There is a moon inside every human being. Learn to be companions with it.
The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.
~ Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
The Moments You Have Lived
As essence turns to ocean,
the particles glisten.
Watch how in this candleflame instant
blaze all the moments you have lived.
Clouds draw the water up to become rain;
the ocean takes the river back into itself.
What this means is
we often need to be refreshed.
The core of the seen and unseen universe smiles, but remember smiles come best from those who weep. Lightning, then the rain-laughter.
Travel brings power and love back into your life.
The garden of love is green without limit
and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy.
Love is beyond either condition;
without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh.
People say that what we are all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. . .
