live in the paradox between soft & wild

1-DSC04290

The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are moments when we touch one another, when we are there in the most attentive or caring way. This simple and profound intimacy is the love that we all long for. These moments of touching and being touched can become a foundation for a path with heart, and they take place in the most immediate and direct way. Mother Teresa put it like this: “In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.”….Jack Kornfield

we are forever ruined when staring into the deep abyss of the dark wood, the skyline like blue eyes, the rain that sinks into the heart like mist……thank God and the stars and the great mystery for this…..

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived………Henry David Thoreau

move like trees…

A reverence for life is a reverence for wildness. A reverence for life beyond your control. Something you don’t dominate. That is the native habitat of new ideas. Of real humanity—to expose yourself to things beyond your control. And just ride out the consequences. That is what I seek and want to protect. Elements that are beyond our control……..Doug Peacock

  1. Surely, the measure of joy can be found in the still soft buzz of the honeybee, or in the smallest cry from the depths of a seashell. Ahhhh, close is rarely close enough. ❤ Love to you, my friend.

    • to sit and breathe and allow it all to sink in to the senses, the soul, the silence….little trinkets of being…..sweet solace in the tiny wood dear Bobbie….
