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)
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.
