"Your friends will know you better

In the first minute you meet

Than your acquaintances

Will know you in a thousand years"


"You are led through your lifetime

By the inner learning creature

The playful spiritual being

That is your real self

Don't turn away from possible futures

Before you are certain you don't have anything

To learn from them

You're always free to change your mind and

Choose a different future......or a different past."


"There is no such thing as a problem

Without a Gift for you in its hands

Because you need their gifts."


"Every person, all the events of your life

Are there because you have drawn them there.

What you choose to do with them is up to you."


"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes

A farewell is necessary

Before you can meet again

And meeting again,

After moments or lifetimes

Is certain for friends."


"Illusions" by Richard Bach
