On judging yourself less harshly

When you go into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees.
Some of them are bent,
some of them are straight,
some of them are evergreens
and some of them are – whatever.
And you look at the tree
and you just – allow it.
You appreciate it.
You see why it is the way it is,
you sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light,
and so it turned that way, and you don’t get all emotional about it, you just allow it.
You appreciate the tree.
Tree Head
The minute you get near humans,
you lose all that, and you’re constantly saying,“You’re too this,” or “I’m too this,” or – that judging mind comes in.

And so I practice turning people into trees,

which means appreciating them just the way they are.

-Ram Dass

The Moon Song

I’m lying on the moon
My dear, I’ll be there soon

It’s a quiet and starry place
Time’s we’re swallowed up
In space we’re here a million miles away

There’s things I wish I knew
There’s no thing I’d keep from you
It’s a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I’m safe and we’re a million miles away

We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I’m
Okay and we’re a million miles away

– Karen O.
