"When there is beauty witnin you"
From "The Breath of God"

When you understand that the great source of satisfaction exists within you, just as you are, then you don't need to bother with anything else. Very simply, when there is beauty within you – when there is love within you – then love grows up everywhere in your life. When there is giving in you, then giving grows up everywhere in your life. Then there is no need to manipulate or change anything, because there is already something utterly amazing in you as you are.

My readings from last night.
From Siddartha by Hermann Hesse

"Truly, nothing in the world has occupied my thoughts as much as the Self, this riddle, that I live, that I am one and am separated and different from everybody else, that I am Siddartha;"
"and Govinda saw that his mask-like smiled, this smile or unity over the flowing forms, this smile of simultaneousness over the thousands of births and deaths - this smile of Siddartha- was exactly the same as the calm, delicate, impenetrable, perhaps gracious, wise, thousand-fold smile of Gotama, the Buddha, as he perceived it with awe a hundred times. It was in such a manner, Govinda knew, that the Perfect One smiled."

Tribute to My Step-Dad David M. Staples


David M. Stapels passed away yesterday morning 2-19-10. He suffered from Parkinson's Disease and is at peace now. A wonderful man. Supportive, happy, loving, and kind. You couldn't ask for a better dad than David. He loved sailing, photography and my mother. They owned three different sail boats over the years and enjoyed every minute on the water, as did I. This photo shows their joy when sailing.
David you will be missed dearly.
