Sunday Dinner: Abiding Light



“Winter teetered on the verge of succumbing

to the returning sun,

but today the breeze still preferred

the touch of snowflakes”






“The breath of life is in the sunlight

and the hand of life is in the wind.”


Kahlil Gibran




“An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.”






“Moonlight is sculpture;

sunlight is painting.”


Nathaniel Hawthorne




“The world is larger and more beautiful

than my little struggle.”


Ravi Zacharias




“Who would then deny

that when I am sipping tea in my tearoom

I am swallowing the whole universe with it

and that this very moment

of my lifting the bowl to my lips

is eternity itself transcending time and space?”


D.T. Suzuk

“Might we begin then to transform

our passing illuminations into abiding light?”


Huston Smith
