My legacy

My legacy -
What will it be?
Flowers in spring,
The cuckoo in summer,
And the crimson maples
Of autumn ...

For as long as I can remember

"For as long as I can remember, people have liked to talk to me. You.......kind of how somebody says something to doesn't have to mean so much. It's just that it opens a door for you, and you can see into a room that you couldn't see into before. It doesn't really matter how you got there. The important part're seeing something new and different."

~Allie Keys, Stephen Spielberg's "Taken"

Truth can be found

"Truth can be found anywhere. We are part of the universe, as a Whole. But each of our viewpoints is that of a distinct, dynamic space-time coordinate. Imagination is the memory of that connection."

The soul

"It is pointed out by science in the form of the various energies of the world, from nuclear fusion in the stars, to life, to soul. In all these ways, the universe is ablaze! Fire is the archetypal energy. It represents the ultimate, of which all other energies are special manifestations. Everything is illumined and animated from within by Divine Fire. God is in the world as `a universal transparency aglow with fire.'"

~Teilhard de Chardin

We put ourselves

"We put ourselves in boxes that seem impenetrable....but they are only put there by our own doing...boxes can be opened and new things/places/people discovered. Life is really more than what we see and hear with our eyes and is lived through our hearts."

-- Thea Graham

Until one has loved

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.

~A. France

To recognize

"To recognize the sacred is not so much to see new things, as it is to see things in a new way. The sacred is not separate or different from all things, but rather hidden within all things…"

So I feel like

"So, I feel like I am sitting in the middle of the storm, while the world is holding its breath. That, or I have already slipped quietly into the long night of absolute madness....."
