into the heart.

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”

adapt. adjust. change.

changes come from all directions and in various forms. i choose to meet these changes with the attitude of water. when water is confronted with a rock in it’s path, it doesn’t back-peddle, stop, and freak out about what to do. water does what it does: it flows, it adjusts its shape to the obstacle, embracing the obstacle, and continuing on its way. water takes the form of whatever contains it. water yields to the force of wind and gravity. yet it still maintains its own powerful force and beauty.

that’s how i want to adapt and adjust in the face of change and in the face of obstacles.

mind like water

outside yourself.

when you look at yourself from a universal standpoint, something inside always reminds or informs you that there are bigger and better things to worry about.–Albert Einstein

sometimes we have to make an all-out effort to avoid thinking that our world is the whole world, and, thus, living in a vacuum. often-times, we are so immersed in our experiences, our own situations/problems, and our own sorrows/joys, that we forget to enjoy and experience the joys/sorrows, situations/problems, and experiences of those around us. when we forget to do this, we don’t live life fully and we miss out on the rewards of sharing with others—-we miss the richness and fullness of a life spiced with living.
