What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,

the master calls a butterfly.

Passionately obsessed by anything we love–

an avalanche of magic

flattens the way ahead,

levels rules, reasons, dissents,

bears us with it  over chasms, fears, doubts.

Without the power of that love…

Have you ever felt so at one with the world,

with the universe, with everything that is,

that you were overcome with love?

That is reality. That is the truth.

What we make of it is up to us,

as the painting of the sunrise is up to the artist.

In our world humanity has strayed from that love.

It lives hatred and power struggles

and manipulations of the earth itself

for its own narrow reasons.

Continue and no one will see the sunrise.

The sunrise will always exist, of course,

but people on earth will know nothing of it

and finally even stories of its beauty

will fade from our knowing.

You don’t want a million answers

as much as you want

a few forever questions.

The questions are diamonds

you hold in the light.

Study a lifetime

and you see different colors

from the same jewel.

Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you.

All they show is limitation.

Look with your understanding,

find out what you already know,

and you’ll see the way to fly.

The bond that links your true family
is not one of blood,
but of respect
and joy in each other’s life.

The creative, loving-something life

is also the healthy one.

There is healing and protection

in doing what makes you happy.

Any powerful idea

is absolutely fascinating

and absolutely useless

until you decide to put it to work.

It is as It Is

Everything is exactly as it is for a reason.
The crumb on your table is
no mystical reminder of this morning’s cookie,
it is there because you have
chosen not to remove it.

No exceptions.

Reality of Love

Know that ever about
you stands the reality of love,
and each moment
you have the power
to transform your world
by what you have learned.
