|Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.
Thank You for This Amazing Day
i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginably You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
E. E. Cummings (1894-1962)
American poet, painter and playwright
The whole of life lies in the verb seeing.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955)
French author, Jesuit priest and paleontologist
Arise, you little glancing wings
and sing your infant joy!
Arise and drink your bliss!
For every thing that lives is holy;
for the source of life
Descends to be a weeping babe;
For the Earthworm renews the
moisture of the sandy plain.
William Blake (1757-1827)
English poet, painter and printmaker
I believe a blade of grass is no less
than the journey-work of the stars.
Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
American poet journalist and humanist
You must concentrate upon and consecrate yourself
wholly to each day, as though a fire were raging in your hair.
Taisen Deshimaru (1914-1982)
Japanese Soto Zen Buddhist teacher
And now, the Last Word:
The question is not whether we will die,
but how we will live.
Joan Borysenko, Ph.D

I am at two with nature.
