Listen to the Birds

 

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony.”

—William Henry Channing

 

This is a digital collage of a statue of St. Francis I saw at San Damiano Retreat in Danville, California, and an abstract white bird I found at the steps to the Poor Clares at Immaculate Heart Monastery.

This is available as a greeting card at my Etsy shop.

Weaver of Love and Harmony

 

collage, love and harmony

 

“I weave your name on the loom of my mind.
To make my garment when you come to me.
My loom has ten thousand threads
To make my garment when you come to me.
The sun and moon watch while I weave your name.
These are the wages I get by day and night
To deposit in the lotus bank of my heart.

I weave your name on the loom of my mind
To clean and soften ten thousand threads
And to comb the twists and knots of my thoughts.
No more shall I weave a garment of pain.
For you have come to me, drawn by my weaving,
Ceaselessly weaving your name on the loom of my mind.”

-Kabir in “God Makes the Rivers to Flow” edited by Eknath Easwaran

This Moment Is Yours

 

collage, present moment

 

“Look to this day, for it is life, the very life of life! In its brief course lie all the verities and all the realities of your existence: the bliss of growth; the glory of action; the splendor of beauty. For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision. But today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day!”

– Hindu Scriptures

 

This is a collaborative collage I did with my friends  for Amma’s Circle of Love Letters a few years ago….

Heart Song

 

I have a very musical family. They can pull harmonious melodies out of the air with the same ease as breathing.

“If you hear a voice
inside your heart,
listen . . .
and through that music
you will learn to sing.

When you become
a sheet of music without notes,
your song will sing you.”

-John Squadra, This Ecstasy, Heron Dance Press

 

“Pure music is as big as space. It is God. It is the secret of allowing the sound of the universe to flow through you.”

Amma
