My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
It's like not having to remember to breathe. I think we paralyze our ability to really live when we put too much pressure on ourselves to know and do everything a certain way. This aphorism allows us a little margin for error, freeing from expectations of what we should be to allow us, instead, to just be.
Yeah, I can live with that.
AcknowledgedTao Te Ching – Stephen Mitchell, trans. The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnameable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding.
Thanks for another profound message. I was just going through some old papers and saw this quote, if I may share with you:The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. - BuddhaWow, that's 2 messages today about "live." Good old universe is trying to tell me something! :)
I wish I had a manual, sometimes...
Me too @Vania..... will be back for more though :)
Kinda like that Nike ad really: "Just do it." :)
Deep thought.Thanks for sharing.
you live like a river where the flow takes you
Sometimes we need to stop trying to figure out how to live and 'just do it' (Nike). Melinda
