Wednesday of Hope – We Are Never Hopeless

We need never be hopeless because we can never be irreparably broken.

– John Green, Looking for Alaska

Animals Are People Too! And, of course, Trees.

Animals are people, too. As are plants. And water. And soil. This is the fundamental insight at the heart of all eco-spiritual work. But to get that insight, we have to get with the big picture. To get that insight, we have to climb a tree.

– Clark Strand, Trees, Butterflies, and the Buddhist Moral Life

Wednesday of Hope – the Winds Will Carry You

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.
