There is no force

in the world

better able

to alter anything

from its course

than love.

~Father Greg Boyle

(1953 to pres., Jesuit Priest)


Let go

March 19, 2018

Don’t recall.

Let go of what has passed.

Don’t imagine.

Let go of what may come.

Don’t think.

Let go of what is happening now.

Don’t examine.

Let go of trying to figure anything out.

Don’t control.

Let go of trying to make anything happen.

Rest. Relax.

Right now, just rest.


(988-1069, Bengali Mahasiddha

of Anuttarayoga Tantra)

Here We Are God

March 18, 2018

Here we are God –

a planet at prayer.

Attune our spirits

that we may hear your harmonies

and bow before your creative power,

that we may face our violent discords

and join with your Energy

to make heard in every heart

your hymn of peace.

Here we are God –

a militarized planet.

Transform our fears

that we may transform our war fields

into wheat fields,

arms into handshakes, missiles

into messengers of peace.

Here we are God –

a polluted planet.

Purify our vision

that we may perceive ways

to purify our beloved lands,

cleanse our precious waters,

de-smog our life giving air.

Here we are God –

an exploited planet.

Heal our heart,

that we may respect our resources,

hold priceless our people,

and provide for our starving children

an abundance of daily bread.

~Joan Metzner

(1936-2005, Maryknoll Sister,

Poet and Author)


As It Is

March 17, 2018

The primary cause of unhappiness

is never the situation

but your thoughts about it.

Be aware of the thoughts

you are thinking.

Separate them from the situation,

which is always neutral,

which always is as it is.

~Eckhart Tolle

(1948 to pres., German Philosopher and Mystic)

The Way is beyond language.

For in it there is

No yesterday,

No tomorrow

No today.


(529-606, Third Chinese Zen Patriarch)

First Teacher

March 15, 2018

Every human being

is a universe,

and every mother

is a teacher to this universe.

She is the one

who holds the key

to a just or corrupt society,

as she is the first teacher

of any leader.

~Nahid Angha

(Psychologist, author,

and human rights activist,

director and founder

of the International Sufi Women’s Organization)

Be Content

March 14, 2018

Be content with the moment,

and be willing to follow the flow.

Then there will be no room

for grief or joy.

This is freedom.

The wood is consumed,

but the fire burns on,

and we do not know when

it will come to an end.


(trad. 370-301 BCE, Chinese Philosopher)
