our choices matter in the design
of this world
of our spiritual world
of the peace in our souls
set your minds on things above
not on earthly things
and be thankful
in all that you do and say:
are you building walls
caught between a seamless backdrop of sky and ocean, they conspire like tribes, their surroundings primal, the pacific lapping at their feet while the night courses through a fraction of eternity . . . natural, primordial
when was the last time you did something for the first time?*
F. Scott Fitzgerald
the world only exists in your eyes — your conception of it. you can make it as big or as small as you want to
how unholy are we to the holy?
Elizabeth Gilberteat, pray, love
to know god,
you need only to renounce
one thing —
your sense of division
The Untethered SoulMichael A. Singer
the secret of the ascent
is to never look down
always look up
today, i am grateful for:
. the word . summer rain . a friend . scents . chances .
Gift From The SeaAnne Morrow Lindbergh
the past and the future are cut off; only the present remains.
existence in the present gives island living an extreme vividness + purity.
every day, every act,
is an island.
there is life out there
beyond the sphere of my body and world.
it follows me + speaks, has me in its grasp.
most often, i endeavor to slip away,
turn, walk, go unnoticed.
but i am a princess
and my beauty is to reign**
