Seeking that quiet center


When I try to still my mind,
some part of me is always racing toward the future,
while some other part is leaning back into the past.
Help me to find the quiet center
that lies between the two.

The flame of love


The flame of love may rise and set in our hearts,
but it is always there, coloring our thoughts,
and when they grow dark it circles round, ready to flare again.

Silent reminders


Even in death,
we leave our mark upon the landscape,
silent reminders of what was,
and what will be.

Make time to feed your soul



Take some time today to step outside: 
Whether you just sit and appreciate
Or take a walk on the wild side,
It's bound to feed your soul.

Time to break the cycle


There will always be circumstances beyond our control.
But the larger and more pervasive they become,
the more determined we are to control what things we can,
and the angrier we grow when those attempts are thwarted.
What will you do today to break that cycle?

Enchanting invitation


You don't have to be bold to be beautiful.
Subtle colors and contrasting textures 
have a beauty all their own; their quiet charm
an enchanting invitation into mystery.

Illumination from within


Even as we reach for the light, let us not forget 
that we are also illuminated from within...
