Simple meditation with Jaya Ashmore: Allowed to be and to know what is important 3:18 minutes

Every day I see or hear something that more or less

kills me with delight, that leaves me like a needle

in the haystack of light. It was what I was born for - to look, to listen,

to lose myself inside this soft world - to instruct myself over and over

in joy, and acclamation.

~ Mary Oliver (US, 1935-), from “Mindful,” Why I Wake Early

"I was so surprised by how real it felt with the video and audio connection. I feel really touched."

~Nanda, Holland

mother tongue: to the child just born


if i were eloquent in your language

i would try to tell you


how it is

when something difficult loves you,


how it is
when you begin to love it back,


how this can

cost you everything.


~Lucille Clifton (US, 1965-2010),
