Extraordinarily Orange - Time, Love and Inspiration

"Anything that follows the laws of nature is worth your consideration." ~Cicero

"No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending." Author unknown

"Against birth and death there are no cures, except to make full use of the time in between." ~Santanaya

Love one another.

Before an omen arises, it's easy to take preventive measures.
What is still soft is easily melted;
What is still small is easily scattered.
Deal with things in their formative state;
Put things in order before they grow confused.

[Tao Teh Ching]

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds;
Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
- Patanjali

"Be who we are, and become what we are capable of becoming; that's the goal of life." ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Brighter days!
"Let us learn the secret language of light again. Also the letters of the
dark. Learn the flight patterns of birds, the syllables of wolf howl and bird
song, the moving pantomime of branch and leaf, valleys and peaks of
whale calls, the long sentences of ants moving in unison, the
combinations and recombinations of clouds, the codices of stars. Let us,
thus, reconstitute the world, sign by sign and melody by melody.

"Let us sing the world back into the very Heart of the Holy Name of God."

—Deena Metzger, *Prayers for a Thousand Years,* edited by Elizabeth
Roberts and Elias Amidon
