MysticBliss: From India, Spain, and Germany

A busy bee in our backyard.

Listening to: I knew this little Erie boy could sing but NOT LIKE THIS. Why is he singing pop crap (oh, right, money) when he has these freaking pipes? (After hearing him sing like this, I will gladly brag that, when he is in town, he shops at OUR whole foods cooperative.)

Today's Bliss: Last night, we celebrated a friend's 55th birthday. A birthday we are all so extra grateful for, because it was also kinda his 5th birthday of sorts.

From the Upanishads:

That is perfect -- this is perfect.
What comes from such perfection
truly is perfect.
What remains from perfection
is yet perfect.
May there be peace,
peace, and perfect peace.

From St. Teresa of Avila:

Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing frighten you.
All things pass away.
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
She who has God
lacks for nothing.
God alone suffices.

From Goethe:

Knowing is not enough;
we must apply.
Willing is not enough;
we must do...
