with every breath

bisse, arch 1

“With every breath I take today,

I wow to be awake;

And every step I take,

I vow to take with a grateful heart

So I may see with eyes of love

Into the hearts of all I meet,

To ease their burden when I can

And touch them with a smile of peace”.

A poem I like and whose author I do not know. I hope it is inspiring to you as it is to me.

    Your new autumn-header is real nice, and your photo lovely, it looks like a nice place to be. The beautiful words made me curious and send me at a long google-journey, to find out more. I ended at a buddish site, showing some “GATHA” (verse) useful at meditation. This vers is one of them. Very interesting, thank you. 🙂


  4. Thank you all for your warm messages, I appreciate your visits very much. giiid, that was really nice to look for the origin of this poem, it is in the Buddhist spirit indeed, I will go back to this site. Have a peaceful day all of you.

  5. It’s look like you are on the path to “enlightenment”…love the perspective, as you get out of the darkness the light awaits you
