Listen, drink it in. Peace.
A place worth spending time... Loads of images and thoughtful, well written stumbler reviews.
A pleasure, thank you.
I fear I may have developed another personality again.
Sigh. Why does this keep happening?
Very nice start to an awesome blog. Buddha, Neruda, and angels coming.... really what more can one ask for? Thanks for the kind review too!
Truth.. Thanks Amy.
Agreed, thanks Lightchaser.
Very nice. Thanks for sharing it.
These were not together on her blog, but I like them together on mine. Thank you Anneb10.....
Be with those who help your being.
Don't sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.
Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.
A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.
If you don't try to fly,
and so break yourself apart,
you will be broken open by death,
when it's too late for all you could become.
Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh roots
and makes them green.
Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?
Now here are some supplements I need!
Thanks ohmgracer...great stumbles.

"Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heart-ache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, to discover what is already there. - Henry Miller "
aaaannd this is why I love this blog
From the page:
" Ask more questions, not the same questions more often
Recognize you can be whatever you desire to be
Know that performance does not equal identity
Realize that you are the equal of everybody
Realize that you are the better of nobody
Appreciate you did the best you could
Face the future, live for the moment
Understand suffering is part of life
Accept you will make mistakes
Breathe from your diaphragm
Smile when things get tough
Always be kind to yourself
Think before your answer
Visualize Your Success
Take time for yourself
Make time for others
Listen with interest
Still Your Mind
Most excellent blog...

"You're the Result of Yourself
Don't blame anyone, never complain of anyone or anything
Because basically you have made of your life what you wanted.
Accept the difficulties of edifying yourself
And the worth of starting to correct your character.
The triumph of the true man arises from the ashes of his mistakes.
Never complain of your loneliness or your luck.
Face it with courage and accept it.
Somehow, they are the result of your acts and
It shows that you'll always win.
Don't feel frustrated of your own failures, neither unload them to someone else.
Accept yourself now or you'll go on justifying yourself like a child.
Remember that any time is good to start
And that no time is so good to give up.
Don't forget that the cause of your present is your past,
As the cause of your future will be your present.
Learn from the brave, from the strong,
From who doesn't accept situations
From who will live in spite of everything.
Think less of your problems and more of your work.
Learn to arise from your pain,
And to be greater than the greatest of your obstacles.
Look at the mirror of yourself and you'll be free and strong
And you'll stop being a puppet of circumstances.
For you yourself are your destiny.
Wake up and stare at the sun in the mornings and breathe the sun of dawn.
You're part of the strength of your life now,
Rise up, fight, walk, be sure and you'll win in life.
Don't ever think of 'fate'
For fate is the excuse of failures.
Amazing. I have no other words, he has used them all.
Embrace me not with your touch
but with your hands.
Touch me not with your eyes
but with your heart.
Hear me not with your words
but with mine.
Love me not for who i will be
but for who i am now.
Listen to me not because you can
but because you want to.
Be near me not because you have to
but because you need to.
Trust me not because you want to
but because it feels right.
See me for what i am becoming
not for what i once was.
Kiss me like there is no tomorrow.
My passion never wanes.
