Tell any living thing about your love. This is how we are born & blessed ~ with an endless capacity to love & care for all life. Look at any young child and believe. Look at the courageous survivors of war and poverty. Stand up for your inherent right to love and be loved ~ and don’t let anyone or anything take that away from you.
….endless capacity….to give & receive love….
Dona nobis pacem (Latin) ~ Give us peace
Speranta moare ultima (Romanian) ~ Hope dies last.
(I sing these to the waves and the wind every morning)
“With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair,
a stone of hope.” ~ M.L. King
(some say hope is futile; some doctors say it is life-saving; some never know it; some never let it go)
“This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression…
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent as a guide.”
~from Guest House by RUMI
(the journey is all we have…learning as we go…hoping for a chance to make a positive difference)
