The heart of a human being is no different from the soul of heaven and earth. In your practice always keep in your thoughts the interaction of heaven and earth, water and fire, yin and yang.
“Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people stay for awhile,
and move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to a new understanding,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same…”
Flavia Weedn (1929 – )
It doesn’t matter how old you are, there is a little child within …
This child is still there… inside you… waiting…
Let’s love and treasure this little child.

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again”
Where is your sacred space?
How very simple life would be
If only there were two of me
A Restless Me to drift and roam
A Quiet Me to stay at home.
A Searching One to find his fill
Of varied skies and newfound thrill
While sane and homely things are done
By the domestic Other One.
And that’s just where the trouble lies;
There is a Restless Me that cries
For chancy risks and changing scene,
For arctic blue and tropic green,
For deserts with their mystic spell,
For lusty fun and raising Hell
But shackled to that Restless Me
My Other Self rebelliously
Resists the frantic urge to move.
It seeks the old familiar groove
That habits make. It finds content
With hearth and home dear prisonment,
With candlelight and well loved books
And treasured loot in dusty nooks,
With puttering and garden things
And dreaming while a cricket sings
And all the while the Restless One
Insists on more exciting fun
It wants to go with every tide,
No matter where – just for the ride.
Like yowling cats the two selves brawl
Until I have no peace at all.
One eye turns to the forward track,
The other eye looks sadly back,
I’m getting wall-eyed from the strain,
(It’s tough to have an idle brain)
But One says “Stay” and One says “Go”
And One says “Yes,” and One says “No,”
And One Self wants a home and wife
And One Self craves the drifter’s life.
The Restless Fellow always wins
I wish my folks had made me twins.
( by Don Blanding )
Are you really happy or just comfortable?
“Who are sapiosexuals?” you may ask. In a few words, sapiosexuals are those who fall in love with people’s minds.
Are you sapiosexual? Take the test! 😉
Have you ever fallen in love with the words?
or the books?
Do you appreciate intelligent conversation?
Are you male or female? Well, that does not really matter 😉
Is intelligence the ultimate aphrodisiac for you?
And SMART – the new SEXY?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then I hope you do know someone who is in love with your mind? Someone who wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts? Someone who wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside? Someone, who can’t forget the flavour of your mind?
Hope you do have that special SOMEONE in your life
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.”
From “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert
Look in your mirror and stay awake 😉
