Quotes, poems, books Kathleen mentions during Guided Meditation.

“There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.” ~Anthony De Mello

“What would a wise person do?”

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately…” ~Henry David Thoreau

Swimming, One Day in August

Mary Oliver


It is time now, I said,

for the deepening and quieting of the spirit

among the flux of happenings.


Something had pestered me so much

I thought my heart would break.

I mean, the mechanical part.


I went down in the afternoon

to the sea

which held me, until I grew easy.


About tomorrow, who knows anything.

Except that it will be time, again,

for the deepening and quieting of the spirit.



I think, under our current circumstance, Mary might not mind if we changed the title to: Swimming, One Day in April.

Two Monks


Two monks were making a pilgrimage. During the course of their journey, they came to a river where they met a beautiful young woman — an apparently worldly creature, dressed in expensive finery and with her hair done up in the latest fashion. She was afraid of the current so asked the brothers if they might carry her across the river. 


The younger and more exacting of the brothers was offended at the very idea and turned away with an attitude of disgust. The older brother didn’t hesitate, and quickly picked the woman up on his shoulders, carried her across the river, and set her down on the other side. She thanked him and went on her way, and the brother waded back through the waters. 


The monks resumed their walk, the older one in perfect equanimity and enjoying the beautiful countryside, while the younger one grew more and more brooding and distracted, so much so that he could keep his silence no longer and suddenly burst out, “Brother, we are taught to avoid contact with women, and there you were, not just touching a woman, but carrying her on your shoulders!”  


The older monk looked at the younger with a loving, pitiful smile and said, “Brother, I set her down on the other side of the river; you are still carrying her.”

“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.”  ~Mary Oliver

“Smooth seas don’t make skillful sailors.”

“The Peace of Wild Things”


When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.

And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
