This message is from a commencement speech made by a Pulitzer
Prize-winning author, Anna Quindlen, at Villanova University.


Lilies Of The Field
-- By Anna Quindlen



I'm a novelist. My work is human nature. Real life is all I know. Don't ever confuse the two, your life and your work.

You will walk out of here this afternoon with only one thing that no one else has. There will be hundreds of people out there with your same degree; there will be thousands of people doing what you want to do for a living. But you will be the only person alive who has sole custody of your life.

Your particular life. Your entire life. Not just your life at a desk, or your life on a bus, or in a car, or at the computer. Not just the life of your mind, but the life of your heart. Not just your bank account but your soul.

People don't talk about the soul very much anymore. It's so much easier to write a resume than to craft a spirit. But a resume is a cold comfort on a winter night, or when you're sad, or broke, or lonely, or when you've gotten back the test results and they're not so good.

Here is my resume: I am a good mother to three children. I have tried never to let my profession stand in the way of being a good parent. I no longer consider myself the center of the universe. I show up. I listen. I try to laugh. I am a good friend to my husband. I have tried to make marriage vows mean what they say.

I am a good friend to my friends, and they to me. Without them, there would be nothing to say to you today, because I would be a cardboard cutout. But I call them on the phone, and I meet them for lunch. I would be rotten, or at best mediocre at my job, if those other things were not true. You cannot be really first rate at your work if your work is all you are.

So here's what I wanted to tell you today: Get a life. A real life, not a manic pursuit of the next promotion, the bigger paycheck, the larger house.

Do you think you'd care so very much about those things if you blew an aneurysm one afternoon, or found a lump in your breast? Get a life in which you notice the smell of salt water pushing itself on a breeze over Seaside Heights, a life in which you stop and watch how a red tailed hawk circles over the water or the way a baby scowls with concentration when she tries to pick up a Cheerio with her thumb and first finger. Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure, it is work. Pick up the phone. Send an e-mail. Write a letter.

Get a life in which you are generous. And realize that life is the best thing ever, and that you have no business taking it for granted. Care so deeply about its goodness that you want to spread it around. Take money you would have spent on beers and give it to charity. Work in a soup kitchen. Be a big brother or sister.

All of you want to do well. But if you do not do good too, then doing well will never be enough.

It is so easy to waste our lives, our days, our hours, our minutes. It is so easy to take for granted the color of our kids' eyes, the way the melody in a symphony rises and falls and disappears and rises again.

It is so easy to exist instead of to live. I learned to live many years ago. I learned to love the journey, not the destination. I learned that it is not a dress rehearsal, and that today is the only guarantee you get.

I learned to look at all the good in the world and try to give some of it back because I believed in it, completely and utterly. And I tried to do that, in part, by telling others what I had learned. By telling them this:

Consider the lilies of the field. Look at the fuzz on a baby's ear. Read in the backyard with the sun on your face. Learn to be happy. And think of life as a terminal illness, because if you do, you will live it with joy and passion as it ought to be lived.

Love Always

Pictured: The stunning snowflakes that look like diamonds in the sky
As snow blizzards sweep across the country many want are eager to see the back of this Arctic winter.
But scientist Kenneth Libbrecht is excited by the prospect of sub zero temperatures, snow blizzards and arctic winds.
Using a specially designed photo-microscope the Professor of Physics at the California Institute of Technology, has spent the last 11 years catching and photographing tiny snowflakes.

Showcased in his latest book, "Snowflakes" these amazingly detailed images show the unique crystal formation of snowflakes.
'When I first began toying with the idea of writing a book about snowflakes, I found that there weren't any really nice pictures out there,' the 50-year-old said.
'The state-of-the-art in snowflake photography was not what it could have been.
'This was an opportunity, so I set out to design and build a photo-microscope that was optimised for taking pictures of snowflakes.'















Love Always

Hello, such a beauty-full thread! Mudra, many thanks. I have a short video to post about the love that animals can demonstrate for us. Please forgive me if someone already posted this. I tried to look through but there are so many pages and I get lost in the love. If I stay in the love zone, I'll not get this one posted. The little dog in the vid is a rat terrier. I adopted a rescue rat terrier two years ago. Her name was Baby Girl. She looks almost exactly like the puppy in the video. Enjoy. Love to you all. Linda

“We live in initiatory times when each soul can feel more isolated amidst the dying breath of one world and uncertain about the umbilical pulsing of the next.

“…It’s not the lack of time that modern people suffer from, but a lack of connection to things timeless, mythic and eternal…

“As the veil lifts on the wounded cycles of both nature and culture, the symbolic sense of re-viewing and re-valuing life can lead to both new ideas and the return of genuine knowledge and earthly wisdom.” ~From Michael Meade: “The World Behind the World ~ Living at the Ends of Time”

Love Always

“WHERE THERE IS LOVE THERE IS BEAUTY”

Follow the heart not the mind
the security blanket has been stripped
a
w
a
y
that we can learn

how to surrender
to the evolving
consciousness
of the mystery

(or
we
can
cling
to the arisings
of fear
and anxiety)…

yet
if
we
can
meet
experience
a
l
l
o
w
and liberate our emotions
by in~viting
their purification
to clear space
w i t h i n u s
we can attune
ever~more swiftly
to our True Nature;
our genuine contentment

the Flower of Peace that dawns
in the sunrise of our hearts
Petals
glistening
pulsing like ancient chants
to primordial winds
the crystal of our Soul irradiates
its clear reflection

…the journey is the Journey…

Time Is
The Spiraling Wheel of Being
everlasting un destroyed invincible awareness garden
of being’s Song; leaves of Life green
with action and drive to be

sentient light
we talk with our intentions
silent prayers, converse with the eternal and greet
the unborn
v
a
s
t

omniscient ripe potential the fruit of your seed,
from yellow to red we emerge orange
the Drumbeat of the Sun’s burning kiss quickens
the heat
of spiritual survival
…purpose arriving…

we have

Entered The Gate Into The Next Realm
(*turning away from our conscience is not an option*)
the path
is lit by the fires of love
universal
glowing embers of spirit in-forming
trans-forming, trans-muting, mutating, redeeming
Water on the Wounds to Flow

We are the shamans tending the universal fire of Love
We are the Source~er~ers pouring Sanctuary
from the Ocean’s Mercies,
scripts of Forgiveness bathing us clean

We are the Emissaries of New Culture dawning
the Art of our Lives is the Quest of the Universe
As Children of Prophecy’s Rainbow
We hold high the Banner of Truth

oneness ~ One Web
one rippling
conversation of spirit and matter
communing with form and infinity
penetrating the domain of psyche’s Mandala
circles
squares
golden mean
13 to the 20
what is the 4 to the 5?

who is?
The Mother of Zero
The Queen of Source
The Midwife of No~Thing
The Vessel of No~Where
The Priestess of Now
The Empress of Emptiness

Let us walk in the Fullness
of heart renewed
by our ancestor’s tears
crying in our fractal halos
circulating concepts of sin and purity

but
our Matrix is creation
the All lives Us

We are the threads of energy
woven as a Shawl
protecting
GrandMother Universe’s
Womb of Stars
That Births Our Essence

…nested in the astral mountains of dedication and vigilance
over and over again
each breath
that we can receive
consciously
is our clue;

our hint from the smiling guardians
who watch
over our renewal and hold us
as
we
learn
to let in
our worth
to free the channels
that wrap and veil
suffocating our spirits
into acquiescing
for an illusion…

LET THE CANVAS OF LIGHT
SHINE
BLANK
WITH THE MISSION OF LOVE

dancing its chapters
blooming its melodies
the birds of our messenger hearts are sharing feathers
of Faith, plumed resplendence,
perfection of celestial harmony dripping
pools of color
portals to now ~ here ’s
cascade
of simple brilliance
natural clarity

EFFORTLESS
like Smoke rising
like Lungs rising and falling
they do it by themselves
who are We to think We do any~thing?

like Waves rising and falling,
throbbing and swallowing separation
like angel painting prayers on the tree rings of our solar orbiting cycles
one unending sacred simultaneity
zen-petal remembrance sparkling illumination

the Dance is Steps
Rising
one after the next
as soon as
the
moment
lives
it
too
dies
and
is
re~
born
as
the Uncreated Eternal of
which
We Are
Its Pristine Cracked Reflection;

A mirror of stillness in Flight

Where Rainbow Rises

~Written on Yellow Cosmic Star/4 Ahau; 1300 Days before 13.0.0.0.0.

Love Always

OLD VOWS MADE NEW

Just down the lane an old walnut grew,

All boles and knots and now branches few,

It's an old, old tree with many tales to tell,

But at it's base a living tale does dwell.

In a bole is a hole, spanned by a windowed green door,

Another hole a window, from which a warm, gold glow does pour,

Up to the window, now quietly sneak,

Into the yellow, slowly take a peek,

Careful now don't even make a squeak,

As the gold enfolds you, your eyes start to tear,

A full toothed smile spreads ear to ear.

Inside the glow is a room, all purple and green,

Two wooden chairs and wooden table between,

In the center a bowl with two berries and a large green bean,

On either side two candles pouring forth their bright sheen.

Careful now, listen to what you hear,

Two sets of footsteps softly pad,

Two gentle old figures out of the shadows appear,

Two furry hamsters, cheerfully clad.

There's Pemberton, green trousers, a large gold watch and a purple shirt,

And Penny, a green blouse, and pretty purple skirt,

Brown fringe on the skirt circles her knees,

She wears a bright yellow apron all covered in bees.

And a purple bow ribbon in her hair,

They both gently smile as each takes their chair.

Across the table his hand reaches for hers,

"Come dear, step outside before we eat",

She dons a shawl, green slippers and her small clutch purse,

He grabs a jacket, a feathered felt cap and slippers for his feet.

Her hand in his, as they head outside.

Hurry, get away from the window, their coming, quick hide.

As the door opens a warm glow grows,

But from two old hearts filled with love,

A different radiance flows,

Their eyes shine, filled with the moon up above.

In the glow of their door light and the soft spring moon,

We hear crickets and bull frogs croon their favorite tune.

Listen close, they're about to speak;

"Dearest Penny, the years filled my heart with the warmest love for you",

"My darling Penny, for you, my heart has grown in deepening love too",

We watch, two rings seal the bond, Old Vows Made New.

And as we turn and away we sneak,

We haven't been caught, but rightly we miss,

An old bond of love sealed with a kiss.

THE MAN IN THE MOON

A night of dreams and wonder makes hearts, the unseen things ponder.

Ethereal voices to open hearts speak, young souls listen as they seek.

Into one such night let us take a peek.

Twas a midsummer night as a brown-haired lad and a lass with golden tresses, walked the woods near each of their homes. The air was clear, charged with magic, and the sky was full of heavenly lights. It was hard to tell where the earth stopped and the heavens started. But for the trees, which rooted the imagination to the ground, all would be blended into a mass of shadows and twinkling lights. A night of mystery, tinted with premonition.

His home on one side of the sea, hers the other. Each one walking beneath their country sky. Two places, one sky. Two hearts, one wonder to behold eight short hours apart.

Slowly all the lights grew dim as the sky above the lass filled with the brilliance of a rising full Moon. As the glowing orb rose above the earth, a face within the light appeared. A pair of charcoal eyes opened with a blink and a cheery voice said, "hello".

Leaning on a sturdy branch, up in her favorite tree, the young girl warily looked up into a smiling face and replied with a hesitant, "hi".

And then the Man in the Moon began to speak. " O lassie young and fair, to you I have a message to share. Someday to a far off land you'll go. Young children are to be placed into your care, but that's not all that will happen while you are there. In this land you will meet a young man whose life you will share. On one distant night your hearts will become one as into his eyes you stare." With that the eyes did close and with a knowing smile the Man in the Moon did set. But the message she heard she would never forget.

Slowly all the lights grew dim as the sky above the lad filled with the brilliance of a rising full Moon. As the glowing orb rose above the earth, a face within the light appeared. A pair of charcoal eyes opened with a blink and a cheery voice said, "hello".

Sitting on a sturdy branch, part way up his favorite tree, the young boy curiously looked up into a smiling face and shot back a rather shaky, "hi".

And then the Man in the Moon began to speak. "My young friend, to you I have a message to share. Some day a young lass will travel to this land. Her love and yours will be bound with a marriage band. She will light up your life as the sun does me and that glow will illumine the hearts of others as from you both it does flow.

With that the eyes did close and with a knowing smile the Man in the Moon did set. But the message he heard he would never forget.

A night of dreams and wonder makes hearts, the unseen things ponder.

Ethereal voices to open hearts speak, young souls listen as they seek.

Into another such night let us take a peek.

On the horizon the Moon started to rise as a young man with brown hair and a young woman with golden tresses, went for a walk. The air was clear, charged with magic, and the sky was full of heavenly lights. It was hard to tell where the earth stopped and the heavens started. A night of mystery, tinted with recognition. As each approached, they paid each other no heed, two strangers in a stranger place. Not far apart, each turned, side by side, to face the rising Moon. Each was lost in thoughts and dreams of days gone by. Slowly all the other lights grew dim as the sky filled with the brilliance of a full Moon. As the glowing orb rose above the earth, a face within the light appeared. A pair of charcoal eyes opened with a blink and a cheery, familiar voice said, "hello".

With resting arms on a fieldstone wall, two sets of eyes, remembering a similar night, looked up and a simultaneous reply was heard, "hi". Startled at the sound of the other's voice, two pairs of eyes turned and met and locked.

And then the Man in the Moon began to speak. "You both remember the night you talked with the Man in the Moon, this night as you look into each other's eyes, your memories and lives are becoming one".

With that the eyes did close and with a knowing smile the Man in the Moon did set. But a journey together just began for two not so unfamiliar strangers, who just met.
