war & peace

Sometime questions really stay the most potent and transformational when they can just stand on their own. And you live with them over a period of time, and you come back to them. And then you see something different in the question or you feel something different about your response.

~ Adyashanti

may my longing allow me to show up and not turn away…

inquiry for today~ how will you pray today?

poised for peace

A longing to wander tears my heart

when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening.

If one listens to them silently for a long time,

the longing reveals its kernel,

its meaning.

It is not so much a matter of escaping from one’s suffering,

though it may seem to be so.

It is a longing for home,

for a memory of the mother,

for new metaphors for life.

It is home.

~Herman Hesse

  1. Hesse bring us to a strange realization where trees are rooted to the earth, the longing is for a connection not lost, but forgotten when we are wrapped up in living, the Spiritus Mundi hidden in the shadow of life
