Happy New Year you Beautiful Brilliant people !
from Tara Singh
I have to learn one other thing--something called reverence.
Without reverence we will not come to silence. This is very important. Reverence is neither Oriental nor Occidental, Christian or non-Christian. It doesn't fit into anything. Reverence is a quality. It is like a gentleness.
You know when you love someone how gentle you are?
Have you ever noticed that?
When you love someone you are gentle and you are kind. That gentleness brings about an atmosphere where each person then opens up to give.You are thoughtful and your touch speaks. The caring civilizes you. You create an atmosphere where something much deeper can be shared. Its something very beautiful. And different.
That is reverence for life, respect for one another, love for your own self. Because reverence is where you want to give. Without reverence you want to take.
I think children own this reverence.
So we've only tucked it away and can reach it--
Open hearted to the awe and wonder.
I want to be that, again, in 2010.

Will be in Boston and surroundings with family and friends for most of January.
The river water flows there too; and the ocean.
We lost my little brother over the Holiday.
(Wasn't sure i would post this ... was thinking, if i come back and read my blog when i am old, will i wish i had honored this... here?)
As children he and I were like twins, exploring and imagining everything.
All the thoughts theories even spiritual experiences in my Life that "know" and "understand" ... they barely reach where this heart in the body carries me now. I think Grief is a beast... like wrestling a power till weak and inarticulate. It wins... and I am humbled by this love that no longer fits in its clothes-- love that has broken the seams of the word love, the word brother.
Its a great blessing
to be awake and healthy on this beautiful planet; loved. Nourished.
And to believe in Spirit, to know i will be brought forward ... this will be my journey this year, transformation towards more "understanding."
Peace to all who enter here.
You have all made me feel the world is small and full of a realized Peace on Earth! Because of what you share and how you comment here; because of who you Are. I couldn't ask for a better gift. Thank you.
I may not be round and about for a bit but i Wish Joy to you in 2010 ...& love & long long hugs when you are sad.
