Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.

Lao Tzu (via mariposadesueno)

I have to see that there is a space between thoughts.  A void that is reality, and I need to remain as long as possible in this space.  Then another kind of thinking appears, clear and intelligent, a thought of another level, another dimension.

– Jeanne de Salzmann “The Reality of Being“ (via Luke Storms)

Marigold and Muse: FOR LONGING →

Blessed be the longing that brought you here
And quickens your soul with wonder.

May you have the courage to listen to the voice of desire
That disturbs you when you have settled for something safe.

May you have the wisdom to enter generously into your own unease
To discover the new direction your longing wants you to take.

May the forms of your belonging – in love, creativity and friendship
Be equal to the grandeur and the call of your soul.

May the one you long for long for you.
May your dreams gradually reveal the destination of your desire.

May a secret Providence guide your thought and nurture your feeling
May your mind inhabit your life with the sureness with which your body inhabits the world.

May your heart never be haunted by ghost-structures of old damage.
May you come to accept your longing as divine urgency.

May you know the urgency with which God longs for you.
