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, 1935-2019),

Ground art: Hamsaji's kollam ground art inspires Jaya's reflections trust and the spiritual path 4:35  minutes

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),

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

I feel really touched."

~Nanda, Holland

May our practice and our lives be dedicated to the momentum of awakening for all,

including ourselves.
