If you know that your life is a journey…

 

 

 

If you know that your life is a journey and if you want to make it to your divine destination, you must learn to travel light! Unpack the abrasive attitudes, addictive appetites, and frivolous fears that you have packed away in the crevices of your heart and mind. Pack a tidbit of truth, a capsule of courage, a fistful of faith, and a pocketful of prayer, and be on your way!

#FridayFantasy . . . Ethereal pastime

 

 

 

“Hide-and-seek they then played amidst the floating flowers. Rama sank down until his face only was seen, and Sita, who searched for him, knew not whether she saw the face of Rama or a blue lotus bloom on the surface of the pond.”

From “The Ramayana,” ancient Indian epic poem. Illustrated by Warwick Goble, 1915.

Be that one today!

 

 

 

ONE

One tree can start a forest;
One smile can begin a friendship;
One hand can lift a soul;
One word can frame the goal;
One candle can wipe out darkness;
One laugh can conquer gloom;
One hope can raise your spirits;
One touch can show you care;
One life can make the difference;
Be that one today.

The wise person begins each day like a small child

 

 

 

“The wise person begins each day as a small child. Every cell of his being is dedicated to learning wisdom, and so from every person he finds some wisdom to learn.
Each day, he rises to great heights of wisdom. And yet, the next morning, he begins all over again, as a small child, in wonder.”
Rabbi Tzvi Freeman

#TenderTuesday . . . . His heart was like a sensitive plant





“His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine,
but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger,
or the lightest breath of wind.”


Quote from “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall,” by Anne Brontë, 1848.

The plain fact…




“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people.
But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers,
storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well
in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight
to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little
do with success as we have defined it.”

And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep…




“And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep,
and sink in good oblivion, and in the morning wake
like a new-opened flower then I have been dipped
again in God, and new-created.”

D. H. Lawrence

In the very nature of every human being




” In the very nature of every human being has been sown the
seed of the ability to love. You and I ought to welcome this seed,
cultivate it carefully, nourish it attentively and foster its growth.”


Saint Basil

In the depths of your hopes and desires…




“In the depths of your hopes and desires lies your
silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your
heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to
eternity.”


― Kahlil Gibran
