To travel with the unawakened makes the
journey long and hard
and is as painful as traveling with an enemy. But the company of
the wise is as pleasant as meeting with friends.
Follow the wise, the intelligent, and
the awakened. Follow them
as the moon follows the path of the stars.
"Nurturing the Now" is
Vicki Woodyard's account of her spiritual
journey. Speaking without a script, she lets the listener in on her
challenging life. Losing both young daughter and husband to fatal
cancers, she determines to find her passion and live life more fully.
"How beautiful it is when the heart speaks." --Pamela Wilson
More selections by Mazie Lane and Bob O'Hearn follow....
Is a wellspring
The more you draw
There is more then enough
To fill everybody's
Without drawing often
From this well water of life -
Left idle and abandoned
And dries out...
Leaving only parched corpses
Of vain hopes and fears
On the surrounding sands
Of "me" and "mine"
Pouring it out to all without distinction
Keeps the spring gushing
And it's endless supply
Washes all sorrows and pains
is in any way beautiful has its source
of beauty in itself, and is complete in itself;
praise forms no part of it."
~ Marcus Aurelius
At dawn I asked the lotus,
'What is the meaning of life?'
Slowly she opened her hand
with nothing in it.
~ Debra Woolard Bender, Paper Lanterns
cannot believe that the inscrutable universe
turns on an axis of suffering;
surely the strange beauty of the world
must somewhere rest
on pure joy!"
~ Louise Bogan
