One sticks one’s finger into the soil to tell by the smell in what land one is:
I stick my finger in existence — it smells of nothing.
Where am I?
Who am I?
How came I here?
What is this thing called the world?
What does this world mean?
Who is it that has lured me into the world?
Why was I not consulted,
why not made acquainted with its manners and customs instead of throwing me into the ranks, as if I had been bought by a kidnapper, a dealer in souls?
How did I obtain an interest in this big enterprise they call reality?
Why should I have an interest in it?
Is it not a voluntary concern?
And if I am to be compelled to take part in it,
where is the director?
I should like to make a remark to them.
Is there no director?
Whither shall I turn with my complaint?

You don’t measure love in time.
You measure love in transformation.
Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything.
The heart doesn’t wear a watch - it’s timeless.
It doesn’t care how long you know someone.
It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection.
What the heart cares about is resonance.
Resonance that opens it,
resonance that enlivens it,
resonance that calls it home.
And when it finds it,
the transformation begins…

We must become so alone,
so utterly alone,
that we withdraw into our innermost self.
It is a way of bitter suffering.
But then our solitude is overcome,
we are no longer alone,
for we find that our innermost self is the spirit,
that it is God,
the indivisible.
And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world,
yet undisturbed by its multiplicity,
for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.

The earth is all that lasts.
The earth is what I speak to when I do not understand my life, nor why I am not heard.
The earth answers me with the same song that it sang for my fathers when their tears covered up the sun.
The earth sings a song of gladness.
The earth sings a song of praise.
The earth rises up and laughs at me each time I forget how spring begins with winter,
and death begins with birth.

We do not remain the same each minute to the next.
Every word you hear, every sight you see, every smell, every thought you have, every moment, it all changes you.
We keep putting on mask after mask, layers over layers.
That’s how one grows.

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
