Thank you for this beautiful world

Got this from Eckhart Tolle's comment on FB.



Quote:
Dear Friends,
A timeless newspaper headline? Yes, here it is. It appeared on the front page of the Jan. 1, 2000 edition of the National Post (Canada) and I have kept it ever since. It is also my Christmas and New Year message to you. Appreciate the present moment. Marvel at the miracle of life as it continuously unfolds around you - from raindrops on the windowpane to the wagging tail of a dog or the feeling of aliveness inside your body. Relish the sense of I am, the light of consciousness that is the essence of who you are.
Be well, be at peace.
With love, Eckhart.

Re: Thank you for this beautiful world

Read this wonderful poem, "The Journey" by Mary Oliver.



The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice--
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.
But you didn't stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do--
determined to save
the only life you could save.

------

There is detailed commentary by Roger Housden in his book "Ten Poems to Change your life". It is very enlightening.
