On Sparkling Form


"I beg to differ... I think I'm on sparkling form." - JN

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.

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.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

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.

Rumi (via thecalminside)

Isla Vista victim’s dad shares outrage: The father of a victim in a mass shooting and stabbing near Santa Barbara speaks to CNN’s Kyung Lah about his son.

Insist on yourself. Never imitate. For your own talent you can present every moment with all the force of a lifetime’s cultivation, but of the adopted stolen talents of anybody else you have only a frigid brief extempore half-expression.
