The only thing we can truly bequeath to the next generation are Roots and Wings. I hope this blog inspires you to share yours.
Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,
what batters you becomes your strength.
Move back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.
In this uncontainable night,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.
And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am."
Sonnets to Orpheus II, 29
we restore the world to wholeness.
Our seemingly separate lives
as we discover
how truly necessary we are to each other."
"The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community."
Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness
hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these
things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world
that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the
only thing in this world that does not hurt."
