Stroll

When you look at the sun during your walking meditation, the mindfulness of the body helps you to see that the sun is in you; without the sun there is no life at all and suddenly you get in touch with the sun in a different way. 

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

The Beautiful Ordinary

The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it. If a mountain is a deity, not a pile of ore; if a river is one of the veins of the land, not potential irrigation water; if a forest is a sacred grove, not timber; if other species are our biological kin, not resources; or if the planet is our mother, not an opportunity - then we will treat each one with greater respect. This is the challenge, to look at the world from a different perspective."

~ David Suzuki

Winter

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and madness.  I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks your wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

~ Neil Gaiman

Well Worn

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

Little Fire

Don’t think. 

Thinking is the enemy of the creativity.

It’s self conscious, and anything self conscious is lousy.

You can’t try to do things.

You simply must do things.

~ Ray Bradbury
