Poetry is a life-cherishing force.

For poems are not words, after all,

but fires for the cold,

ropes let down to the lost,

something as necessary as bread

in the pockets of the hungry.

 

Mary Oliver, A Poetry Handbook

 

 

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.

If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

 

"Imagination is more important than knowledge.

For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand,

while imagination embraces the entire world,

and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

 

Albert Einstein

 

 

Epiphanies are occasions of benediction

when meaning floods as a blessing into our lives

and we have a profound experience of recognition, pattern, numiniousness,

a deeply felt intuition of the rightness of a particular situation,

and of a world that suddenly makes sense.

 

David Peat

The first thing you discover is

a kind of emptiness,

a silence,

a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,

like looking up at a limitless sky. 



 

That boundary-less place

inside you

is your own consciousness,

your awareness. 



 

When you relax into it,

you realize that it's also full -

it is everything. 



 

You realize this presence is

what you really are: Love.


 

Arjuna Ardagh

 

 

 

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding
