Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Love is the Water of Life.
Silence is an ocean. Speech is a river.
Close both eyes to see with the other eye.

Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.
Let silence take you to the core of life.
I was you and never knew it.

“…Surround me with your loving arms…hold me in your heart. Let me know that I am loved and that I can love. Show me that no matter where I go that I come and go in You. I am never out of your loving presence. That you are the smile behind the smile, the touch behind the touch, the kiss behind the kiss…You are the constant presence I forget until I remember, and when I remember my Self, I remember You. I sing your Name. What else can I think of? You ARE Love. And I AM You. ”
