What I Have Learned So
Meditation is old and
honorable, so why should I
not sit, every morning of my life, on the
looking into the shining world? Because, properly
to, delight, as well as havoc, is suggestion.
Can one be passionate about the
ideal, the sublime, and the holy, and yet commit
to no labor in
its cause? I don't think so.
All summations have a
beginning, all effect has a
story, all kindness begins with the sown
Thought buds toward radiance. The gospel of
light is the
crossroads of -- indolence, or action.
Be ignited, or be
