I'm excited about who I really am!


I'm excited about who I really am!
     No, I didn't just find out
     I am Bill Gate's daughter,
     or win a prize,
     or graduate with honors;
It's much more subtle than that.

I found out, well,
there are no words to express it.

I found out I am happiness
     through and through,
     except when I forget it.
    
I found out I can love
     more and more
          and more and more
                     and more.

Yes, there are no words;
     and I am eternally grateful:
     Grateful that I,
     Grateful that I am that I am,
     Grateful I am that,
Grateful I am God's Love Shining.

Today's Today


Often we forget that today is here.
We pass from day to day not noticing
that it is today.
Never again will it be "today's today".

Ocean of Faith

Live in Direct Relationship to Reality


Turn away from
books, ideas, and theories. 
Enlightenment can only be realized
by living in direct relationship to reality.
Books, ideas, and theories 
don't go deep enough.

Choose Life



LIFE is the deepest mystery. No one gets to the bottom of life. We live day by day, breath by breath. Philosophy, medicine, biology, and “rocket science” may all give us insights. The unfolding life mystery delights my soul. I love unsolvable, unanswerable questions. All I know is that with each breath we choose life.

Robert Frost - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
