“I rarely let the word No escape
From my mouth
Because it is so plain to my soul
That God has shouted, Yes! Yes! Yes!
To every luminous movement in Existence.”
—Hafiz quoted in “Power of Intention”, Dr. Wayne Dyer
“The radiance in some places is so great as to be fairly dazzling . . . every crystal, every flower a window opening into heaven, a mirror reflecting the Creator.”—John Muir
This reminds me of the section in the Christmas carol, “O Holy Night”:
“A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.”
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
“Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep. ”
