What a wonder, this life.


Open yourself to your life the way a window opens to let in light and air. To welcome life is to meet that which is divine. That which is divine opens her arms and holds you like a lover. Friend, that which is divine is a lover. Open yourself to your life. Don’t wait any longer.

South Yuba River, several days of rain. To watch the racing water churn through the rock canyon and splash under the Highway 49 bridge is to see power in its purity. Strong enough to take out a train and yet it is really carrying life to the Sacramento Valley far below. What a wonder, this life.

Trying to convince someone is fundamentally our ego's activity. Even if we prove to be right, our ego seeks a new argument to tangle with.

Silence is a source of Great Strength.
