An Oasis in 5 Minutes

29 Sep

Sometimes we just need a little break from reality to get our footing again. I invite you to take that break right now. Soak up some peace from these wise poets and let your eyes relax with some gorgeous scenery. You deserve it!

“The world is quiet here.”

― Lemony Snicket

Peace is Every Step

By Thich Nhat Hanh

Peace is every step.

The shining red sun is my heart.

Each flower smiles with me.

How green, how fresh all that grows.

How cool the wind blows.

Peace is every step.

It turns the endless path to joy.

May you be at peace.
May your heart remain open.
May you awaken to the light of your own true nature.
May you be healed.
May you be a source of healing to all beings.
—THE METTA OF THE BUDDHA

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chillest land,

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked a crumb of me.

-Emily Dickinson

 

 

Allow Yourself

by Catherine Pulsifer

Allow yourself to dream,

And when you do dream big

Allow yourself to learn

And when you do learn all you can

Allow yourself to laugh

And when you do share your laughter

Allow yourself to set goals

And when you do reward yourself as you move forward

Allow yourself to be determined

And when you do you will find you will succeed

Allow yourself to believe in yourself

And when you do you will find self confidence

Allow yourself to lend a helping hand

And when you do a hand will help you.

Allow yourself relaxation

And when you do you will find new ideas.

Allow yourself love

And when you do you will find love in return

Allow yourself to be happy

And when you do you will influence others around you.

Allow yourself to be positive

And when you do life will get easier.
