Words of Wisdom -- Not Mine!

Sun says, "Be your own illumination." Wren says, "Sing your heart out, all day long." Garden says, "Be unafraid of winter. This fallow time leads naturally to spring." Sream says, "Do not stop for any obstacle." Oak says, "When the wind blows, bend easily, and trust your roots to hold." Stars say, "What you see is one small slice of a single modest galaxy." Remember that the vastness cannot be grasped by mind. Ant says, "Small does not mean powerless." Silence says nothing. In the quiet, everything comes clear. I say, "Limitless." I say, "Yes."

"What you do for yourself -- any gesture of kindness, any gesture of gentleness, any gesture of honesty and clear seeing toward yourself -- will affect how you experience your world. In fact, it will transform how you experience the world. What you do for yourself, you're doing for others, and what you do for others, you're doing for yourself."
