There is not enough celebration of companionship. Relationships aren’t just about eroticism and sexuality.

Cheer and Song

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
J. R. R. Tolkien

The Hummingbird

Across the downs a hummingbird
Came dipping through the bowers,
He pivoted on emptiness
To scrutinize the flowers.
-Lava Lane and Other Poems (1925) The First Reforme

A Moving Sea

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. 
Khalil Gibran

Step into the river.

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.

To The Bottle

tolkien2

To The Bottle


To heal my heart and drown my woe


Rain may fall, and wind may blow


And many miles be still to go


But under a tall tree will I lie


And let the clouds go sailing by

― J.R.R. Tolkien

I was struck by the simple truth that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people…

Though my soul may set in darkness,
it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly,
to be fearful of the night.”
― Sarah Williams

Moon and tree

Natures Healing Powers!

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” 
― Rachel CarsonSilent Spring

Nature can heal anyone and anything.

The Drunkard

Drunk Philosophy

I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.
Frank Sinatra

Life verses Snow!

The future lies before you, like paths of pure white snow. Be careful how you tread it, for every step you take will show.

Every step will show!

Poison to the Soul

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
Buddha

Rock sitting

“It is necessary … for a man to go away by himself … to sit on a rock … and ask, ‘Who am I, where have I been, and where am I going?”
Carl Sandburg

Take the time to get to know yourself.
You are the key to your own success in life. – The Nomadic Eagle

How do You handle adversity?

You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
Epicurus

Awake My Soul

Awake My Soul

How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes.
I struggle to find any truth in your lies.
And now my heart stumbles on things I don’t know.
My weakness I feel I must finally show.

Lend me your hand and we’ll conquer them all.
But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall.
Lend me your eyes. I can change what you see.
But your soul you must keep, totally free.

Awake my soul…

In these bodies we will live,
in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love,
you invest your life.

Awake my soul…

For you were made to meet your maker

Awake my soul…

Mumford & Sons

But Your Soul Must Keep Totally Free!

Morning Enlightenment

Enlightening Korean Sunrise

Enlightenment is always there. Small enlightenment will bring great enlightenment. If you breathe in and are aware that you are alive – that you can touch the miracle of being alive – then that is a kind of enlightenment.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Be Yourself!

To be Liked or to be Yourself?

If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.

Margaret Thatcher

Anger

Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.
Aristotle

Think before one acts.

Living life no matter what!

Life changes every minute of every day. You lose friends. You gain friends. You realize your friend wasn’t ever really your good friend. You look for love. You find love. You lose love. You realize that all along you’ve been loved. You laugh. You cry. You laugh so hard that you cry. You do this. You do that. You really wish you hadn’t done that. You learn from that and are glad that you did. You have your ups. You have your downs. You look at others and wish you were them. You then realize who you are and are glad that you are you. You love life. You hate life. BUT in the end, you just find yourself to be living life no matter what. -via Esona Matita Lubuzo

Happiness

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort.  You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it.  You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings.  And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it.  You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
―    Elizabeth Gilbert

Roald Dahl – Good thoughts makes you lovely

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl, The Twits
