Good morning Sirah! I wanted to leave an inspiring message for you to start your day:
Salutation to the Dawn
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow only a vision
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
"All glory to this Supreme Creative Pulsation of Consciousness which is
the abode of flashing, unparalleled delight, whose majesty of path
extends to far regions, from the Earth up to Siva, which is variegated
by the display of various states of creation, maintenance, and
withdrawal; and of whose extension this universe is just a minute
particle." -Ksemaraja. 10th C.
LIFE, believe, is not a dream
So dark as sages say;
Oft a little morning rain
Foretells a pleasant day.
Sometimes there are clouds of gloom,
But these are transient all;
If the shower will make the roses bloom,
O why lament its fall ?
Life’s sunny hours flit by,
Enjoy them as they fly !
What though Death at times steps in
And calls our Best away ?
What though sorrow seems to win,
O’er hope, a heavy sway ?
Yet hope again elastic springs,
Unconquered, though she fell;
Still buoyant are her golden wings,
Still strong to bear us well.
The day of trial bear,
For gloriously, victoriously,
Can courage quell despair !
Hi Sirah... boy I am trying to hang in there.... so much going on these days... I'm sure that is true for everybody... let me know if you get to the SF area... it would be so great to catch up in person and see where we go from here...
Dear Sirah, thanks for your message
ok, so dont you think it is time to visit again? (you can skip Zimbabwe this time). Another beautiful country to visit down here is Namibia. (I have assisted approx. 30 Americans with their itineraries to SA in the last 5 years).
Cold in Santa Monica at the moment?
