The main reason for creating yourself and your
physical world is to learn to have fun. The other
essential purpose, mission, or task — or, as we
call it, focus — is as important and as illusive as
the first. The second focus: to learn to consciously
You see, it is not just about being successful, it is
about learning. It is about being conscious. It is
about defining exactly what success is for you.

W. H. Auden's
You owe it to us all to get on with what you're good at.Have a sweet nice weekend, folks :)
Touched by an angel We, unaccustomed to courageexiles from delightlive coiled in shells of lonelinessuntil love leaves its high holy templeand comes into our sightto liberate us into life.Love arrivesand in its train come ecstasiesold memories of pleasureancient histories of pain.Yet if we are bold,love strikes away the chains of fearfrom our souls.We are weaned from our timidityIn the flush of love's lightwe dare be braveAnd suddenly we seethat love costs all we areand will ever be.Yet it is only lovewhich sets us free.
The shape of things
Foi na Fonte que li este poema e pedi ao Marco para trazerpara cá. Digo-o também em inglês, em uma tradução livre.Pouco importa a forma de uma coisa
Se a coisa para mim é o bastante
A aparência não é forma de parâmetro
E belas são as coisas do instante
A vida é forma imprevisível
Que o Criador moldou num momento
A arte é saber que cada traço
Vai além de qualquer julgamento
Qual é a forma que você quer dar às coisas?
Whatever shape a thing has got doesn’t matter
When the thing on its own is what matters to me
Whatever something looks like is no guideline
And beauty can be found in sudden happenings
Living takes an unforeseeable shape
Which the Creator moulded at a moment
Art lies on knowing each trace
Goes beyond any judgmental act
What shape do you want to give to things?
Learning is finding out what you already know,
Doing is demonstrating that you know it,
Teaching is reminding others that they know it as well as you do.
We are all learners, doers, and teachers.
A song from the 1970s
Carpet of the sun
Come along with meDown into the world of seeingCome and you'll be freeTake the time to find the feelingSee everything on its ownAnd you'll find you know the wayAnd you'll know the things you're shownOwe everything to the daySee the carpet of the sunThe green grass soft and sweetSands upon the shores of timeOf oceans mountains deepPart of the world that you live inYou are the part that you're givingCome into the dayFeel the sunshine warmth around youSounds from far awayMusic of the love that found youThe seed that you plant todayTomorrow will be a treeAnd living goes on this wayIt's all part of you and me
See the carpet of the sun…
