Laugh a lot

“The best way to treat obstacles is to use them as stepping-stones. Laugh at them, tread on them, and let them lead you to something better.” ~ Enid Blyton

It is a perfect day, such as makes one in love with the earth.

The Dance

An open heart is the portal to the eyes to the soul. When we begin to see and feel through the eyes of the soul we connect to the oneness of the universe and become, not merely an onlooker, but an active participant, a creative force performing with and fully integrated within the magnificent, cosmic dance of life. ~ Mary Anne Byrne

A Quote by Thomas Merton on spirituality

“Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds, so each moment brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of men. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the good soil of freedom, spontaneity and love. – Thomas Merton

Look for a Star

When life doesn’t seem worth the living
and you don’t really care who you are
when you feel there is no one beside you
look for a star

When you know you’re alone and so lonely
and your friends have travelled afar
there is someone waiting to guide you
look for a star

Oh everyone has a lucky star
that shines in the sky up above
if you wish on a lucky star
you’re sure to find someone to love

A rich man man, a poor man, a beggar
no matter whoever you are
there’s a friend who’s waiting to guide you
look for a star

A rich man, a poor man, a beggar
no matter whoever you are
there’s a friend who’s waiting to guide
you
look for a star.

from Endymion

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o’er-darkened ways
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
Trees old and young, sprouting a shady boon
For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
With the green world they live in; and clear rills
That for themselves a cooling covert make
‘Gainst the hot season; the mid forest brake,
Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
We have imagined for the mighty dead;
All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.

Love has no conditions

Love has no conditions.  When we put conditions, when we put barriers and boundaries, then we lose love.  Love is condition-less.  Love is barrier-less.  Look at the moon, sun, stars, trees. . . they are just on for everyone.  When our love also flows for everyone, you become very natural.
