Since we cannot change reality,
let us change the way in which we see reality.

The Best Day

Friendship With Oneself

Friendship with oneself
is all-important,
because without it
one cannot be friends
with anyone else in the world.
Eleanor Roosevelt

All changes,
even the most longed for,
have their melancholy;
for what we leave behind us
is part of ourselves.

We must die to one life
before we can
enter another.
Anatole France

Beautiful Aloneness


Be thy own palace
the world's thy jail.

Stay Away


Now and again,
it is necessary to seclude yourself among deep mountains
and hidden valleys
to restore your link to the source of life.
Breathe in and let yourself soar to the ends of the Universe;
Breathe out
and bring the Cosmos back inside.

Up From the Table


Move like a beam of light;
Fly like lightening,
Strike like thunder,
Whirl in circles around
A stable center.

No pessimist ever discovered
the secrets of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new heaven to
the human spirit.

Iron is full of impurities that weaken it.
Through forging, it becomes steel and is transformed into a razor-sharp sword.
Human beings develop in the same fashion.
