Float lightly

Life isn’t as serious as my mind makes it out to be.

Eckhart Tolle

Seriousness is not a virtue. It would be a heresy, but a much more sensible heresy, to say that seriousness is a vice. It is really a natural trend or lapse into taking one’s self gravely, because it is the easiest thing to do. For solemnity flows out of men naturally; but laughter is a leap. It is easy to be heavy: hard to be light. Satan fell by the force of gravity.

G. K Chesterton

What pulls on your soul?

In Ireland, a once-in-a-lifetime storm is forecast to pass over today, with extreme winds and heavy rain. Schools and workplaces are closed.

What in your life is calling you

When all the noise is silenced,

The meetings adjourned….

The lists laid aside,

and the wild iris blooms

by itself in the dark forest

What still pulls on your soul?

Rumi

A morning thanksgiving

 

I give thanks for arriving

Safely in a new dawn,

For the gifts of eyes

To see the world,

The gift of mind

To feel at home

In my life.

The waves of possibility

Breaking on the shore of dawn,

The harvest of the past

That awaits my hunger,

And all the furtherings

This new day will bring.

John O Donohue

Sunday Quote: Awareness

Very foggy here in Ireland this morning. Autumn starts early – a “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness

It is more about seeing the moments of joy that are already there rather than having to work hard at creating them.

We are put on earth a little space, 
That we may learn to bear the beams of love.

William Blake
