I am using this blog to collect words, ideas, pictures, and other forms of media that remind me I'm a spiritual being having a human experience. I hope anyone who stumbles upon my blog will be inspired and uplifted.
the weight deadens on your shoulders and you stumble, may the clay dance to balance you.
And when your eyes freeze behind the grey window and the ghost of loss gets in to you, may a flock of colours, indigo, red, green, and azure blue come to awaken in you a meadow of delight.
When the canvas frays in the currach of thought and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you, may there come across the waters a path of yellow moonlight to bring you safely home.
May the nourishment of the earth be yours, may the clarity of light be yours, may the fluency of the ocean be yours, may the protection of the ancestors be yours. And so may a slow wind work these words of love around you, an invisible cloak to mind your life.
"A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty."
You can see that it would be a mistake to look for your purpose outside yourself. Your purpose will not be at the end of a long adventure. It will be found in the way you engage with the adventure. Your purpose will not be found at the end of an inspiring seminar. It will be found in that which drew you to the seminar in the first place and the way in which you made a contribution to it.
