be thankful and faithful


do not reap to the very edges

of your field

or gather the gleanings

of your harvest

. . .

Leviticus 23:22


is an action


the words you use

reflect the quality

of your spirit

New Beginnings

13 November

is there anything (or anyone) that you think you cannot do without?

ponder that for a moment.

of course you can do without it.

choose peace

at every turn

until you won’t have to choose anymore

the only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone

Mitch Albom

the five people you meet in heaven

i don’t quite subscribe to that, but the thinking we’re alone pings at my heart because we’re not

every day

getting closer to the truth

. the journey is the path .

the only path

take it

… become quiet enough

so that you can simply watch the heart begin to react,

and let go before the mind starts.

Michael A. Singer

The Untethered Soul

be thankful + faithful every day πŸ‚

. self surrender is voluntary .

surrender your self

to yourself

it can be so powerful

and more than once, that impression which i can’t describe except by saying that it’s like the sound of a chuckle in the darkness. the sense that some shattering and disarming simplicity is the real answer.


A Grief Observed

take off the fig leaves



become totally empty

quiet the restlessness of the mind

only then will you witness everything

unfolding from emptiness

. . .

to know this process

brings enlightenment

Tao Te Ching

Verse 16

we are at peace when we surrender to providence

she was fascinated with words. to her, words were things of beauty,

each like a magical powder

or potion that could be combined

with other


to create

powerful spells.

Dean Koontz

how do you use words?

… how often?

. the choice to want and grasp is ours .

but remember that often

it is simpler + easier

to let go

and swing in the pendulum

of balance

teach us to number our days aright,

that we may gain a heart

of wisdom

Psalm 90

when not sure how to say something,

what would / do you do?

i mean, when you know it will detonate a …

do you say it as is? coat it?

change it?

not say anything at all?

just wondering

know everything in this moment

and you will know the

eternal tao

Tao Te Ching

v 14

it is simple to open our hands + receive

try it

not clinging is a wonderful enterprise

what if nobody finds out who i am???

Billy Joel
