An eye is meant to see things. The soul is here for its own joy.
|A Cottage by the Sea||
The more we practice being present, the less frequently our minds will wander back to the past of forward to the future.
The beauty of real, intense, single-minded desire is that it gets us up in the morning.
Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike.
John Muir, quoted in www.gratefulness.org
Darkness is always present alongside the light. Pure light blinds; shadows are required for our seeing. We know the light most fully in contrast with its opposite—the dark.
On the day of liberation you will laugh but what is on the day of laughter is also now.
Sri Ramana Maharshi
