Coming Home to myself


The Self
pushes the neglected forward
for recognition.
Do not disregard it.
it holds energy
of highest value.
it is the gold in the dung.
do not disregard the dung.

The Poet

James Kirkup

Each instant of his life, a task, he never rests,
And works most when he appears to be doing nothing.
The least of it is putting down in words
What usually remains unwritten and unspoken,
And would so often be much better left
Unsaid, for it is really the unspeakable
That he must try to give an ordinary tongue to.

And if, by art and accident,
He utters the unutterable, then
It must appear as natural as a breath,
Yet be an inspiration. And he must go,
The lonlier for his unwanted miracle
His singular way, a gentle lunatic at large
In the societies of cross and reasonable men.

Words of Peace

Prem Rawat, also known as Maharaji, offers a way to go within and experience peace as it already exists in each human being.

Right under our noses, right under our breath, is a well of peace and serenity, a peace that he describes as being 'the perfume of God'.

see for news and updates on upcoming events around the world, and closer to home for us North Americans.

have a wonderful, sunny summer day (for those of you in my area, where the sun has persisted inspite of rain clouds this morning).

What to Pray For

"People pray to God for things they want: a son, or money, or a job. People want God’s blessings to fulfil their desires’, he says. ‘Yet God has already blessed you. His hand is on your head, for the greatest blessing is the coming and going of this breath, which keeps you alive so effortlessly’."
