Biddings For A Loved One

"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.  May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets towers into a dark primeval forest  where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you--- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls." - Edward Abbey

Circumstances Within My Control

 "Never touch anything with half of your heart, be present, endlessly loving and compassionate towards others, confront any challenging situation first with a deep breath, wander, remember that your own happiness and comfort comes above all things, before reacting-- understand, eat breakfast every morning, find the faces in the flowers, remember what is important to you, treat your body kindly, be honest, get to know yourself, take things at your own pace, don't feel embarassed to feel, laugh,cry, sing or love, remember that what's right for someone else may not be what is right for you (and that's okay), never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help, do what you love, remember that you always have a choice, find joy in what life really is---living."
