I keep coming across wonderful poems which open my eyes to the beauty in the world, remind me of lessons I have long forgotten, make me smell the flowers and open my heart with gratitude.

So I thought we could start a collection here:

Always we hope by Lao Tze

Always we hope
Someone else has the answer
Some other place will be better,
Some other time it will all turn out.


This is it.


No one else has the answer
No other place will be better,
And it has already turned out.
At the center of your being
You have the answer,
You know who you are
And you know what you want.
There is no need
To run outside
For better seeing.
Nor to peer from a window.
Rather abide at the center of your being;
For the more you leave it, the less you learn.


Search your heart
And see
The way to do
Is to be.

What a wonderful idea!

I just read this the other day and it really hit home, so I am sharing it here with you! 🙂

People aren't homes

Child,

why did no one

ever teach you

that you cannot

turn people

into homes?

People are rivers,

ever changing,

ever flowing.

They will disappear with

everything you put

inside them.

Still, 

your home does 

have a heartbeat.

But it isn't one

locked in

anyone else's 

chest.

Just

look inside

your own.
