It may be important to great thinkers to examine the world, to explain and despise it. but i think it is only important to love the world, not to despise it, not for us to hate each other, but to be able to regard the world and ourselves and all beings with love, admiration and respect.
― hermann hesse, siddhartha
inspiration for sagittarius season, as we prepare for the winter solstice next week. the energies are turning from our own personal journeys toward the collective.
how can we step back and examine the bigger picture, understanding that nothing outside of us is separate from our own hearts? how can we love ourselves, each other, and the world with such care and joy that our fearful clinging and stingy addictions vanish in the light of this enormous love?
