Soulful Sunday

May flowers always line your path 
`and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you 
`every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you 
`in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart
`each day your whole life through.~~Irish Blessing

My friend Dani took this photograph of this bird
in her parents tree.

I love birds and trees 

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us that there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to obtain. ~ Doug Coupland

There is a deep and humbling lesson in the way of birds.Their wings grow and stretch and span patches of air. First tentatively and then with confidence, they lift, they ump, they glide, they land. It seems, for birds, it is the act of flying that is goal. True, they migrate and seek out food, but when flying, there is the sense that being aloft is their true destination.
Unlike birds, we confuse our time on Earth, again and again, with obsessions of where we are going - often to the point that we frustrate and stall our human ability to fly. We frequently tame and hush our need to love, to learn, to know the truth of spirit, until we can be assured that our efforts will take us somewhere. All these conditions and hesitations and yes-buts and what ifs turn the human journey upside down, never letting the heart, wing that it is, truly unfold.
We, like the birds, are meant to fly and sing - that’s all - and all our plans and schemes are twigs of nest that, once out-grown, we leave.
~ Mark Nepo

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
~Victor Hugo

“There is beauty laced within this day… be courageous enough to find it, be kind enough to share it, and at the end of the day, be wise enough to let it go.”
― Steve Maraboli

in your whole life was, "thank you," 
that would suffice."

"The happiest people I know
are people who don't even think about being happy.
They just think about being
good neighbours,
good people.
And then happiness
sort of sneaks
in the back window while they are
busy doing good."

~Rabbi Harold Kushner
