Reflecting on the fire of transformation

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.” -Rumi

When we open ourselves up to the nature surrounding us and change our thoughts, minds, and actions we transform the world.

“To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves; and what is important in beginning with ourselves is the intention. The intention must be to understand ourselves and not to leave it to others to transform themselves or to bring about a modified change through revolution, either of the left or of the right. It is important to understand that this is our responsibility, yours and mine…” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

“The wild divinity of the ocean infuses the shore with ancient sound, a primal conversation. The place where absolute change rushes against still permanence, where the urgency of becoming confronts the stillness of being, where restless desire meets the silence and serenity of stone. Beyond human seeing and knowing, the meeting of ocean and shoreline must be one of the places where the earth almost breaks through to word.” -John O’Donohue
