Welcome to my peace filled space. Thank you for joining me here!
I sat under the Full Moon..and I thought:
How long can I sit comfortably in the presence of power, grace, beauty. How wide may I open my arms to receive these gifts, how long may I hold them open joyfully, effortlessly this night and beyond….
I look to the stars, glistening brightly, clustered, some seemingly set apart…and I thought:
All that is reflected to me..*is me*! I am the moon, the stars, the expanse of the sky, the black of night, the brilliance of the moonbeams, the clusters and the ones seemingly set apart…I am power, grace, beauty..I am all that I See–not with my eyes–but with my heart..
I am..and so are You!
“Gracefulness has been defined to be the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul”
“Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself, which makes this void.”
– Simone Weil
“Learn to limit yourself; to content yourself with some definite work; dare to be what you are and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not; and to believe in your own individuality.”
– Henri Frederic Amiel
And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child–our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
