The scriptures and the sacred teachings
Are a priceless gift –
But sometimes we need a break from our studies.
Discipline, practice and meditation
Can take you very far indeed –
But life isn’t all about solemn routine.
God isn’t confined to dusty tomes
And silent temples…
Free and formless like the wind;
Wild as a dancing flame;
Like buds in Springtime bursting
Here and there and everywhere;
With spontaneous joy and magic
Like a child’s laughter.
