Some say, “An ocean storm is
rougher at night.” Some see land
in the horizon and a closer place,

where waves lap the shore. Others
see dark clouds, sailboats on water.
And some, viewing a circle of

bending worshippers, believe
the bugs behind the inner ring might
worship, too. Some say, “The kneeling

rocks can sing. The sky is too blue
to believe. And who’s to know what’s
behind the pink? The moon is

a magnet—the moon who has a smaller
sister.” And yes, upon looking closer,
some say, “She has two.” Some say,

“The queen is calling”—the queen
being a metaphor for anything one
can imagine or dream.

Inspired by the picture, “Queen’s Call,” on Miki’s blog

“The opposite of a scarcity mentality is an abundancy mentality. With an abundancy mentality we say: “There is enough for everyone, more than enough: food, knowledge, love … everything.” With this mind-set we give away whatever we have, to whomever we meet. When we see hungry people we give them food. When we meet ignorant people we share our knowledge; when we encounter people in need of love, we offer them friendship and affection and hospitality and introduce them to our family and friends.

When we live with this mind-set, we will see the miracle that what we give away multiplies: food, knowledge, love … everything. There will even be many leftovers.”

Emphasis mine.


With this mind-set, we can afford to be liberal. We can see that, if we cooperate, God will provide for all.
