COLORS

The colors live

Between black and white

In a land that we

Know best by sight.

But knowing best

Isn’t everything

For colors dance

And colors sing

And colors laugh

And colors cry

Turn off the light

And colors die,

And they make you feel

Every feeling there is

From the grumpiest grump

To the fizziest fizz.

And you and you and I

Know well

Each has a taste

And each has a smell

And each has a wonderful

Story to tell."

By Mary O’Neill

From the book "Hailstones and Halibut Bones"

"What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across
the grass and loses itself in the sunset."
Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator 1830 - 1890

“One day You will take my heart completely
and make it more fiery than a dragon.
Your eyelashes will write on my heart
the poem that could never come from the pen of a poet.”

Mindful or Full Mind — by Dr. Steven   Januar 24, 2018 

Mindful.

Full mind.

Neither.

Both.

I'm always jumping back and forth.

One minute I'm mindful.

The next I'm a mind full of stuff.

Silly stuff.

Stuff I like.

Stuff I don't.

Judging here and there.

Likes.

Then I recognize my mind full of stuff.

And try to move back to mindful.

How?

Look at that tree.

Listen to that waterfall.

Feel my lungs filling with cool air.

Smell the cedar.

Before mindful -- full mind.

During mindful -- noticing my full mind and letting it be.

Letting it be exactly how it is and exactly how it isn't.

After mindful -- full mind.

Keep noticing.

WISE WORDS FOR OUR TIMES:
Human unity is a power that can overcome all differences of race, nationality, ideology or culture. Military leaders have aroused partial unity by means of fear, pride, anger, hate and lies. But unity can also be aroused, more fruitfully and enduringly, by love and the desire for justice.
-- Richard Gregg

The musk is within the deer

By Dariya Sahib of Bihar
(1634 - 1780)
English version by K. N. Upadhyaya

The musk is within the deer,
But he searches for it outside in the grass
instead of searching within himself.
He runs back and forth,
Wondering where the fragrance comes from.
The fragrance is nearby,
But he knows it not.

Caught by delusion, he roams about.
So do all people wander in pilgrimages
and outer observances.
If you wish to obtain your own true Home,
Then find it by looking within yourself
and dwell therein.

The true Lord resides within this body,
Recognize Him through the manifestation of true love.
By churning this body,
And by entering within yourself,
See the manifestation of true wisdom.
