Marie Howe - Annunciation

Even if I don't see it again -- nor ever feel it
I know it is -- and that if once it hailed me
it ever does--

and so it is myself I want to turn in that direction
not as toward a place, but it was a tilting
within myself,

as one turns a mirror to flash the light to where
it isn't -- I was blinded like that -- and swam
in what shone at me

only able to endure it by being no one and so
specifically myself I thought I'd die
from being loved like that.


-- from Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words, by Kim Rosen

VIRUS DETECTED - Contagion Probabilities Still Undetermined.

Posted by athgarvan

Be on the alert for symptoms of inner Hope, Peace, Joy and Love. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

Some signs and symptoms of the Virus:

* A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on
  fears based on past experiences.
* An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
* A loss of interest in judging other people.
* A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
* A loss of interest in conflict.
* A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
* Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
* Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.
* Frequent attacks of smiling.
* An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
* An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.


Please send this warning out to all your friends. This virus can and has affected many systems. Some systems have been completely cleaned out because of it.
