Something To Think About

“Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute
What you can do, or dream you can; begin it;
Boldness has genius, power magic in it.
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated;
Begin and then the work will be completed.”  Goethe.

What is your dream? Is it bold enough to honor the creative spirit and genius alive within you? What can you do to boldy step forward in your quest?

Today’s Quote by Ray Bradbury

Today’s Quote by Ray Bradbury on Writing

“We never sit anything out. We are cups, quietly and constantly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.”
― Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

Drunk on the Wine of the Beloved ~ Poem by Hafiz

Drunk on the Wine of the Beloved
A Poem by Hafiz

The beauty of this poem is beyond words.
Do you need a guide to experience the heat of the sun?

Blessed is the brush of the painter who paints
Such beautiful pictures for his virgin bride.

Look at this beauty. There is no reason for what you see.
Experience its grace. Even in nature there is nothing so fine.

Either this poem is a miracle, or some sort of magic trick.
Guided either by Gabriel or the Invisible Voice, inside.

No one, not even Hafiz, can describe with words the Great Mystery.
No one knows in which shell the priceless pearl does hide.

Today’s Quote

This, I thought, is how great visionaries and poets see everything- as if for the first time. Each morning they see a new world before their eyes; they do not really see it, they create it. ~ Nikos Kazantzakis
