shaping tomorrow

The mind that tries to shape tomorrow beyond its capacities will find no rest.
Be kind to yourself, dear – to your innocent follies.
Forget any sounds or any touch you knew that did not help you to dance
You will come to see that all evolves us.


Quote: Rumi (found in Daniel Ladinsky, Love Poems from God)

Deeper than reason


What’s magical, sometimes, has deeper roots than reason.

speaking from the heart

It takes courage to break through the masks we have co-constructed
and speak from the truth of our hearts.

choose love – always

 

We must continually choose love in order to nourish our souls and drive away fear,
just as we eat to nourish our bodies and drive away hunger.

to be brave enough

“the new dawn blooms as we free it – for there is always light if only we’re brave enough to see it, if only we’re brave enough to be it.”
