Ultimately, we have just one moral duty:
to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves,
more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others.
And the more peace there is in us,
the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Quote: RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Don’t be so fast, you’re all you’ve got.
Quote: Rita Dove
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.
