“The Wonderful Wonder Between the 'Onenesses' [10w] + [10w] + [10w] + [10w]
If you can imagine time running backwards, death becomes birth;

The moment before conception, becomes our oneness with the universe.

Therefore, we shouldn't fear death because oneness returns to oneness;

The wonder that happens between these onenesses is God's gift.”

“The Garden of Our Solar System
There are peonies on Pluto,
Orchids of Earth,
Roses on Saturn;
Meteor showers raining mirth.

Did you see
the junipers on Jupiter?
The marigolds on Mars?
Did you know
Sunflowers blossom
in the bellies of stars?”
Beryl Dov

“Comfort Zone
Your comfort zone has a clock on it,
ticking off until it becomes your death zone.”

“The Essence of love:
'What happens to you happens to me.”

“No point sweating the small stuff
because you've got cancer.”
Beryl Dov

“One of life's ironies is that when we finally receive attention
it's not precisely for the thing we really hoped for.”
Beryl Dov

“One night on the swing,

I pumped myself higher and higher

and plucked all the stars from the sky,

tucking them one by one

in my pocket,

between the licorice and baseball cards,

until all that remained

was the absolute dark

and the mischievous twinkle

of my eye

to guide me back

to my home.”
Beryl Dov
