New Year's Eve

New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.

Life and Love

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing

Christmas Candle

Getting More Than We Give

Do not stand on a high pedestal and
take 5 cents in your hand and say,
"here, my poor man",
but be grateful that the poor man is there,
so by making a gift to him you are able to help yourself.

It is not the reciever that is blessed, but it is the giver.

Be thankful that you are allowed to exercise
your power of benevolence and mercy in the world,
and thus become pure and perfect.

- Swami Vivekananda (Indian Spiritual leader)

Bounces and Bumps

Our lives disconnect and reconnect, we move on, and later we may again touch one another, again bounce away. This is the felt shape of a human life ... this bouncey-castle sequence of bumpings-into and tumblings-apart.

Last Post

Spats cover
Polluted boots
With a Sam Browne strapped
To a spit and polish belt
Tightened by the sergeant
Holding him there
Completely trapped.

Deathly still
Mourning loss
Hobnailed by the flagpole
With a drooping ensign
In a two-minute silence
Like three hours on a cross.

Numb lips
This November
And another year
As the guns die down
In posthumous salute
While the note splits
In the mouth of momentary fear.

The bugle fades
Echoing round

As darkness descends
On Greenwich Mean Time
Across Whitehall
And the sands of an Afghan desert
While Calvary shares the silence.

Crinkled leaves
Float down
On their parachute trip
With legions of poppies
Papered for today
As a tear rolls down
To a stiff upper lip.

Teeth chatter
Feet freeze
With winter ahead
On count-down to Reveille
And the beginning of spring
While sheathed swords
Honour the glorious dead.

Shift Towards Peace

Rather than talking about peace or forgiveness,
let's talk about trust, dignity, our shared humanity,
and the one hundred thousand other steps it takes
to finally achieve peace and forgiveness. ...

There is no "magic" square metre, or hilltop, or valley,
that if ceded by one side to the other will bring about
peace in the Middle East.

Peace can only come bout after an internal shift --
on both sides.

What we need is respect, and the inner strength
to refuse to hate.

Then we will achieve peace.

Wearing Your Life

Your life feels different on you once you greet death and understand your heart's position.

Sand and Stone

When someone hurts us,
we should write it down in sand,
where winds of forgiveness can erase it away.

When someone does something good for us,
we must engrave it in stone,
where no wind can ever erase it.

Learn to write your hurts in sand, and to carve your benefits in stone.

Eternal Love

They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it.
Death cannot kill what never dies.
Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle, the root and record of their friendship.
If absence be not death, neither is theirs.
Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still.

as the round earth rolls.

Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present - love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure - the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth.

Living Humanely

Over the years I have developed a picture of what a human being living humanely is like. She is a person who understands, values and develops her body, finding it beautiful and useful; a person who is real and is willing to take risks, to be creative, to manifest competence, to change when the situation calls for it, and to find ways to accommodate to what is new and different, keeping that part of the old that is still useful and discarding what is not.

Long View

Aldo Leopold, the early 20th century's Henry David Thoreau, said that we should think like a mountain, with a sense of permanence and a long view.

At the beginning of the 21st century, we are at a peak of human power, wealth and information...

We need to look back at our wonderful natural and human heritage, and cherish and protect the abundant values to be found there.

We need to look out to the sides and see other parts of the world that need our help and can provide good ideas to go forward...

We need to look ahead to be certain that our actions of today will make the world a better and richer and more varied place for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.

- Robert Bateman

Good Marriage

A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude.
Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue to exist,
a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole and against a wide sky.

Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.

It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.

Creating Your Future

The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created; created first in the mind and will, created next in activity.

Becoming More

What a man can be, he must be. This need we may call self-actualization…It refers to the desire for self-fulfillment, namely, to the tendency for him to become actualized in what he is potentially.

Educate Girls

Once you educate the boys, they tend to leave the villages and go search for work in cities. But the girls stay home, become leaders in the community and pass on what they've learned.

We must be willing to get rid
of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
The old skin has to be shed
before the new one can come.

- Joseph Campbell
