Love and compassion…

“In this earth in this earth in this immaculate field we shall not plant any seeds except for compassion except for love”~Rumi♥

Being true to yourself…

I believe being true to yourself is almost like a skill that has to be learned. There is very subtle line between the acting out of respect, because of certain rules, because we have to, because we don’t want to hurt others and the recognition of what feels right

Dare to be. Wild.

Children…

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable

~ Kahlil Gibran

Wonder…

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering. ~ Saint Augustine
