May all beings be peaceful.
May all beings be happy.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings be free of suffering.
May all beings be liberated.
May all beings realize their essence and live this fully, completely and utterly!

A New Earth ~ Favorite from Chapter 4 & from Hafiz

"Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as a field of conscious Presence." (p. 109)

This favorite Eckhart quote from Chapter 4 and this favorite Hafiz quote are one and the same...

~ Dropping Keys ~

The small man

builds cages for everyone he knows

while the sage,

who has to duck his head

when the moon is low,

keeps dropping keys

all night long

for the beautiful



~ Hafiz

Happy Easter!
