My dear Jan,

I laugh nonstop when I’m consumed with happiness. I am 7.
I am swept away by the lightest of kisses. I am 13.
I’m not afraid to speak my mind. I am 18.
I know when not to speak my mind. I am 28.
I know that love takes many forms. I am 35.
I know nothing lasts, so I enjoy everything to the fullest. I am 55.

I am all the ages I’ve ever been.

I'm not ready to let the youthful part of myself go yet.
If maturity means becoming a cynic,
if you have to kill the part of yourself that is naive and romantic and idealistic
- the part of you that you treasure most
- to claim maturity,
is it not better to die young but with your humanity intact?

Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality not as we expect it to be but as it is is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.

People who fight fire with fire end up with only the ashes of their own integrity.

“Love fills everything.
It cannot be desired because it is an end in itself.
It cannot betray because it has nothing to do with possession.
It cannot be held prisoner because it is a river and will overflow its banks.
Anyone who tries to imprison love will cut off the spring that feeds it, and the trapped water will grow stagnant.”

Paulo Coelho

What we need to know about loving is no great mystery.
We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it,
not continually question it.
Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings
us no closer to insight.
We sometimes become too busy classifying,
separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy.

It's we who make it complicated.

Earth teach me stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.
Earth teach me suffering
as the old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility
as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring
as the mother who secures her young.

Earth teach me courage
as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth teach me limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me generation
as the seed which rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.

Try to live an ordinary life,
in a non-ordinary way.

O' GREAT SPIRIT
help me always
to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind
when others speak,
and to remember the peace
that may be found in silence.

Cherokee Prayer


Certain things catch your eye,
But pursue only those
that capture your heart.

LOVE


Gurulugomi

(Buddhist Sage~12th Century AD)

If you develop love truly great,

rid of the desire to hold and possess.

That strong, clean love untarnished by lust,

that love which does not expect to be repayed,

that love which is firm but not grasping,

enduring but not tied down,

gentle and settled,

diamond-hard but unhurting,

helpful but not interfering,

cool and refreshing,

giving more than taking,

dignified but not proud,

soft but not weak,

that love which leads to Enlightenment,

then you will be washed of all ill-will

Laughter comes out of health.
It’s an overflowing energy.
That’s why children can laugh and their laughter is total.
Their whole body is involved in it — when they laugh you
can see their toes laughing.
The whole body, every cell,
every fiber of the body, is laughing and vibrating.
They are so full of health, so vital; everything is flowing.

Mrs Zag

“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are;
we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be.
Each unveils the best part of the other.
No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise.
Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction.
When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person.
Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.”

My emphasis is to increase your cheerfulness, your laughter, because this world is not for the miserable.
This world is not for the people who have become too accustomed to anxiety, anguish.
This world belongs to those who live moment to moment in utter ecstasy.
Cheerfulness, non seriousness, a sense of humor to me are very fundamental qualities of a religious being.

"By three methods we may learn wisdom:

first, by reflection, which is noblest;


second, by imitation, which is easiest;


and third, by experience, which is the most bitter."



Confucius.

Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
