Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

There You Are Sweet Caroline - 10-22-2010

Is this the little one who reached out to me from the womb? Is this the little one who I have called to so many times over these past nine months? Well, it is! There you are Sweet Caroline. And good times never seemed so good!

May your life go well, Sweet Caroline
May you discover your gifts, Sweet Caroline
May you understand love before you give it, Sweet Caroline
May you receive love, genuine love, with open arms, Sweet Caroline
May you be blessed by all that is holy and sacred, Sweet Caroline
May your mind be full of wonder, amazement, not just as a child, but in all your days here on this earth, Sweet Caroline
May you forgive us as we fumble in our own imperfect ways to teach you about love, life and relationships, Sweet Caroline
May we be strong enough to let you be you and not something we have created in our own images, Sweet Caroline
May we not cling so tightly that we cripple your precious wings to fly into your own sky and be free, Sweet Caroline

Love and Happy Birthday (10-22-2010)
