Never Any More Than There Is Right Now

right-nowIn the first talk our little “Sampler” group will listen to next month, Lila Wheeler offers this quote from Walt Whitman, which I pass on here to you:

Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems…

You shall no longer take things at second or third hand….

nor look through the eyes of the dead….

There will never be any more perfection than there is right now;

any more heaven or hell than there is right now.


The title of Lila’s talk is Joy and Gladdening. You can listen to it here.
