om shanti shanti shanti

for some experiences there are no words. at one time i thought this was my own inability to articulate, but now i know it is because those experiences be the most divine, the most transcendental, the most blissful. they are beyond the symbology of language and cut across that barrier which often divides us.

in honour~i will expand on moments of emptiness and fill them with love so that they may grow. i will share my wealth with others especially if it is joy, and know that i can only burn brighter by sharing that which makes me shine.
i am thankful for today's hot pink setting sun, and for this toothy canvas of a planet upon which natural and breathtaking beauty manifests itself every day. may we see this beauty as a reflection of our own and regard ourselves and others as beautiful for what we are.
after everything i have learned thus far, i can only say with absolute certainty that my greatest purpose in this life is to love, and to spread and share what i have found with everyone and everything that i can. i may not see my beliefs and ideals reflected around me but i will give them life through my own actions. in the words of mr. robbins, "if you want to change the world, you must change yourself." or in the words of mr. gandhi "you must be the change you wish to see in the world".
may you look within and find your own peace, and know your own heart to be your compass.
