Because sometimes I get tired of hearing my own thoughts, words, and ramblings and I need to be inspired by someone else...

Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
You will not find me in stupas, not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals:
not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding around your
own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me, you will see me instantly-
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says this: Student, tell me, what is God?
He (or she) is the breath inside the breath.
by Kabir, translated by Robert Bly

I am a student- always growing, always searching, always learning to accept the mysteries and live the questions, always open to where God might show up next.
