Poems Summer 2006                                             

What we call fate does not come to us from outside: it goes forth from within us.
Rainer Maria Rilke


Nothing is worth more than this day.
Goethe


The uncontrolled mind cannot even
Guess at the existence of the Atman.
How then can it meditate?
Without meditation, where is peace?
Without peace, where is happiness?
Bhagavad Gita 2.66


Happiness is a good health and a bad memory.
Ernest Hemingway


How beautiful to do nothing
And then rest afterwards.
Spanish saying


When you stand outside my thatched hut,
Could you guess how spacious it is inside?
There is a galaxy of worlds in here,
And space for as much love as I can find.
Ishikawa Jozan


You are here to enable the world to live more simply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget your errand.
Woodrow Wilson


Who has not found the heaven below
Will fail of it above.
Godís residence is next to mine,
His furniture is love.
Emily Dickinson


There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One is roots, the other wings.
Hodding Carter


Let me see God in the earth I plough, the water I drink, and the food I eat. Let me see the presence of God in the faces of my family, neighbours, and even in my own reflection as well.
From The King and the Peasant


To be able to listen to the silence is to be able to hear the infinite
Anne Wilson Schael
