Quote of the Day – January 29 2013

“This is what it is to be human: to see the essential existential futility of all action, all striving—and to act, to strive. This is what it is to be human: to reach forever beyond your grasp. This is what it is to be human: to live forever or die trying. This is what it is to be human: to perpetually ask the unanswerable questions, in the hope that the asking of them will somehow hasten the day when they will be answered. This is what it is to be human: to strive in the face of the certainty of failure.
This is what it is to be human: to persist.”
“For this is what it means to be human: to laugh at what another would call tragedy.”
— Spider and Jeanne Robinson, Stardance

 

I embrace my humanity and that of others. We’re the damnedest / blessedest creatures. We persist in perversity and we persist in glimmers of hope at the lowest moments. We persist sometimes when there seems to be no hope at all. Such beautiful ugliness in our shadow and sun.  We learn through tragedy as well and persist even then. We have so far to go to reach our potential but with such persistence we actually have a hope of getting there.
Blessings, G

  1. They are both lovely, G. They remind me of .. the energy of perseverance (like you mentioned persistence) and the crystals breaking through the veil of ‘forgetfulness’ when we were incarnated in 3D. I’ve started another art project and am enjoying every moment of it. Wishing you great success in your tarot card set/s.
    Much Reiki blessings,
    Agnes
