Synchronized Flight!

Happiness is when what you think,
what you say,
and what you do are in harmony.

Awaken

Lotus 1

Let your breath awaken the sleeping giant,
Your words whisper in his ears
Arouse him shaking his shoulders
Guide him, your answers calming his fears.

Raise your voice profoundly in tone,
Gather the forgotten making them one
Summon scholars reknowned; those who toil in the sun.

Within the fabric are many threads,
Under the cloak it widely spreads
From snow-capped mountains to arid plains
Through laughter and tears, courage remains,

From ones in darkness to those within the light,
They bar their souls weeping in the night
Let your breath awakening the human spirit be your plight.

Bee Orchid (Ophrys apifera)

Did I offer peace today?
Did I bring a smile to someone’s face?
Did I say words of healing?
Did I let go of my anger and resentment?
Did I forgive?
Did I love?
These are the real questions.
I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

Today I choose life.
Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy,
happiness, negativity, pain…
To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices –
today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

唐招提寺苔庭1

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,
so virtue appears from good deeds,
and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life,
one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

Summer dreaming!

You must live in the present,
launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.
