I find it difficult to schedule the library, too--and I am a full time student
When I do afford that luxury for myself, I find myself in a temple. Some of the poems I have found in this book are also online, which leads me to surfing from poetry to sites of spiritual texts.
Each day, I focus my meditations and practices around a word...sometimes I post on Facebook or The Daily Om, another social media I sometimes frequent. Today, I attended a conference that focuses on issues of hunger in my state and ways to address the ever growing need (one in three children face hunger in Texas). I thought about hunger in spiritual terms...Jesus taught, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled." It is said that the subject of hunger is one of the most addressed issues in the Christian texts, both in physical and spiritual senses.
In the the tradition of Islam is is said that, “He is not a Muslim who goes to bed satiated while his neighbor goes hungry."
In my experience, I am best fed spiritually when I reach out and feed another being.
I was a tiny bug, now a mountain.
I was left behind, now honored at the head.
You healed my wounded hunger and anger,
And made me a poet who sings about joy.
