Our Task

"One hand on the beauty of the world, one hand on the suffering of all beings and two feet firmly grounded in the task of the present moment."

~ from the Cathedral of Autun, France

Door of Being


Door of being, dawn and wake me,
allow me to see the face of this day,
allow me to see the face of this night,
all communicates, all is transformed,
arch of blood, bridge of the pulse,
take me to the other side of this night,
where I am you, we are us,
the kingdom where pronouns are intertwined,
door of being: open your being
and wake, learn to be ....

~ Octavio Paz ~
