Quote of the Week 37 - Wind, Water, Stone
Wind, Water, Stone
BY OCTAVIO PAZ
Water hollows stone,
wind scatters water,
stone stops the wind.
Water, wind, stone.
Wind carves stone,
stone's a cup of water,
water escapes and is wind.
Stone, wind, water.
Wind sings in its whirling,
water murmurs going by,
unmoving stone keeps still.
Wind, water, stone.
Each is another and no other:
crossing and vanishing
through their empty names:
water, stone, wind.

Quote of the Week 32 - Noble Magic
“Invoking the spirit essence requires verbalizing it in order to bring the desired outcome to manifestation, or, if you become really good at it, simply thinking it is enough.”
From Magic of the Ordinary, Recovering the Shamanic in Judaism, by Rabbi Gershon Winkler
“Just as we use speech to praise the Holy, so should we use it to praise our fellow beings, for the noblest magic of all is to encourage another person to become what they potentially are, to say that right word at the right moment that may mark a turning point in another person’s life, that may lift a person from despair to creative growth in the process of true healing of the spirit.”
From ABRA K’A DABRA, by Bill Heilbronn
