“Just living is not enough,”
said the butterfly.
“One must have sunshine,
freedom and a little flower.”
Hans Christian Andersen

Caught in The Act : The Butterfly Emerges

“The mark of your ignorance is
the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,
the master calls a butterfly.”

Richard Bach

See How Her Tulips Glow

Radient Glow

” … no girl had ever moved me with a story
of spiritual suffering and so beautifully her
soul showing out radiant as an angel
wandering in hell and the hell the
selfsame streets I’d roamed in watching,
watching for someone just like her
and never dreaming
the darkness and the mystery
and eventuality of our meeting in eternity.”

Jack Kerouac

“I embrace emerging experience.
I participate in discovery.
I am a butterfly.
I am not a butterfly collector.
I want the experience of the butterfly.”
William Stafford

Let The Light Shine Through

Let The Light Shine Through

“From within or from behind,
a light shines through us upon things,
and makes us aware that we are nothing,
but the light is all.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Only Fractured Within

“The goal of spiritual practice is full recovery,
and the only thing you need to recover
from is a fractured sense of self.”
Marianne Williamson

A Path Before The Fall

“Pursue some path,
however narrow and crooked,
in which you can walk with love and reverence.”

Henry David Thoreau

Fields of Freedom

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,

the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.”

Simply Bee

“Give up defining yourself –
to yourself or to others.
You won’t die.
You will come to life.
And don’t be concerned
with how others define you.
When they define you,
they are limiting themselves,
so it’s their problem.
Whenever you interact with people,
don’t be there primarily as a function or a role,
but as the field of conscious Presence.
You can only lose something that you have,
but you cannot lose something that you are.”
Eckhart Tolle

Beautiful Forces

“There is a force in the universe,
which, if we permit it, will flow through us
and produce miraculous results.”

Mahatma Gandhi
