More pondering

I got some more quotes from my Mastery Foundation quote box for you to 'be with'.

That's what pondering is about--just being present to something in a quiet, absorbing way.

Here goes:

"The soul of one who loves God always swims in joy, always keeps holiday, and is always in the mood for living."    --St. John of the Cross

"Everyday people are straying away from the church and going back to God."
                       --Lenny Bruce

"Between living and dreaming there is a third thing. Guess what it is."
                       --Antonio Machado

"We never become spiritual by sitting down and wishing to become so. You must undertake something so great that you cannot accomplish it unaided."
                        --Phillps Brooks

"May he Blessing of Light be on you
Light without and Light within
May the blessed sunlight shone upon you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire,
so that the stranger may come
and warm himself at it.
And may the Light shine out of the eyes of you
like a candle set in a window of a house
bidding the wanderer come in out of the storm."
                        --And old Irish blessing

Go deep. Go deep.
