Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding. 
Mutual confidence, sharing, and forgiving.

Ann Landers

Your successes and happiness are forgiven you only if 

you generously consent to share them. 

But to be happy it is essential not to be too concerned with others. Consequently, there is no escape. 

Happy and judged, or absolved and wretched.

Albert Camus, The Fall

So often, I am moved by what others express in writing, 
and I feel the urge to share what I read.
With their words, I am either filled with a silent but immense Yes, 
that settles into me with a deep internal sacral click, 
like a puzzle piece falling heavily into place, or I feel a yearning down low in my soul 
— that softly drifting fog that I sense inside.
This soul, an intertwining light and dark mist I embrace; 
turning in slow circles, gently caressing the inside of me with lazy fingers, feels calm. 
Patient and content, compassionate and wise, faithful and exquisite, 
she watches with a knowing smile, saying, Follow me. 
It is time.

Things that bring in magic: paradigm shifts happening before your eyes, service, community, stillness within movement, gaining strength from the ground, groups of sweet people, sunshine on soft grass, and soaring from gorgeous, acoustic sound. 
These should be prescribed to anyone anywhere, and often. 
Simple medicine.

Leave everything undefined,including yourself.Befriend uncertainty. Fall in love with mystery.Kneel at the altar of Not Knowing.Give your questions time to breathe.And the answers will find you.

We see the world, not as it is, but as we are — or, as we are conditioned to see it. 
When we open our mouths to describe what we see, 
we in effect describe ourselves, our perceptions, our paradigms.

Stephen R. Covey 

Loneliness is black coffee and late-night television; 
solitude is herb tea and soft music. 
Solitude, quality solitude, is an assertion of self-worth, 
because only in the stillness can we hear the truth of our own unique voices. 

Pearl Cleage, “Deals with the Devil, and Other Reasons to Riot”
