“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you; Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want; Don’t go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don’t go back to sleep.”
And when you’ve left this storm, you will come to a fountain;
You’ll find a Friend there who will always nourish your soul.
And with your soul always green, you’ll grow into a tall tree
Flowering always with sweet light-fruit, whose growth is interior.
And joy is everywhere;
It is in the Earth’s green covering of grass;
In the blue serenity of the Sky;
In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
In the severe abstinence of grey Winter;
In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame;
In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
In the exercise of all our powers;
In the acquisition of Knowledge;
In fighting evils…
Joy is there
Love is the scent with the lotus born.
It is the silent choirs of petals
Singing the winter’s harmony of uniform beauty.
Love is the song of the soul, singing to God.
It is the balanced rhythmic dance of planets – sun and moon lit
– Paramahansa Yoganada
“Come out of the circle of time And into the circle of love.”
I am ready to forsake this worldly life and surrender to the magnificence of your Being. ~Rumi
The amount of happiness that you have depends on the amount of freedom you have in your heart. – Thich Nhat Hanh
“You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?”
Existence is all around you, celebrating, and you are a part of it. ~Leonard Jacobson
