Currie's Gratitude 30 May 2013

And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky. 

So too much of love, in me anyway, has been about rules. About having to and supposed to DO. It is no wonder, I realise, that this is what a Life of loving like that looks like. I am more about lighting up, mayBE NOT the whole sky, but someone’s face. So mayBE it is time I BEgin to love like the Sun.

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control.  [Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love]

BEing a bit of a controlling sort, I am slowly waking up to BEing out of control. To BEing following the bouncing ball in a bouncy sort of spirit instead of with creases of concern twisting my face into a grimace.

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.  [Maya Angelou]

Oh my, that is something!!!

I love you, Currie

So sad--I just heard that Maya Angelou died. What a wonderful lady. And, just think, we knew her by her thoughts. :)
