I Shall Live Beyond Death

"I shall live beyond death,

and I shall sing in your ears

Even after the vast sea-wave

carries me back

To the vast sea-depth.

I shall sit at your board though

without a body,

And I shall go with you to your

fields, a spirit invisible.

I shall come to you at your

fireside, a…

"The General's Daughter"

"THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER”



The girl in the photo is Anne de Gaulle; the third daughter of Yvonne Vendroux and General de Gaulle. She was born on New Year's Day in 1928. Her features, as you can appreciate, are characteristic of what we now call Down syndrome, and in Anne's case it was severe, so much so that she could barely walk…

Clair de Lune

CLAIR DE LUNE



Your soul is a chosen landscape

Where charming masquerades and dancers are promenading,

Playing the lute and dancing, and almost

Sad beneath their fantastic disguises.

While singing in a minor key

Of victorious love, and the pleasant life

They seem not to believe in their own happiness

And their song blends with the light of the moon,

With the sad and beautiful light of the moon,

Which sets the birds in…

Earth Song

EARTH SONG

Listen to things more often than beings.

Hear the voice of the fire, hear the voice of the water,

Listen in the wind to the sighing of the bush:

This is the ancestors breathing.

Those who are dead are never gone;

The dead are not down…

I was busy

I lied and said I was busy.

I was busy but not in a way

most people understand.

I was busy taking deeper breaths.

I was busy silencing irrational thoughts.

I was busy calming a racing heart.

I was busy telling myself I am okay.

Sometimes this is my busy,

and I will not apologize for…

You start dying slowly

You start dying slowly ;

if you do not travel,

if you do not read,

If you do not listen to the sounds of life,

If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly :

When you kill your self-esteem,

When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly ;

If…

Fill yourself up with Love

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in Love with you along the way, and it doesn't need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with Love. Not anyone…

Siddhartha

The greatest achievement is selflessness.

The greatest worth is self-mastery.

The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.

The greatest precept is continual awareness.

The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.

The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.

The greatest magic…

Luna, calm me down.

Luna, calm me down.

Moon calm me - I need your light.

Get me drunk on whatever you want, but get me drunk.

I am a spy forgotten in the house of someone else's love.

I've lost touch with the world that doesn't exist.

Rain in the North, snow in the…

It says in the Tao, "Truth waits for eyes unclouded by longing."

It says in the Tao, “Truth waits for eyes unclouded by longing.”

The way I hear this in psychology is: motivation affects perception. When I’m hungry I see what’s edible. If I’m horny, I see what’s makeable. If I’m tired, I see what’s soft, you know, my motivation selects out of the infinity of the universe what it is that fits…

I will continue, always

This body of mine will disintegrate, but my actions will continue me… If you think I am only this body, then you have not truly seen me. When you look at my friends, you see my continuation. When you see someone walking with mindfulness and compassion, you know he is my continuation. I don’t see why we have to say “I will…

"This body is not me..."

"This body is not me; I am not caught in this body, I am life without boundaries, I have never been born and I have never died. Over there, the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies all manifests from the basis of consciousness. Since beginningless time I have always been free. Birth and death are only a door through which…

Forget about enlightenment

Art by Kinuko Craft

Forget about enlightenment.

Sit down wherever you are

And listen to the wind singing in your veins.

Feel the love, the longing, the fear in your bones.

Open your heart to who you are, right now,…

Find what heals your soul

Art by Jennifer Yoswa

Find what heals your soul ❤️

If it’s your soul which is exhausted.

Food won’t satisfy a hunger for acceptance, love or adventure.

An empty void can’t be filled, with material possessions or holidays.

A bountiful bank account won’t buy health or…

Today I bow to all women

Today I bow to all women

who have endured

oppression, silencing, abuse, rape.



Today I bow to all women

who have made any steps

in their lifetime toward finding their voice, their truth, their heart, their power, in spite of it all.



Today I bow

to the long line of women who were…

Can you let me love you as you are?

Can you let me love you as you are?

All wide-eyed with wonder? Feral with possibility? Hungry with longing? You who are home to what is wild and divine. All the flavors of human. Can you let me love you in the moments of life that are both ordinary and divine? Through the seasons and cycles of the moon, reflected in both of our…

Excerpt from the book 'Butterflies and Pebbles'

I started calling that girl back. The girl who loved living, the girl who danced instead of walking.

The girl who had sunflowers for eyes and fireworks in her soul.

I started playing music again, hoping she would come out.

I started looking for beautiful moments to experience, so she would feel safe enough to show…
