Peace

bread-1081841_960_720

Peace
in a cup of tea.
Peace
in a plate of olives.

Practice words
or silence.

Either way,
to melt,
to melt,
can be yours…the unblinking reality
of ecstasy at dawn.

Loves, let’s herald the morning;

let’s bow with a mouthful of bread.

Love Will Heal Our Planet

heart-700141_960_720

We cannot judge the ignorant and awaken at the same time.

We cannot hate those who hate and awaken at the same time.

 

Compassion is the place where all paths go.

Love is the place where all the paths go.

 

Each moment of love: a moment where we free ourselves from bondage, where we free ourselves from all the histories of violence and oppression on Earth.

 

When we put down judgment, love is there.

When we put down hate, love is there.

When we put down disagreement, love is there.

When we put down the need to be “right,” love is there.

 

Love is just naturally there.

It is always there.

 

This is what will heal our planet. This and only this.

Mantra for a Bad Day

plant-2318936_960_720

When my mind is racing, breathe.
When my heart is pounding, breathe.
When my spirit is breaking, breathe.

When my mind is doubting, breathe.
When my heart is sinking, breathe.
When my spirit is flagging, breathe.

When my mind is collapsing, breathe.
When my heart is exploding, breathe.
When my spirit is suffering, breathe.

When the world seems total shit, breathe.
When one more minute
seems one more minute too many, breathe.

When I want to scream and cry.
When everything,
every damned thing,
seems horribly wrong, breathe.

Breathe.

Just Breathe.
