Simple Things

“[G]ive us a heart for simple things:

love, laughter, bread, wine and dreams;

fill us with green growing hope!”

– Barry Rose –

Nurture peace, cultivate loving-kindness, and carry the calm.

The Very Life of Life

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!

Look to this Day!

For it is Life, the very Life of Life.

In its brief course lie all the

Verities and Realities of your Existence;

The Bliss of Growth

The Glory of Action

The Splendor of Beauty;

For Yesterday is but a Dream,

And Tomorrow is only a Vision,

But Today well lived makes every

Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, and every

Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.

Look well therefore to this Day!

Such is the Salutation of the Dawn.

– from the Sanskrit –


Nourish peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.
