent seminar promoted the importance of having a "personal mission statement"—an explicit declaration of what's most important in the long term, a compass for one's life. But how to write a "Personal Mission Statement" without using the words I, me, or mine? Hmmm ... how about something like:

Cherish the universe,
From infinite to infinitesimal,
From the eternal to the now:
Starting with this body, this mind,
Moving through those nearest,
To all of humanity, and then,
Beyond.

Perhaps too vague, and yet too ambitious ...
