I decided not to post this weekend in a silent memorial to the suffering in Japan.

This quote  has special poignancy right now:

"There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for."

  2. These lines that you posted are really interesting... I link something, few lines, with another link and this speaks to us of the peaceful side of the sea...
    Of the Ocean that has two sides...
    Never underestimate the power of the Ocean...
