Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.
If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.
Frances Hodgson Burnett – The Secret Garden
Be intent on the perfection of the present day.
The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.
Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.
God waits to win back his own flowers as gifts from man’s hands.
