WPC: Awakening


“The world is exploding in emerald, sage,
and lusty chartreuse – neon green with so much yellow in it.
It is an explosive green that,
if one could watch it moment by moment throughout the day,
would grow in every dimension.”
Amy Seidl



“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression,
it must come completely undone.
The shell cracks, its insides come out
and everything changes.
To someone who doesn’t understand growth,
it would look like complete destruction.”
Cynthia Occelli



Meaning is only found
when you go beyond meaning.
Life only makes sense
when you perceive it as mystery
and it makes no sense
to the conceptualizing mind.”
Anthony de Mello



“Waking up from a deep sleep,
I always seem to be discovering life
for the first time.”
Marty Rubin



“A single event
can awaken within us
a stranger totally unknown to us.
To live is to be slowly born.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

not to tell you how to dream better.”
