Love is All

“Love all God’s creation,both the whole and every grain of sand.Love every leaf, every ray of light.Love the animals,love the plants,love each separate thing.If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all;and when once thou perceive this,thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it:until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”-Fyodor Dostoevsky


Spirit and Soul

“I call the light and high aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.Soul is at home in the deep,shaded valleys.Heavy torpid flowers saturated with black grow there.The rivers flow like warm syrup.They empty into huge oceans of soul.Spirit is a land of high white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers.Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances. There is soul music,soul food, and soul love… People need to climb the mountain not simple because it is there But because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the spirit.”-Dalai Lama

Beauty of Nature

“If children have an interest in nature, they will understand.I want them to become people who appreciate the consequences the next generation will suffer if we destroy our natural surroundings.So without a doubt,they need to learn that nature is vital to us by experiencing it.I want them to like nature and to climb mountains and so on.”- Tamae Watanabe

Love in Life

“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.” “Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving”-Khalil Gibran
