This resonates both loudly and quietly at the same time. Beautiful.
So lovely put, yet it’s difficult to remember in my day to day and when I struggle.
I know…maybe it is in those days of struggle one should keep reminding oneself Stay safe
Yes, isn’t it 🙂
I like this quote a lot, just as I like the quote you selected for your Wisdom of the Tao page. I am curious, however, to know how you deal with apparent contradictions in such quotes? For example, in the quote for this page, we are encouraged to accept ourselves and the world around us as is; yet in the quote on your other page, it would seem we are encouraged to let go of what is, to embrace what might be.
I see what you mean, but to me it’s not a contradiction. The way I read it is more about being and having. The one refers to materialistic possessions and the other about turning inward…I think 🙂
“…I think” – I don’t think there are any right or wrong answers to that, just an interesting revelation of character in the way you look at it 🙂
Aha… so doctor, whats your diagnose for me 😉 We see things and life differently for sure 🙂
Diagnosis? Nah, that’s too much like a judgment, and that’s not something I do much of 🙂 I simply wanted to know what your perspective might be. I wouldn’t be so sure that we see things so differently … I actually like the idea of being happy with who and what I am, and I think much of this has to do with a general lack of materialism. I arrived at this through Stoicism (and, to some extent, the concept of Wyrd); which is why I find it fascinating when I encounter someone who arrives at a similar place, while approaching from a different direction 🙂
