In his book The Little Prince, French author, Antoine Saint-Exupery, asks us to consider a concept so simple it seems obvious, yet so simply wise it tends to escape the most intelligent of minds. “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye...It is the time you waste on your rose that makes your rose so important....”
I love that message! I “waste” time. And, I encourage all of us to do so - to “waste” time that we might see from the heart what is invisible. I encourage the wasting of our precious time on the roses in each of our own gardens of life. I challenge us all to “waste” as much time as we can on our loved ones - to meet them from our hearts. I uphold the “waste” of time on ourselves in acts of self love, on causes that arouse our passions and on simple pleasures of the heart that whisper to us of the eternal. I believe the time we “waste” is how we come to know....
A Place of Peace is my Rose, my passion, the whisper of the eternal in my heart. My work with so many beautiful people over the years here continues to touch my soul. Now, I look forward to this new sojourn as well. Thanks for sharing the journey with me.
I believe in the evolution of the human spirit toward a love and need for individual truth. I believe in the healing of our planet, and our people. I pray that I will understand more each moment I live how sacred life is in all its forms as I strive to grow in wisdom, reverence and respect. As I grow and mature, my plea is for increasing integrity in my life. I imagine peace - for myself and the world - that all may know the beauty and perfection of now.
A Place of Peace is within you! Teri
