"We are all inventors,
each sailing out on a voyage
of discovery,
guided each by a private chart,
of which there is no duplicate.
The world is all gates,
all opportunities."

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Every day, think as you wake
up, today I am fortunate to be
alive, I have a precious human
life, I am not going to waste it. I
am going to use all my energies
to develop myself, to expand my
heart out to others; to achieve
enlightenment for the benefit of
all beings. I am going to have
kind thoughts towards others, I
am not going to get angry or
think badly about others. I am
going to benefit others as much
as I can.”

~ Dalai Lama ~

“The mind is like a parachute, works better when it is open” ~ Tsogni Rinpoche ~ 


In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.


dedicated to Jasmine...

I have found that the
greatest degree of inner
tranquility comes from
the development of love
and compassion. The more we
care for the happiness of others,
the greater is our own sense of
well-being. Cultivating a close,
warmhearted feeling for others
automatically puts the mind at
ease. It is the ultimate source of
success in life.

~ Dalai Lama ~

R.I.P Jasmine 

I am truly grateful for having you in my life for 20+yrs. 
You have added so much Joy & Love

Words are meaningless...without feelings!
heartache, pain and intense sadness, is what I feel for my loss

Until we meet again ...

On a day when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open and
the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day - RUMI
