Present Moment

When you vacate your awareness of the present moment, the present moment continues nonetheless, but your time on the Earth does not.

Be Good

Do not act as if you would live ten thousand years. Death hangs over you. While you live, while it is in your power, be good.

The Little Things

I will look for glimpses of God's goodness in the little things of my life.
I will recognize His blessing in nature, and I will be more aware of His work in the ordinary areas of life --

  • a kind word from a stranger, 
  • a rainbow in the sky, 
  • a bird perched on my windowsill, 
  • a flower blooming in a field.

Imagine, if you can, how dull it would be without such linguistic diversity. Study the origins of words so as to appreciate the great gift of language which God granted us.

Broken Dreams

As children bring their broken toys
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
because He was my friend.
But then, instead of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
with ways that were my own.
At last, I snatched them back and cried,
"How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said,
"What could I do?
"You never did let go."

I'm not interested in compassion that is focused on my death. Real compassion supports my living and supports me when I express my true ... self.

All that has happened before this very second is past. We have absolutely no control over it. All the thinking and praying in the world will not change it.

What is important is that we know right now that yesterday has no power over us any longer. Let yesterday serve as a light on all the lessons we no longer have to go though again.
