Yesterday, watching the sunrise, I was a wren, or perhaps a starling. As I chirped, the new light grew. Powerful. Golden. Oh, how I love the sunrise.
Now the coals are glowing red and orange. There is a soft light to the room. Warmth. This is the quiet time in each other’s arms. A time beyond any need to speak. A time when two bodies are one.
Have no fear of perfection, you'll never achieve it.
You can't live in paradise- but you are living right here. Make this your paradise or make this your hell.
The foolish reject what they see, not what they think; the wise reject what they think, not what they see.
Call something an obstacle, it is an obstacle. Call it an opportunity, it is an opportunity. Nothing is extraneous to the spiritual life.
