Self, Pleasure, Divinity

A  L  O  H  A !
We all woke up this morning 
and we had with it the 
amazing return of our 
conscious mind. We recovered 
minds with a complete 
sense of self and a 
complete sense of 
our own existence — yet 
we hardly ever pause 
to consider this wonder.” 
                AntΓ³nio R. DamΓ‘sio

"Why not seize the 
pleasure at once?
How often is happiness 
destroyed by preparation, 
foolish preparation?"
                   Jane Austin

“Our humanity 
is an expression 
of divinity 
in action”

Overcome Easy

A  L  O  H  A !

"First thing we'd climb a tree. 
And maybe then we'd talk. 
Or sit silently. And 
listen to our thoughts. 
With illusions of someday, 
cast in a golden light. 
No dress rehearsal. 
This is our life."   
        Gord Downie  

"Never speak harsh words 
For they will rebound upon you.
 Angry words hurt 
And the hurt rebounds. 
Like a broken gong.   

"With gentleness 
overcome anger. 
With generosity 
overcome meanness. 
With truth 
overcome deceit."
