“Flying Colors” | Anthony Satori
“I believe that if one were to always look up at the skies, one would end up with wings.”
— Gustave Flaubert
Every day, whenever you can, remember to place your attention and thoughts on the good things in your life, on all of the things that you are grateful for, and on everything that you wish to see grow and expand and thrive. Where you choose to focus your mental, spiritual, and emotional energy will determine what will become nourished and strong in your life, and you will become an active agent in the creation of your own best world.
“Honey Bee” | Anthony Satori
“To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”
— Mary Oliver
“Everness” | Anthony Satori
Strive to find happiness, gratitude, and inspiration in whatever good you may have in your life, right here, right now. This is the Everness of Zen.
There is no need to hurry to get there,
because there is only more here waiting there.
There is always more beauty in life when you love,
because even all becomes more when it’s shared.
There is no need to look too far forward or back,
because only now holds the essence of everness.
Find pleasure and calm in your presence of mind,
and your life won’t get lost into neverness.
“Exuberance” | Anthony Satori
Today I sang, I saw beauty, I spoke poetry, I felt joy.
I held wonder and sunlight in my open hands, until they overflowed.
And then I set out in search of you, to share the treasures I’d found.
“Pink and Yellow Rose” | Anthony Satori
“Infinitely at ease
despite so many risks,
with no variation
of her usual routine,
the blooming rose is the omen
of her immeasurable endurance.
Do we know how she survives?
No doubt one of her days
is all the earth and all
of our infinity.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke
“Palm Tree, Tractor, Wildfire” | Anthony Satori
“Do not go gentle into that good night; rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
— Dylan Thomas
“The Seagull” | Anthony Satori
Perhaps the seagull
was once a fish
who dreamed of the sky
that Nature eventually decided
to give her wings.
