As I Sat by the Lake


As I sat by the lake today, a prism of light reflecting

I wondered how water could hold

so much calm within us, for us,

filling our very core

giving us a sense

of wholeness.

And somehow the water….

becomes part of us.

Within the Waves


What is it we search for within the waves?

Is it simply the rhythm

of the earth washing our spirits,

or maybe a reflection

pulling from our memories within?

Mostly I think, we become……

at peace with ourselves.

The Power of Reading


A Quote from the book, “The Way of Serenity”:

“Reading forces us to think, to grapple with ideas and concepts, and inevitably to examine our lives and choices. It challenges our minds and souls. To be spiritual means, in the first place, to recognize and pursue an interior dimension to being human. It means taking a step back to consider and reflect – on the present, the past, and the future.”

So what great book are you going to read today? And what great mysteries will you discover?
