Good morning all you beautiful souls.  I hope you had a chance to read ‘I have saved all your kindnesses’ and my follow up with ‘The Box’ yesterday.  If all there ever really is – is Light & Love, then what is left when all is said and done but every loving kindness you’ve ever given, every loving thought you’ve ever had.  No one is saving the rest, no one is taking score, except occasionally ourselves.  When I imagined opening a box that contained every loving kindness I’ve ever given and every loving thought I’d ever had, I was overwhelmed by it and felt such huge grace that nothing else was left but Love, that I literally wept a mixture of joy and relief.

So my lovelies, I leave you on this bright autumn Pacific coast morning with a little Rumi, he is ‘essential’ after all :).  With light and love, Beth

sing those words.

What will our children do in the morning
if they do not see us
