Till the blossoms have grown,"
Prayed the Tree, while

An emotion is only an emotion



"An emotion is only an emotion. It’s just a small part of your whole being. You are much more than your emotion. An emotion comes, stays for a while, and goes away, just like a storm. If you’re aware of that, you won’t be afraid of your emotions."

Just be quiet inside yourself



“Let the world call you lazy for not running around like a frightened ghost. Just be quiet inside yourself. Simply begin observing without prejudice, projections or desires. Notice how life flows of its own accord. Nothing here is a chaos, but a h

Away to the hill-side on swift little feet,
Trot quick through the meadows in shadow and sun;
Broad brims and deep crowns over brows that are sweet,

Breathe, breathe, breathe...



Life is a sacred gift. Every day is a blessing to be cherished. Every moment is a miracle to behold.

The tree does not say to the rock,
"You are unworthy"

The moon to the ocean: "You are wrong.

Dear Mama Earth

Be careful if you’re driving

or think about the next thing. Walk
with the quiet trees, can you believe
how brave they are—how kind? Model your life
after theirs. Blow kisses
at yourself in the mirror

especially when
you think you
