Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.

Cast the First Stone

Where the mind is without fear and the
head is held high,
Where knowledge is free, …
Where tireless striving stretches the arms
toward perfection,
Where the clear stream of reason has not
lost its way
into the dreary desert sand of dead
habits,…
My father,
let my country awake.  ~Rabindranath Tagore

Sticks and stones
help make my bones
and words can gently heal me.
Without any need for thinking
digestive tract breaks down
vegetables, fruits and other foods
revealing
vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates
water and other micro nutrients
made available for body’s well-being.

prayer

“I have made mysterious Nature my religion. I do not believe that a man is any nearer to God for being clad in priestly garments, nor that one place in a town is better adapted to meditation than another. When I gaze at a sunset sky and spend hours contemplating its marvelous ever-changing beauty, an extraordinary emotion overwhelms me. Nature in all its vastness is truthfully reflected in my sincere though feeble soul. Around me are the trees stretching up their branches to the skies, the perfumed flowers gladdening the meadow, the gentle grass-carpeted earth, …and my hands unconsciously assume an attitude of adoration. …To feel the supreme and moving beauty of the spectacle to which Nature invites her ephemeral guests! …that is what I call prayer.”

Claude Debussy
