A New Dawn

“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. ”

–Rumi

Circle Dance

Tickling the green

A beautiful spring day and sacred circle dancing led by Maureen and Andrea at my neighborhood park…

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul.”
—John Muir

“I know nothing, except what everyone knows if there when Graces dances, I should dance.”—W. H. Auden

“The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.”—Empedocles

“When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open, and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.”—Michael Bridge
