The practice of resurrection should be taken
up by each of us. When we practice it with
success we will also help other people around us.
This is the true practice of being alive. Whatever
we do in our daily practice — walking, sitting, eating
or sweeping the floor — the purpose of all these
things is to help us become alive again. Be alive
in every moment, and by waking up yourself,
you will wake up the world.
……Thich Nhat Hanh
do you remember Easter mornings of deep promise & hope? of a dawn so full of fresh light & spring blooming, inside & out? may this inspiration from within call us to share our gifts without fail
I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.
You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fiber your blood.
Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.
The beauty and quality of your work is related to your connection to your inner world. If you do that, and you persist through discouragement, through days of disappointing results, you will do some powerful work.
The journey requires a belief in the beauty within. That belief needs to be nurtured. It is about linking the inner beauty with the beauty and mystery of the larger existence, and using one to serve the other. One feeds the other.
