“I think I fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their soul. This world is so guarded and fearful. I appreciate rawness so much.”
The bright light of each and every unique soul creates stunning and radiant beauty. Yes, there is more than a little love in witnessing the raw essence of the individual beings that have offered me the privilege of knowing them well…
“I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen, heard, understood, and touched by them. The greatest gift I can give is to see, hear, understand, and touch another person.”
Equal dignity in the eyes of the law. Finally.
My heart is singing and I am thinking of so many friends…. Love reigns, love rules, love is all you need, let there be more love in the world…..
Celebrating love today!
“A lifetime without Love is of no account
Love is the Water of Life
Drink it down with heart and soul!”
Ask four questions;
Is it true?
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
Does it improve on silence?
This I understand is the Buddhist way of deciding whether to break a silence. I think it vitally important and compassionate to consider all of these before speaking. Words have power that resonate long after they’ve been spoken. To take care and be impeccable with your word, as The Four Agreements teach us, is a loving way to go about our days. Every hour I endeavor to do so – some days better than others…. It’s a learning journey we’re all on, so I’ll be kind to myself and others when we fall short of the mark.
“Many a calm river begins as a turbulent waterfall, yet none hurtles and foams all the way to the sea.”
“An old Cherokee told his grandson, “My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The boy thought about it, and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?”
The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”
-A Cherokee Legend
A shimmering moonglow fog
but surely it is easily permeable?
But not tonight.
Instead, I will dwell on
my husband’s breathing and Little Bear’s dreaming.
No need to push aside the veil.
