Your heart has a powerful little antenna and its vibrations can be felt throughout the universe…
“Never judge someone’s character based on the words of another. Instead, study the motives behind the words of the person casting the bad judgment. An honest woman can sell tangerines all day and remain a good person until she dies, but there will always be naysayers who will try to convince you otherwise. Perhaps this woman did not give them something for free, or at a discount. Perhaps too, that she refused to stand with them when they were wrong — or just stood up for something she felt was right. And also, it could be that some bitter women are envious of her, or that she rejected the advances of some very proud men. Always trust your heart. If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to her.”
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
Dr. Carl Sagan
“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
~ Edgar Allan Poe ~
There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Oh oh oh oh and she’s buying a stairway to heaven
There’s a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook
There’s a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgivingOoh,
it makes me wonder …..
“I knew the power of a single wish, after all. Invisible and inevitable, like a butterfly that beats its wings in one corner of the globe and with that single action changes the weather halfway across the world.”
To love. To be loved.
To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you.
To seek joy in the saddest places.
To pursue beauty to its lair.
To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.
To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch.
To try to understand.
To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
– Arundhati Roy –
“If you want to know the past,
to know what has caused you,
look at yourself in the PRESENT,
for that is the past’s effect.
If you want to know your future,
then look at yourself in the PRESENT,
for that is the cause of the future.”
~ Majjhima Nikaya ~
“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still,
it won’t mean as much as what you can have
when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word,
yet you feel that person with your heart,
you feel like you have known the person for forever….
connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
is from elsewhere,
I’m sure of that,
and I intend to end
