Ive always loved friends of the Way,
Always held them dear.
Meeting a stranger with silent springs;
Greeting a guest talking zen;
Talking about mysteries on a moonlit night;
Searching for truth until dawn,
The tracks of our inventions disappear,
And we see who we really are.

We are birthed into sangha, into sacred community.
It is called the world.
We need to reclaim what we have for too long ignored
and neglected: the opportunity for active and meaningful
engagement in our own communities...
- Bill Shore, founder and executive director of Share Our Strength, a leading anti-hunger organization.
Faced with what seems like an impossible task,
a group of folks will do well to remember
the African proverb: When spider webs
unite they can tie up a lion.
Johnnetta B. Cole
Everyone can be great because anyone can serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to serve.
You don't even have to make your subject and your
verb agree to serve...
You only need a heart full of grace.
A soul generated by love...
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
There is a notion
that we left paradise
a long time ago.
was the Heart,
for our return.
- Pamela Wilson
