nature mystics forage for truth

If you want to know love, let in everything.

…..Mark Nepo

never can we reach down and find the authentic joy of this life without the risk that moves with us in every moment….this is not fear, but rather the deep ache that moves through us…..the pulse of the earth and the animals and the nature of our bones….

The same stream of life that runs

through my veins night and day runs

through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy

through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass

and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle

of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world

of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages

dancing in my blood this moment.

…..Rabindranath Tagore

hope & miracles

The journey to self-knowledge that we each must take- the conscious discovery of our ultimate individual place- is the prerequisite to full human consciousness, to the full savoring of the grandeur of this world, to the privilege of fully participating in life, and to the responsibility of contributing something sacred and essential to this world. Wisdom traditions worldwide say there’s no greater blessing than to live the life of your soul; doing so is the source of your deepest personal fulfillment and of your greatest service to others. It’s what you were born for……Bill Plotkin

  1. Thank you for this, my friend. Surely, the very act of living is a risk. Consider all that could happen before we are born and in the time since, and we realize the divine in our journey – the sacred intimacy we share with this world. For me, to live (to love) requires that I ‘be’ here, in this place, a part of everything (and everything a part of me). So that every day (every day), I rejoice yet in this – a day Creator has made. Let me resonate these familiar stars, and grieve the setting sun. ~ May the miracle that is life grow to full blossom neath your window. ~ Love ever, Bobbie

    • spring alights through your post…..ever sweet and heady the scent…..divine instincts move through the heart as we know our own truths…..time for planting soon Bobbie……
