The magic of life can be experienced in the 'mere' presence of a stone…
When we open our hearts we connect to the language that all of creation shares and become one with it's ultimate truth; we are all made with love by love.

I held a small stone and a wave came over me
Washing the sediment of falseness
I spoke to the stone and heard an echo
Embellishing the heart with truthfulness
I brought the stone to my lips and tasted
The fullness of life in its sweetness
I sat with the stone in silence
It spoke, 'Made with love by love.'
