Well Worn

You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it is better to listen to what it has to say.

~ Paulo Coelho



I have sat in this spot on this river for 20 years. I never tire of it or wish I was somewhere else when I am here.  When I visit this spot something inside me remembers, wakes up, and feelings flow like the water that is held between the banks. This is a place I call home. A place where my heart melts and my mind calms.. 



Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers

but to be fearless in facing them.


Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain

but for the heart to conquer it.


Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield

but to my own strength.


Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved

but hope for the patience to win my freedom.

~ Rabindranath Tagore



Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.

~ Khalil Gibran


Fall Light

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

~ Gandhi
