shaping tomorrow

a929262188bdb7741999afac63da1c5c

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)

Guest House

This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.

stars wrapped in skin

Today is the Feast of Candlemas,
which echoes themes found in many traditions around this time –
new life, the first budding of plants, the return of the sun –
light and warmth at the halfway point between the winter and the spring solstices.

We need constant reminders of the presence of light.

We are stars wrapped in skin,

The light you are seeking has always been within.

a field of grass…

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

I lean toward the day when the phrase “I’ll meet you there” is once again in our civil discourse.

By example- let us make it so.

to kneel…

There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
