"Awaken From The Illusion Of Our Separateness"

"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn." ~ Henry David Thoreau

"We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

"Taking life for granted ~ such an easy thing to do, and such an important thing "not to." ~ Patty Ann Smith
