Look at the past as a road of memories and the future as a path of untraveled dreams.
Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace. - Frederick Buechner
LIFE IS ETERNAL:
When you walk through a forest that has not been tamed and interfered with by man, you will see not only abundant life all around you, but you will also encounter fallen trees and decaying trunks, rotting leaves and decomposing matter at every step. Wherever you look, you will find death as well as life. Upon closer scrutiny, however, you will discover that the decomposing tree trunk and rotting leaves not only give birth to new life, but are full of life themselves. Microorganisms are at work. Molecules are rearranging themselves. So death isn’t to be found anywhere. There is only the metamorphosis of life forms.
That’s what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too. - Paulo Coelho

When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless, but when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.
Understand that no one is greater than another. Feel it. Practice helping another. We are all rowing the same boat. If we don’t pull together, our plants are going to be awfully lonely.

Seek out wisdom in books, rare manuscripts and cryptic poems if you will, but seek it out also in simple stones and fragile herbs and in the cries of wild birds. Listen to the whisperings of the wind and the roar of water if you would discover magick, for it is here that the old secrets are preserved.

Let the water settle; you will see moon and stars, mirrored in your being. - Rumi
Coffee never knew how good it could taste before it met sugar, water and milk. We friends are just the same. We are good but when we meet we become the best.
