A Child’s Laughter

laughing girl

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

Spirit blossoms!

Like a child’s laughter.
