MY WISH FOR THE DAY
Today I would like to go to a magic land - to an island of peace and quiet, where words which have or can have disturbing meanings, do not exist in the local language - like power, money, sex, religion, war, drugs, violence, abuse, racism, politics - because there is no need for them. And where words like peace and freedom, equality and the right to self expression do not exist either - because those things are for granted. I would like to be small and happy and live among the tulips without worries and trusting my neighbors... I would like to sleep on a sheet of kindness and have loving dreams about friendly faces. I would like to be thankful, just thankful, without naming the recipient for my gratitude, I would like to send out smiles and receive smiles in return - yes I would like to stay there for a while, enjoying deep and meaningful and meditative breathing - then I would come back, strong and healthy of body and mind, ready to deal with reality again...
Would you like to join me?
