when I feel connected to life, then many of my daily actions have a creative touch : conversations with friends and strangers alike, the way I handle challenges at work, even cooking. and then there are those other days, when I manage to get everything done, but some energy is missing and with it the creative force. I think finding joy and meaning also in times when I feel less connected is also a creative act.
I have started some time ago to express gratitude, and although sometimes it’s a bit suprising for both sides (it’s not really part of the culture I live in..), it is always a spark of light, and what do we need more than light in this challenging days? a handwritten note, for me, is one of the ‘highest’ forms of expressing gratitude. when I had to take care of some paperwork for my mother recently I found literally hundreds of letters and cards that she had received over the years fr...
I have started some time ago to express gratitude, and although sometimes it’s a bit suprising for both sides (it’s not really part of the culture I live in..), it is always a spark of light, and what do we need more than light in this challenging days? a handwritten note, for me, is one of the ‘highest’ forms of expressing gratitude. when I had to take care of some paperwork for my mother recently I found literally hundreds of letters and cards that she had received over the years from children, grandchildren, family, friends, hiking partners and on and on. it showed me in a new light what a kind and precious person she has always been. I am very lucky to be able to care for her these days.
I am rich through tasting your many many riches and rejoicing in them. I am rich because there are wise beings who share their Wisdom and Love generously. I am rich because my world turned from black&white to color to gold. I am rich that even when I loose my path, my friends find myriads of ways to call me back on track. I am rich because kindness lights my heart in dark hours. I am rich because I made someone smile today
I love to imagine how the two of you create an amazing house full of warmth and art! And how would your companion be able to do her work if you wouldn’t provide such a stable environment? hope she knows how to voice her appreciation…
what a beautiful morning gift 🌞!
a smooth and quick recovery for you, may you be able to transform all your traumatic challenges into means of awakening 🙏
with one exception, if I am allowed to say: ‘no one has ever become poor by giving’ thank you
Dear Ed, I am awed by this prayer 🙏. not only echo the words a very intimate part of my soul. it is that also some 30 years ago Daskalos has touched my life in short, precise and meaningful way. as I quoted Rilke in a letter to a friend just some days ago: ‘ich lebe mein Leben in wachsenden Ringen’
congrats, dear Trish, if every separated couple would look at each other with this kind of eyes, what a rich environment this was for children and grandchildren and what an inspiring example for everybody in love and in loss of love 😍
‘ when I entered God, my vision became like His, it flooded out over existence, I knew no limits ‘ 😍 Rabia?, Rumi? who cares…
