Your Trail of Inspiration

'Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.' Easily written, easily said. More challenging to carry out. Whenever stopped by fear of the unknown or thwarted by the ease of the familiar remember; becoming one's own 'never before seen Destiny' is an extraordinary act of organic inspiration not only for yourself, but for all those around you. Live in the truth of who you are and the road will follow...

Quiet Inspiration

“I learned... that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.”

Fierce Peace

"Everyday we do things, we are things that have to do with peace. If we are aware of our life..., our way of looking at things, we will know how to make peace right in the moment, we are alive." Know then that Peace is a fierce struggle, which can only be waged with peaceful action.
