Eastertide . . . Maundy Thursday

  Holy Thursday
And in this frigid hour, when the earth 
Smells of human dust and is so sad,
I want to knock on every door
And beg forgiveness of I don’t know whom,
And bake bits of fresh bread for him (or her)
Here, in the oven of my heart…!

~Cesar Vallejo, “Our Bread”

one for Charlie Chaplin’s birthday(16 April 1889)

“There’s something just as inevitable as death, and that’s life. Life, life, life.
Think of all the power that’s in the universe, moving the earth, growing the trees.
That’s the same power within you if you only have courage and the will to use it.”

~ Charlie Chaplin

Lenten Thoughts #5…..As we awaken in the vast wonder of God.

Everything becomes sacred when we walk with God.
Every leaf, every tree, every eye, and open heart. 
The ground we work and plant. 
The words we write and sing. 
The ones we bless and honor…
Every person becomes Beloved 
As we awaken in the vast wonder of God.”

~ Bob Holmes

Eastertide loading…..

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

Celebrating Albert Einstein

Today we specially remember Albert Einstein, a well-known physicist who developed the theory of relativity and his famous equation , E = mc². Born on the 14th of March 1878 in Ulm Germany, some informed minds hold that “Not since Isaac Newton had one man so drastically altered our understanding of how the universe works.” Beyond science, we salute his philosophical side and commendable spiritual recognitions. In commemoration of his birthday, let us reflect on one of his vintage quotes:

“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.”
