“Now is the time” by Hafiz

Now is the time for the world to know That every thought and action is sacred. This is the time For you to compute the impossibility That there is anything But Grace. Now is the season to know That everything you do Is sacred. —Hafiz

A quote from Neale Donald Walsch on “the simple things of life”

Poems: “Ode to this moment” by Pablo Neruda

INSPIRATIONAL POEMS: “Seeking For Happiness” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Seeking For Happiness” Seeking for happiness we must go slowly; The road leads not down avenues of haste; But often gently winds through by ways lowly, Whose hidden pleasures are serene and chaste. Seeking for happiness we must take heed Of simple joys that are not found in speed. Eager for noon-time’s large effulgent splendour,…
