"Ah, Love, But a Day"
~Robert Browning

Ah, Love, but a day,
And the world has changed!
The sun’s away,
And the bird estranged;
The wind has dropped,
And the sky’s deranged;
Summer has stopped.
Ah, Love, but a day,
And the world has changed!
Look in my eyes!
Wilt thou change too?
Should I fear surprise?
Shall I find aught new
In the old and dear,
In the good and true,
With the changing year?
Ah, Love, look in my eyes,
Wilt thou change too?
"The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry.”

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~Aristotle
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are.

Fear not that life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning.
