God, being Love is also happiness.
And it is happiness I seek today.
…A Course in Miracles
so hungry we are……all of this trying…. all of this stumbling…..we never really become less human, we just forget…..presence in the eternal, shape-shifts our roaming…..feast here, in the days of wine and bread…….may we offer our home, our food to the inner light….
Self-healing begins with self-awareness, and transpersonal Self-awareness can be viewed as a source of healing within each one of us. When we are willing to pay attention to inner experience we become capable of conscious self-regulation. Without self-awareness, attempts at self-control are likely to be unsuccessful in the long run, and may even be damaging. We must know ourselves and accept ourselves before attempting to manipulate ourselves for the purpose of changes we think are desirable. To understand all is to forgive all, and forgiving ourselves for being just as we are is the first step to healing……Frances Vaughan
I entered the life of the brown forest.
And the great life of the ancient peaks,
the patience of stone, I felt the changes in the veins
In the throat of the mountain,
a grain in many centuries, we have our own time,
not yours; and I was the stream
Draining the mountain wood; and I the stag drinking;
and I was the stars,
Boiling with light, wandering alone, each one
the lord of his own summit;
and I was the darkness
Outside the stars, I included them
they were part of me.
I was mankind also, a moving lichen
On the cheek of the round stone-
they have not made words for it,
to go behind things, beyond hours and ages,
And be all things in all time
in their returns and passages,
in the motionless and timeless center.
