Whispers in the wind

“None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes (1803-1882)


The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

From Essential Rumi

  1. I'll try to remember this….although I think we can ask all we want…it still doesn't make it so…even if we are totally awake….conscious…. X = X….it is what it is. Seems the Akashic records are already written….and all we really can ask for is to be better able at handling CHANGE. Hope your day is filled with sunshine and smiles.

  2. Keep awake! I love the message this conveys… And don't you think that "You must ask for what you really want" is one of the bravest, best things we can do?! :o) Happy Day, Anyes ((HUGS))
