Some people just have not had their boots on long enough.

Privacy is the ultimate illusion.   Most people think no one knows their thoughts, except God,  but only when they’re praying.

Maybe prayers are only answered depending on the conversations one has in one’s head.

Perhaps the heavens slip in a thought depending on the intensity of the conversation.  Revelation!

Does the intensity of the Pilgrim inform the heavens that ‘yeah,  we have a live one down here!’

And we know people who are surprised when they mouth something because they say ‘I can’t believe I said that!’

The heavens put money on the horse they think will win the trifecta.   Is it you?

Work as though your life depended on it and love as if everyone’s life depended on you.

First step is to be the person you want to meet or you want in your life.

It is time for the world to note that when heaven does not speak to the individual, it is time to ask ‘why not?’

The purpose of life is to lift my brother up and then to ask how high.  Research yourself and you will then know how high and for what reason.

Should your child call and wonder if he should drop Philosophy, tell him it is the only class worth taking.   Except History.   And the Humanities.  And maybe a few others such as the Religions Of Man.



Paradigms with Love Attached

With love, compassion becomes an easy companion.

Courage does not come in large containers.  It is not bought by the jug, but can only
fill the cup drop by drop.

Love ventures into areas where courage falters but the heart makes waves.

The highest framework we can choose is one by which the heart is healed.

We aim to educate the heart.

Eyes that once are opened will always see and ears that once are opened will always hear.

Yield always to the heart.  It strongly upholds when argument does not.

Those whom we trust, reach out and touch the fear in us and lay Grace to it.

To see through the eyes of an Other will put one’s heart into divine orbit.

You wrapped me around your heart and now you will have to wear me like a pacemaker.

We are the cabbage and the rose at once.  Earthy and ethereal, at once.

The Spirit needs a daffodil once in awhile.

We choose not the dream or the believer but the One who sparks the dream.


More Nuggets

The hand laying featherlight makes the deepest impression.

Prejudices are sweet comfort food.

Where you are not is where the grass is greener.

Ambition takes on the sharpness of a double edged sword.

Words spoken at the wrong time or words not spoken
at the right time will maim as surely as an arrow straight
from the bow or a bullet from the gun.

Not all things can be anticipated.   Some things still
are sparklers.

To die with dignity and a measure of maturity is the
thinker’s final attempt.

To have a truth striking one’s core is to be on the way
but not the only way.

All addresses are forwarding addresses.

All centuries have their share of ducks.

A thought is a silent voice.

Ask and you shall receive.   Do and you will be shown how.

You can be sure that what you are reading is not what I am saying.



Your heart will teach in ways the world cannot.


What is not finished here will be finished elsewhere.
This is called the long view.   It is a choice.


When everything becomes a moral decision it
means that issues have been dragged through
the heart.


To suffer means to be aware of the damage
you do to the ones you care about.


Look always to where the sun rises and sets.  It
is but half a world.


Dimensions are but changes in perspective.  As
one world fades, another emerges where we have
earned the right to be.


As long as the eye beholds and another heart beats
to receive, there will be reason to keep breathing and
not give up.


The unfed Spirit is just as hungry as the unfed body.


Remember that when love does not accompany
the gift, there is no gift.


Uneventful is a merciful condition and that in itself
is a large blessing.

Family Drama

We should give children roots to know they are connected to us but we must
remember to uncover their wings so they can fly.   Then they will come back.

The straight spine is an inheritance.  It is agile enough to bend but its natural
position is perpendicular. . . . to hold the chin up

When as adults we realize that we no longer have the chance to save the world,
there are the children.

The children will do what we did not or could not.   It is with great relief that the
torch is passed.

As we get older, our world becomes smaller but infinitely richer.

The one who chooses to come with an open head is the miracle among men.
Are all babies born this way and we masterfully close them up?

Each of us have soft spots in need of gentle handling.

Friends feed the Spirit and good families are icing on the cake.

We should be building lives for ourselves, not lifestyles.

In a partnership there must be a compromise . . . of wishes but
not of self.

If humour was a monetary form of exchange, too many of us must
of needs file for bankruptcy.


If you do not intend to look back,
it’s best to remember to lift the plow.

Wishes are as potent a force
as fishes swimming in live water.

Under adverse conditions,  we become
more of what we are.

To think is a holy obligation.

Nothing gets done in this world unless a somebody’s
back breaks, a somebody’s legs ache and at least a
somebody’s mind  splinters and a heart rips apart.

The world no longer tolerates the thinkers.  They have
become recluses in ribbons of concrete.

The thoughtful ones cannot find a place to be asked a question
requiring the time to raise their eyes unto the hills and back for
a reflective answer. 

The visionary has the look of one used to focusing on
the horizon.   I would place my life in the hands of a visionary.
He /she will be around for the long haul as a participant in the vision.


        Negotiating earth oceans is not the same as navigating
        universal seas.

        Nature is such that never is a dream dreamed without
        the dreamer being given the ability to make it manifest.

        Dream  your dreams for if you do not dream them
        they will go begging.

        The highest framework we can choose is one by
         which the heart is healed.

        Find the bread for the day and you will 
        be able to provide the butter.

        In the beginning we were before we are.

        Slowly we shake their cocoons 
        and the butter- flies.
