A Moment of Wonder

 

“To let the moment teach us, we must allow ourselves to be at least slightly stunned by it until it draws us inward and upward, toward a subtle experience of wonder.” – Richard Rohr

Let yourself be stunned by something as small as a rosebud or as large as a sky full of thunderheads. Let yourself be drawn into wonder.

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. And carry the calm.

Nature’s Pulse – and Our Own

 

“Everything new and pure

in the very prime of the spring

when Nature’s pulses were beating highest,

and mysteriously keeping time with our own!”

John Muir

 

Pause for a moment of peace, and notice a bud, a bloom, a spring-green leaf. Take a deep breath of the day. Match your pulse to nature’s energetic peace. Nurture that peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.

When Spring Comes Rushing

 

“I am a seed scattered from the barn of heaven

When spring comes rushing in my heart

I will burst in green.

Winter seems now a long forgotten dream.”

Rumi

 

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
