A Blessing…

A Blessing

“For Equilibrium, a Blessing:

Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.

As the wind loves to call things to dance,
May your gravity by lightened by grace.

Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth,
May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect.

As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.

As silence smiles on the other side of what’s said,
May your sense of irony bring perspective.

As time remains free of all that it frames,
May your mind stay clear of all it names.

May your prayer of listening deepen enough
to hear in the depths the laughter of god.”  ―John O’Donohue  


He Who Does……

He Who Does…

“He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.”
―Elbert Hubbard

I am a firm believer in not responding to people when they’ve shown me what they truly are. It lowers me to their level, a place I do not belong. Some people believe that if you don’t respond, and you’re silent, that it means they’re right. Sometimes it does, it depends on the individual situation, but if I don’t respond, it probably means something else entirely. Something I’m way too polite to say at the moment.
