At the end of the day …. “The Secret of Life”!!


~~September 14, 2014~~

“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

~~Alan Wilson Watts~~

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be.

~~Neale Donald Walsch~~

“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”

~~Paulo Coelho, Alchemist~~

The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of like is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.

We ALL are ONE!!


To start the day …. Oneness of the human soul!!

~~May 30, 2014~~ 

“You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.”
~~Alan Wilson Watts~~

“All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.” 
~~Swami Vivekananda~~

“Consider your own place in the universal oneness of which we are all a part, from which we all arise, and to which we all return.”
~~David Fontana~~

“One in All
All in One–
If only this is realized,
No more worry about your not being perfect”
~~Edward ConzeBuddhist Scriptures~~

“You is.
Within Me!
We are ONE.” 
~~Arnaud Saint-PaulThe Human Project~~

“Every loving word and action create a far reaching ripple effect – like the waves of the ocean.”
~~Swami Dhyan Giten~~

“Say I Am You

I am dust particles in sunlight.
I am the round sun.

To the bits of dust I say, Stay.
To the sun, Keep moving.

I am morning mist, and the breathing of evening.

I am wind in the top of a grove, and surf on the cliff.

Mast, rudder, helmsman, and keel,
I am also the coral reef they founder on.

I am a tree with a trained parrot in its branches.
Silence, thought, and voice.

The musical air coming through a flute,
a spark of a stone, a flickering in metal.

Both candle and the moth crazy around it.

Rose, and the nightingale lost in the fragrance.

I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence, the lift,

and the falling away. What is, and what isn’t.

You who know Jelaluddin, You the one in all,

say who I am. Say I am You.”

~~Rumi: Say I Am You~~

~(Sufi poem)~

~Uploaded on Apr 14, 2007~

Rumi’s poems elegantly and consistently touch our inner being and inspire us to go beyond our limitations towards the Divine.

~~The music~~

The credits do appear at the end of this video, but it is by the composer, Eleni Karaindrou, and is the theme music called “Eternity and a Day” from the movie, Aggelopoulos.

A note on the music: This entire video was constructed in silence – only the poem and the images were put together without my knowing what music would be the right one. The music is so important to the interpretation of these poems. Rather than reading them, the music is my voice. When I ‘laid’ this beautiful piece of music over the video it fit perfectly. Few edits were made to accommodate the images to fit the music. They seem to be made for each other.


We ALL are ONE!!
