Inner Translucence, 2015

"Appreciate what you have. Taking time 

to contemplate what you’re grateful for 

isn’t merely the "right" thing to do. It also improves your mood, because it reduces 

the stress hormone cortisol by 23 percent. Research conducted at the University of California, Davis found that people who worked daily to cultivate an attitude of gratitude experienced improved mood, energy and physical well-being. It’s likely 

that lower levels of cortisol played a major role in this."

               —Dr. Travis Bradberry

"The past is history, 

the future is a mystery, 

and this moment is a gift. 

That is why this moment 

is called ‘the present’."

—Deepak Chopra

Chang Pu He Park, 2010

"Imagine yourself as a pebble which has been thrown into a river. The pebble sinks through the water effortlessly. Detached from everything, it falls by the shortest distance possible, finally reaching the bottom, the point of perfect rest. You are like a pebble which has let itself fall into the river, letting go of everything. At the center of your being is your breath."      

                    —Thich Nhat Hahn

               September morning—

       "If you don't transform your suffering, 

                     you will transmit it."

                        --Richard Rohr

Ascending Dawn, 2017

"As I walked out the door toward the gate 

that would lead to my freedom, I knew if 

I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred 

behind, I'd still be in prison."

—Nelson Mandela

Dawn Clouds, 2016

      If you have ever been wounded, but 

         never recovered from it, you will 

               forever be controlled by it.

Morning Dew, 2016

    "The children who need love the most   

        will always ask for it in the most 

                     unloving ways."
