Lightly Child, Lightly

Bring down your colors

Break open your box of song

Beauty lifts us up

~ Mirabai Starr, Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics

  • Post Title & Inspiration: Aldous Huxley: “It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.”

  5. It’s a choice we have, isn’t it? To choose to see, to choose to open up, to choose to share!

    In addition to Beauty…Love….I love these lines from an old Hymn:
    “Love lifted me.
    Love lifted me! Love lifted me!
    When nothing else could help
    Love lifted me.”

  7. I very consciously try to live every day like that: Colourful, fiercly, lovingly, putting in as much creativity and passion I can manage (and it’s not the same every day, I admit that)…. and share the good things with like-minded people.
    Seems to work just fine – and when it doesn’t, I try again, next day.
    Wonderful combo here, Dave! Thanks.
