sorrow folds in

Humanity, take a good look at yourself.

Inside, you’ve got heaven and earth, and all of creation.

You’re a world-

everything is hidden in you.

~Hildegard of Bingen

what have you left behind?

inquiry for today~ maybe it’s a soul moment…

centered here

All things arise from Tao. They are nourished by virtue. They are formed from matter.

They are shaped by environment. Thus the ten thousand things all respect Tao and honor virtue.

Respect of Tao and honor of virtue are not demanded, but they are in the nature of things.

Therefore all things arise from Tao.

By virtue they are nourished, developed, cared for, sheltered, comforted, grown, and protected.

Creating without claiming, doing without taking credit, guiding without interfering.

This is primal virtue.

~Lao Tsu

      • In reply to all the others … To use Joni’s words – “We are stardust “… consciousness is the greatest gift, and the greatest mystery. We search with telescopes and microscopes, all manner of invention, to find what we know in our heart we already are. As a child Thich Nhat Hahn, when his mother returned from the market, used to sit in his garden eating the cookie she would always bring. He would always take an hour or more to finish it. Our souls shine through the fog of flesh, seeking answers when the reality is we already know. We are here to find we are stardust touching itself in wonderment for the fist time forever. May every Christmas cookie become a prayer for your remembering …❤️
