The Crossroads

"Love builds up the broken wall, and straightens the crooked path. Love keeps the stars in the firmament, and imposes rhythm on the ocean tides. Each of us is created of it, and I suspect each of us was created for it."
- Maya Angelou


Mother and baby, originally uploaded by Tambako the Jaguar. When you find your purpose, it is like your heart has been set alight with passion. You know it absolutely, without any doubt.

Physics of The Quest

Physics of The Quest, originally uploaded by colbyh. .I've come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call "The Physics of The Quest" - a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: "If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared - most of all - to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself....then truth will not be withheld from you." - Elizabeth Gilbert

The Wild Frontier

The people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history. - Ouida


Reflections, originally uploaded by EarthAsSeenByMatt. When Jesus looks upon my life,
What picture does He see?
Does He see His own reflection,
Or does He just see me?

Does He see His likeness,
The product of His hand.
Or just another Christian,
Who never took a stand.

Does He see a child of God,
A child that He set free.
Living life to honor Him,
Or does He just see me.

What about the other folks,
I meet along the way.
Do I show them Jesus,
To brighten up their day.

When someone looks into my eyes,
Can they truly see.
That calm and gentle peace of God,
That dwells inside of me.

When I reach out and shake a hand,
Is He right there in my grip.
Can they feel that strength from God,
That steadies when I slip.

When folks are in my presence,
Do they know His Spirit's there?
Can they see that He's the one,
Who guides me everywhere.

When other people think of me,
What is on their mind?
Do they think of Jesus Christ,
So gentle and so kind.

I try to be like Jesus,
Every single day.
Spreading love and kindness,
All along …

Ripple Effects

I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace.
I honor the place in you where, if you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.


Daily do's

Daily do's, originally uploaded by colbyh. "To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."
William Ellery Channing


Promises, originally uploaded by colbyh. Above the riots, a rainbow tonight. Sweet Heavens, rain down.

"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

Dawna Markova, Author of Open Mind.
