"We're each of us
alone, to be sure.
What can you do
but hold your hand
out in the dark.'
Ursula LeGuin

 "When your heart speaks 
take good notes."
           Judith Campbell 

"When you go out into the woods
and you look at trees, you see
all these different trees. And some
of them are bent, and some of them
are straight, and some of them
are evergreens, and some of them
are whatever. And you look at
the tree and you allow it.

You appreciate it.

You see why it is the way it is.

You sort of understand that it
didn’t get enough light, and so
it turned that way. And you don’t
get all emotional about it.
You just allow it.
You appreciate the tree. -

- The minute you get near humans,
you lose all that. And you are
constantly saying “You’re too this,
or I’m too this.” That judging mind
comes in. And so
I practice turning
people into trees.
Which means
appreciating them
just the way
they are."
Ram Das
