The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.
Lord Huron - Brother
Some kind of trouble is coming,
Don’t know when, don’t know what,
I will stand by you, brother,
'Til the daylight comes or I'm dead and gone.
What is to give light must first endure burning.

Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
Attract what you expect,
Reflect what you desire,
Become what you respect,
Mirror what you admire.

You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the stars guides you too.
Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like the night to cover others’ faults. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear.
