The soil in which the meditative mind can begin is the soil of everyday life, the strife, the pain, and the fleeting joy. It must begin there, and bring order, and from there move endlessly. But if you are concerned only with making order, then that very order will bring about its own limitation, and the mind will be its prisoner. In all this movement you must somehow begin from the other end, from the other shore, and not always be concerned with this shore or how to cross the river. You must take a plunge into the water, not knowing how to swim. And the beauty of meditation is that you never know where you are, where you are going, what the end is. J. Krishnamurti

We run around so much with the best intentions I want to save the rain forest. I’ve gotta clean up the oceans. I’ve gotta save the dolphins.

Right at that moment it was as if we were the only two people left in the world. And I don’t mean that to sound corny; it just honestly did. The only sounds were the droning crickets and chip chips of the bats, the farawy wind against the sand, and the occasional distant yowl of a dingo. There were no car horns.No trains. No jack hammers. No lawnmowers No planes. No sirens. No alarms. No anything human. If you’d told me that you’d saved me from a nuclear holocaust, I might have believed you. Lucy Christopher

Your days are short here; this is the last of your springs. And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of Heaven. You will go away with old, good friends. And don’t forget when you leave why you came. Adlai Stevenson II

None of your knowledge, your reading, your connections will be of any use here two legs suffice, and big eyes to see with. Walk alone, across mountains or through forests. You are nobody to the hills or the thick boughs heavy with greenery. You are no longer a role, or a status, not even an individual, but a body, a body that feels sharp stones on the paths, the caress of long grass and the freshness of the wind. When you walk, the world has neither present nor future nothing but the cycle of mornings and evenings. Always the same thing to do all day walk. But the walker who marvels while walking the blue of the rocks in a July evening light, the silvery green of olive leaves at noon, the violet morning hills has no past, no plans, no experience. He has within him the eternal child. While walking I am but a simple gaze. Frédéric Gros

In so doing, the natural, beautiful, and healing rhythms of life have a chance to start singing their sweet song in our listening ear. Donna Goddard
