Pay It (Forward)

In response to the Inspiration Exchange of yesterday, here are some of the bits and pieces of inspiration I received from the cosmic network of friends of friends:

A Great Need – Hafiz

of a great need
We are holding hands
And climbing.
Not loving is letting go.
The terrain around here
Far too
This Sky – Hafiz

Where we live
Is no place to lose your wings
So love, love,
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us “the universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate form the rest — a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening the circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” -Albert Einstein
—————————————————————————————————————————To a Painter – Lu Xun, 1933

The wind from the capital darkens the forest;
Under dark skies the flowers all die.
Could you devise a new kind of art,
And use red ink to paint spring mountains?
A smile shining on your face will radiate happiness to your heart and joy unto the world.
You’ve Got A Friend – Carole King and James Taylor
“When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.” -Jacques Cousteau

Big up to all for sharing.
