“Love beauty;

it is the shadow of God on the universe.”

Gabriela Mistral

Like the Sun, Silent and Still

 

“Be like the Sun,

King without courtiers,

silent and still as a fulcrum.”

Rumi

Wishing you moments of silence and stillness this week. Close your eyes. Listen to your breath. Feel the subtle messages your skin receives from the air and the textures you touch. Catch scents that drift to you. Open your eyes and focus on one small object. Notice its shape, size, colors. Listen to your breath again. Feel the peace of the moment. You’re a fulcrum, a support, a point of balance calming the world around you.

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.

Kissing Joy As It Flies

 

“He who bends to himself a Joy

Doth the winged life destroy;

But he who kisses the Joy as it flies

Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.”

William Blake

 

Blake’s poem seemed perfect for this delightful link. If you have five minutes or so, treat yourself to the sound of butterflies taking flight.

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.
