Noise of the World


The noise of the world is merely an echo of the soul looking for itself.  Do not cover your ears. Listen to the beautiful longing and be a guide.


From Beyond


“All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

Painting by Frederick Childe Hassam (1887)

Epiphany of God


“It is the love of my lover, my brother, or my child that sees God in me, makes God credible to myself in me. And it is my love for my lover, my child, my brother that enables me to show God to him or her in himself or herself.”

~ Thomas Merton in James Finley’s Merton’s Palace of Nowhere

Painting by Paul Cézanne (1839)

Natural State


“Love is a natural state of consciousness. It is neither easy nor difficult, those words don’t apply to it at all. It is not an effort; hence, it can’t be easy and it can’t be difficult either. It is like breathing! It is like your heartbeat, it is like blood circulating in your body.”

~ Osho

Gentle As You Go

n358 Gently Broken

Be gentle as you breathe.
Be gentle as you let go.
Be easy with your heart.
It has hardened over time,
But remains soft at it’s center.
Open your heart gently.
Breathe easy.
Do not fear the pain.
Let it go.
Let the pain go where it wants to go.
Let your body breathe.
Release your protective grip,
And let your body live.
Be gentle.
You are healing.
You are healing.
Let it go gently.
This will pass.
You are eternal.
You are loved.
You are healthy.
You are safe.
Be gentle and breathe.
Rest now.
I love you.
I love you.
Rest now and feel loved.
