"

I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up

I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go

I know
nothing

but I am here to learn.

"Consider that you radiate. At all times. Consider that what you’re feeling right now is rippling outward into a field of is-ness that anyone can dip their oar into. You are felt. You are heard. You are seen. If you were not here, the world would be different. Because of your presence, the universe is expanding."

"The eternal principle, which never was born, never will die: it is in all things: it is in you now. You are a wave on the face of the ocean. When the wave is gone, is the water gone? Has anything happened? Nothing has happened. It is a play, a game, a dance."

"Gardening is like poetry in that it is gratuitous, and also that it cannot be done by will alone. What will can do, and the only thing it can do, is make time in which to do it."

My Buddhist friend was stopped by a Christian fellowship and asked if she would consider following the word of Jesus Christ. She replied, “No, thanks, but maybe next time around.”

I don’t think they got the joke but I nearly died laughing.

"Let go, it’s okay.
It’s what the rocks do
before becoming
one with the sea.
It’s what the clouds
do when they can
no longer be silent.

Erode.
Dissolve.
Swim away.

You are no longer
leaving yourself behind
because you thought
no one else wanted you,
you are leaving them behind
and taking everything
they couldn’t hold onto.

So let go.
Dissolve.
Swim away.

There’s no shame
in surviving."

I don’t mean to be a bother, but there’s an entire universe inside you. Sewing piece on felt from today.
