When I Was a River


When I was a river I didn’t mind the rapids, the turbulence

carrying me further, around the rocks

up and over,

beyond, what was possible,

I was always moving.

And now that I’m a lake

I go deeper,

and deeper still

into the peace,

in the depths

of the spirit.

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?
